Zynga, one of the most prolific creators of Facebook games, has released Treasure Isle, game where you dig for treasure in different places in order to decorate your own island. The game utilizes Avatars, a Mafia Wars-style energy meter, great presentation (as expected from Zynga) and some smart social features to create a fun new game that will likely rocket up the charts.
In short, Treasure Isle is about digging up treasure chests, opening them to get treasure, coins and experience points. You then level up, gain more money, and decorate your island. Your neighbors in the game can help you by giving you items you want: you create a wish list of items you like, and they send you the free gifts you need. The game is reminiscent of another game on the social gaming scene, “Treasure Madness”, but has a bunch of innovative features that set it apart.
The graphics are big and fantastic, and the overhead map that shows you all the islands that are available really makes the game feel expansive, which is a lot of fun, and adds to the sense of escape in this game. We’ll take a deeper look and full review of the game in the coming weeks, as the game goes through its first month adjustments, but so far we’re a fan. Also, have to say that the music in this game is just as relaxing as the music in Safari Kingdom. These social gaming composers are really hitting the mark.
