Mysterious Island
Virgin Sounds and Vision
1996
3rd person interactive cartoon adventure

Story

Tomas, Lily and Will meet at the amusement park and decide to take a hot air balloon ride even though there is a storm and the ride is "officially" closed. Will convinces the Pilot (you) to take them up anyway and naturally your balloon gets hit by lightening and lands on a mysterious volcanic island.

Puzzles

Puzzles are few - it's more of a click and watch the characters move and talk type of game. The ones that are there are of the figure out the pattern to raise a rock bridge, put statues in the right hole to open a door, figure out how to get past a very large snap dragon - that sort of thing. A couple of inventory items to pick up but you never use them so I'm not sure why you bothered.

The game is very much geared towards kids - I'd say between 5 and maybe 9 or 10 (and that might be pushing it). The characters talk to you - ask you which direction they should go, what cave to enter first, how should you get past this animal, that sort of thing. Younger kids will probably get a kick out of that. But there is a big dinosaur that pops up at one point and could scare a little one.

Hi holly - I do have to agree that I enjoyed playing it - it was kind of nice not to have to rip my hair out and throw things at the computer because I got so frustrated lol I have no idea if I got the good ending or not - we made it back and didn't get caught by the bad guys but you know what? I trapped that poor dinosaur and just thought about it - how will he get out? Oh no! eek It wasn't an asteroid that made the dinosaurs go extinct - it was ME! arrrggghhh
laugh

What endings have you gotten? I've never written a walkthrough in my life - wouldn't even know where to begin <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" />

hi
sorry for the delay in writing back..my modem died on me..and i had to geta new one. talk about withdrawal!!!
i played it times and got 3 different endings.. i think it depends on which paths you take ..and how long it takes you to do the tasks that makes the endings different.

syd
you can either trap the dinosaur or you don't have to.. just have to find another path to take.. and it leaves you less time to do the tasks.
also ..you write such good reviews syd..i bet you'd do great at writing walkthroughs. smile
lasanidine..
i never got the ending where i think they got the gold or whatever it is they were suppose to get. just kept getting the endings where they barely made it off the island.
