Microïds’ Successful PC and iPhone App Inspired by Jules Verne’s Classic Novels

Adds New Content and Enhanced Graphics for September 22nd Debut
 
MONTREUIL – September 24, 2010 – It is a world imagined by Jules Verne, but now the power to explore it is yours. Microïds, one of the world’s leading publishers of adventure games for PC and Mac, iPad, iPhone, iPod, iPod touch, today announce the launch of Return to Mysterious Island – Deluxe Edition for the iPad. Introducing all new content and stunning graphics that take full advantage of the iPad (touch screen, accelerometer, enhanced graphics), the game builds upon a franchise that has sold over 850,000 copies on PC, iPhone and iPod touch to date. Return to Mysterious Island – Deluxe Edition will be available for download in the iTunes App Store for 7.99€.
 
Based on Verne’s classic novel “The Mysterious Island”, Return to Mysterious Island – Deluxe Edition puts players’ survival skills to the test. In this first-person adventure with intuitive point-and-click navigation, players take on the role of Mina, a shipwrecked woman on a solo round-the-world sailing expedition. Using logic, creative inventory management, and elements of the supernatural to explore recognizable locations from the famous novel including the granite house, the volcano and the Nautilus, players are tasked with one priority -- escape. Sophisticated puzzle challenges and vast exploration of the lush tropical landscapes, along with splendid photorealistic pre-rendered vistas, combine for the ultimate adventure game experience.
 
"Return to Mysterious Island" also highlights Jep’s presence, a monkey that Mina will meet on the island and she can use him to reach inaccessible places. Finally, three types of interactive assistances (posters of available places or interactions with the decors) and a scoring system (obtained thanks to object combinations and the number of hours to finish the adventure) are available.
 
The Deluxe Edition of the game features bonus content and an enhanced user interface giving gamers more on-screen options than ever before. The extra content extends average gameplay to more than 16 hours and provides those familiar with the title with new twists and turns to explore.
