Pony Island

What starts out as a kiddy game, quickly turns into something all together different. If you look closely on the loading screen the pony is crying. That is your first clue that everything isn’t what it seems. Pony island is at it’s heart a puzzle platformer game. Without getting into spoilers to progress through the game you will alternate between controlling your pony and solving glitch based puzzles.
