Treasure Island is a simultaneous strategy game. It combines the intensity and unpredictability of real-time strategy games with the "go at your own pace" and control of turn-based strategy games. Both sides move at the same time, but they can move only one person at a time. You can pause or modify the game speed at any time. Although there are gobs and gobs of action, chases, and combat, no one gets killed, and there's no blood. The goal: Your team lands on a treasure island and attempts to find the buried treasure chests and get them back to one of your ships. Of course, a Pirate team has also landed on the island and is determined to get the treasure chests back to their ships first. There are multiple treasure chests on each island, and you must get more than half of the the treasure chests to your ships to win.
