Cruise Clues: Caribbean Adventure - Jewelry Case
Some of the games developers tend to find new stuff to get into the games to offer something new and fresh. While others keep to the well-known, and some would say well-worn ideas.
The latter would be the case with Cruise Clues: Caribbean Adventure where you play as Angelina, an FBI agent who's tracking down an
elusive jewel thief known only as the King of Diamonds.
Most of the game will be spent searching for him

these instances you won't be able to find one until the other has been
cleared out of the way. Occasionally you'll also have to find a tool in
order to get access to a hidden object.
The only breaks in the object finding action comes
from the odd mini-game that the game throws at you in between scenes.
Again, these are pretty straightforward, and consist of traditional HOG
mini-games like spot the difference or memory.
You can't skip puzzles, the experience is
completely linear, and some of the design choices really make the game
