Treasure Island is a match three game with a pirate theme (and a little comedy) to it (I'm sure we've all read Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson; or, at the very least seen an adaptation of it on TV).

The game starts in a window by default, but you can change it to full screen via the options menu. There's also a custom cursor available. From the main menu you can choose to play either in a relaxed mode or the classic timed mode. The timed mode includes a barrel of gun powder and a rope fuse, that burns down. If it reaches the barrel, you lose a life. You start with three lives. The fuse is fairly slow burning, so most levels are relatively easy to beat. It wasn't until level nine where the design of the table made it harder to complete matches in some area's of the board, that I took more than a few minutes to finish a level. There is a difference from the usual match three game in that you have a token attached to your mouse pointer and have to find a match using that token. The token you click on to create a match of three or more for the one you are creating a match of three or more, will then attach itself to the cursor. You can make horizontal, vertical and diagonal matches with this game, which makes it a little different in two ways to the usual fare we see. At the end of a level you get one or more dancing skeletons (the comedy aspect I indicated above) with various items of treasure raining down.

If the tile you pick up cannot be used to make a match in the next turn, it will immediately be exchanged for another token; ( I haven't figured out if there is a pattern to this exchange yet). If you take too long to make a match a red arrow will appear indicating where you can make a match.

At the end of each level, for both the relaxed an timed modes you get a level stat's board that includes the best time, the best score etc. You can create multiple profiles; making this an ideal family game. If you leave the game before completing a level, it does save your progress, so that when you next boot up the game it will open with a small window asking if you wish to continue where you left off or start the level again from the beginning.

Some of the best times recorded in the Best Time slot by Tester are impossible, for example the level nine result quotes a time of 3 seconds (see the last image below) to complete the level; (it took me 5 minutes and 37 seconds, despite working pretty fast to clear the crates). From level 10 some crates will require two matches to remove them.

To pause the game double click on the background or press the space bar. If you see a glowing effect on a token it will be one of a few different power up's. These include a bomb that destroys the surrounding tokens and ones that destroy horizontal and vertical tokens.

The latest game from Epic Games called Dandara: Trials of Fear Edition is now available free HERE. It's a a 2D metroidvania platformer full of mystical creatures and boundless exploration. Next Thursday's game (4th Feb) is called For The King, a challenging blend of strategy, turn-based combat, and roguelike elements. Each playthrough is unique with procedural maps, quests, and events. Explore Fahrul in either single player, local, or online co-op.

There's also a nice little walking simulator available over on Steam for free. It's very short, but worth taking a look (IMO); it's an ideal accompaniment with your drink of choice taken during a short break from other games. It received a 92% positive rating from the Steam community from 1499 reviews. You can find it HERE. I wrote a short review of it HERE

It took me a while but I finally caught on...the real gimmick of this game is that the last cell that you clicked on becomes the current cell that you must match. This forces you to carefully consider which of whatever options you have you SHOULD click on in order to set yourself up for those tricky corner cells. And yes, the dancing skeletons are nicely done and very entertaining.

I LOVE this game. I've had it for years and play it off and on. I love how it requires a different mindset from the usual match 3 games, and there are some levels that I LOVE because it takes me forever to get through them! So I mostly like playing the earlier levels because I know the frustrating ones are coming :-)

This is a really good game. It is different to other match three games in that you are given a token to match 3 or more together and you can match diagonally as well. I have played the first 12 levels and I am really enjoying it, I even like the animation. Thank you for offering this game today.

This game is confusing me. I'm on very early levels and will have a piece to place that has nowhere to go. I have to wait for the game to point to a spot that I can place it. Sometimes the piece that I have to place changes into a different piece but I don't know why. I feel like I'm missing some instructions.

Nancy, the trick to this game is that the piece that is replaced becomes the piece to be inserted on the next move, etc.; but if that piece has nowhere to go it will change to a randomly selected piece that can be placed somewhere. It is a bit different to the usual match 3 game and can take a bit of getting used to... But the part I love the most is finishing a level and watching the skeletons dance in celebration! (I'd suggest you make sure you can hear the music when they do)

I've downloaded and installed the game but cannot find it. The installer did not ask where to install the game or create a shortcut. I've done searches for Treasure, Toomky, Softdeluxe with no results. Any directions? I've downloaded games from here before but never been unable to find the game once installed. Thanks for any help.

Tricia, Sounds like it did not install which can happen if you leave your antivirus running, it will look like it installed but did not. Disable your antivirus temporarily until you install again. It does ask the install location.

Tricia,
Look in C:\Program Files (x86)\ToomkyGames.com\Treasure Island
That is the default install location.

Never mind. It downloads fine now. Just a hiccup on the server? It's been fixed since? (I had tried two different computers on two different Internet connections and had the same result).

Thanks a lot for the game.

It's quite a nice game play, nice bright colours. The disadvantage for me is that it gets a bit boring in the end, there is not a lot of strategy involved, the power up's appear randomly on the field.

White Rabbit, I always delete the user(s) that are present when I install a game. That way you won't have to compete with user 'Tester' ;-)

All in all a nice in between game.

Irene,

I never thought to delete Tester. Thanks for the suggestion Irene. :) What I like about the game is that it's got two things different to the usual match three's. so for me, despite having got a little jaded with the genre, will be keeping a copy of this one.
