In Amazon Tales, the goal is to find a runaway elephant and vaccinate it against a disease in order to bring it back to its home village. The vet Gemma Hunter takes over this task and has to master 7 levels in total. She has to defend herself against the many dangers of the jungle (dangerous animals, hostile tribes, temple guards and many other nasty surprises) either by dodging or by throwing stones. Helpful are Gemma glowing idol figures, which make her invulnerable for some time and holy treasure chests, which give her a life. In the beginning Gemma has 3 lives.
The background graphics in the game and the sprites were lovingly created according to the story. The intro and in-game music are composed to match the game.
The game is played with a joystick in port 2:
- Key = : Pause game.
- Key = : Exit game.
There are points for shot down opponents.
There are two helpful items in the game that either protect for a short time (idols) or help to give you an extra life (treasure chests). If possible, collect the items.

Jodigi: "Very impressive what kind of game you can still develop for a C64 these days, even if the final completion took about 7 years...! So playing the C64 is fun again!"
FXXS: "Thanks to a generous number of extra-life treasure chests and fair starting levels even for beginners in the sidescroller genre fun and technically there is little to complain about. 8 points."
