Mayday! You’re shipwrecked! Help keep fellow castaways alive, befriend natives, collect trophies, explore your huge new island home, and unearth the island’s mysteries!

Being stranded on a remote island has never been so entertaining!
After a shipwreck, your main goal is survival, although getting off the island would be great too. But first you must step up and become the leader of the castaways to prevent chaos and ensure everyone’s well-being. Build a fish farm to catch eels, a quail farm to cultivate poultry and a crab farm to trap shellfish. Also, create a clay pit and a liana farm to source the building materials needed for shelters. Track down rare plants for your magic potions, and be mindful about protection while exploring the island. But it’s not just about keeping safe, dry and well-fed. To escape the island and return home, you must decipher bizarre markings on the ground, collect ancient statues, kill a crab monster and unravel this mysterious island’s dark secrets! Good luck!

Great Game, Update Please

Love this game! Gameplay is reasonably paced, ad-free, *highly* addictive, AND doesn’t include any “hidden object” or “matching game” side quests to further your progress. Even while you are waiting for items to be ready/available for one quest, you can be collecting/storing items for other quests. Unfortunately, the current levels max out at “Chapter 11: Predatory Lands,” (with the major tease of seeing “warehouses” and several other cloud enshrouded lands on the map).

The only negative feedback I have for this game is that it seems G5 has given up on updating it as of 2-3 years ago. There are many fans of this game who have left similar reviews over the last several years, and I have yet to see a response from the developers.

While it would be nice to hear news about whether we can expect an update or not, don’t let that deter you! This is definitely my favorite town-building/adventure/strategy game.

Great game with a Strong Sucker PUNCH!!!!!

The only thing I have to say, is that I have bought the 1st and 2nd titles of this game before this version came out, and I totally love this version with the only objection in which the game developers practically force you to buy gems (the internal currency of the game) because almost all the missions cannot be accomplished unless you use a gem and all task have to be finished within the allotted time or they won't count, it will be better that a great reward or acquisition of an item that can't be found on your own is obtained when completing a task is obtained but you won't get anything if you don't finish in time you could still play the game but take more steps to reach the same goal, kind of play more or pay system instead of the play more and pay, and still get nothing; more over what is the point of having storage if the tasks don't let you use your stored items in addition if doing tasks don't let you use stored items WHY do I have to get more storage to acquire them, lastly if a task can't be accomplished why do you allow it to happen and why is the last piece of all blue prints for all the upgrades can only be obtained with gems and not through playing the game? Fix this please the game has enough potential to be great but you guys at G5 are turning this great title into common day version of a communist fascist society!

Old version was great but...

I LOVED the older version where the in game stuff was completely free and the only thing you had to buy was access to the rest of the game, which was relatively cheap. I played that for ages. I went to download the game again and replay it but I was met with a nasty surprise. They incorporated gems?? What is this crap. I get they need to make money but this really, REALLY makes the game unfun and more grueling. I would’ve just rebought the access to the rest of the game, but I’m not wasting my money on Ingame currency. So far the game is still interesting in fun a bit but the gems really just throw me off and I hate the gem system, not the game. Game developers if you are reading this: Please remove the gems, but incorporate something that will be just as effective for earning money but allows the players to level up normally and actually play the game without having to pay. Of course for different chapters or to continue the game you can have a cost, but really I wouldn’t even bother buying gems if it were me, I’d play until it requires me to buy gems then I’d click the good ol’ delete because the audience target you have for this game can’t exactly buy gems whenever they need it just to expand their inventory. So thanks but no thanks. I love the game but Ah he gems. Okay enough of the rant. It is a wonderful game.
