Explore a dream-like world of ten mysterious vistas in this touchscreen classic. Equal parts puzzle game, physics toy box, and living picture-book, Windosill's animated, interactive world is meticulously constructed to reward playful investigation. Designed to be experienced in a single sitting (anywhere between 20 minutes and 2 hours), Windosill is suitable for curious children and imaginative adults alike.

Ratings and Reviews
The Original Toy Gaming App
Toy gaming (Vignettes, GNOG) is an exciting, imaginative form of app gameplay that pushes amazing creative boundaries, and Windowsill’s colorful adventure is one of the first to do it. It’s a bizarre little gem that at times requires odd solutions, but none too difficult that you give up entirely. The game is, however, way too short for its price; I completed it in 20 minutes max and I simply don’t see how it can extend for two hours. There is a neat unlockable after the game is completed, but it isn’t enough for true replay value. And the lack of even a simple soundtrack to compliment the quirky sound effects is a missed opportunity. Overall, though, the game is quite enchanting and laid the groundwork for such a fun kind of puzzle.
Still Essential After All These Years
Apps by Vectorpark are incomparable to anything else as a combination of beautiful minimalist art and interactive design. I feel inspired every time I play with one.
Now I enjoy them with my 3-year-old and their value has gone up exponentially.
It would be a shame to ruin any of the surprises by describing them here, so allow me to simply say: get this and the rest of the Vectorpark apps, touch every part of them, and you’ll be glad you did.
A True Classic
Like playing through a dream. I’ve loved this game for a long time and I have been excited to share it with my children now. They love it as well.
