    Tropical adventure of epic dimensions!

    A teenager’s dream vacation on a tranquil south sea island … A shooting star!? … It’s an omen of disaster! Mike’s archaeologist uncle has been kidnapped. Mike alone can rescue him. Thus begins the test of island courage.

    Happy villagers eagerly assist, but endless enemies threaten every step. Mike’s search leads him through the lush wilderness of the StarTropics. As he travels on foot, or by submarine through this sunny land of dark secrets and deadly peril, Mike is a tireless fighter.

    Using common sense, an island yo-yo, magic potions, and mysterious new weapons and skills, Mike must defend himself. Restore his strength with coconut milk. Help him defeat strange creatures, sea monsters and hidden attackers.
