Captain Morgane and the Golden Turtle
Review by Ron Davis
This is a game in the style of Monkey Island and others of this era, with cartoon like characters.
It is a third person perspective, point and click, which seems to have gone out of fashion – more's the pity!
There are very few of these game around now; I have found a few older games of this type but am unable to play them as they are not compatible with Windows 7, which is my operating system.
The 'modus operandi' is a little different, mouse driven, but is no problem once you get used to it.
If you are fed up with 'hidden object games', as I am, you will have no worries here. Of course you do have to find things, but only those things that are required to assist the game along, and is by no means the main aim.
The story is interesting and varied, with some occasional humorous dialogue.
If you have played 'So Blonde', you will have met the main character here, Morgane Castillo, but as a very different type of character.
The story starts earlier than this, when Morgane is a small child of 7 years. She has to carry out some household chores for her mother, then goes to play with her friends, Bobby and Nell. She also has to assist them by dealing with the local bully.
Her father is the captain of the Winsome Maid, which also figured in So Blonde.
Ten years pass and Morgane is now seventeen years old, and for her birthday her father gives her a new sword, and makes her the first mate of the ship – in fact he gives her the job of acting captain.
Her first job is to recruit some new crew members, and to find somebody who is willing to hire the ship. She finds somebody who has no cargo, but wants to go on an exploration to find the legendary Golden Turtle.
The display is very high resolution, with a choice of resolution and aspect ratio, but on modern monitors this can be displayed in wide screen.
The scenes are many and varied, with a map to help navigate back and forth quickly and effortlessly.
Saving is in one slot only, but it is possible to copy your save to one of two other slots should you wish to do so, but I never found it necessary.
The game is long and varied, and if you are a fan of adventure games, third person, point and click, no fighting or violence, as I am, then I can highly recommend this game.
The only thing I didn't like was the music, repetitious ditties, which I found annoying. However you can turn the music down to a very low level if you wish.
I would rate the game 9/10.
