Adventure Island – Mesmerising video games

I was surfing around the internet and I caught a glimpse of an awesome childhood memory, Adventure Island. Adventure Island was one of the beloved games. One of the favorite’s of the 90’s kids. The video games of that generation were different, they were simple with poor graphics and always a weird music in background. WHich to be truthful i loved!


In this game, we the player get to control Master Higgins, a young man who ventured to Adventure Island in the South Pacific after hearing that the Evil Witch Doctor kidnapped Princess Tina. Although she is referred as Princess Leilani in the English version. The Evil Witch Doctor may also be alternatively known as King Quiller, although this is not made clear in the game manual which lists it as a separate mystery enemy. Their names would be largely standardized in later localizations.

To rescue her, Higgins must survive a series of 32 stages. There are eight worlds called “areas”, which are divided four stages or “rounds” each, which are further divided into four checkpoints. When the player reaches the fourth round of each area, he must confront a boss at the end to continue to the next area. The game is completed when the player saves the girl after defeating the eighth and final form of the evil lord.


Games plus point was its electronic musicals. Weird but well enough to mesmerize you in the awesome childhood you had!
