Scheherazade is a game developed by Dark Heart Games and published by Fantendo. It is an action/adventure game which revolves around the adventures of Scheherazade and her best friend Loubna. Many of the chapters in the game are based off stories from One Thousand and One Night, of which Scheherazade is the protagonist.
In Scheherazade you are able to explore the world in a 3D open world where you can move into any direction. You can walk with the normal control stick and move the camera around with the other. The game's gameplay can be compared to that of The Legend of Zelda although with notable differences.
There are various locations in the game that have to be explored. Each location often has a dungeon of which at the end lies a magical treasure. Throughout the game you obtain various treasures, useful objects etc. that can only be for collecting but also can be used as items in game. However Scheherazade is only able to wield one item at a time. She can switch between items using the R or L buttons to circle through the items. Another way is to touch the desired item on the gamepad itself when used.
The item that is equipped at that moment can be used by pressing the B-button. The Peacock Staff however has multiple elements to switch between for which the ZR or ZL buttons must be used. Jumping can be performed with the A-button. Interacting with persons, objects etc. can be done with the X-button. And lastly using the Jinn powers can be done with the Y-button.
The magical objects each have different properties. As said before the Peacock Staff has various elements attached to it and is the most offensive weapon in the game used to fight off enemies. However the elements have to be collected from different regions. Other objects like the Magic Carpet for example is used for hovering in the air, and can transport Shera much faster. The Magic Carpet however also has the use to quickly fly to a caravan rest point at any location visited on the map.
Jinns are magical creatures of which some are locked up in lamps, bottles, urns etc. while others were impossible to catch and still roam the world. Throughout the journey the Jinn, Genesis, becomes an ally of Shera. As he tags along his powers keep growing. He can be called for assistance and can remain outside of his lamp until his magic runs out. After that he returns.
A caravan rest point is another name for a save point. The caravan rest points are, as the name says, small points where caravans come to rest on their journey's. There is always one located in the big kingdoms.
There is a multiplayer option available for the game. The second player will control the best friend of Shera, Loubna, who otherwise would only appear in cutscenes along with Shera. While Loubna is in play she can also use the same magical items as Shera, as long Shera doesn't have that one equipped already.
