An adventure game for the SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem developed by Human Entertainment. Known as ''Septentrion'' in Japan, the U.S. version was released by Creator/VicTokai. Basically take {{The Poseidon Adventure}} and turn it into a side-scrolling platformer and this is what you'll end up with. The Lady Crithania capsizes during a storm and it's up to you to escape with your life. Along the way you will encounter other passengers and crew who you must try to rescue... [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential or not]]. You have to escape within [[TimedMission one real life hour]] or it's game over.

You play as one of four [[MostGamersAreMale adult males]] trying to escape. Each character starts in a different part of the ship, and must rescue a certain person to get their good ending. Depending on your character's personality, passengers may come with you right away or refuse to come along at all; you must balance time spent rescuing people with time spent escaping. In general, [[EarnYourHappyEnding the more people rescued]], [[MultipleEndings the better the ending]]. With the exception of drowning, the only penalty for getting hurt is to Lose 5 Minutes, which is also the only time you get to see how much time you have left.

* NeverSayDie: The word “perish” pops up entirely too often. Only averted twice – in the opening scrawl, and in one throwaway line where the character says “die” only because “parish” wouldn't fit on the screen.

Added DiffLines:

* RuleOfDrama: Some characters will flat out refuse to leave their position or do something about their situation for several reasons that defy common sense. One character in particular won't try to save himself because he lost a violin, ''a violin''.
