Adam and Eve 5: Part 1, known stylistically as Adam and Eve 5: Part I., is one half of the next installment of the popular point-and-click series. Previously, Adam found his first love, Eve, wearing a new hairstyle and living alone. After Adam made an overture with the player's help, they restarted their passionate relationship.
Yet Adam hasn't learned that relationships require attention and care from both parties. After eating an apple, he tosses it aside and abandons Eve to run off on another adventure. A saddened Eve walks away.
The player once again helps Adam deal with a variety of obstacles that block the road before him. In each scene, they must find a solution to a problem. Typically, they use logic, scientific concepts and simple machines to remove an obstacle. For example, they might use a hollow tube to breathe underwater, a pole to vault over a wall, or a vine as a rope. A scene might not show Adam until the player solves the problem.
It's important to note that the player might need to think of harmful or unrealistic solutions. For example, they might need to play a trick on or physically hurt an animal or person to scare them away from a tool or other object that can help Adam leave a spot. They might need to use the cap of a giant mushroom as a shield or direct a shaman to craft a magic potion that gives Adam feathers so he can fly.
