About

Arcade soul

Game by the authorship of one person: Daniel Mullins. The developer conceived it as an interactive arcade machine, which was called Pony Island. According to the idea, the player soon learns that the machine is infected with a certain demon, which captures the souls of players.

Key features

The main character gets help from the soul of a player already captured: he could not cope with the devil's trials. Pony Island is a point-and-click game that simulates the operating system using the user interface. The main task of the player is to study the internal software shell of the gaming machine, where he got stuck and tried to escape the demon. The gameplay of the game changes constantly and the player needs to participate in mini-games like endless runner and shoot-em-up.

Money for the dream

Prior to Pony Island, Daniel Mullins was already trying to release the game: right after college, in 2014, he collected the necessary money to develop his first game Catch Monsters. The successful crowdfunding experience allowed Daniel to pursue his dream and not work on boring work in the office. Pony Island was developed in just 48 hours, during the Ludum Game Jam, and later appeared on the platform for indie games Steam Greenlight. After that, the popular YouTube PewDiePie recorded and published a let's play of the game, after which the game gained enough votes, and a full release happened.

Pony Island reviews and comments

This Game is simply the Hammer. When you hear the Title, you first think of a Flashgame for Children. That's definitely not the case here! If you expect something 08/15 moderate here, you will be disappointed. It is varied, funny and partially straves the Brain. From Platforming passages, to Puzzles, to the big Brainf * ck, the Game has it all. Plus, the Humor is unique and hits my Taste. If you consider that the Game was made by only a Handful of People, you can just say: Top! All in all, a short but really nice Game, which I can only recommend to everyone, is extended because of the small Price. Edit: Two friendly People played the Game with me (one Evening each) and were both thrilled.

Game presentation: + uniform CRT retro look + very good Soundtrack + glitch effects and chromatic Aberration as stylistic Design: + varied Tasks + games in the Game + wonderfully implemented hacking balance: + constantly Increasing Difficulty level + Easy To understand game principle + gameplay and story matched + no Questionable hack puzzle atmosphere: + gloomy creepy mood + Devil Depicted as a Programmer + lots of surprises and cool Ideas + breaking the Fourth Wall circumference: + 24 Tickets to Collect + secret Ending/Optional Ways-Little game time (max 1.5h -3h)-Little replayed Conclusion: A very cool Game what plays with the Atmosphere. Glitche Serve as Game Elements and build the Story on which even the "4th Wall" break through. Extremely cool Ideas to Irritate the Player and exploit his Habits Of steel messages, Facebook message sound. An all-tessential Game which has potential upwards (DLC). Clear Buy Clam 88/100

I would name Pony Island as an Insider tip, for People who like twisted Games where you also have to use your Head. Everyone will certainly not like it, but the Game is maybe even too demanding in a certain Way, you have to get a bit of pure fuch at some Things. In addition, the Look is also quite old baked, but the Game makes no Secret Of it, which is even an excellent stylistic Device in this Case. At Its core, this is actually a side scroller where you control a Pony. The Mouse is 99% sufficient, you will quickly notice why. The Pony can run, jump and other ... Things... http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1135060679 But the real Fun of the Game lies hidden in all The Passages in between. However, I cannot go Into this In More detail for Spoiler Reasons. 2-4h Rumgehopse including puzzle fun are guaranteed to praise the Developer For this Creativity. Give yourself the Title, if in Doubt in The Sale you can't go wrong. Cheers, Fletcher
A highly recommended game. It’s very challenging (sometimes even too hard for me) but it makes you feel really smart when you finally win. There a lot of obstacles and enemies here, and the difficulty is increasing all the time but the process is over-involving. A 2D platformer setting adds a nostalgic feeling too. Despite the difficulty of the game, you can complete it for 3 hours average, I guess. 
This game tries to be special but in fact it’s an ordinary platformer, quite annoying I must say. If you’re looking for a challenge, better choose another title. This game is very pretentious but shallow. It’ll take you a couple of hours to complete it, even if you try to get every achievement in it. Yes, it’s not a total fail, and some levels are entertaining but it definitely doesn’t deserve that hype it has got.
