From the review:
The game features a story line where you’re an island castaway. You’ve awakened on the beach with a broken arm, next to a stone box engraved with an set of odd carvings. As the ocean waves lap at the beach they bring all sorts of material from water—fragments of shells, stones, driftwood, seahorses, sea urchins, and more.The full review is available at the link below.
Macworld Game Room: Mystery of Shark Island Review
With each wave, the box opens and reveals the items it wants you to find. It’s up to you to find them in time—as soon as the door opens, a timer begins to count down. You simply need to click on the right object. You can dust the sand away by moving your cursor over obscured objects, and occasionally large objects such as rocks will obscure items, as well. You can move them aside and look closely for the items on your list—everything from sea horses to sand dollars, along with fragments of statues that you slowly piece together.
