Escape from Lost Island
Worth Buying Lots of Fun
I enjoyed this game. Didn't need a strategy guide to play the game which is a joy!

PRETTY GOOD GAME
At first when I saw this game I thought I wasn't going to like it but I really did. At the beginning a girl has to escape from a sinking ship and you have to prepare her for her escape. Then she arrives on an unknown island and has to do a series of things to keep her out of trouble. I am only about half way finished but thought I would write my review now because I really enjoy playing this one.

Difficut but enjoyable
I love HO games with key objects - click on one and a ring of other objects to find opens up.
You also have to think a bit with this one, for instance, you may need to find several coils of rope or vines, but they won't be coiled, look for them just strung through the trees.
Some objects are impossible to find - I've made notes of the worst ones so that when I replay I don't spend so much time waiting for the hint to refill, although many of the scenes are pretty enough and detailed enough for me to enjoy just studying them while I wait!

Mostly just an HOS game
No real story here and not many mini games. Lots and lots of HOS and a lot of the object are really teeny and almost hidden behind something else. For what it's supposed to be, it serves the purpose.

There are far better island rescue games than this one
It's called Lost Island for a reason. No one wants to find it. I only played the demo but found no redeeming features. Nonsensical plot has a lone passenger of a sinking cruise ship (how did everyone else leave?) having to use catapults to put out fires (why if it's sinking?) before leaving the ship. Then she gets captured by natives but is still able to get around the island finding things to do. These things are in the form of objects to find but they're the kind where you click on an area and five circles appear with a single item in each one. Once you find all of them, that "task" is done. You now have the fun job of doing four more tasks in the same scene with four different areas containing the five circles...yada yada yada. It's a lather, rinse, repeat kind of game with slow movement between scenes and zero movement of storyline. Try it and see for yourself. The artwork is not bad to look at but the items to find are frequently very small or in dark places. There are no voiceovers but you get to hear dentist office music throughout. This game is very old and plays like it too. The developer is known for sometimes quirky storylines and humorous touches but this game doesn't have any of that. I just found it odd and boring. Read the forum reviews to find out more if you're that curious but really, there are far better games to spend your money or free coupons on.
