    Werfen Sie sich voll ins Zeug mit ADVENTURE ISLAND II.

    Der übelgesinnte Hexenmeister hat soeben Ihre Liebste entführt. Um sie zu retten, müssen Sie sich Ihren Weg über acht gefahrvolle Inseln freikämpfen!

    Kämpfen Sie gegen Steinzeit-Monster - die abscheulichsten Viecher, die je über einen Videobildschirm gekrochen sind! Entrinnen Sie der glühenden Lava umliegender Vulkane, und weichen Sie Skorpionen und Königskobras aus.
