That's a pretty entertaining oldschool point & click adventure with lots of puzzles, most of which however of the 'give scissors to the guy who asked for scissors' sort.
Not very challenging for someone familiar with the genre.
You might like the nicely animated graphics and, most of all, the well-made trashy c-movie plot settled in the 1950s, with tough-talking heroes andread more monster creating
evil geniuses on secret islands... and savable women of course.
3.5 stars rounded up to 4.

I was still desperately holding on to my Amiga when I first played this game. And even back then it made me nostalgic about the LucasArts adventure games on the Amiga. It's a very good game, despite not quite deserving a place at the top of the table. The music is great, the graphics are great, the puzzles are mostly good and the story is cheesy and wacky at the same time. Wellread more worth a play through, or several play throughs if you enjoy playing point'n'click adventure games more than once, like I do. This is a game I revisit regularly, and will probably continue to do so until my sun sets.

Pretty much your standard point-n-click adventure, with plenty of nods to the Indiana Jones/Monkey Island style of humor and gameplay. The game tries to be silly and mostly succeeds (the hero is Joe King, get it?), plus throws in nubile Amazon women to titillate you. You'll find many other cheesy adventure tropes in game to keep you amused, and there is lots to do and lots of puzzlesread more to solve, some pretty mind bending. The controls may be the worst thing about this game, since they are all icon based and thus require repeated clicking to get anything done. But if you want to try your hand at a LucasArts wannabe adventure, this would fit the bill.
