Secrets of the Seas: Flying Dutchman walkthrough
Premise: It’s sometime in the 1700’s or early 1800’s and your friend Michael has invited you to visit him — but, just before your arrival, a huge black ship appears as if out of nowhere on a gigantic wave which destroys the sailing ship you’re travelling on, and you find yourself lying facedown on the beach amid pieces of wood. You find Michael’s house, but it’s locked up and a notice has been posted that the house is about to be auctioned off. Michael has recently lost everything to gambling, and he is now tied up at the dock, awaiting his fate. He will have to serve on that black ship, and by the time the first hour is up, so will you.
Hints: As always, I advise playing on the easiest setting. ~ This is an Adventure Game, so it’s up to you to figure out what to do. Luckily, it’s pretty intuitive, so just click where you think there might be something you can use, and try combining things. ~ A clever lobster can give you hints. ~ Tip the top of your screen toward you to see the hidden objects more clearly. ~ In a hidden object scene, an item can be a mere representation — like a shadow, a drawing, or some other kind of image.
My Review: This game had me from the opening scene — which was just the main menu! — and it got better from there. The action scenes are grippingly cinematic, and the artwork is realistic and beautifully rendered. I love the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, and this game is strongly reminiscent of those, visually and musically. I can’t wait to get back on that ship and save Michael, myself, and any other mortal who might be trapped there. Yes, it’s a ghost ship, manned by skeletons and captained by a phantom, and we all might be doomed. Wow, I love this game!
My Recommendation: If you love the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, are intrigued by the gritty world of pirates, or just want to go back in time and have a hair-raising adventure, try this one.
