The game begins with a series of cinematic cut scenes. The first scene shows a cargo ship sinking somewhere in the North Atlantic amid a violent ocean storm. Aboard the ship is a collection of 15 priceless paintings belonging to Professor Vambery. Both the professor, who is also aboard the ship, and the paintings are presumed to have been lost to sea. The second scene shows the Director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art calling Ellen Cross, an art expert and restorer working for the museum, about the shipwreck. The third scene shows Ellen, who is revealed to be suffering from a terminal but undisclosed blood dyscrasia, receiving the last supply of medicines for her disease, which are no longer being manufactured, from her doctor, Doctor Henderson. The fourth scene shows Ellen receiving another phone call from the museum director, several weeks later, with the news that one of the paintings from the missing Vambery collection has now resurfaced in Budapest, Hungary. She is told to travel there to authenticate the painting. The final scene shows Ellen arriving at Budapest. She is greeted there by the Inspector of Police, Bizlos Lazlo.

You cannot lose the game by dying. An automatic save is triggered when you exit the game. Automatic checkpoints are also created from which you can select to load when you resume the game. You cannot make manual saves.
The game has a total score of 300 points and awards a total of 20 trophies. Some trophies can be missed if certain unwanted actions are done, even though the game may continue to progress. Completing the optional prologue (Budapest) earns 43 points and awards 1 trophy. If the prologue is skipped, the points are instead credited automatically to the base score but no trophy is awarded.
Ellen needs to take medications and food periodically to restore her health. Her health must always be in the green or yellow zone and not in the red zone, otherwise she complains that she feels too unwell to continue. Up to 3 lots of medications and food can be combined. Whiskey and sleeping pills have negative health effects. Apples and pears have positive health effects. Some combinations can yield positive or negative synergistic health effects that are above and beyond their addictive health effects. In the Vambery manor, Ellen can take as many apples and pears as she can carry from the kitchen.
