Hit the Island – Entertaining “Dynamic Island” game also for older iPhones

Lately I already have you 40+ native Dynamic Island functions shown on the iPhone 14 Pro (Max). But developers can easily make hundreds of them. For example, the Dynamic Island, just like the notch previously used since the iPhone X, can be used for gaming. The full screen hit the island for example, is a kind of pong for the iPhone display, which uses the camera and Face ID slots on the iPhone as game content. Sound effects and haptic feedback can be individually (de)activated. The free version of the app contains a bit of advertising (see below).

Abbreviation: Click here for the game in the App Store

Hit the Island for iPhone models with Notch and Dynamic Island

A ball that whizzes across the display and – depending on how it hits the notch or the dynamic island – triggers different effects. This is how you can describe the game "Hit the Island" by Funn Media in a nutshell. Over time, the ball will speed up, and sometimes it'll be cloned too, causing two of them to bounce around. 

Here are a few impressions of use on the iPhone 12 Pro with notch. This is animated at its edges and is used just as well as the Dynamic Island in "Hit the Island".

Then the control over the movable island in the lower part of the display becomes more difficult. This also applies if this island gets smaller and smaller as the game progresses. The high scores achieved can be shared via the Apple Game Center. I would put the game in the "Easy to learn, hard to master" category because it's not as easy as it looks.

Free use, ad-free for a one-off fee of €1,99

The game is over iOS 16 usable. Download, installation and use are free on the iPhone, if you can get used to the small advertising banners in the game's menu area. No ads will be displayed during the game. However, if you want to swipe up the app in the menu to exit it or access other content, it is quite possible that you accidentally tap on the advertisement. 

If you use the app as a free download from the App Store, you will find advertising in the menu next to settings and sharing the high score.

If you want to avoid this and continue to use the game anyway, you can make a one-time in-app purchase for 1,99 euros so that there are no further advertisements. Well, the development effort has to be financed somehow. What do you say about the game? Fun pastime or just a demonstration of how Notch and Dynamic Island can be used?
