JumpStart Adventures 4th Grade Haunted Island Full PC Game Overview
JumpStart Adventures 4th Grade Haunted Island Download Free Full Game was a personal computer game in Knowledge Adventure's JumpStart series of educational software intended, as the title indicates, to teach a fourth grade curriculum. This version of the game was released in 1996, but was retired from the line in 2000 and replaced with JumpStart Adventures 4th Grade: Sapphire Falls, presumably due to it being deemed too scary for an educational game.
The plot, setting and characters of Sapphire Falls are completely unrelated to this game and the only Knowledge Adventure product in which any such elements of this game appeared is the long since discontinued online game of KnowledgeLand. However, while nothing of the plot was included in Sapphire Falls, it does include a few games similar to those from Haunted Island.
While the player is out of school one day, a witch names Mrs. Grunkle turns their classmates into monsters and brings them to her house in Haunted Island. The player, aided by a fortune teller named Madame Pomreeda and a bat named Flap, must traverse through the island and complete games to recover their classmates' possessions, which will change them back to normal. They must also collect 25 keys to reach Mrs. Grunkle's attic, where the kids are held. JumpStart Adventures 4th Grade Haunted Island Free Download.
Storyline and Gameplay
During the game, the player is given missions by Madame Pomreeda. These missions require the player to complete three games to find a student's favorite things. Once the player has completed four missions, the character will be returned to normal, and the player will move on to another student. The game keeps track of a player's successes and failures, and a poor performance in one minigame will lead to it appearing more often.
The player also must collect 25 keys in order to reach the attic, where the kids are being held. These are collected by earning 5000 points in one particular minigame.
The user has a limited amount of «health,» which is indicated by a candle in the upper left hand corner of the screen. Health is depleted through answering Repsac's questions incorrectly and is indicated by the candle burning down. If the candle burns out, the user is cast into the island's labyrinth, which contains a «fountain of health» that will cause the candle to reburn and, eventually, grow back to its original size. However, finding one's way out of the labyrinth is difficult. JumpStart Adventures 4th Grade Haunted Island Free Download PC Game.
In 1998, a revised version of the game was published. Although little was changed in terms of gameplay, an in-game map was added, and the difficulty select was given an icon.
Ms. Grunkle is the game's villainess and the fourth-grade substitute teacher who turned the kids into monsters and brought them to Haunted Island, which she apparently rules over. Her appearance fits the popular depiction of a witch to a tee, with her having gray skin (although it's blue on the icon), black clothing and a pointed hat. Presumably, she was voiced by Jeannie Elias, since Elias was the only female voice actor credited.
Ms. Grunkle appears at the beginning and ending of the game as well as whenever the user enters a new room in her house. Sometime after you finish playing one of the minigames she flies by on her broomstick to taunt the user with typical villainous comments («So, you think you're pretty good at my little games? Well, you haven't seen anything yet!») before flying off. Curiously, she is sometimes referred to as «Mrs. Grunkle,» prompting one to wonder whatever became of her husband (she has a skeleton in her living room watching TV and holding a remote, which could have been her husband at one point). She does not have an explained motivation for her actions in the game. JumpStart Adventures 4th Grade Haunted Island for PC.
Flap is a large, purple bat who provides help to the user, most often by explaining how the game's activities are played. He is commonly seen as the mascot for this version of JumpStart 4th Grade (as Botley is for JumpStart 3rd Grade, Jo Hammet is for JumpStart 5th Grade, etc.) He was probably voiced by Tony Pope.
Madame Pomreeda gives the player the challenges needed to save each kid. Each time she is visited, Madame Pomreeda gives the user one of four cards, each containing three challenges. After the user finishes with four cards, Madame Pomreeda will use the collected objects to determine what the child's true personality is and say a poem aloud to change the kid back. These poems, the spells she uses to activate her crystal ball and the cards she gives the user all make great use of rhyming couplets.
Madame Pomreeda's apparently lives in a circus carriage at the end of the island opposite Ms. Grunkle's house. Although she, her carriage and her magic seem to be very reminiscent of popular depictions of Gypsies, she is blonde-haired and blue-eyed and therefore does not have the physical appearance typically associated with the Romani people. According to Flap, Pomreeda has a «rotten sense of humor,» considering the bugs in the Spider's Web activity cute.
Her name is an obvious play on palm reading. She was also probably voiced by Elias.
Repsac, also referred to as Random Threat by the bugs in the spider web, is a menacing ghost who serves Ms. Grunkle. He occasionally springs upon the user to ask multiple choice questions that will deplete the user's health if answered incorrectly. Most of his questions seem to involve science and grammar, as well as sentence structure. This is presumably due to the fact that the game does not have activities which specifically address these topics.
Repsac is «Casper» spelled backwards, which is quite fitting considering that Repsac's personality is the complete opposite of Casper's. Repsac was probably voiced by Pope as well. JumpStart Adventures 4th Grade Haunted Island Download Torrent.
