About Pony Island

About this game

Pony Island is a suspense puzzle game in disguise. You are in limbo, trapped in a malevolent and malfunctioning arcade machine devised by the devil himself. The devil detests having his puzzles solved and poor programming exposed; you will need to think outside the box to proceed and you will be insulted when you do.

In Pony Island you will...

  • Peer behind the rotting curtain of "Pony Island" to repair its broken code
  • Be forced to play along with The Devil's demented game of ponies
  • Explore the depths of the cryptic software system that runs His game


This game is about as indie as it gets.

Softpedia

85 / 100
"Pony Island is a small game that will never manage to get the audience of an AAA release but in many ways, this game is more engaging than plenty of the big launches of last...

VideoGamer

90 / 100
"Part puzzle game, part retro experience, part mindfuck, I haven't played anything as engaging and interesting as Pony Island in a long time."

Metro GameCentral

90 / 100
"A fantastically clever deconstruction of video games and the people that play them, as well as a hugely entertaining action puzzler that’s not really about ponies."

Simple but effective gameplay. I really felt like I was on an island of ponies. Not too long, but good value for the price.
