Good idea, poorly executed
on 15 February 2013
This app does not live up to its description. The idea was good, the execution, by the developers, awful. The island has 5 characters - the conversation with them is minimal; they have ONE animation (which is poor) each and there is little to do each 'day' in the game. The training of the dolphins is quite nice but very simple and you can train both of them through all the available tricks in half an hour! Taking the boat out to sea is also nice - for the first couple of occasions - then it becomes, like the rest of the game, repetitive and boring.
Worse still, after plodding on and hoping to see the 'pirate' story part, the game came to a grinding halt on my Kindle Fire HD. The dolphins stopped coming out with the boat even though the game kept telling me that they should appear. There is NO help file and trying to get help from the developers very difficult. I explained what happened in my game and when they DID finally reply to my third email after tracking them down on the web (not an easy job either), their reply was completely useless. I wrote back again and have had no reply at ALL. So the game is now stuck and I can make no progress.
I cannot recommend that anyone buys this game until the developers do a lot more work on it - as it stands it looks like a good idea that was completely wasted in poor programming.
