Adventure Island

Hall of Lame

Adventure Island is the kind of game that would have been good if not for a few miserable mistakes made by the developers. The game's control is lousy and the challenge is way too... well, challenging. I have a hard enough time advancing farther than the first few levels. Plus, Master Higgins is not your usual idea as a game hero. He looks like a baby in a diaper. Yes, a baby in a diaper. Not the kind of person I think of when I think "hero." Not exactly the person I'd want out saving my life.

Above Right: Please don't cry, Higgins. Remember it is, after all, just a game.
