You, as Nancy Drew, head to Hawaii to serve as a research assistant to Dr. Quigley Kim, who investigates insect behavior, diet, breeding, nests, just about bug everything! But when you arrive on the Big Island and drive into the middle of the jungle to look for Dr. Kim and her camp, you find it in ruins and she is nowhere to be found! Another strange thing that has been going on is that the pineapple crop seems to have nearly been destroyed. Locals are saying it’s the legendary monster named Kane ‘Okala who is destroying the crop. Could something more sinister be behind the pineapple shortage, and also the disappearance of Dr. Kim?
Something I think is super cool about this one is that you get to team up with the Hardy Boys and you can go back and forth between being Nancy, Frank, or Joe. This one has plenty of activities, but one thing I didn’t like is that it didn’t seem like there were a lot of places to go and there weren’t very many secret passages/tunnels.
A few highlights of the game are looking for sea shells and making necklaces with them, fishing, doing insect research for Dr. Kim (although I might not call that a highlight because it wasn’t very fun), and making shave ice!
