Revive la historia de Robinson Crusoe, pero no lo hagas jugando a este juego. Mejor coge el libro y lee. En ésta aventura, naufragas y vas a parar a una isla desierta donde... ¡pasan movidas raras! Tranquilos, no estamos en la serie "Perdidos", pero el argumento está al mismo (bajo) nivel.
Una vez echamos un vistazo, nos damos cuenta de que el juego va de dos cosas: supervivencia y exploración.
En la parte de supervivencia tendremos que recoger vegetales y animales que cocinaremos para recuperar fuerzas. Esto ocurre durante la primera parte del juego y llega algo que me toca mucho los huevos: la posibilidad de quedarse atascado en una aventura gráfica. Voy a contarlo, así que va un poco de SPOILER si aún quieres jugar a este engendro: antes de adentrarte en la isla, la protagonista que controlamos está debilucha, y no es porque sea una vegana pesada, sino que es porque lleva sin comer tiempo y tenemos que alimentarla. Recorremos la isla y encontramos varias cosas, pero al ir combinando objetos para, por ejemplo, abrir un coco, puede que lo rompamos y nos quedemos sin comer, por lo que nuestra barra de "fuerza", por así decirlo, no subirá, y de esta forma corremos el peligro de quedarnos sin comida y sin opción de recuperar fuerzas.
La otra parte del juego es exploración, donde nos iremos de turismo por la isla en la que iremos haciendo cosas sin saber muy bien porqué. Te encuentras cosas y las usas en otros sitios sin motivo alguno, y más adelante son útiles, pero cuando las usaste no lo eran. ¿Porqué demonios iba yo a deducir que había que usar ese objeto ahí?
El juego presume de que hay muchas opciones de combinar objetos para resolver las situaciones, pero lo cierto es que pierde el interés bastante rápido.
Al final te das cuenta que el único que ha naufragado no eres tú, sino el juego.

Pues la idea me gusta. Eso de poder resolver las cosas de varias maneras y no sólo uno, está bien. Sí. Está bien, pero mal ejecutado. A veces mezclas dos cosas y aparece que necesitas dos cosas más que no tienes ni sabes cuáles son para obtener un objeto que tampoco sabes cuál es. ¿Cómo sé entonces que voy a obtener un objeto si no sé que necesito ni lo que va a resultar de ello? Un rollo.
Quitando la parte de exploración, ¿es una aventura de misterio? Fue concebida como tal, pero este aborto yo lo llamaría "juego de aburrimiento", porque la parte de juego que tiene me recuerda a "Huntsman: The orphanage", una aventura en la que lo único que tienes que hacer son tareas de lo más aburridas.

Myst meets Jules Verne's Mysterious Island, a match made in heaven. Does "Return to Mysterious Island" live up to these two great pieces of work? Short answer is: Yes!

It's 2014 now and it's been over 10 years since this game was released on PC, and then re-released on MacOS four years later. Created by Kheops Studio an indie company and published by The Adventure Company back in 2004 and now finally in 2014 available to buy on Steam. Kheops Studio is a game company that primary makes puzzle adventure games and it shows that they know the ropes when it comes to creating a fun and challenging adventure title with an interesting setting that mixes both fiction and fact. The studio is now well known for releasing successful adventure titles on the PC.

Many adventure games are known for getting the player stuck constantly, but I never had this "problem" when playing the game. From the very start of the game, keen eyes and basic common sense will keep you busy trying out different survival techniques and before I knew it I was hooked. There's something about an adventure game that has more than one way of solving a problem with different item combinations than having only one absolute solution that makes you want to keep coming back. The setting of the game is also enjoyable as you're basically thrown into an exotic island full of beauty and told to survive.

The game is very much like Myst in that you control it from a first person perspective and the world consist of different animated images that you can pan around in. You never get a feeling that you're just going through a set of images as the animations are top notch and they bring the world to life. I did a live stream of this game and the audience, as well as me, concluded that the game looks crisp and clean despite its age. That's one of the plusses to these type of titles: they age really well and don't feel dated at all.

The puzzles and problem solving aren't too difficult once you get a hang of it and the UI is easy to use as well and the whole game is playable with the mouse alone. Don't get me wrong though, there are a lot of head scratching moments later on but the game eases you in just the right amount throughout the game. Mina, the main protagonist, gives hints and provides just enough bare information to ensure you don't get stuck too often. Later on if you manage to fix your phone watch you are provided with even more information on items in a form of an in-game encyclopedia.

Many events in the game are pushed forward with hand drawn comic style cutscenes that are voiced and have vivid sounds, and it turns out to be a very effective way to keep the plot moving and you interested. They also act as a reward for figuring out a small puzzles.

The game also keeps a score for everything you do and says the "more improvised the solution, the more points you get" which essentially just translates to don't do stupid things, like try smash a coconut open with a rock when you have an improvised knife as you'll lose some of the contents. If you reach 100, 200 and 300 in score you are rewarded with hidden art work in the main menus gallery which is a nice bonus but nothing too great.

All in all Return to Mysterious Island still holds strong even today. The graphics look detailed and alive and the puzzles are fantastic. As for story all I can say is that it's probably the only weak point of the game. It's a mixture of fiction and fact as I stated earlier and relies heavily on Jules Vernes novel and there isn't any kind of arching of the character.

The story of the island is however believable and interesting with a lot of history and well thought out locations, but the game ends almost abruptly and as such is relatively short. Only 4 to 6 hours of game depending on how quick your wits are and this perhaps might turn some people away from a purchase.

There is a sequel to the game that pretty much continues right off of the first game in a very corny fashion, but I have yet to complete that game but when I do I will write a review of that game too as the time comes. Also I will live stream it on Twitch. (Shameless self promotion *cough*)

8/10 - "Monkey goodness."

I liked this game back when it was new and I am glad to see it here on STEAM.

It is a very nice adventure game with a good story, nice graphics and tons of items used in puzzles (often with different solutions!). It even has some replay value, because you get points for all you do and all puzzles you solve - and you can always try to get a better score and look which solution you might have missed last time.

If you can get over the "old" display settings and are into adventure games, you should give this a try. But beware - you might end up like me, searching for more games from the guys who made this.
