* EscortGame: You play as the Skipper with Gilligan following you everywhere, contributing nothing but asinine comments like "Isn't this beautiful scenery, Skipper!" You can't be apart for more than 2 minutes, and he needs to be with you whenever you talk to an NPC to get the next FetchQuest. To make things worse, he has a tendency to get stuck on obstacles and fall into pits leading to previous areas.
* FetchQuest: The entire game is based around talking to the next NPC or finding the next item, occasionally having to fight a boss for it. At one point, Mary Ann asks you to tell Mr. Howell that "dinner won't be for a while", then Mr. Howell says he needs a piece of Mary Ann's pie, and after another round trip to actually get and deliver the pie, Mr. Howell finally tells you that Mary Ann had the "secret weapon" you were looking for the entire time.
