Close your eyes. Imagine a marvellous lush island before you ripe for exploration. Now, when you open your eyes again, you might find that your island in Poly Island is a bit empty… but that won’t be for long. Complete relaxing puzzles with polygons and this island will blossom into the majestic paradise you just imagined.
Navigating this game is simple and intuitive. Start by sliding the geometric pieces at the bottom of the screen to the outlines at the top. While you match the polygon figures with the numbers, a soothing soundtrack accompanies you. Piece by piece, you’ll start to feel like you’re building a 3D object. But don’t be fooled: it’s all 2D, yet the colour contrast and shadows of the low-poly artworks make the images seem life-like, as though they’re popping out from the screen.
The finished puzzles, from dolphins about to jump from the sea to toucans with colourful wings, will then inhabit your island and bring life to the blissful scenery. You can have forests, zoos or even an underwater paradise. And the deserted island you started with soon becomes a place you’d happily escape to in an instant.
Experiencing Poly Island is so joyfully calming that you might be unenthused about returning to reality. But remember: your creation is going nowhere. Whenever you want to close your eyes and cast away to your zen place, Poly Island will be waiting for you.
