|Voodoo Island is a slight variation on the "Most Dangerous Game" story, set
on a remote island. Your task is to destroy the evil Dr. Beauvias is brewing, while
avoiding dangerous voodoo rituals and black magic practiced by the local population.
The parser is almost identical to the one used in Forbidden Castle, which is to say
it's quite adequate for the game's puzzles. And speaking of puzzles, these are not
your garden variety of find-key-X-to-unlock-door-Y type: as one might expect from a
game about exotic rituals, you'll find strange yet logical puzzles that involve many
elements of Voodoo rituals. The game is also a nice change from Angelsoft's usually
frenetic games (e.g. High Stakes) where actions must be done within a limited number
of turns. Here, you can explore the island at your leisure most of the time, taking
in nice descriptions of the scenery and people. In summary, Voodoo Island is a nice
piece of IF that doesn't introduce anything new, but is a well-written game that will
give you a few relaxing hours. The game might also interest fans of Sierra's Gabriel
Knight 1 due to a similar occult premise.
