In the title, around 70 characters with various skills make an appearance, including Jack Sparrow, Will Turner, and Elizabeth Swann. There are also more than 20 levels full of arcade sequences (platformer levels, combat) and simple logic puzzles. Each stage is focused on certain events from the movie original and enriched with cinematic cut-scenes.
