You are a writer sent by your boss to explore ghostly goings-on on a Pacific island. Rumor has it a family's house was even destroyed by these ghosts.
The Treasures of Mystery Island: The Ghost Ship is an adventure game with several hidden object puzzles. Unlike most hidden object puzzle-based games, here you do not search for the object itself but for pieces to that object. Once you piece together an object, it is moved to your inventory where you will use it to solve a puzzle. Sometimes there will also be mini-game puzzles. Some object's parts cannot always be found until other puzzles are completed.
