Treasure Island the Game

Treasure Island is a multi-screen adventure/puzzle game, 64 different screens which is a fair amount for an old C16 game.  A map of the Island was included with the game.  Using the map, you must help Jim Hawkins find the buried treasure.  There are various items to collect that you will need, like the spade and the key.  There are also many pirates in your way that you need to deal with or avoid by using the cut-glass swords.  Once you have the treasure you must win the race back to your ship before Long John Silver can stop you.

You have five lives at the start of the game and you lose a life if you are hit by a cut-glass sword, a pirate or if Long John Silver catches up to you.  The score of the game is a percentage, it is possible to complete the game without 100%.  If you have lower than 100% at the end of the game, it just means you haven’t collected all bonus items on the island, nothing to worry about unless you’re in a competition with your mates for the highest score.

Is Treasure Island C16 Naff

Treasure Island on the Commodore 16 is a great game, one of the best games to be released on this little system.  The graphics are excellent, everything is clear with hardly any glitching and the use of available colours on the C16 is fantastic.  The music is excellent, great little tunes and the sound fx work wonderfully.  The controls work and respond well.  The gameplay is super fun, it’s not too difficult and will definitely have you returning time after time with determination to finish it.
