Better than it sounded! This is a game like no other. It's not REALLY like minesweeper - it's much better! And it beats sudoku and that silly Princess Nurikabe game hands down! Excellent job, developers!
Why can't you lock squares as water? Would be a great game if you could mark the squares that you know must be water. Without that feature you lose the logic part of the game and it becomes more of a trial and error game
Great puzzle ruined by crufty, inadequate interface. I love nurikabe (the original name of this puzzle) but this is a terrible implementation. It's a fixed sequence of 'levels,' which is absurd for a logic puzzle akin to sudoku...I guess they wanted it to seem like angry birds or candy crush? But the interface is a perfect failure. It gives you no way to mark the 'water' squares--only the 'land.' The way you solve nurikabe is by doing both at once...I know this has to be water, so this has to be land...and you can't do that here. No good at all.
An interesting take on nurikabe, but there's no way to mark which squares stay empty, which is an important part of the game...
Love nurikabe Thanks to the author for being active in here. I need 1 feature before I spend money : mark squares as "not valid" Do that and I will buy all the levels you make :-)
