Zack and Wiki (Wii): COMPLETED!

It took over an hour to finish off the boss, as I had several failures, but eventually he was defeated. There were then four (or five?) “Game Over” sequences, including two more after it declared “Fin”, and then it was finally over. Now there are some extra challenges to complete, but I haven’t a clue how to go about accessing them. The books on the bookshelf are mostly empty still too.

Total play time: 12 hours 27 minutes.

That’s how long it took me to complete Barbaros’ Land. In fact, aside from a quick fail of the final “boss”, that’s all I did on the game today. I’m up to around 11-12 hours in total, but it doesn’t feel that long. The time just vanishes while I play.

Anyway, since I’m on the last bit of the game (I think), I’d best start asking for a sequel. Mind you, only seven people bought the original so that probably isn’t going to happen, sadly.

Getting close the end now, I’m sure of it. I’ve completed all the open levels, rebuilt Barbaros, and killed a giant squid. Now it’s off to Treasure Island itself! Woo!

Just one level today – the Airship one (called “Operation Takeback”, or something). It wasn’t especially hard, but I had to restart several times, meaning it took ages. I kept missing things, making later bits of the solution impossible.

But MAP GET! Aces.

Worked my way through all (well, all bar one) of the Fire World levels today. I don’t know if they’re actually getting easier, or that my brain is now becoming tuned to the way the game expects you to think, but I certainly found them easier.

Even the boss (although good, and clever) was much easier than the previous two.

Completed all the remaining Ice World levels today, including the fiddly IMMA CHARGIN MAH LAZERS one. Then I opened up the Lava World levels (so… grass, ice, fire… desert next? Cave? Space? Thems the rules!).

Completed the first one there too.

Ah… for some reason the things I tried on the monkey-boss level last time I played didn’t work, but this time, they worked fine. Very odd. But with that done, and the other “first world” level complete, it was onto the second world – the ice one.

Only done two levels here so far though.

And today I played this. It too is very good!

It’s a point and click adventure game (which are generally ace), but with Wii-specific controls for certain actions. For example, you turn a key in a lock by twisting the remote. You saw down a tree by thrusting the remote forwards and backwards like a saw, and so on. It’s intuitive and doesn’t feel tacked on in the slightest, unlike some other Wii games.

So far I’ve completed 5 “levels”, and have attempted the “boss” once. But I got stuck.
