Point and click ... with a boat [Lone Eagle - Colombian Encounter]

Post by Sahnewuerstchen »

Hello all,

I hope you have a good time, greetings from Germany.

looking for a game since ... dont know. Played it in 93 to 96 I think. And I played it just for few hours - so what I remeber:

- you start with a sailing boat
- you can control the boat like a subject in a Point and click adventur (Monkey Island etc.)
- can move the boat from screen to screen (left, right, up, down --> point and click)
- the boat is on an ocean, at the beginning there is a coastline
- if the boat ventures too far out into the ocean, an armed (military) ship appears and the game is over
- if the boat ventures too far to right or left (I dont know), a thunderstorm appears and the game is over

Is anybody out there, who knows what I m talking about? :rolleyes:

I wonder, did you have an objective, like navigating to a specific place, and did you get there eventually?

I recall a follow-up game module to Dink Smallwood, in which you started on the ocean, and you had to cause the ship to change course, or you never got past the first section...there was a lot of puking going on too...I think it was available as a free download, not officially published.

Otherwise if it was a modern sailing boat, and not a ship it is probably another game.

Hello,

thanks a lot for Your answers. I think it is Lone Eagle!! Looks a bit different, because I had a shareware/Demo version.

Thank you very much. :love:

Cool.

You can grab the shareware here: lone_s21.zip

UPD: Apologies, this version I linked to seems to be broken :(
