Escape from Lost Island A woman is enjoying her vacation trip aboard a cruise ship, when suddenly the boat hits a coral reef and starts to sink. She is able to quickly escape in one of the lifeboats, but the vessel is destroyed in an explosion, sending the unlucky woman to the bosom of the sea. She wakes up at the shore of a strange island, and starts to explore the surroundings in a quest to go back to civilization.

Escape from Lost Island is a hidden object game with adventure elements. Instead of the usual list of assorted items that have to be found on each scene, the game follows another school of design, showing a large ring centered on certain hotspots and surrounded by images of the required objects. The player has to click on these hotspots to open them, and then drag and drop all the items on the central circle to perform an action or complete a task. Some of the objects can be out of view, stored inside a container. The player can click on the container to show its contents inside an interactive window. All the pending objectives are displayed at the bottom, with completed ones receiving a thumbs up.

The game progress through several self-contained scenes, with the occasional mini-game taking place on a separate screen. These games have diverse challenges, where circuits have to completed by turning twisted sections of wiring, bags of sand have to be thrown from a catapult to extinguish fire, flying parrots have to be clicked while crossing the jungle, jigsaw puzzles have to be assembled, and other games have to be completed to continue the adventure. These puzzles can be optionally skipped after a few minutes. [source:mobygames]
