Kate Arrow: Deserted Wood Kate Arrow receives an e-mail from her grandfather, an explorer searching for the lost idols of a friendly tribe that saved his life twenty years ago. He forgot the last idol back home, and asks her help to retrieve and bring the artifact to the jungle. Kate finds the statuette, and flies to the place on her private plane following an ancient map. The aircraft stalls and she's left stranded in the wilderness, having to use her wits to reach the secluded village.

Kate Arrow: Deserted Wood is a point-and-click adventure and hidden object game. The main objective is to gather a series of inventory items and use them on specific places to solve puzzles. The hidden object scenes can be accessed by clicking on the sparkling areas found on some locations. They take place on a separate screen, where the goal is to find and click on all the objects listed at the bottom. The hint button at the left corner shows the position of one of the required items when activated, but takes some time to recharge after use. A new inventory object is received after completing one of these seek-and-find challenges.

The inventory tray sits at the bottom, sliding up to reveal its contents when the cursor is hovering over it, and automatically receding down when the mouse pointer is moved away. The stored objects have to be dragged and dropped from it to an appropriate and logical portion of the scenery to perform all the required actions and complete the pending tasks. At certain points, the player has to solve mini-games by manipulating a mechanism of some sort to open safes, set a series of gears in sequence, reassemble jigsaw puzzles and finish other similar challenges.
