About this game

Vulture Island is a platform adventure with a distinct focus on exploration to tickle your curiosity.

Rather than stacking up high scores and running towards the end of each level, you get to roam freely in an open world and explore caves, swamps, temples, pirate ships and more.

You collect objects along your way, solve puzzles and talk to NPCs, all while being wrapped inside the platform gameplay mechanism we all have to come to love since the golden era of 8-bit computers and consoles.

Vulture Island has been awarded the Pocket Gamer Gold Award.


Benjamin has built a spectacular flying machine to take him and his friends around the world.
During one of the first flight sessions something goes wrong. The youngsters have no choice but to parachute themselves to safety.

After an exhausting swim Alex, Paul and Stella end up on a distant island. Barehanded and with no trace of Benjamin.


* Non-linear gameplay: Explore the island freely
* Non-destructive gameplay: When failing, you're simply thrown back to the overview map instead of losing all progress
* Interact with characters, trade tools and help each other
* Collect items to your inventory
* Solve puzzles
* Battle enemies & bosses

A strange n short experience but still fun and worth the price. Pretty comical story, but what's weird was gameplay structure, didn't know where to start as you can go anywhere and choose anyone, but eventually you'll get the hang of it and feels like a open ended platforming fetch quest and that's not a criticism, it was actually a great way of doing it. A couple puzzles were confusing and got lost on what to do sometimes for longer than should'a but another great Donut 🍩 games um uh... game!?

Can't tell how good this game is, oozes retro platformer, but not only in a nostalgic way, the simple controls works perfect without external joypad, the dialogue is well-written and has lots of humour, the game is open-world and challenging without being frustrating when some patience is added. Throwback to Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap.

Brilliant puzzle-platformer from the devs of the also brilliant Traps 'n' Gemstones. This one presents initially as a standard 2D platformer with the Mario 3 style overworld, but you quickly realise that you can play any of the levels in any order at any time. Indeed you need to keep revisiting because there's a Metroidvania element here where items acquired from one level will let you progress in another. There's also NPCs to talk to and do quests for which gain you items and progress. Further to that, there are three characters each with their own set of contained levels and all of these must be completed to finish the game; but you can hop between them at will so if you're stuck with one character you can try out another one. Overall it's brilliant stuff and comes highly recommended.
