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.

Okay hidden object search game
Compared to the first Robinson Crusoe story this game sure is a great improvement - if you are wondering which one to buy I would recommend skipping the first part and taking only this one.
Here is why; graphics, map/gameplay area, puzzles and hidden object scenes are way better planned and executed in this new version. Story is minimal so most of the time is spent either in hidden object search or solving puzzles. There really is no adventure aspect in this game, and no inventory to be gathered but all items are immediately used in the same location. Puzzle complexity is challenging enough and instructions are not available (at least in expert mode) so be ready to figure out what to do with a group of symbols or buttons or colours or whatever the puzzle ahead happens to be about.. Hidden object scenes are a bit overcluttered to my liking but manageable in this game.
This game is quite easy going, very little scary parts (and them mostly random skulls or other skeleton parts) and most of the time the game tone is either neutral or positive making this a potential game for playing with children. For expert players this game is easy or very easy but can be tentatively recommended if you are only looking for spending some time with a relaxed style game.
