The game closely follows the plot of the original Three Musketeers novel. Players take control of the young gentleman d'Artagnan as he sets off for Paris in hopes of becoming a Musketeer. The game features an old school top-down perspective with hand drawn 2d graphics. Players duel enemies, gather loot, and fire muskets as they make their way through the main story. The setting of 17th France, which is uncommon in games, creates a unique gaming experience. Minigames and sidequests are specific to the setting - in one sidequest players help the inventor of the flintlock musket.
