Some 150 years after the events of the book, Mina, a young and carefree navigator taking part in the Jules Verne competition, is also cast ashore on the island after her ship sinks. At first, she must recover physically from her ordeal by finding items to eat, and then she sets off to explore this new territory cut off from the world in the hopes of finding a way to leave and return home.
The adventure reaches its end after Mina discovers the island's secret, meets Captain Nemo's ghost, and neutralizes the magnetic shield which isolates and conceals the island from the outside world. The cinematic end sequence shows the rescue services’ helicopter Mina had called land on the beach.
The intent of the game Secrets of The Mysterious Island is to make the players return to this island, which they so much enjoyed exploring, and to make them once again embody the young Mina who, according to numerous forums, was also well-liked...
The first Return to Mysterious Island ends with the unlocking
of the shield which isolated the island from the rest of the world. The second
installment begins with the crash of the helicopter that came to rescue Mina: a
sudden volcanic eruption brought down the aircraft. Mina survived but is once
again trapped on the island.
She searches Captain Nemo's base in vain, then the ruins of an unknown civilization, afterwards, she finally understands that it is outside pollution that threatens the island.
The only way to save this natural wonder is to turn the shield back on. If Mina makes this decision, she gives up, as Nemo did before her, the idea of returning to civilization.
