Robinson Crusoe and the Cursed Pirates
A Breath of Fresh Air
With so many dark games out there it was a delight to find this gem. Quirky, fun, different, a decent length, with interesting mini-games that are different to what you would normally find. I laughed out loud many times in this game.

One of my favorites!
I love the Robinson Crusoe games. The illustrations are gorgeous, and the puzzles are a lot of fun. The HOs in the games are very good and always deliver a little extra challenge. I would love to see more from this developer.

Review of a finished game...
There is nothing fancy about this game. It is very creative w/ the HO's, funny, and keeps you wanting more. Just a good ole fashioned game..instead of putting alot of effort into color, morphing objects, ect. They put that effort into a the puzzles and HO's. Very nice. From start to finish you will not be disappointed. This one is a winner through and through.

Great sense of humor
You are trying to create a magic potion to release the pirates from their curse so that you can escape the island. There are 25+ different locations, each with it's own special character and set of items. The puzzles are clever, the graphics are great. The humor had me giggling. You can skip the puzzles if you wish and the hint refills quickly. Macabre in an Addams family way.

This an entertaining, very different type HOG. Some of the HOG are hard, some not. I just Hint when I need to. There are several different - I guess you would call them 'mini-games' but they are a part of each area you go to. the mini-games are very different from what I have seen before and so far I have not seen any duplicate games. I will admit that at times I think it is too easy.... so I guit for awhile then find it is not as easy as I had thought. Guess I need to take a break sometimes. Some may think this is for the younger players but overall this game is for anyone who wants a different type HOG game.

Men of Low Morals
This game was an absolute hoot. I was laughing the entire time. The graphics are disturbing and adorable at the same time and wonderful to explore. I enjoyed each scene immensely even the ones that were just "wrong". You'll know what I mean when you get there.
After hearing the story and accepting your mission, you travel around the island map visiting various locations. Each location has the potential to yield a cursed black spot if you successfully complete the tasks in the scene. You start by removing a given number of particular objects. Then you're given a task list for the HOS. In order to get some of the objects on the list you must complete mini-games and puzzles by interacting with other items and characters in the scene. This was alot of fun.
After receiving each black spot, you have the option of adding them to the barrel of potion and testing the results on the angry monkey which produces hilarious results.
I only played for the trial hour. To find out what happens next, you'll just have to buy the game. Then YOU can tell ME.

Good solid game - lots to do.
I really enjoyed this game as it was quite different than most of the usual hidden object- adventure games of these days.
After Robinson Crusoe and Friday escape from an inhabited island they sail for Brazil where they encounter a voodoo curse on an uncharted island in the middle of the ocean. The dialogue is adequate whithout going over the top and the background music is quite catchy. The graphics are very well drawn and quite clear and colourful but there are a few dark patches in some scenes. The hidden objects come in two parts - firstly you have to assist each character by finding 10 or 12 or so items he requires then secondly a standard list of hidden objects, some of which are in blue. The 10 or so items and the standard hidden objects do not present a great deal of a problem but the items in blue require a bit more thinking and working out which make this part a little more challenging. Most of the puzzles are pretty simple but on the other hand some are quite complicated especially when the help key does not adequately provide enough information to give you an idea of what is required. It is because of this fact that I have only given this game 4 stars where 4 1/2 would have been more appropriate.
