There is nothing worse than realising that you forgot something. When my eyes started to go bad around age 12, I often forgot my glasses which I hadn’t yet registered as a need. It wasn’t long till I felt naked without them. I have felt the same about my Casio Calculator watches and later, even about my mobile phone. But Mina, Return to Mysterious Island‘s stalwart heroine faces much bigger challenges as she is shipwrecked with barely her skin on a less than friendly island in the Pacific Ocean.
Starving, alone and about to face many, many challenges, Mina is in a precarious state that balances on the edge of survival and a creeping sense of horror as she discovers more about the island made famous by Jules Verne.
If you are stuck, check out Tetraedge’s excellent walkthrough.
“The desire to perform a work which will endure, which will survive him, is the origin of his [man's] superiority over all other living creatures here below. It is this which has established his dominion, and this it is which justifies it, over all the world” (Jules Verne, Mysterious Island, Part III, Chapter 15).
Modern historians, digital powerhouse and champions of English Literature, Chillingo have added further clarity to Verne’s prophecy as their next epic release, Return to Mysterious Island, based on Verne’s immortal Mysterious Island debuts on our platform of choice. Verne’s works, now digital games, books, movies and a host of other media are the author’s new face for a new generation.
