Mystery Of Shark Island Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Macworld's Game Room 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. The Game Room gave Mystery of Shark Island a score of 4 out of 5 mice.

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.

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.
The full review is available at the link below.
