Packaged together are two successful adventure games that
are based on Jules Verne tales. In Journey to the Moon,
embark on an exotic voyage that will take you far beyond the
heavens. Discover an unusual world and a fascinating lunar
civilisation. In Return to Mysterious Island, take
on the role of the adventurous Mina and experience a quest
for survival on a wild and apparently uninhabited island...
Verne: Collector's Edition packages
together two point and click adventure games based on original
stories by Jules Verne.
to the Moon is loosely based on Verne's classic From
the Earth to the Moon. You play the part of Michel Ardan
who lands on the Moon to discover that his other two travelling
companions have vanished. In this point and click adventure
you must gather the various clues to work out what happened
to your shipmates. The only witness seems to be a talking
parrot (don't ask - just go with it).
puzzles in this game are varied enough to keep you playing
to see what will crop up next. There's
an interesting element here that sees you having to learn
an alien language in order to speak to an alien race - it's
simply a matter of finding the correct item with which to
communicate, but I found it an interesting touch.
graphics are pretty neat too. While they won't exactly set
your world alight, it's interesting to see that the game's
developers have tried to stay as faithful to Verne's romantic
Victorian view of the future.
to Mysterious Island is set after Verne's The Mysterious
Island. This is another point and click adventure that
sees you take on the role of Mina, who washes up on the beach
of Mysterious Island after a shipwreck.
on the island you must collect items and combine them in order
to power things like your mobile phone, or construct hunting
implements like arrows. What's great about this game is that
there is more than one way to skin a rabbit (if you'll excuse
the very bad pun). You won't have to search for hours for
the missing component before you can make certain items, as
there are several different ways to achieve the same results.
also get a monkey companion to chat with - which allows you
to explore areas that Mina can't get to.
graphics and sound are pretty impressive - the sounds are
especially atmospheric. And this is certainly a game you can
come back to and replay once you've completed it.
the end of the day the fact that you get two cracking adventure
games for under £20 should be all the excuse you need
to buy this great collection.
