A mysterious tropical paradise known as Adventure Island is the setting for this side-scrolling action game. The evil Witch Doctor has kidnapped Tina, the true love of Master Higgins. To save her, you must safely guide Master Higgins through eight perilous stages - including dense forests and creepy caves - while defeating all of the enemies in your path. Each area is made up of four rounds filled with enemies determined to stop you in your tracks.
As if this wasn't tough enough, as time passes Master Higgins' vitality is automatically drained. To keep going, he must eat constantly by grabbing fruit, milk and whatever other goodies he can as he races towards his goal.
Sometimes eggs containing miraculous items will appear, such as axes to throw at your enemies or honey that grants temporary invincibility. Use these items skilfully to help you clear the areas. At the end of each area you'll face the Witch Doctor, whom you must defeat to advance. Go, Master Higgins, go!
