    Destination: Treasure Island (Adventure)

    This is a large file adventure game, over a gigabyte in size. Nice
    graphics, narrated story and... ACK! The dreaded 360 degree perspective!
    Much like Return to Mysterious Island, any items you pick up go into a
    kind of pile, from whence you can place into slots in the order you
    choose. To access the menu, inventory, etc, just right-click your mouse.

    When the game first opens, you're left with a sense of, "OK... no
    instructions, what am I supposed to do??" A little looking about will
    reveal that your cursor will change when you mouse-over an object that
    you can interact with.

    I really love that there are built-in hints. If you've got part of the
    problem figured out, but need more help, you don't necessarily need to
    go look up the solution: you can get a written and/or verbal hint -
    sometimes both. Like Green Moon, there is a journal that keeps track of
    what you supposed to do, and items are crossed off the list when you
    complete these tasks. Still, don't be mistaken, this game does not hold
    your hand. Like most adventure games, there is a LOT you have to figure
    out on your own!

    I lasted a bit over 20 minutes without having to go to the walkthrough
    to see what I'd missed Problem is that something I missed was in a place
    I couldn't go back to, so my tasks are slightly different than in the
    walkthrough.

    Story - Interesting follow-up to the classic Treasure Island story.
    Graphics - Lush and beautifully rendered.
    Perspective - 360 degrees - where you move the mouse is where you see.
    Music - Very nice, appropriate for the atmosphere and I did not have to turn it down.
    Game Play - More intuitive than many adventure games, but still very challenging.

    DON'T FORGET! True adventure games (such as this) require MANUAL saves!

    I think that those that enjoy adventure games (and can take the
    360-degree view) will definitely like this game... Unless you don't like
    pirates, tropical islands or talking Macaws
