|In this game, you are in control of a cute little pirate named Zack who's out to solve puzzles and discover the legendary treasure that was hidden away on Treasure Island by the great pirate Barbaros. Played with the Wii Remote like a classic adventure game, gamers point and click at objects they would like to use as they try to solve puzzles and get further into the game. Once you figure out what you need to use to solve a puzzle, you also need to discover how to use it, which is often by a series of natural motions and button presses with the controller. Puzzles start off simple but promise to get tougher as the game progresses. If you're having trouble, you can consult a friend for hints. The goal is to clear the stages without getting any hints. Prior to the start of a stage, the game shares with you the percentage of testers who were able to clear the stage on their own, so you can get a feel for the difficulty.|

The main reason i write the review for this game is to encourage more people to get this game. Why.? Because it's such a great game that most of people will not buy. There are just way too many 'crappy' games on Wii at the moment where developers just chipped in to make a quick cash.
Let me start by telling you the story of the game. It all begins with Zack (a pirate) and Wiki (a monkey who flies) who are searching for the treasures. In order to get to the treasure, you need to solve the puzzles. I find it that some of the puzzles are fun and challenging. Few are just super hard where I have to 'cheat' a bit by asking other fellow gamers to give me some hints.
Control is perfect; you don't exactly control the movement of Zack. You just need to use your wiimote to point to specific location and he will follow the pointer.
Graphics is very nice. It's like watching cartoon, very clear and crisp.
While it's not a perfect game, it's still a very nice game to add to your collection. It will give you a satisfaction feeling when you have solved a puzzle. Get it now!
I haven't finished the game, but I've finished at least 3 areas (15+ stages).
The game is a mixture of moving the pointer around the scenery, looking for objects to manipulate (usually noticed by a vibration and visual movement). Clicking on objects causes interactions. The interactions often involve moving the wiimote in a number of positions that seem more intuitive than WarioWare Smooth moves (although in one situation, I suffered for a good 5-10 minutes). The game does have a place to practice using items, but it just happens that the one I had difficulty was not listed (ice mirrors).
I've really enjoyed playing this game so far and find it challenging to think of what items I need, where to get them, and in what order to use them.
The only downfall I see is that there is not much replay value once it is finished. I've read that there is a multiplayer mode (more like cooperative with the first player controlling the action), but I'm bound to tell the first player what to do. However, the downfall is minimal based on the price I bought it at. I'm likely to hold onto this game even after I finish it, in hopes that I forget what to do after an extended length of non-play.
This game is fun for the whole family. It is really only a one player game, but since it is a puzzle everyone works together to figure out the correct way to get through each level. The second controller only draws on the screen to help show Zack where we think he should go and cannot control any moves or characters. Believe me some of these are really difficult and make you THINK!!
Do excuse the ponderously-long game title. This game is a puzzle game with a beautifully-drawn, fully-developed personality. As you collect treasure chests with the help of a sea-rabbit named Maddy, you'll get pieces of concept artwork, music and sound effect snippets, and video clips that are enjoyable to view and hear, and they also give insight into the massive effort that goes into creating a modern-day video game.
About the game itself: Truly a pleasure. When pieces of any given puzzle are solved, you receive HirameQ, the points by which your cunning and smarts are measured in the game. Many of the puzzles are quite challenging, but all are solveable. If you find you can't solve a puzzle, you may use an Oracle Doll to give you a hint, which are purchased from the Sea-rabbit pirate central, from a character named Granny. I used one, and I didn't need to, but it was late and I wasn't thinking real sharp. I would recommend never using them. I did use platinum tickets, however, and quite a few, simply in the interest of time. A platinum ticket lets you have a do-over, so you don't have to start the round from the beginning. These are also purchased from Granny.
You'll come to love the characters in what is a truly great and inventive game. Where a game like Super Mario Galaxy is merely gimmicky (ah, but what gimmicks!), this game is ingenious. Please buy it if only to support brilliant games.
This is another must have for any Wii owner out there. I have three reasons for this thinking.
1) This game is unlike any game you have ever played on any system. The story is old but the way you play is not..Which leads me to number
2) The remote game play for this game is simply great. It makes a point and click game very entertaining and enjoyable without making it repetitive as point and click games get.
3) You have to use your brain more in this game than in most if any game for the Wii. This game makes you think harder than some of my college exams did.
This game is good for both kids and adults although an adult can beat it in say 20 or so hours if they take their time to examine all aspects. Some of the boards can be beaten by more than 1 way so it's good to go back and replay.
BUY THIS GAME!!! Not enough can be played with just a rental and it has great re playability. This game is not for everyone though. If you are a button mashing fiend then avoid this game...If you just want to kill something avoid this game...If you don't like to think when playing a game avoid this game like the plague. But for those that are looking for a different type of experience on their Wii, this game delivers the best.
