Charming nurikabe game with a nice little story and pretty graphics. The music creates a nice mood and has variety .. some pieces are orchestral-style, one sounds like lounge music. The puzzles are designed by hand rather than generated, which I think gives them a certain elegance. At first I didn't like that you got points off for mistakes, but it gives you an incentive to replay to improve your score.
Almost good As everyones been saying...the game gets frustrating when theres more than one solution (examples: the board with all 2s, and the board with the 4 in the bottom right corner). I understand these are difficult to make, which is probably why Picma has so few puzzles...but at least all of those are solvable. It also took me the entire demo to get the hang of the play, and move past "this is so frustrating, what is the additional rule i am missing" to "its not me, the game is genuinely flawed". Demo needs more
Edit: pretty good "The rules are complicated and convoluted. I keep backtracking to the tutorial when Ducky says I messed up. I'm sure there's one solution to each puzzle, but I'm too lazy to get the rules down solid. The cute little pixel dioramas for passing really made me happy (but the rest of the interface was rather plain and clunky)" Edit: ahhh I finished the demo and got up the learning curve anyways. Its pretty good!
What the? I'm an intelligent person, but there's either something I'm not understanding about the rules of this game, or I agree with all the other people who say there is more than one possible solution. Perhaps the rules need to be expressed more clearly. Number lsland is much better and a whole lot easier to follow because the rules are clear and they make sense! Sorry, developers, I'm uninstalling.
Inaccurate It looks for only one specific solution and views alternate (and valid) solutions as incorrect! A shame, because the graphics are rather unique and cool...
