I appreciate Anuman for a couple of reasons. The most prominent is they are publishing PC quality video games on the iPad and iPhone. Return to Mysterious Island 2 is another in a long line of games that show PC quality video games work on this hand held platform. For Family Friendly Gaming it means PC games are not as exclusive as they once were.
Return to Mysterious Island 2 picks up where the last game left off. We are in a helicopter trying to make our escape. Unfortunately one of Jule's Verne's robots shoots us down. We crash in the helicopter. The pilot is dead and we are underwater. The right series of actions need to be performed to safely make it to the shore.
Return to Mysterious Island 2 is an odd game for me as we start out playing as a monkey. He helps save Mina (a human character) from the various problems on this island. The first problem we run into in Return to Mysterious Island 2 is to find her a bandage. Her leg is bleeding and needs to be dressed before we can move her.
The game play in Return to Mysterious Island 2 is fantastic. I felt like I was playing Shadowgate, or Myst. There is a major puzzle element to Return to Mysterious Island 2. We have to find certain items from a variety of places. Touching and moving around the camera gives us a complete 360 degree view.
Return to Mysterious Island 2 can be difficult in some spots, especially if you find yourself stuck. Perseverance and exploration can assist in those situations. If you are really stuck, then look for a game walk through on the Internet. You may find yourself stuck in Return to Mysterious Island 2 on more than one occasion.
Return to Mysterious Island 2 can take some time to beat. Players will get their four dollars worth out of this hand held title. In case you are not sure, there is a lite version of Return to Mysterious Island 2 which will allow you to try it before putting money down. Anuman is very nice to players with options like that. Family Friendly Gaming was provided the universal version of Return to Mysterious Island 2 which plays on both the iPhone/iPod Touch and iPad.
