User Summary: You are an archaeologist working on an ancient Spanish ship wreckage near the Caribbean island of San Salvador. Can you save a man from falling victim to a centuries-old curse?
Guillermo's Thoughts: After two underwhelming entries in a row, the Storytrails series picks up the pace again with this excellent horror title. Island of the Walking Dead is a predecessor to the zombie gamebook craze that would begin decades later. It tells an engaging story clearly influenced by George Romero movies. In terms of gameplay, the book can be quite challenging to complete. It is definitely worth a read if you can find it.
