Stachmou and the Golden Compass
Long ago, the mighty pirate Jack Treepwood discovered a magical compass. It had the power of pointing in the direction of the most wondrous hidden treasures imaginable. Soon, "Lucky Jack" became the richest pirate in the world, now apparently content to remain retired and mysteriously out of contact on Taoki island. Stachmou, a slightly less mighty, but still impressively-facial-haired pirate, figures that if the compass is just going to waste, then maybe "Lucky Jack" won't mind if he borrowed it for a bit. Of course, the first order of business is getting to Taoki, and we'll worry about step 2 when we get there. Stachmou and the Golden Compass is a humorous point-and-click adventure developed by Didier Guagliano. Or should that be point-and-click adventARR? It shouldn't? Oh. Alright then.
Click to examine or interact with items, add them to your inventory, or to converse with other characters. To use an item on another, highlight it in your inventory, then click where you want to use it. You can even combine items the same way, too. Short and very silly, Stachmou and the Golden Compass wears its inspirations on its sleeve. And while it's not likely to make people forget Tales of Monkey Island or even Pirates of the Undead Sea any time soon, it does have its own charms to offer. The puzzle are generally logical, even if I'm pretty sure that sawfish don't work that way, and it kept a smile on my face throughout, even if the stilted translation sometimes impeded some of the comedy. So if you're looking for a quick and goofy trip to a desert island while on your coffee break, Stachmou and the Golden Compass is just the game you'll want to have on deck. Savvy?
