Description

Jules Verne's Secrets Of The Mysterious Island is the sequel to the popular iPhone game Jules Verne's Return To Mysterious Island. "The Mysterious Island" is one of Jules Verne's most famous novels, one of his most enjoyed in North America, and one of the most often adapted to the big screen.

In this second installment, Jep becomes a character in his own right. He saves Mina at the beginning of the game. Afterwards, the player switches from one character to another by maximizing the use of each other’s talents. Jep can climb places inaccessible to Mina, communicate with other monkeys, and find numerous objects thanks to his sense of smell. He communicates with his fellow monkeys: it's an opportunity to present the practical and social intelligence of monkeys and thus render man's place in nature

relative. Mina can dive in the lake whereas Jep, like many monkeys, does not know how to swim. Only Mina can use complex tools, combine objects and, of course, read the documents found in the course of the game! Game time will be balanced between Mina and Jep. The two characters are very positive, in particular Mina, who hates resorting to violence.

Highlights of game:

=> Highly popular themes: survival, exploration, discovery, science and mystery in a fabulous tropical setting.

=> An interactive inventory system lets one combine various collected items in order to create new objects and tools...

=> The same design and development team as for the first game keeps the same know-how and an identical proprietary engine for a fluid and excellent point and click navigation.

=> Two-character play: Secrets of The Mysterious Island is a story of friendship because Mina adopts a cute, little monkey. This is especially true because he is no longer just a simple partner in the island’s misfortune. He is able, due to his dexterity, to reach places inaccessible to our main character. The player will thus be able to slip into Jep's skin when the story will force him to: his point of view and his skills will be completely changed as a result...

=> Intuitive matching inventory: Secrets of The Mysterious Island is mainly based on combinations of objects: two, three, four and even five elements are sometimes indispensable to obtain and make what one seeks or needs. Some elements are fungible, others can be used again.

=> Available 5 different languages (Voice and Text) including English, French, German, Spanish and Italian.

=> Different puzzles :

- "Pre-technical": primitive but ingenuous use of tools by the monkey.

- "Technical": use of the installations built by the castaways in the novel (mill, oven...) to start up ambitious projects: enameled pottery, glass blowing, forging...

- "High technology": turning back on the volcanic engine of the unknown civilization, repairing Nemo's sophisticated machines, testing the sick plants...

- "Social": interacting with the monkeys of the island with the help of an interface based on In RTMI 1 the player embodied Mina and used Jep as a simple tool.

NOTE: This is not a port or an emulation of the PC version. It is a complete redesign of the game exclusive for the iPhone!The gameplay and content of the game is different from its PC predecessor.

Missing 50% of Gameplay - Please Read Before Buying

:
Here's the problem - by my estimation, at least 50% of the gameplay (most of the minigames, for example) HAVE BEEN REMOVED in this version. How do I know this? It's kind of funny, actually. This game is the type where you need a walkthru. Well, the developers provide one in the app, but it's not ready yet, so I had to find one online. Since this is an old pc game, I just found an old online walkthru. I was, quite frankly, super disappointed to see that half of the game which is in the walkthru has been snipped. It also seems like they snipped the coolest parts, which were probably the hardest to port over. Now, obviously, if you haven't played the pc version, you won't know any better. But, you'll figure out, just by playing it, that something's way off... The game just doesn't play right, like it's only 50% completed. Nothing really ties together that well, you feel like you're missing most of the story. Now, if Chillingo plans to add more to the game, then I'll change my review, of course. But, do I really want to go back and re-play from the start? I have never posted a bad app review ever, and I'm sure the devs worked hard on this port - but... this one just doesn't cut it. It's a beta app, and I'm sure everyone over there knows it. Oh well...

0/5 stars

ZERO stars!!

:
If it was possible to select ZERO stars for this app, I would do so. The initial part of the game is challenging and fun, as expected, but buyer beware!!! The inventory has SO many bugs that I was only able to play less than 25% of the game! I am now stuck because necessary items cannot be combined, and attempting a combination causes the game to crash.

No fix available. Even worse, when I reported a problem, the company acknowledged that it was an issue - their fix was, "sorry, but there's nothing we can do."

Huh? How about an update, or at least a refund?

My advice: do NOT waste your money until they fix this app.

2/5 stars

Bugs!

:
I bought this game despite poor reviews, hoping that some of the reported bugs were fixed. I loved the first installment, so I bought this one anyway. Well, apparently I jumped the gun. This game has many small bugs that I overlooked because it didn't really interfere with the overall game play. But as I was nearing the end, (but definitely still very much riddling out the game, and not at all in a place that seemed like the FINAL mystery!) the whole game basically wrapped up. An animation sequence of the end played and it jumped me back to the main menu. Game over. So disappointing! Really, really a bummer. I hope that they release upgrades asap. This visually beautiful and interesting game deserves to be enjoyed without the bugs.
