Quandary Reviews by Gordon Aplin

"All aboard, me old ship mates, for mirth, mayhem and madness with the Muppet crew as Robert Louis Stevenson's classic Treasure Island is given the irrepressible and irreverent Muppet treatment. In this quest for treasure there's never a dull moment. If you're not trying to improve your dress sense you might be shooting pies at ratbag pirates, or weighing anchor (it's very heavy), or even taking the helm of the good ship 'The Hispaniola' -- providing you know your port from your starboard."

"Aimed at children aged five and upwards this is a delightful point and click adventure that is guaranteed to 'hook' the odd parent or two and maybe even take the whole family along for a cruise. It features many detailed, colourful screens with lots of fun animations, jaunty sea-faring music and great sound effects..."

"There are many entertaining tasks to carry out as you progress through the story and most of them are in keeping with the game scenario. For example, once you have the map you must try to see Squire Trelawny, but you won't succeed until you are properly dressed and you don't have the money to buy new clothes. Never fear, a fun way to earn money is at hand, but you can also lose it if you are not careful. In this simplified form these sort of obstacles are the staple ingredient of many 'traditional' adventure games.

"This illustrates that this is not merely another 'activity-based' film tie-in -- although it has elements of these -- but is primarily a fun-filled game, an ideal training ground for budding adventure game players. Parents be warned, after this your children may demand more 'hard core' adventures such as Monkey Island and you may lose control of your computer forever."
