Find out just how resourceful you can be in this classic game, with its mixture of adventure and RPG elements. Step into the shoes of Mike Jones, a teenage star pitcher from Seattle, who has come to the tropics to visit his famous archeologist uncle, Dr. Jones. After being told that his uncle has been abducted, Mike begins a perilous quest in order to rescue him and figure out the mysterious plot behind his disappearance. Luckily for Mike, he meets helpful villagers and finds more powerful weapons as he explores numerous locations and island hops using his uncle’s submarine. You’ll never know what to expect next as the cosmic story unfolds over the course of eight action-packed chapters, ranging from Dr. Jones’s lab on C-Island to an alien spacecraft. Who knew a tropical vacation could turn into a mission to save the world?
