Adventure Island (English Text)

Adventure Island is a game developed by Hudson Soft Company in 1986.

In the South Pacific, Master Higgins lives peacefully wearing only a skirt made of grass and a cap. This until the evil wizard decides to capture Tina and hold her hostage.

It’s up to Master Higgins to collect throwing axes, fireballs and skateboards to help his noble quest.

The game is a side scroller, Master Higgins crosses the screen from left to right and collects power-ups using giant eggs.

A skateboard is included that guarantees a noticeable improvement in speed, at least until Master Higgins is hit and loses his power.

If it’s not on a skateboard, a shot means instant death.

Another important element of the game is the hunger that is displayed through an indicator that decreases constantly. If it reaches zero, the hero dies and the only way to fill that marker is to collect food along the way.

The bosses are present at the end of the levels, up to the same evil sorcerer.
