Adventure Island: The Beginning, known in Japan as Takahashi Meijin no Bōken Jima Wii (高橋名人の冒険島Wii, "Master Takahashi's Adventure Island Wii"), is a platforming video game released for the Wii's WiiWare service. It was developed and published by Hudson Soft in 2009.

Gameplay[]

The game features gameplay similar to the NES version of Adventure Island, but with a 3D graphics makeover. Players control Master Higgins, running and jumping through levels and dispatching enemies with axes, boomerangs and spears. They must also collect food items in order to maintain a constantly depleting vitality meter. Players can also upgrade their abilities and weapons by finding golden melons and trading them in at a shop on the overworld map.

The game also features four minigames, including skateboarding (that uses the motion sensing of the Wii Remote), axe throwing and a virtual re-creation of Hudson's 16-Shot handheld gaming device, which measures how many button presses a player can achieve in a second.
