Ratings and Reviews
Enjoyable game aimed at beginners who enjoy "point & click" advenure games. However, if you have played Monkey Island and you expect this to be a similar game (like I did), apart from the pirate theme and some of the storyline, this game really is nothing like it. I am an avid fan of the Monkey Island series since they first came out and - in comparison - this game is way too easy to figure out so I finished it in a matter of hours. Not so many tricky and unusual puzzles and “out of the box” thinking in order to solve a problem or finish a mission (like the Monkey Island puzzles that left you stuck for days trying to figure it out). But instead a lot of talking your way through the game. Although it was enjoyable, it was definitely not worth 19.99 for a few hours enjoyment for me (I didn’t even get the 50% discount as stated on the description either!). Anybody who is used to playing these type of games will be absolutely wasting their money but if you are only a beginner you will enjoy it. Those who claimed that it was another “Monkey Island” must be insane and you will be disappointed if you buy this game based on that comparison.
Excellent adventure game, one for the whole family!!
I played the original of this game and it was a lot of fun, so I was very pleased to see it on the MacAppStore. It’s clever, witty and beautifully illustrated. Love the voice overs too, can’t believe they got Tom Baker, he has such a great voice, but they are all fun. The puzzles are creative and stretch your mind and your imagination. I would happily recommend the game to anyone of any age (12+ blah blah blah), it really gets you thinking and is great for a group to sit around and try and solve the mysteries. As a fan of adventure games, I would say this game has something for all levels of gamer, you won’t want it to end - I didn’t.
Love it! Great fun to play.
One of the funniest adventure games I've ever played - and Tom Baker's in it! Clever puzzles and a few adult jokes, but kids safe as in Disney movies. If you love British humour, this game is definitely for you.
