Reception[edit]

"Compared to similar adventures, The Island is dull stuff with nothing out of the ordinary to recommend it.". Sinclair User[2]

"It seems unlikely that any Spectrum owner will find it fun for more than a few minutes to play this repetitive, text-only adventure, which is filled with the programmer's inane humour". Sinclair Programs[3]
