The AGS Panel is a team of AGS forum veterans who play all of the games here, and give them ratings from one to five cups. The rating system is as follows:
1 CupNot serious entertainment
2 CupsA reasonable game, worth a try
3 CupsA good game, worth playing
4 CupsA great game, well worth your time
5 CupsAn outstanding, must-play game!
Feel free to disagree with the panel's rating, and please don't be offended if you think your game has been under-rated!

(Why has my game been rated 1 cup?)

Close window
If your game has been rated 1 cup, please don't be offended! It's common for your first game release to get a 1-cup rating, due to the game having a lack of polish and flair -- which is understandable, because you're just getting started!

Please understand that the main purpose of the ratings is to help potential game players find high quality, bug-free games to play. You've probably learnt a lot about AGS as a result of making your first game -- so why not use that knowledge to start afresh, and do even better with your next game!

About this game

Adventure Island is a light hearted homage to 'point-and-click' adventure games. In the sand of Adventure Island you will find the footprints of games such as Myst, Atlantis, Black Mirror, Syberia, Broken Sword, Monkey Island, The Dig, The Journeyman Project, and many more.

You assist seasoned adventurer, Annie Player, who is called upon to find a team of missing scientists sent to survey a newly discovered island. It quickly becomes apparent to Annie that this is no normal island, but one offering her many challenges. With your help she will navigate the convoluted path to the central mystery of this strange island, and uncover a sinister plot that threatens human existence as we know it!

The game offers a spectrum of puzzles of varying difficulty, set in a variety of exotic locations, and a number of odd characters to interact with. It is largely a third person point-and-click game, with a Dynamic Cursor and active hot spots. There are two sections where you also play in first person mode. The different cursors follow gaming convention, but a full description of each is in the manual included with the game download.

VERSION 3 is now available, with extra save slots.

I have also created a Player Guide to provide help for players struggling with the puzzles in Adventure Island. This can be downloaded from the Adventure Island website.

Really amazing game, good graphics, a great variety of always logical puzzles, sooo many places to explore,... Definitely one of the best and longest adventure games I've ever played!

Wow...thanks haroldw for a single comment in a very long time on one of the greatest AGS games of all time...

I still have no idea why this game is so underrated...It has everything that any adventure game fan would ever need from a game...

The scene with the classroom is breath-taking. The walk cycles in-between the maze of desks took extreme programming - bravo.
It's probably the 1st time I actually enjoyed mini games in an adventure game.This game has puzzles galore. An amazing amount of hardcore programming went into this one. Thanks for making a great game.

This would have to be the ULTIMATE AGS GAME for hardcore adventure game fans!!! I cannot even begin to express how well-made this game is...It has everything:

* An exciting environment to explore where you feel that tingling of anticipation on unlocking a new area, wondering what new treats await beyond

* A gutsy and likable player character with lovely voice acting to back up her charm, and whose humour is spot-on, never crossing that fine line into annoying

* PUZZLES PUZZLES PUZZLES!!! I haven't counted but I would guess there are at least 50 wonderful puzzles in this game, or more! AND they all follow a logical structure that is solvable given enough thought

* A very nice homage to dozens if not more adventure games done in a fashion where you can tell the creator of this game really poured a lot of love and effort into making sure each game was represented fully with the mood of the original

* Despite the homage collage (sunglasses) the game also has its own unique story so even those who have never played the other games can fully enjoy this game as an experience complete and unto itsel

Does anyone know if version 1.5 is the final version?
Thanks.

I've been playing adventure games since the early text adventures in the 1980's on the Amstrad CPC 464. I really enjoyed Adventure Island. It has multiple self-contained worlds in which to play. Each one gives a nod to adventures of the past and each one has it's own tone and tempo. The puzzles range from the obvious to the tricky, but all are logical and generally supported by hints at appropriate places. For a free game, it's outstanding!

This was a delightful game. Any fan of the classic adventure genre should give this a try. So many nods to so many classics. I will go back through just to catch them all.

At times frustrating but only because hotspots did not seem to show up where/when they should have all the time.

Puzzles were not too easy, not too hard. Tried to have something for everyone and did a pretty good job. The ending was a bit abrupt - would like to see a bit more reward for all the trouble.

Obviously a lot of work was put into this and is a lot of game for a freebie. Well done. Hope to see more like this!

Congratulations for creating such a complex game in a quite perfect form. It contains everything a nice adventure game should have. Overall great story, providing a real adventure atmospehere with lots of different and some really challenging puzzles.

A must play game - You wont regret the download!

Adventure Island is a full length game of exceptional quality that only emerges on the AGS scene every few years. Graphically excellent with professional quality voice acting creates a perfect environment, covering a vast range of contexts, all rendered expertly.

The puzzles are brilliant, compelling and enjoyable but most players will find them challenging and some unsolvable without assistance. Many require a lot of patience.

Overall, the creativity stands out to make this game a highly enjoyable experience and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to play a game that will take weeks to complete.

Well done and my strong compliments to the author.

One of the biggest games I have ever played in the AGS world.

I thought this would be a nice half-hour game when I first downloaded it. Half hour turned into 2 weeks!

Like Uziel wrote below me, there are some real tricky puzzles in this game. There are so many puzzles actually, I had to get pen and paper for some.

All good adventurers should try this game :)

This is a spectacular game. A massive amount of effort has gone into making one of the most detailed, and in my opinion, most thought provoking AGS game I've ever played. Expect to be stumped on some of those puzzles. There are a few doozies in there!

This is a 10/10 folks. Do yourself a favour and download it.
