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

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.

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 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.
