Is It Any Good?

Nanda's Island has a fun concept, but slightly flawed execution. The puzzles are very challenging (maybe too challenging at the beginning) but should prove entertaining for lovers of brain games. It would have been better if the line-drawing mechanic was a little more precise and if you didn't have to scroll around so much to see the entire play area, but on the whole the game works pretty well. Being able to customize your island as a reward for winning levels is a nice touch, too. Overall, Nanda's Island is a decent but unspectacular puzzle game.
