    Journey through the lush yet perilous Adventure Island!

    A mysterious tropical paradise known as Adventure Island is the setting for this side-scrolling action game. The evil Witch Doctor has kidnapped Tina, the true love of Master Higgins. To save her, you must safely guide Master Higgins through eight perilous stages—including dense forests and creepy caves—while defeating all of the enemies in your path. Each area is made up of four rounds filled with enemies determined to stop you in your tracks. In addition, as time passes, Master Higgins’s vitality is automatically drained. To keep going, he must eat constantly by grabbing fruit, milk, and whatever other goodies he can as he races toward his goal. Sometimes eggs will appear that contain miraculous items, like axes to throw at enemies or honey that grants temporary invincibility. Use items skillfully to help you clear the areas. At the end of each area, you'll face the Witch Doctor, whom you must defeat to advance. Go, Master Higgins, go!

    Du hast gerade herausgefunden, daß Prinzessin Leilani von dem bösen Medizinmann entführt und zur Abenteuerinsel im Südpazifik gebracht worden ist.

    Du landest auf der Abenteuerinsel ohne Waffen oder Verpflegung. Die Insel ist mit dichtem Dschungel überwuchert und voller Berge und Höhlen. Irgendwo auf der Insel sind Dein Skateboard, eine Axt, Verpflegung und andere nützliche Sachen versteckt, die Du suchen und finden mußt.

    Aber beeile Dich lieber und finde schnell die Waffen und Verpflegung, denn Du brauchst sie, um es mit den Spinnen, Schlangen, Fledermäusen und Dämonen des Bösen Medizinmanns aufzunehmen. Der hat nämlich eine Menge Fallen für Dich gestellt, ehe Du ihm direkt gegenüber stehen kannst. Nimmst Du die Herausforderung an? Kannst Du die Abenteuerinsel überstehen und Prinzessin Leilani Retten?!
