  • Summary: Parents need to know that Nanda's Island is a challenging puzzle game in which players help a panda water flower seeds by drawing lines that will direct falling raindrops to the seedbeds. The story and imagery are cute and harmless, and there's a subtle message about caring for the environment, but the controls can be a bit tricky, especially for younger kids. Plus, the challenge level is pretty high right off the bat.

A Sinking Island

  • Excerpt: A rain making panda? Yeah, there is no way that this could be made up on the spot. Nanda's Island is a puzzle game that the players must water plants by drawing lines to force the water where the player wants it to go. This was a very strange game but there was hope for a fun game, until it started. The game made no real sense and was not very enjoyable. There were also a few issues with the game that made this a buy if you dare game.
