Repairing Turtle Bay 

Image of author
When the land erupts, you need to come to the rescue of an island's animals and human residents.

Like the mythical island of Saint Marie, home to the BBC Television's "Death in Paradise" series, which has far more than its fair share of murders, the Mixo Games created location of Turtle Bay is similarly affected.  However, in this case, the affliction concerns natural disasters rather than the murder of individual residents of the island.  You can visit this location and discover more about it with a visit to Twistinfo - Turtle Bay Collector's Edition game.

The usual options are available prior to entering this gaming environment.  Profiles can be created to record the progress of different players,  Adjustments can be made to audio levels used for background music and sound effects including the voice dialogue used throughout the story line.  The game can be played in full screen mode with a choice of Casual, Normal or Extreme difficulty which does seem to have its biggest influence on the speed at which the local version of Bingo is played during this game.

Currently Turtle Bay is suffering from a couple of natural disasters.  The island had been hit by a series of earthquakes that caused considerable damage that had affected the layout of the island's natural resources.  As a result, the area's most world famous inhabitants' nesting beds were now hidden beneath layers of rocks.  The eggs they contained needed to be found and rescued in order for the turtles to survive.  You will also be required to help repair the damage affecting the human community.

Your work will involve carrying out a series of game-like tasks as you attempt to recover turtle eggs, collect pearls to restore the island's finances and help the residents restore facilities such as shops and local businesses.  Sometimes you will need to find items that are listed on appearing labels displayed in a Hidden Object scene or the task could take a clutter approach as items will need to be selected in pairs.  As this type of task proceeds you will uncover pieces of a special amulet or a collection of pearls.

As mentioned earlier, Bingo is a big favourite with the inhabitants of Turtle Bay and this influence can be seen in certain tasks.  You might need to find the numbers listed on Bingo cards as a flowing stream of numbered balls makes its way across the screen.  A similar approach is used when rescuing discovered eggs.  With this task you will need to match decorated flowing balls with the pebbles resting on the eggs.

Linking together the game's various elements and helping the flow of the story line are cut-scenes as an overlaid video of an island's inhabitant delivers spoken dialogue. 

The game will require you to find seven completed amulets giving the island its special facilities, rescued all the turtle eggs and collected all the pearls scattered around Turtle Bay.  Once completed you will gain access to the game's CE content.  This will allow you access to 39 mini games that are categorised as Bingo Blitz, Infinite Matching, Solitaire Collection and Pachinko Blitz.  You can also replay the game's opening intro, view a gallery of images, view collectibles and replay the game's music.

Although  it took a little while to get used to this title style of play, I felt the mixture of the game's different tasks worked well, although some of the pauses as you moved between the different features were, perhaps, a little lengthy.  I downloaded my copy of the game from Gamehouse.com where it is priced at $19.99.  You can also download it from Big Fish Games priced at £15.79.  The game requires a 1.6 GHz processor with 2048MB of RAM and 961MB of hard disk space running Windows 7 and later.
