No Fantasy Island
You are cast as Master Higgins, a bouncy and nimblefooted hero who ventures out to the balmy South Pacific to save the beautiful Princess Leilani from the clutches of the evil Witch Doctor. While hopping from island to island and cloud to cloud, you must survive against a barrage of attacks from giant snails, leaping octopuses and swordfish. As you hurl axes at the advancing sea creatures, you can boost your energy by plucking tropical fruits, like bananas and pineapples, from the air. As you reach the caverns, you are greeted by pesky bats, cobras, skullheads, and falling icicles. Once you get to the forest, beware the spiders, sly foxes, and frogs.
Adventure Island consists of eight grueling areas with four action-packed rounds in each area. At the end of each area is a boss whom you must defeat to proceed on your quest. But Higgins is continually losing energy as the game progresses and you must pick up fruit or milk to regain stamina.
At the end of each round, grabbing the bonus pot doubles your points. Cracking hidden eggs along your path could reveal more power-ups like a milk bottle (full energy) or even a skateboard to speed you around the island. Occasionally, the right egg rewards you with a miniature fairylike creature named Honey Girl who hovers behind you and renders you invincible for several seconds.
- Fight off sea creatures as you hop from cloud to cloud.
- Watch out for dangerous creatures -- eliminate them before they get too close.
But picking the wrong egg could reveal the dreaded egg-plant which drains your energy supply!
Your journey also reveals several bonus rounds. If Higgins is standing in the right place at the right time, a platform magically appears and elevates him to the bonus round.
Beware the seventh area, where hopping precariously along shifting ledges becomes very difficult. More unexpected hazards hinder your progress... be careful not to plunge into the dark abyss or crack the wrong egg! If you get past this area, you have the makings of a real hero.
Will you be able to save the Princess from a tragic fate?
- To help defeat the evil bosses, stay very close and let him throw fireballs past you...after he throws, jump up and throw your axe at his head.
- To find the first bonus round, go to area 1, round 1, section 3...stand in front of the fifth totem pole, and away you go to the bonus round!
- Throughout the game there are magic areas, where either a bonus round or egg will appear. An easy way to find these: throw your axe...if it disappears, you're in a magic area!
