Treasure Madness is yet another game that involves treasure hunting and digging the land for hidden wealth. What makes this game different from the other games that have the same themes that pop up recently in Facebook? We at Mabel Games will go through with you our readers together to see you this game is worth investing your time into.
Treasure Madness is another typical Treasure hunting game that recently been introduce to the Facebook community. Like the game Treasure Isle by Zynga, this game is based on treasure hunting and explorations. However, you must be asking what makes this game different from any other treasure hunting game out there?
First off we look at the interface of Treasure Madness. The thing here is, this game is not fully base on Flash alone. I do notice that some part of the game is made out of web interface. This is kind of unique with the mixture of both worlds. Health bars and inventory menus are located on the right side of the screen and it is not part of flash, rather it is web based here. On the centre of the screen is where you do your main interaction.
The Game first introduce you to the welcome screen and as soon as you click PLAY, you will be display with the loading screen of the Bi-Plane flying to a unknown island. This is where you game starts. Tutorial in this game is simple and rather short.
Once you reach the island you will be instructed to DIG the grown you walk on. From there it is really depends on your luck to see what you can find below. Funny part of the game here is if you do not find anything the your character will shout out loud in strange symbols (You might get the joke to this if you read a lot of comics) and if you do find something a new screen will pop up and provide you with a challenge. This is where this game truly shines compared to Treasure Isle.
Each finding will provide you with a mini-game which is randomly generated and provide players with a chance to play games like Fruittle, Pearls Mania and a few others more. Each games plays differently and this allow players to actually play the game without getting bored of the same old thing over and over again.
The mini-games are easy to play and most will come with a simple instruction on how the game works. After a few hours into the game, I really love how the developers do with all the mini-games as some is very addictive and easy to master for all ages. Once you completed the mini-game a reward will be provided to the player. However if the player somehow lose during the mini-game, then no reward is offer. Somehow this game provides player with challenge to always try to beat the mini-game to gain extra bonus items.
The game itself is not only about digging the ground you walk on, you will also have to chop down trees, vines and also do a little mining operations. However most equipment need to be purchase and it does not come cheap. So for the first few round, players will be limited to digging the earth a bit.
Something I do notice is that once you finish a map, player will then have to purchase a new map in order to continue their treasure hunting quest. This is where a bit of resource management comes in as you need to plan a bit on what to buy and what not. Nothing is really serious on this part of the game play.
Another thing we look at is the inventory system. The inventory system can be access at anytime and the right side of the screen. Mainly the only thing the players need to worry about is their health as it is used to help player continue their hunting. Best part, fruits or health regeneration pack is easily come back and the health refill counter is also limited to 35 seconds. It is very easy for your health bar to replenish while players take a short break.
Not really the best graphic you can find in Facebook gaming as some of the texture in the game is rather simple and plain. But this is not to say this is an ugly game to begin with. This game does has its shines in the graphic department.
I do not really comment much on the sound as I do not really recall having any music. Sound FX and rather plain, but for this sort of game it is rather suitable as you do not really need to hear a lot from the game itself.
This is rather a unique game that will provide players of all ages’ fun and entertainment for hours to come. I for one rather enjoy the game a lot especially the mini-game part. I would like to see more contents update for this game in the future. Happy Hunting Everyone!
I give this game a 4 out of 5 score.
