Yeah! A game I like. I can't wait for my free game credit to continue this one. It's quirky, whimsical, interesting and fun. One of the quests is to collect black spots to create a potion. You mix the black spots with a barrel of liquid (my guess is rum) and then feed it to the monkey. The monkey turns into a variety of interesting things like a watermelon or a coconut AND usually has something to say about it. It's pretty danged funny. I found myself looking forward to testing the next potion. I also had a good laugh matching up the animals with their sounds. The animal's songs are unexpected and very silly. Even the music is comical. The graphics are eye catching, the puzzles are funny and the quest is interesting. I'm sold!

Continued to surprise me with the number of challenges. Never seemed to end with NEW games not a replaying the same scene over and over. Fun until the end.

Most levels have 2 stages to get through. First being the specific find or puzzle and only then the main hidden object. Very good flow to game and the replay is not boring. Definitely good value for money

Storyline is great - a little too easy for me but none the less I had a great time playing it. Looking forward to another sequel

but at least there is a "skip" button. I had no problem finding objects and accomplishing most adventure goals, but the mini games were not enjoyable at all. I "skipped" most of them because I found them tedious at best. Many of mini games were more like taking an IQ test. There were many progressions, one stupid analogy, and various other trials that did not do anything to advance the story line that was a blatant rip-off of a certain pirate flick. Black spots? Cursed pirates? The adventure aspects of the game were pretty enjoyable but had a couple of difficult to accomplish tasks (at least on a laptop) like trying to put bones under a rock door before it closed or racing a turtle toward a shell. That said, the game does have a reasonably long play time and is therefore worth the price. I don't think I'll be playing it again if only because of the mini games. I play games to have fun and I do not find any fun in frustrating mini games with no explanations. But like I said before, at least there is a "skip" button.

Graphis fantastic, story great, I did advanced and it was pretty self explanatory. Creative mini games, thought provoking areas. I had issues with function but as the directions for reviews that's not for this forum. So since the function issues may in deed be my computer It's darn near a 5 star HOG.

It's cute but got very repetitive after awhile... Kids might like it.

This is one of the best HOGs of the year! Super graphics; catchy melodies, excellent tutorial; good plot(hint: you don't have to try the potion on the the monkey one by one; you can gather them and then try them all); cleverly hidden objects and challenging puzzles (the audio bird sound match is an excellent varitaion on usual chimes). The relaxed mode makes it easier to skip puzzles - just sell your soul! All in all, I'm sold on this super game!

This is a brilliant game. Tricky puzzles, crafty hidden objects, variety, humour, jaunty music, lovely graphics. I can't recall the last time I laughed so much in a game.

This game was so much fun to play - from giving a monkey a haircut to picking up bird dung...there were a lot of great, unique puzzles to solve in this game. I loved it. AMAZING graphics! Great HO scenes. You'll love this game.

I think the game was great. sometimes I didn't know what to do on some do the puzzles because it didn't say. But other than that it was very addicting and the games were awesome.

Excellent value for the money. Just when you think the game is over, there's more! This one might not be so good for the younger kids. You do revisit many of the scenes, but you are usually performing different actions each time, or searching for different things. Some objects are difficult to find, but the hints recharge quickly enough that it's not that bad.

I love this game but I can't catch the crown in the cemetary. I just can't. Don't know if this is a glitch or what. I would like to finish the game, but I don't know what to do anymore.

This is fun and has good graphics and all that -- but I have played it twice right up to the "find the 5 black cats" part and cannot get past it........am seriously thinking there is a problem as I sat for long seconds trying to sneak up on one of them and it never showed again.......frustrating to not be able to finish an otherwize fun game.

I truly enjoyed this game even though it was difficult in some areas and some of the items were really tiny/well hidden. The graphics were fantastic something always moving and going on and the mini games were fresh and challenging...I look forward to seeing more like this one.

I liked this HOG but found the mini games really frustrating at times. I like the graphics and storyline.

I just barely got done playing the demo for this, and I bought it. The major thing I love about this game is it really isn't kid friendly. It is one of the few games I have played that is more for adults than children, and I love that fact. Since not all of us have children, not every game should be revolved around them. First off, I read the 2 reviews that are on this game and I was still skeptical even though they were both raving about the game. I have never really liked the whole 'Pirate' thing. But, about 5 minutes after I started playing it, I fell in love. The graphics are AMAZING, and you can choose whether you want relaxed or timed mode (relaxed with alot of hints and timed with barely any), which I love. I am a 'timed mode' person myself. Secondly, the story line and the music are both really cute and fun. The music comes in and out, it isn't constant, so it doesn't get annoying, and that's nice. And there is quite a few different mini-games and a bunch of other stuff to do. I am really picky about the games I actually purchase, I have played hundreds and only have about 40 or so. So, if you're picky like me and you like something that is both challenging and easy, and also original and fun, I recommend this game!
