Developed by Hudson Soft, Super Adventure Island is a continuation of the series following its lovable hero Master Higgins. Our adventure begins with Master Higgins and Tina hanging out and enjoying life. Moments later an evil sorcerer appears and turns his girlfriend, Tina, into a stone statue. Motivated by love, Master Higgins sets off to save Tina from the clutches of evil and reverse the spell's effects. A feat he accomplishes while not wearing a shirt."
