The Treasures of Mystery Island
Great Fragmented Object Game
If you are looking for a fragmented object game, this is the game to go for! You are crash-landed on a tropical island, and before you can return home, you have to collect items from the plane's storage and help out to clean up the mess on the island.
This game offers you lots of fragmented object scenes in which get pictures of the objects you need to collect, and you have to find the fragments of those objects. This can be a real challenge since many of these fragments are very small and well camouflaged. The game is relatively long and offers lots of different scenes. After you found all the fragmented objects, you need to find in the same scene objects associated with a specific job (like: objects for a musician, a teacher, ...). That is sometimes annoying, since this is far too easy and not on the same challenge level as the rest of the game.
There are minigames which are often challenging and which can't be skipped. There is also no hint option for the minigames available - this might be a weakness for some players. But the mini-games are never too hard, so you might need some time with them, but eventually, you'll crack them.
For the fragmented object scenes, a "hint" is available in the form of a stone which works like a witching stick: You'll have to go over the whole scene to see where it shines and moves most in order to find it.

I played this game long before BFG ever started reviews. It was one of those games that I played over, and over, and over again. Being an older Navy man, an avid scuba diver, and a private pilot, I have always been interested in the "The Bermuda Triangle". As a result I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Very good graphics, testy HOS, and clever story line. I have to say it is one of my TOP favorite HOG games.

I absolutely loved finding little pieces of objects instead of the usual lists, made me feel the same sort of satisfaction as when completing an actual jigsaw puzzle. Wish it were longer and a little more challenging - I played it a few times and finished in a few hours but was very entertained.
