Well done story,

This review is from: The Treasures of Mystery Island: The Ghost Ship [Download] (Software Download)
This is a hidden object game with a difference. The objects that you must find in each of the the various scenes are only two or three in each scene but they are broken apart and the parts must be found in the scene for the object to have been found and then used either in that same scene or another. Imagine a hammer broken into six parts and having to find all of the parts to use the hammer. I, at first, didn't like it (preferring the typical HOG) but I got used to it and found that it wasn't so bad after all. I had to use the hint several times though throughout the game.
The mini-games were few and at grade-school level in difficulty. But they were interesting and served as an entertaining minor diversion from the game.
The story was fairly interesting and had a definite and dramatic conclusion.
In short - I found it worth the $$.
