About The Game

Master Higgins is back in the second instalment of the classic Adventure Island series.

This time, the Evil Witch Doctor and his monsters have taken over the island and captured Higgins's sweetheart too.

In addition to his trusty axe, Higgins can enlist the help of four dinosaurs with different abilities that come in handy on land, sea and even in the air. With the help of his companions, only Master Higgins can restore peace to the island and save the lovely Tina!
