This title offers you the chance to step into the pages of Daniel Defoe's classic novel and experience the same challenges faced by its hero. You will wander through richly rendered, 360-degree island scenes as you attempt to complete a number of tasks necessary for survival. You must salvage tools from the wreck and build a raft, find fresh water and grow food. This is both an engaging game and an introduction to the novel, complete with an interactive, read-along version of the text.
After a brutal storm wrecks his ship, a bedraggled Robinson Crusoe successfully manages to drag himself ashore-he's the sole survivor and it's your task to help him escape in this animated story CD-ROM.
From the start Robinson Crusoe is a gripping game, brilliantly narrated by Martin Jarvis. It opens with stirring dramatic music as Crusoe talks of his desire to travel the oceans of the world despite the strong opposition of his father. Unfortunately lightening strikes his ship and from the moment you see Crusoe arrive alone on the beach, you have to take on his role. Stranded alone on the Island of Despair, you have to keep your spirits up and carry out various tasks to prevent yourself from starving or becoming the victim of a savage wild animal.
Your first task is to get on board the shipwreck. Using your mouse button you have to collect all the pieces you need to build a raft that will then hopefully take you and the remaining food and water ashore. The scenes are very atmospheric and well illustrated and you even have to wait for a low tide before you head for the wreck.
This game comes with clear instructions on how to navigate your way through the adventure. By clicking on a book icon, you can find tools or objects to make life on the island easier. When you hold down the mouse button you can enjoy panoramic views of the island as if you were actually standing there. And like Crusoe, you have to constantly beware of the cannibals. --Justin HuntSee all Product Description
