EcoQuest is an educational point and click adventure game by Sierra, with a
large focus on saving the environment. The game involves a boy named Adam, who
one day finds that his father has rescued a dolphin from the ocean. The dolphin
asks Adam to go on a journey under the ocean to save a whale named Cetus from a
vicious manta-ray known as Flesh-Eater. Although EcoQuest is quite easy, it
suceeds in being a well made and interesting educational game.
The game starts in an office near the beach, where an oil-covered seagull has
been found by Adam's father. Look at the seagull. Get the bottle of detergent
and the clean rag. Use the bottle of detergent on the clean rag, and then use

the left side of the desk and throw it in the bin. Look at the books above the
computer five times, and then look at the computer. Look at the board to view
the diagram for the sattelite buoy. Talk to the rug in the middle of the room,
and then look at the fish tank.
Use the fertilizer solution to clean the oil off the coral. Use the keypad on
the door. Enter the code from the manual, and press E to open the door and
enter the laboratory. Look at the propeller on the speedboat. Look at the board
to read the instructions. Talk to the dolphin three times and get a mackarel
from the bucket. When the dolphin stops swimming, throw the mackarel into the
pool. Throw another mackarel into the pool, and then climb into the pool.
Hold onto the dolphin's fin after he stops swimming. Climb out of the pool and
get the frisbee on the counter. Throw the frisbee in the pool six times and
catch it when it is thrown back. After the fourth time, the dolphin will say
that his name is Delphineus. Pull the lever at the right side of the pool to
open the hatch. Open the door to return to the laboratory and open the cupboard
to get the scuba gear. Use the scuba gear on Adam to enter the ocean.
Swim north twice to the cruise ship. Get the closed glass jar at the left side
of the area, and recycle the two items on the left to create a path through the

apartments, he will tell you to search for the Oracle.

puzzle. Solve the puzzle by moving the tiles or clicking the Help button.
After solving the puzzle, look at the marble wall at the right side of the
temple and put the trident in the three eyes. The Oracle will appear to ask
three questions. Click the man for the first answer, click the fish for the
second answer, and click the heart for the third answer. After correctly
answering the three questions, the Oracle will tell you to find 'The Sign of
Trust'. Exit the temple and enter the round building.
Talk to the room and the senator will ask you to solve the column puzzle. Move
the columns at the left side of the room so that they match the columns at the
right side of the room. After solving the puzzle, talk to Superflous the crab.

pot, sheet, shoe, soda cans, spray bottle, tire, vegetable can and wheel. Use
the fertilizer solution on the whale statue and talk to Demeter the lobster.
Get the shell that drops from the statue and swim east. Swim to the top-left
corner of the area to arrive at the fish apartments. Get the cotton cloth at
the top of the steps. Recycle the candy box, cap, plate, shirt, shoe, sock,

Exit the apartment. Enter the bottom-middle apartment and talk to Gregarious to
swim to the boat on the surface.
Talk to the fisherman. Open the inventory and put the four screws in the cage.
Use the steel cage on the propellers at the back of the boat to return to the
fish apartments. Recycle the sushi sandwich and the wine bottle, and then get
the water pump at the left side of the area. Enter the top-left apartment and
recycle the bleach bottle on the table.
Put the water pump in the window to wake up Olympia the lionfish. Exit the
apartment to receive the gold mask from the senator. Look at the marble wall at
