Critic Reviews for Pony Island

9 / 10.0

I greatly enjoyed the two or so hours it took me to play through Pony Island. This is a game that delights in toying with your expectations and in breaking the fourth wall, in revealing its sinister yet playful world, and in building up a compelling antagonist and telling an ambiguous story. Pony Island is about as punk rock as they come.

Sharp, multilayered satire that remembers to be a game even as it makes fun of us for playing.

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.

Pony Island's action sequences are repetitive and unforgiving, but the bizarre narrative doles out intrigue and humor in equal parts

Pony Island messes with players in unexpected ways that stuck with me for days. It took a number of unexpected turns that caught me off guard and was constantly filling me with a sense of inescapable unease. It wasn't on my radar at all before it released, but at under $5 it's a wonderful use of two hours of your life.

Pony Island is a unique, weird, impossible-to-descrive little game. It's clever, often surprising and with tons of personality, but its mechanics can prove a bit repetitive.

Games have taught us to expect the expected, but Pony Island throws the rulebook out the window in this puzzle-cum-runner title where you must escape Satan's clutches.

I haven't played anything as engaging and interesting as Pony Island in a long time.
