Review Island Castaway: Lost World

Brandon Girod
Great graphics, the story is grammatically well written.
The game tends to hold your hand almost to complete automation, the quests and content are boring
Island Castaway for Android is an adventure game that never really lets go of your hand. In fact, it abuses the tutorial concept so much that you can almost make the game play itself in some circumstances.
While playing through the game, I was hard-pressed to think of the demographic that game was trying to target. I mean, here we’ve got a bunch of survivors that curse like sailors - one even trying to take advantage of the others by opening up a shop selling valuable survival items - but the game treats you like a child the whole way through.
The graphics and presentation are really nice. The story isn’t half bad, and you can tell that it was actually written by native English speakers, for a change. Unfortunately, I just couldn’t find anything that interesting about the game. Everything was a fetch quest, or a “go talk to xyz” quest. Sometimes I was tasked with building things, and other times I was tasked with learning how to cook. But I was never left alone to actually fend for myself.
I guess if anything can really be said about the game, it’s that it’s really inoffensive. Unless, you know, you actually enjoy a bit of real gameplay with your games.
Island Castaway is a game that touts it’s all about adventure, but leaves adventure out in the cold. The touchscreen controls are responsive and the UI is intuitive, but the content of the game itself is just boring.
