In free adventure game, The Earl Octopusor, one of the squiggly fiends mugs an innocent sailor, who dispatches a last-second call for help to adventurer, Miss Libellule. As said adventurer, you dive underwater to hunt for the Octopus' treasure by completing puzzles in a beautifully illustrated aquatic realm.

The Earl Octopusor is the latest adventure game from Jo99, and the second to star Miss Libellule, after her debut in The Queen of Snakes. If you've played a point-'n-click before, you'll glide right in easily. A lot of the puzzles require careful examination of the dense artwork and there's a bit of slightly obtuse pixel-hunting to find hotspots in the busier environments, but the overall effect is endearing.
