The Treasures of Mystery Island: The Ghost Ship
What a pleasure it was to play The Treasures of Mystery Island: The Ghost Ship. This newly released hidden object/adventure game is like a nice fresh breeze. Without offering anything particularly new, this game mixes together the old ingrediants to come up with something new to the taste.
At first you don't really take this seriously, but upon arriving to the island you understand that there are reasons to believe the rumours.
The game begins by introducing you to the story. You learn that you are going to play as a young woman who was assigned to write an article about an island attacked by ghosts. Fearlessly you set to investigate this case.
At first you don't really take this seriously, but upon arriving to the island you understand that there are reasons to believe the rumours. You yourself encounter several ghosts as you explore the island. Soon you learn about the Ghost Ship and its passengers.
Doesn't sound too unique so far, does it? That's true there is nothing unusual about a mysterious story and an island with ghosts. But the gameplay is what makes the game unique. You will have to go from one location to another. Each location will have a couple of items to be found. You are shown what they are and then you collect pieces of those items.
Sotimes you will have to unlock or break something in order to get one last piece. The trick is that sometimes you will have to visit a number of other locations and use quite a few items before you are able to get that one last piece from the first location. All of the items are intertwined so well in this game. You can tell that it took lots of work to make things so complicated here.
There are also different kinds of puzzles here and there. They fit into the game's story very well and are fun to play. The game also has about 70 beyond items that you collect in all of the scenes.
There are two modes in The Treasures of Mystery Island: The Ghost Ship. The easier one is challenging enough. For even more fun - pick the more difficult one. The graphics are absolutely gorgeous and beautiful. The music is very enjoyable too, making the game so pleasant both in its content and form.
To my humble opinion the game is perfect in every part of it.
