This is a game where you can select one of 3 character types - thief, fighter and magic user. Each character can progress through the game following a slightly different path. The walkthrough that follows contains all of the general tasks that are to be completed. If one character type differs, it will be indicated specifically.
After talking to Abdulla Doo, stand up and go outside. You need to find the money changer, so use your map and look at the street signs to get there (go north from Gate Plaza to find Fountain Plaza, then take the west exit and follow this road to its end, going right, left and left at the forks). At the money changer, talk to Dinarzad and exchange money (in increments of 50 coins or less to get the best trading rate).
- If you are a thief, make the thief sign at Dinarzad.
Again use the map that came with the game to make your way back to Gate Plaza. Buy a map and compass from Ali Chica, and give a centime to Shih'had the beggar when you find him. Now you can use your map to get around. Go to Fountain Plaza and enter the apothecary. Talk to Harik Attar about potions, pills and oils. Ask him about fire and earth.
- If you are a thief, buy some oil.

Pick the lock on the door and sneak inside. Take the tea service from the shelves. Oil the hinges on the wardrobe and open the wardrobe, then search it to get an emerald bowl. About now, the first man will come in but will not see you. Move the rug and open the trapdoor; when you hear voices, roll back the rug and hide. After the second man has gone, move the rug again, pick the lock and search the chest. When you hear voices again move the rug and hide in the wardrobe. After the 3rd man has gone, leave.

Ask the Djinni about wishes, then wish for any two skills (or health and 1 skill), then ask to be teleported.
Walk to the other side of the plaza.
- If you are a thief, throw a dagger at the Eunuch patrolling the wall, then use your magic rope to climb up and go left. After the harem scene, sneak towards the statue, then wait for the Eunuch to pass and sneak left to the table. Wait for him to pass by again, then sneak through the doorway.

- If you are a fighter, you will automatically fight the stone statue, but since you can't win just escape. Run into the unlit candle, and keep running left past the brazier, which will catch on fire. Run through the flames at Ad Avis and you will knock him down.
- If you are a magic user, cast Trigger on the statue, then Force Bolt on the unlit candle. After Ad Avis' first spell doesn't work on you (assuming you used Reversal), go to the middle of the screen and cast a Force Bolt on the wall between the left and second from left pillars up on the balcony; this should rebound off the brazier and end up killing Ad Avis.
