      Pony Island can be a fun horse breeding game if you don’t expect too much. I’ve been playing this game for over 3 years and have watched as more and more players become disgruntled with the lack of updates, horrible customer service, and changes to game play.

      The pluses to the game include creating and breeding wildly colored ponies.

      It


      can be a great deal of fun to play with children that are beginning to grasp the concepts of trait inheritance.

      It can also be a good teaching tool for budgeting as each player receives a daily allowance that will need to be saved to ‘buy’ in game items.

      There is a fairly active user forum where you can meet other ...


      • players; most people are pretty nice.

        The negatives to the game include distant admins who don’t seem to do much to keep the game running.

        Lag and timeouts are common problems that the one staff coder seems unwilling or unable to fix.

        There are coding issues that negatively effect game play that have never been resolved.

        The forums are

        not well moderated, largely due to the fact that there are a very small amount of active mods, and numerous examples of mod and admin bias.

        The mods are not given the tools they need to effectively do their jobs.

        For $24 a year I expect more updates and additions to game play, as well as quality customer service.

        Right now PonyIsland just doesn’t have it.

    Has changed core "policies" and game play so many times I can’t count. Do not invest money into this site - they do not show any type of loyalty or respect to players who have stuck around through the hurdles. In fact, they spit in your face. MODs determine game play. Not admin. They pick favorites, there’s one particular user, JWard, who is particularly two-faced, and is on PIE (A celebration team). She’s asked like 20 players not to contact her for BOGUS reasons, and due to PI rules, these players can not even participate in events on a site they are PAYING to participate on. It’s the most insane thing ever. When you first discover this site you’ll be ooooo this is awesome, but slowly and surely, you’ll find out how corrupt and censored you are. However, may be good for 10-12 year olds to play on. Safe environment if you don’t put much stock into serious game play/character building. Do not comment anything on discussion boards ever.
