Onesimus gameplay

A scene from the game.

The game is inspired on the life of Saint Onesimus, a runaway slave from the New Testament.

The game is actually a reskin of Jill Saves the Prince, part of the Jill of the Jungle series, and is therefore considered a spin-off of it.

The game features most of the same elements as Jill Saves the Prince including items and enemies, altough some were redesigned. The levels included are the same as Jill Saves the Prince, but there also are some from its prequels.
