Gamers Info has posted a new review of Mystery of Shark Island, a casual scavenger hunt title from PlayFirst. To uncover the mystery, players must find items hidden in the sand before the timer runs out. GI recommends the game to fans of colorful puzzle titles.

From the review:

Mystery of Shark Island is a game in which the objective is to find clues and valuable objects off various beaches as you traverse through the Shark Islands. Each island has multiple beaches you must advance through, and each beach will have a different challenge, while containing a clue you need to uncover. Once you uncover all the clues, you'll be able to assemble a statue and hop over to the next island through an old portal system.

Finding statue pieces and assembling them isn't enough though; you must reach the number of points designated as a goal. If you are skilled, you can attempt to reach a higher point total for expert status. The earliest beaches are, of course, the easiest; they are often littered with the largest shells, and your goals are clearly displayed for you. As you progress, the goals will often become more difficult to recognize, and at some points, no visual clues at all are given.

Some beaches will have different types of shells; some may have a lot of clutter, a lot of sand or big rocks covering what you're looking for. At times, waves will crash quickly upon your area;at other times, you'll be required to reach a challenging high-point total. Surprisingly, for a single game type, an excellent job has been done providing diversity to the task, and never did I feel it overly repetitive or boring.
