I object 
The mystery island help map is basically a jpeg file with the entire map of mystery island with some comments added. In theory this should help you beat the game. In practice the execution is very poor, let me lay out the problems:

The screens line up badly. Often screens have shifted with respect to each other, and the lines between the screens have been marked either red, blue, white, black or a combination thereof seemingly at random.

The map is also ridiculously large. A 1:1 ratio is just way to large, on my screen resolution it means that I can only see about 1 30th of the map at a time. And zooming out doesn't really help either since the text that has been added is meant to be read when fully zoomed in.

Also the help isn't terribly useful most of the time. I liked the fact that it includes a lay out of how to hit the cameras in the right order and I also like the fact that all the potions are marked. But other than that the comments are just plain useless as they don't tell you in what order you should do things. You'll still need the walkthrough if you're stuck. Which makes this file... Not really useful

I think this is a nice file, that could have been better but that's still useful.
This is a map over mystery island, showing the exact locasions for every monster, potion and other noteable things. One of the best things with this map is that it shows all the cameras, as well as the best way to run between them.

To make the map look better you could have removes the grind, or have all lines in the same colour

This is your best file, Skron, we wan't to see more of this!

After hearing a lot of horrible criticism on this file, I don't understand why they think it's so bad. It's very helpful for showing the paths to avoid cameras, and where everything is located. Only things wrong with it is that a 1:1 ratio is quite large, and scrolling can be a hassle, and that some of the screens aren't lined up completely properly--which that really isn't that big of a deal, and the random colored lines on the screen borders.

Good: Very useful if you don't mind the offset screens/random lines/size of the picture.

Bad: Very vexing if you do mind the aforementioned problems

Overall: Not half bad. (7.5)

Daniel, there are clowns. 
Really, was a 1:1 ratio on the map really necessary? Even then, Skorn couldn't even bother to line up the screens correctly? *Some* of the monsters are poorly blocked out by black blobs rather than fully removed. Only reason I haven't used my admin powers to pull this crap off the site is that the camera run might be useful to someone who doesn't want to spend less than 10 minutes figuring it out on their own.

Yet another no-effort submission by Skorn.
