Review Isoland

Brandon Girod
9.3Excellent
Excellent sound design, lots of intriguing puzzles, great hint system
Puzzles required a lot of running back and forth, some story disconnects
Isoland for Android is a storybook-esque point and click adventure game that tasks players with solving environmental puzzles in order to progress through the game’s story. You’re given the freedom to solve puzzles at your leisure, though there is a somewhat linear path of progression the game tries to steer you down.
You play as a character named Dr. Cotton who has ended up on a mysterious island after being asked to investigate strange readings coming from the island. You arrive in a rowboat with virtually nothing to help you accomplish this task, so instead, you’ll discover the secrets of the island through puzzle solving.
The game world feels atmospheric with appropriate music and great sound effects. The puzzles are creative, often forcing the player to look around and think outside of the box, but rarely forces them to use trial and error. My one complaint is that the game can sometimes rely too heavily on recollection rather than good old-fashioned problem-solving skills.
The storytelling is great and really manages to bring the puzzles together in a near coherent fashion. There are some disconnects here and there, but the game’s puzzles are the real meat, not the storytelling.
Isoland is a great experience well worth the $.99 price of admission. The world is well built, there is a plethora of puzzles to trudge through, the characters and creatures you meet along the way are intriguing, and so is the story. So do yourself a favor and throw the money down here rather than downloading another arcade puzzle game.
