Tiny Islands by David King FREE

 Tiny Islands comes from David King.  The object is to place houses, churches, forests etc onto a grid, trace out 3 islands, and optimize your points.

The scoring system is fairly straight forward. I won't go into that here.

Very Interesting: for each move, you have the option of playing 1 of 2 pieces.  

You can play the 'Daily Shuffle' game multiple times. Memorize the cards and then optimize your strategy.

Warning: this game is highly addictive.  Not for gamers who move quickly.  Take your time!

Play it online only - I think.

Steam as a puzzle platform

Hello Puzzlers,

I'm waiting for the new ipados to come out. The rumor is that it will be available on Sept 13.

At the moment, my ipad 4 is not allowing me to download new/current puzzles because it's not able to download the newest software. (I suspect Apple does this intentionally to force people to buy new ipads.)

So I'm on Steam.  The first thing I notice is that the prices for games are higher than on iOS. Why?

Another thing: are there games that are available only on Steam and not on iOS?

Most importantly: throw some puzzle recommendations in the comments section.

This game:  Movit is a total ripoff of a game called Deadlocked which I reviewed in 2011.  What I later learned is that the author of Deadlocked ripped somebody else off!
