King Kong Google Earth Game

They call the game “Find Skull Island” based on the recent King Kong Movie directed by Peter Jackson. It is an excellent blend of a web site (in several languages) using Flash and Google Earth. The game has very well done graphics and uses clips, music and sounds from the movies. As you play along you get tasty morsels of downloads including “exclusive” unseen clips from the movie and wall papers. You also get placemarks and an image overlay of Skull Island somewhere in the ocean. After you get a few of the downloads and proceed to King Kong’s lair, you have to buy the DVD from to proceed further (they give you a code you have to enter to proceed).

  1. wow .. great combo of GE and website .. Skull island appears to be made up of cut pieces of existing landforms in GE .. here’s a post we made showing the top of NZ and a skull island overlay.

  2. Hello !
    Very good idea to have make this island for Google Earth! What don’t I include/understand, this is why near to Africa? Whereas that must be near to Singapore! What would have been well, it is to explore the island in High Resolution!
