    Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the App Store - an entirely new iOS game from the company that brought you Myst.

    Introducing "Stoneship: The Curse of a Thousand Islands"

    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.

    You 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!

    While not as elegant or thought provoking as an adventure title, Stoneship goes for a more appealing quick puzzle style that's fun and easy to jump in to.

    Stoneship makes a wonderfully light distraction. It's the kind of game you plan to play for five minutes then realise an hour has passed already.

    Cyan Worlds did a great job with this casual made-for-iPhone board game despite leaving out multiplayer.

    Stoneship is an intriguing mix of memory gaming, high seas exploration and strategic planning, but its regularly frustrating nature and lack of replay value take the wind out of its sails.

    Stoneship can be recommended if you are looking for a light-hearted, polished strategy game that can be quite fun.
