Shrek takes place after the movie. Shrek and Fiona are married and living happily until Fiona is captured by an evil wizard, Merlin, who has placed a seemingly impassable fog to guard his fortress. The fog can be breached by completing good deeds. The Magic mirror gives Shrek a mission book which guides him through the world.


The player completes objectives ("Good Deeds"). In most objectives, the player hunts for an object and completes an action. Not many objectives vary from this outside of a few. Notably, Shrek's ally and best friend, Donkey, does not appear in the game, neither is he mentioned.
