is the latest game released by Yahtzee, as he continues to push the limitations of an aging AGS engine.

You're armed with a gun that can be fired repeated by holding down the TAB button. There is a bit of inventory management involved as your character can only carry a single item at any one time. A tutorial has been worked into the story seamlessly so you can get a feel of the controls without even noticing it.
