The Lost Island of Alanna is glorious adventure in the land of the lost civilization of Alanna. You wander in a maze of paths in the Mediterranean nature. Your quest is it's not a walk in the park, because in order to advance on your path, you need to solve various puzzles which requires both wisdom and patient. Without cheat codes (yes, there are cheats) it will probably take hours and hours to solve the whole map of the game. You can save the game if you get tired and resume the game later where you left off. There are objects to pick up which you will need down the road. To view the help menu you click on the light colored rock in the boulder arch. The realistic graphics in The Lost Island of Alanna enhances the gameplay. Although this game is a promotion for Cherry Coke, it's not overly annoying because it doesn't interfer with the gameplay itself.

Reklamní hra od Cherry Coke, The lost island of Alanna je pravou perlou freewarových adventur. Její skvělézpracování, náderná grafika a skvělý příběh z ní činí jednu z nejlepších her, co na freewarovém poli můžeme spatřit.

But in the end, I felt like Ralphie from A Christmas Story when he gets the Little Orphan Annie decoder ring, and all he gets for his trouble is an advertisement for Ovaltine. The game is extremely short and not really satisfying. In the end, we are enlightened with how to read fortunes found on the Cherry Coke labels. Stop the presses!

What makes The Lost Island of Alanna really important though is that at one point in popular culture, large companies felt that Adventure games were the ticket to advertising their product. They had faith in the size of the audience to get their message across. Nowadays, this game stands as a piece of nostalgia, kitschy amongst its older brothers like Amber and Riven. Kitschy like a slap bracelet and jelly shoes.
