@Lord EAA and others
If you liked this, try Tales From The Bird Islands (its this plus multiple other islands written by several authors on the site).

Spent entire timing getting money for everything, boat capsized, lost everything (and was back at starting island), went loot wreckage, got tired, eaten by hyena. Would have been fun if it wasn't for that.
In the standalone Isle Of The Cyclops you cannot escape Goi-Han... you need Tales From The Bird Islands if you want to do that.

Did you find out too that a pack of hyenas is the most valuable asset to a local economy?:-)
I still remember paying my way with hyena pelts the first time I tried that adventure about a decade ago.
I subsequently limited the number of hyenas, I felt that the ecosystem couldn't support an infinite number of them.

Thoroughly enjoyed this adventure, although it took a fair few attempts before I managed to get a successful ending. Nice work

Still rather fun, if a little short and in some ways more like an rpg than a traditional gamebook with the monster area and village. I wanted to try the stand alone version before I give the more complete scenario in Bird Islands a go, though I'm interested to see what the additional challenges are.

A fun little adventure, and I appreciate the efforts to allow non-linear exploring and to add replayability with random-encounter-style events. However, my problem was that there just aren't enough of these random encounters; having walked round the island in circles several times and slogged through seemingly endless tropical storms and hyena attacks, I started to get a little frustrated at the repetition. Having to pop to the pub in Han every time I ran low on stamina was also a little annoying. I still kept going to defeat the cyclops (with the aid of some lucky dice-rolling) though.

This is terrible! All I have done is walk round and round and round in circles around the cliffs and hills. I met the Hermit guy and then found his amulet after killing the Bamboo Ape that stole it, but I couldn't find him again to return it. Then I eventually went back to Han to travel to Sempura, but the ship was rubbish and then I blacked out. Washing ashore on Han again, walking back round the cliffs. I decided to investigate the Blood Auk ship wreck for even more treasure than before, some purple crabs jumped out and killed me from nowhere!!! So I never got very far at all. If any of you guys have can you please let me know, coz I really wanted to get further!

Not too shabby. First one I've tried.

Using metres to describe the Cyclops's height doesn't really fit the feeling of playing a sword & sorcery type medieval game book. If it was a Sci-Fi Cyclops then perhaps, but here it should be the good olde English system of feet and inches.

If you wannna get the best stuff constantly go north then south and sell the hyena pelts you get it's a really good tactic
