Description [en]

Colonial England. Under a certain amount of… duress… Jack takes on a job which will not only cause him a great deal of trouble, but also bring to light the answer to a mystery out of his distant past. A lack of money leads Jack to accept a charter to take a British secret agent to mysterious “Tooth Island”. When Jack’s ship shatters on the mysterious island’s cliffs on arrival and the secret agent quickly becomes a meal for a monster in the jungle, Jack is soon left to cope with the situation on his own.

“ Tooth Island” is ruled by the strange Doctor T, who is cultivating man-eating plants and has his own dastardly plans for the British Empire. And why does he seem to know Jack, who can’t remember ever having been on Tooth Island? What are Doctor T's plans? And what does he know about Jack’s past?

And then there’s the young and naive Amanda, who is filled by an almost fanatical drive to prove her worth. In the beginning the young lady is employed by Doctor T, and part of her task is to track Jack down and take him prisoner. It doesn’t take long before she begins to wonder if she is really on the right side, or if she shouldn’t join her opponent, the charming Captain Jack, instead.

A hair-raising hunt across the length and breadth of the dangerous island finally airs the mystery surrounding Jack’s past and leads to a spectacular showdown with a dark and deadly enemy and his nefarious henchmen.

Test [fr]

Test (acheté) :
Nous avons acheté le jeu.
Les graphismes, le son et les animations sont d'excellente facture, le gameplay est très bon.
Néanmoins, contrairement à ce que nous avions entendu, le jeu n'est pas du tout adapté pour les enfants qui ne maîtrisent pas totalement la lecture : sans parler de certaines énigmes assez difficiles (on est bloqué dans un port à la recherche d'une bouteille de Whisky), les dialogues sont en ANGLAIS sous-titrés en Français.

Voir aussi les commentaires sur le site "JeuxVideo.fr [fr]" (lien ci-dessus) : un jeu dans l'esprit des Lucas Art, pour en venir à bout, il est nécessaire de bien s'imprégner de l'esprit du jeu et de l'humour décalé de ses auteurs ...
