 Adventure Island

As the visitor travels around an Adventure Island, descriptive writing for each area encourages you to explore further. Will you be able to survive, and leave the island, or will you remain forever ... trapped? Classes can use this hypertext tool to create their own interactive island adventure. Teachers do not need to know HTML as the tool creates everything. Browse the islands already created. Or contact us for a teacher's password to create your island.

With 19 random beginnings and 17 random endings. Teachers' Notes included. (Added July 2003)
