Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros’ Treasure for Wii
This is a new game that I’m trying out and I’m currently getting addicted to.
You are a young pirate who is in love with treasure and you want to go on an adventure to find as many as you can. You suddenly stumble upon a mysterious golden head called Barbados (a legendary pirate) and he makes a deal with you. You collect all his body parts to put him back together and he will give you his legendary ship. You agree and your adventure starts!
How do you play this?
It is basically a point and click game where your only goal is to get that treasure chest and open it. Think of it as a big puzzle and there are many ways to solve it depending on your strategy. The first few levels are pretty straight forward but as you go further, the levels get more challenging that it is normal to die a few times (you only get one life).
Don’t worry because when you die, you can either revive yourself or start from the beginning. I usually choose to start from the beginning because I don’t want to lose points (HQ). You gain points every time you solve a puzzle piece. You get perfect points if you solve it on the first try (eg. put back all the pieces together without making a mistake, pass through a walkway without repeating). You get less if you make mistakes.
Going with you on your adventure is a flying monkey called Wiki. He’s a very useful companion. You can shake you wiimote to turn him into a bell. As a bell, he can magnetize coins (game currency) to come to you, turn animals into useful objects and vice versa (don’t do it to angry animals or you will just die), and remove ghosts from treasure chests.
So all you have to do in the game for each level is to scan through it and think of a way to get to the treasure. You will need to use several items and change the scenario in order to achieve your goal.
I like this game because it makes you think hard on how you can get to that treasure. It also makes use of the wiimote’s features because depending on the object you are holding, you can change the way you hold the wiimote to mimic it (eg. holding an umbrella, carrying a basket). Mix it with some comic actions and suggestions by wiki and you will get something for you to spend hours on.
