Galapago - quest to the desert islandGalapago - Brainteasing Quest to the Desert Island

 

While playing Galapago you will travel to the deserted island, visit its beach and active volcano. The places are swarming with crabs, frogs, bugs, butterflies and other insects. Your playing field is pestered with them and your task is to ‘match' and delete them from playing field.

 

The playing field is split into cells, each cell has a ‘dweller' inside. It's not difficult to match them: you have to simply swap two adjacent insects to make a line of three or more objects of a kind.

 

You can swap insects only in horizontal and vertical lines.

  

Make a horizontal or vertical line of 3 objects of a kind

Some cells can be blocked (they differ in color) and you have to ‘unblock' them. To do it, include the blocked cell into a line of objects of a kind.

 

Some cells are filled with crystals. To get the crystal, you have to ‘explode' adjacent bugs of the same color.  

 

When the level is completed  - be sure to quickly click on the insects trying to run away from the field. All the insects you caught will be added to your collection scoring you extra points.

 

By the way, you'll have three trophy rooms - each of them is for trophies from one of three places you are to visit.

 

In some cells you will find bombs - if they happen to be among things you are trying to match, they'll blow up everything around them. Sometimes it's not bad at all!  

Play with your mouse. Aim an arrow at the cell and left mouse click on it. Then click on another cell and their ‘dwellers' will be swapped.

 

Match 3 objects of a kindOf course, there are three buttons in the left corner of your board. They'll help you during your quest.

 

With one button you can swap two objects on your playing field, no matter how far they are situated from each other - just  click on them and that's it. The second button ‘blows up' any object that you mark with your mouse. With the third button you can ‘shuffle' all the objects on you playing field.

Also, I think I detected some nods to H.P. Lovecraft and Quest for Glory IV?Absolutely!The fact there was a “Talk” btoutn during conversations was nice from an aesthetic point of view since it complemented the “Bye” btoutn, but having to click “Talk” every time I wanted to say something instead of simply clicking the conversation topic felt a bit unintuitive.A lot of people have mentioned that, but I feel that it gives a sense of security it prevents you from accidentally clicking on a dialogue option and advancing the plot when you didn't want to.Also, the way items are used in the game seemed too easy.That was a choice related to the medium (Flash). I enjoy the simplicity of it myself, but I certainly wouldn't want all games to be this simple.So, bravo! I say, well done. You have made something beautiful. I’m not sure how many people will buy your Lands of Dream commercial game, but here at least is one guaranteed sale on day one.Yay!
