"The pacing and visualization of the bizarre game world make the experience more deeply immersive, better realized. Archipelagos' unique combination of strategy with an element of encroaching menace should have similar appeal to a certain set today as it did back in 1989" - 3.5 stars - TouchArcade

"3D classic. A little Minecraft before its time. At this price you've got very little to complain about." - PocketGamer

"This game from the late 80’s stands the test of time and will certainly attract a new audience looking for something unique and different to try out." - iGame Radio

In Archipelagos you are floating just a metre above the ground, as if disembodied, amongst a group of islands known as an Archipelago. Scattered around the Archipelago are stones, and somewhere there is one special stone – the Obelisk. Embodied in the Obelisk, is the power that cleansed the Archipelago of humans in ancient times. And the blood of the ancient times still comes to stain the land surface.

- The classic game now updated for Android devices
- 100 levels of eerie gameplay
- Original score by David Whittaker
- Set in a surreal 3D landscape of oceans and islands
- Blood Eggs, Whirlwinds, Stones and Obelisks

Picture an island of palm and a tropical sea,
that’s where it is you’d like to be.
And if you wonder what’s behind that beach,
just a little out of reach,
just float there and you’ll know.
You could create an Archipelago!

    Takes me back to the early 90's playing on my Amiga 500! This game translates well to a smartphone. Thanks for the memories!!!

    Nice update to the classic for the nay sayers it always was that hard to move you click where you want to stand and are then above that square so always click in front of things

    Terrible. I can not turn myself round or stop moving in one direction. Bad game, good pictures

    I was very happy when this game appeared on Play as the PC version was one of my all time favourites. Would give it 5* if there were 10,000 levels like the original!

    Graphically stunning but textures need to have more of a shade difference , not partically playerble on motorola xoom movement is ok but interacting with objects its unresponsive at times and need to be almost ontop of the stone to destroy it, I`ll rat

    Takes a while to get going. But it is entertaining. Way too easy to move by accident though.
