"It isn't rocket science, is it?"

Reviewed by / Apr 08, 2013

A smart puzzle game

Rocket Island is an example of smart puzzle gaming, suited for brainy gaming lovers and those who want to have a good time without having to shoot at everything moving alike. In addition, steampunk design is lovely, and you can choose how much stress you want to "enjoy" by selecting between casual or action game modes. Yes, meteors are also a nice touch, indeed.

Your goal is to raise your islands in order to eventually build space shuttles to evacuate your population to a moon colony before something bad (namely the aforementioned meteor, but also tsunamis and earthquakes) happens and horribly kills them all. In your first turn you can only pick a tile to raise, two in the second and so on as long as you keep it combo'ed, this is, selecting all tiles with the same type.

It may sound as a cliche, but this is a game learned in a minute that can be enjoyed for hours. A great move by Handy Games, a developer known for outstanding and original games as Dynamite Fishing. On the other hand, it only comes with a few levels for free, though it offers a new way to unlock the whole game: you can pay for it, of course, or you can download a sponsored app instead.

    Well executed and very pretty, but the same complaint as some others here - the random events mean that luck trumps skill, and that ultimately limits its long term appeal.
