Neat! If only there were more levels...

allen says ...

Very fun, I second the comment about more levels :)

Geti says ...

That was awesome :D not what I was expecting, but a very nice take on "snake", loved the graphical style.

Jonathan Whiting says ...

Really attractive, a well realized and interesting concept. Only let down by the lack of sound and brevity.

I'd of liked more of the level designs to involve moving through space your tail has previously been. The puzzles were perhaps a little apple+pellet heavy.

Also, some of the pellets seem impossible to get?

Still, pretty cool, enjoyed it :)

smn says ...

Good times! The artwork is charming, the game mechanics well executed, the only downside is that it's rather short, as stated by the other commentators =D

brian says ...

Fantastic, love these sort of games, great graphical style and too short but a really well built little game.

Draknek says ...

I like this. Especially the graphics. Music would have been nice.

Would also have liked a score or something to reward you if you got all the optional pellets.

Doesn't really have much to do with islands.

Endurion says ...

Nice! My son loved it. Desperately needs sound and/or music! Not very islandy though.

pythong says ...

very nice! needs music. also, i thought it was too easy actually

brandoncash says ...

The artworks is really nice! I'd love to see it with some animations, too.

There were some well thought-out levels in here. That really made the game.

Wish I saw more of the theme in it.

increpare says ...

I enjoyed that - it was pretty easy-going, and yep - enjoyable. A nice light patch in my evening of JUDGING.

SonnyBone says ...

Yeah, this has nothing to do with islands, but everything to do with NEAT-O. Some music, sounds, and a bit more challenge would make this pretty dang rad overall.

refrag says ...

My only frustration was not knowing about "BACKSPACE" when I went for the first pellets and got stuck. ;) Very cute game! Simple premise but well executed. The puzzles challenged me progressively but were never frustrating. I had a great time playing this!

dock says ...

Very nice, and just long enough to be fun without becoming boring or frustrating. I didn't realise I could reset the level though, I ended up repeating the whole game (with f5) whenever I got stuck. The most charming game I've played so far!

shady1024 says ...

More levels please!

belbeeno says ...

Has a lot of potential as an online Flash puzzle game, but nothing to do with islands. A winner in my books, but not a winner for this LD.

Almost says ...

I found the level featured in the screenshot hardest somehow. (For getting all of the pellets) Also, backspace had not been mentioned at this time, so I got lucky when I found R.
The later puzzles looked very rushed and weren't very difficult.

Yeah, I didn't see any islands here. The title doesn't count.

The premise is cool, and I like the art style. It could definitely benefit from additional / more challenging levels.

Tom 7 says ...

Love the graphical style and execution. Top notch. The puzzles are very easy. The pellets seem to basically have no purpose, since it never benefits you to be longer. Doesn't seem to have anything to do with islands, though.

Morre says ...

Very nice game. I'd have liked to see a few more levels as well. I particularly enjoyed the visuals. Just as polished, yet clean and simple to understand, as I have come to expect your games to be.

Well done!

Sophie Houlden says ...

yay, I'm a good worm! feels a lot like a block pushing puzzle somehow, which normally I cant stand but this was pretty nifty, my only issue is it felt a bit slow moving

Hempuli says ...

You didn't really use the mechanic at it's best, but graphics are superb and the gameplay is definitely fun nonetheless!

Tozy says ...

Simple. Liked it.
In the last level, there was no door so i just went stright to the tunnel.
And... where are the islands? xD

Entar says ...

There are hardly any islands, but it's a pretty cool game anyway.

pekuja says ...

"Under" an island? Not so sure about that interpretation of the theme... The puzzles are fun though, although they do get kinda samey with big areas of apples to chomp through.
Short and sweet, I guess. I feel like there are probably a few interesting level designs that you could still squeeze out of the mechanics.

sf17k says ...

Solid. Undo is a nifty bonus feature.

Pyrrhuloxia says ...

I think there should be more levels with backtracking of some kind for a future version.

Riley Adams says ...

Cool stuff! A little lacking in islands though...

philomory says ...

A pretty good game, the puzzles make you think without being too difficult, but, pretty much ignores the theme entirely, doesn't it?
