    It's not an especially long game or a challenging game by any means, but it is a fun ride.

    For those who love mini tasks, collecting missions and don't mind a more casual take on adventure games with little in the way of taxing puzzles, The Island: Castaway will happily entertain you for hours. Those gamers looking for something with a little more challenge may find this game lacking. That said, the initial game is free and it's worth visiting the island at least once.

    It tries to infuse some mystery, but in the end you run around doing errands in a quite linear experience. Still it is highly enjoyable to learn new recipes to collect for, and then cook. Finding new foodstuff, and solve the mystery of the island.

    I beat this in about five hours, so at $4.99 you're looking at about a $1 per hour in value. As a rate of return that's good (as a gut calculation I think the average console game gives you about 40 hours of content for $60), though to be honest I think I would rather take that $5 and go pay a bum to poke me in the eye for ten minutes. Save your $5 for a coffee or a deserving bum with thick fingers. These developers don't warrant the encouragement.
