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."
