App description: Introducing "Stoneship: The Curse of a Thousand Islands" - an entirely new iOS game from the company that brought you Myst and Riven.

Arrrgh! Pack Your Flintlock!

So you think you want to sail the seven seas? How about helping patrol the Thousand Islands! There are a lot of oceans out there with countless islands - and boatloads of pirates and sea monsters who would like to steal treasure and shiver your timbers.

Your brilliance, and your ability to amass a loyal crew are the only thing standing in their way.

So avast the vastness - man the cannons - and set sail to restore peace and order to the high seas.

Stoneship is a lighthearted new direction for Cyan Worlds. Explore, control, and protect vast oceans and islands - starting with the initial eighty three levels of pirate-cursed real estate. Stoneship brings a casual, top-down, turn-based, strategy, puzzle game, with a bent toward the whimsical, to the palm of your hand.

Set sail now, because we'll be releasing free updates with new campaign levels, more monsters, helpful first mates, and devious new challenges. Try to keep up!

Am I the only one that thought this looked a little boring? I like strategy games as much as the next, but where's the "flair"?!

Ya, but was too scared to post about it.

Also, I would consider if it was 2 bucks cheaper.

Game Impressions

So, I purchased it, and I have played for 10 minutes, and I think its going to be pretty good. Its very much like Defense of the Oasis.

You have a map that you have to explore, cities that you have to link up, and pirates and sea monsters that you have to fight off. Each round has 50 turns for you to do these things before the pirates attack. Graphics and sounds are both very good. Somewhat cartoony, but appropriate to the game.

There are a large number of levels included, and it seems like there are more to come.

I like it. I think its worth the $3, but if you are one of those cheapskates that think every game should only be $1, then this one is going to be about $2 too much for you.

+1

Has anyone heard? Because I think this would play better with a bigger screen. Is anyone playing it on their iPad? If so, how does it look?

Thanks!
