Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure (2007) is a point-and-click adventure where you play Zack, a young pirate, and his golden monkey companion, Wiki, as they embark on a quest to find a legendary treasure. To play you explore the colorful levels solving environmental puzzles to progress. It stands out for its high-production cartoon feel and Indiana-Jones-style treasure-hunting adventure that works well for children.

Shortly after joining a band of pirates Zack and Wiki discover a talking skull that tasks you with finding the rest of its body. In return, it promises to lead them to the Treasure Island. Zack & Wiki is a twist on the standard point-and-click play. You use the Wii Remote to point and interact with each area as well as move the two characters around to get to the treasure chest and complete the challenge.

As you progress you also use the motion-sensitive controller to mimic real-world actions like pulling levers, turning keys, and pouring liquids. You can also shake the Wii Remote to turn any nearby enemies into tools for solving the current puzzle.

The result is an endearing adventure with simple interactions, puzzles and exciting boss battles. The lighthearted storyline combines with lively music to create an enjoyable challenge for the whole family. It's a great game for parents and children to have fun together.
