The objective of the game is to explore castles, collect gems, and find the exit.
Clyde, the main character, has a supply of energy that depletes whenever he walks, jumps, or falls from a great height. If his energy reaches 0, it causes Clyde to die with a shriek. With no "enemies," Clyde's Adventure is predominantly a puzzle game. The challenge comes from avoiding traps, using Clyde's magic wand to manipulate the environment, and finding the most efficient route before Clyde runs out of energy.
The game has two chapters, "Lost Treasure of Tahookaboo" and "The Vanished King", each containing 16 castles.
A sequel, Clyde's Revenge, was released in 1995.
