Unlike Infocom games, which required you to problem solve various challenges in order to go further in the game, this one is quite flawed. I solved the game years ago, but remembered that it wasn't easy, despite the built-in help. One issue is that the items you needed didn't necessarily look like that they were supposed to in the picture. The two word parser was quite antiquated by then, and it was always a challenge to find the right noun-verb combination to get ahead. Later, I found out you could type in all the "remember" commands on the island without having to play all the way through, and you'd still win! I still liked the game despite the flaws.
