Famous Five 1: Treasure Island Westka Interactive / Ravensburger 1999

Treasure Island is an interactive adventure inspired by the ever-popular Famous Five Books, and will bring the classic tales to a whole new generation. Brothers Julian and Dick and their sister Ann are staying with their cousin George (Georgina really) and her faithful dog Timmy, and George's parents, Uncle Quentin and Aunt Fanny, at Kirrin Cottage. However, they are not alone: a mysterious, scheming professor has rented one of the rooms in the cottage. The children soon become suspicious of the professor, when they discover that he is interested in an old shipwreck which had sunk off Kirrin Island many years before. The scene is set, the story unfolds, then players must find the clues, disentangle the secrets, solve the puzzles and lead the Famous Five into a thrilling adventure involving caves, secret hiding places, rowing boats, castle ruins, dungeons and hidden treasure. The manufacturer's recommended age is 8-12--which seems accurate--but younger players may need assistance. Persistence is necessary, as the game is not easy, and it must be remembered that only the tip of the cursor is used, when combing things together or using things. All in all, the game is intelligent, interactive and challenging, with superb graphics. The game really brings the characters of the Famous Five to life.
