Guillaume Ortega & Eric Caginicolau recently contacted me about their new puzzle app game Islands Planet.
You may recall that Guillaume Ortega made Akari 3D last year. It made the prestigous list of Best Puzzle App in 2012. Such an excellent puzzle app game!
Islands Planet: this is a spherical version of Nurikabe from Nikoli press in Japan. Each square is either land or ocean. No two islands can touch each other. Diagonal touching is okay. There cannot be a 2x2 grid that contains only ocean. Also, you cannot create a lake that is enclosed. See the second image for that.
Islands Planet has exactly the right number of puzzle levels: 20 easy, 20 medium, 20 hard & 20 very hard. I've done all of them! It took about 2 weeks. I definitely struggled on some of them and had to restart.
Islands Planet is absolutely one of the Best Puzzle App Games of 2013. The graphics are outstanding. Most importantly, the puzzles are fun!
