Unfortunately I had to uninstall before playing. I can only play with my primary mouse buttons switched and this game won't let me do it. I have an arthritic condition in my hand that forces me to switch primary mouse buttons. Bummer that there are games here that won't take my mouse settings.

Everyone that can play, enjoy

I thought this looked familiar but since this is a new forum I thought I was wrong. Did they rename it perhaps???

I hit the buy button immediately! The first one is on my top ten ever!
I did the demo on the home site and it´s not as good as the first one but it grows as further you play.

This looks like a sequel to Treasures of Mystery Island, issued in 2008. Did you possibly beta test it, or it seems familiar because you recently played the first game?

This is new to me! The original is one of my all-time favorite games so I can't wait to play this one.

This is a new one, a sequel to the first. I bought it already from the dev site. it is a good one, similar to the first.

This is a NEW game and the sequel of part 1. This is a very, very good game also, so to read this comment as the first on the list was rather annoying.


Well put CasualGran.....I liked the first one, which was sort of weird since I don't like FROG's. Played the game on the developers site a few weeks ago and was waiting for BFG to get it so I could buy it.

Fragmented HOG. It's in pieces, and you have you have to find them.

i too like it
will use my credit for it
still on my demo
think i prefer the first one better
but we shall see
i love FROG games
they are my favs
for the newbie who asked the question what are FROGS
they are fragmented objects to find
ie you have to find 5 or 6 pieces of an item
ie an axe
hope this helps

Unfortunately for pinky559, that initial posting is wrong. This "Treasures..." is a brand new sequel to the first one, which was a gem. Then this game is two gems! I got it the day it was released at the developer's website. It'll probably play about twice as long as the first. Get it without delay!

P.S. Nice closing comment, CasualGran!

P.P.S. Rather large-file uncompressed download though--about 500 MB, so it takes some time to d/l and install, but WELL worth it!

I have been waiting for this sequel for a long time. I really liked the first one which is unusual for me because my favorites are dark and creepy games. I played this one for about 20 minutes and bought it. I't very similar to the first in the series.

Hi everyone!!

I have been waiting for this game to come!! I beta tested this. I liked the 1st one and this one is just as good. I had one punch card credit left from last month, so I used it on this game. The graphics are great, the music isn't too bad. It's fun to play. Some of the pieces are small and a little hard to find, but that is a part of the game. Make it a little challenging. I don't like objects that are shown so overtly placed that. you can't miss them. I like having to look for them.

The game took me right to where I left off. I think I'll start all over and play it more relaxed.

I hope all of you enjoy your day.

I beta-tested this one too, and back then I hadn't very good comments about it. I must have had an off-day, because I like it much more now. I'm glad the dev's worked on the grammar, because it was 'not so good' in the beta. I remember commenting 'the puzzles are too easy'. Some still are, but others either have been worked on or my smarts have left me . Still got about 15 minutes of demotime left, so I'm off to the island! This one might be worth a credit.
(Still waiting on the release of Guardian: The Ten. Betatested that one a few days after this one and liked it a lot).

I just can't see all the enthusiasm for this game. It was either pointing you which way to go, telling you what to do, etc, or it left you hanging! I also like games with FROG, and ones that you have to go from one point to another to get what you need, put it all together and find a clue -- that wasn't a problem this just felt disjointed to me. Won't be buying it.

The Treasures of Mystery Island was the first game. This is a sequel.

I sometimes read the strangest comments in here.

I somehow missed the first game entirely, so thanks to all of you that gave it such glowing praise, I'll check that out tonight after work. I was on a buying spree last month and have four credits that are burning a hole in my cyber-pocket.
