Destination: Treasure Island
Adventure Classic Gaming
15 February 2010
Excerpt: Pirates (as in murderous seafarers) have long sparked the imagination of adventure game developers. Pirates conspire to capture Gwydion (Prince Alexander) in King's Quest III: To Heir is Human. They inspire the career of Guybrush Threepwood in The Secret of Monkey Island. They are lifelong foes of Peter Pan in Hook (an adventure game adapted from Steven Spielberg's movie of the same name). They come in their "black ships" to ravage the island worlds of Myst.
Excerpt: “Fifteen men on the dead man’s chest-- Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum! Drink and the devil had done for the rest-- Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum! (Sea shanty from Treasure Island by R.L. Stevenson) The mystique of swashbuckling pirates who sail to exotic locales and smoke-blackened treasure maps that promise untold riches captured the public imagination in an 1883 novel by Robert Louis Stevenson. That novel was Treasure Island.

Excerpt: Destination: Treasure Island is an adventure game inspired by the Robert Louis Stevenson classic novel Treasure Island (published in 1883). The game takes place after the events in the book. You play as Jim Hawkins, and, thanks to the treasure you found during the events in the book, you’re now the captain of your own merchant vessel.
Conclusion: For those interested in the game, then, you'll have to do some hunting to find it, but it's worth the effort, as Destination: Treasure Island is one of the more enjoyable games that I have had the pleasure of playing over the past few years. The game is certainly a little on the short side, which is really unfortunate as it's one of those games that makes you keep wanting just a little more -- the sort of game that knowing you're nearing the end of makes you a little sad...
Excerpt: Relativt enkelt och helt utan sidospår Destination: Treasure Island är ett äventyrsspel i peka och klicka-stil, och en uppföljare till Robert Stevensons klassiska bok Skattkammarön. Spelet tar vid några år efter bokens slut och här tar man sig an rollen som den unge sjöfararen Jim Hawkins. Historien inleds med att Jim får beskedet att den nu avlidne Long John Silver har lämnat en skatt åt honom.
