"A long time ago in a galaxy far far away"

Treasure Island LCD Retro is an Android game inspired by handy arcade videogames.

Videogames industry is now even more profitable and powerful than Hollywood and other film industries. Videogames have reached such a degree of realism that seem movies. However, there was a time (like thirty years ago) when videogames were rudimentary titles developed into individual mobile arcade machines. Treasure Island LCD Retro brings to your Android that first gaming experience.

Although all graphics were redrawn by hand and game logic mostly by memory, this is an exact replica of those retro games regarding both, graphics and gameplay. PIRAMIDA Entertainment, its developer, has done a great job with that. For those who have never played this kind of games, there's a tutorial to get the hang of it. I understand that can be weird in the beginning.

Game is based on treasure-hunting. There are up to 4 regular levels and some bonus levels between them. Every level is complete when getting 500 points that players can score by finding treasures, bringing them to your ship and bombing enemies. Controls are intuitive and that beeps and ticks will bring your back you the early eighties.

Whether you want to remember those wonderful years as you want to discover what videogames were played in the early 80's, Treasure Island LCD Retro is your personal time-machine.

Stage 1: move from left to right, pick the key and enter the hut. Avoid the enemies.
Stage 2: move from right to left, drop the bomb to pirate hideout when you're at the middle position by pressing BOMB/STOP; after the hideout is destroyed, the raft appears, so you can bring treasure chest on your ship. Avoid the enemies.
Stage 3: same as stage 1, but more enemies appear, also a bird can steal the key you carry.
Stage 4: same as stage 2, but more enemies appear, also a bird can steal the treasure you carry.

Bonus stage Casino: press BOMB/STOP button to stop the spinning numbers. If all 3 numbers match, points are added to your score.
