Ahoy there, castaways:
Were you curious about our own thoughts regarding this pristine shipwreck? Check out our Castaway Paradise review!
Castaway Paradise is out for iOS, finally giving mobile gamers the opportunity to enjoy the idyllic lifestyle of an Animal Crossing-like game. Though it may seem straightforward, these tips will go a long way towards making your life a little easier.
Plant yourself some trees and get watering – The more trees you have, the more fruit you are producing, which means more money when you take in your harvest and sell it. Economy 101, son!
Keep planting crops – Before you sell your fruit, make sure you plant it so you can just keep a steady supply going. Don’t be hasty, as it will come back to haunt you when you find your money supplies dwindling.
Shake those trees – Shaking trees can dislodge surprises, such as a dropped fruit from the same type of tree. You can plant said fruit in turn, but you’ll want to pocket most of what you can shake down. Every little bit counts!
Become a bug catcher – Every so often, you’ll find bugs around the island simply begging you to nab them. Wait until you see the net icon, and then tap it to bag the bug. You’ll need to be sneaky about how you approach them, because if you’re too slow they’ll get away. Focus on coming up behind them slowly and you’ll be good to go.

Calling All Dragon Riders:
Want to know what we liked (and didn’t like) about all this fantasy fighting? Check out our Mark of the Dragon review!
Mark of the Dragon from Gamevil is a strategy/battle game that plays similarly to Clash of Clans. There’s one twist, however: you can breed dragons and raise them to be rideable war machines. Not surprisingly, this small gameplay tweak is pretty cool.
But fighting isn’t easy – even when you’re commanding things from the back of a giant lizard. Here are some tips and tricks to help you succeed in the dragon war.
Keep the Home Base Safe and Stocked
Guard your eggs – Dragon eggs are arguably your most valuable resource in Mark of the Dragon. They take time and effort to breed and hatch, and the resulting offspring forms the backbone of your assault force. Other players can steal eggs during a raid, so defend them accordingly. Build walls around your nest, and put weapons nearby.
Upgrade your resource depots ASAP – Upgrading the most important structures in your base, like your headquarters, requires a lot of resources – more than you can hold when you first begin playing the game. It’s extremely important to upgrade your resource depots whenever possible so you can amass the iron and wood necessary for major building projects.
Raids provide tons of resources – Low on wood or iron? Mark of the Dragon’s single-player campaign provides opportunities to score tons of resources. Get out there!

Would you like to know what we thought of being an infinite golfer? Check out our Golfinity review!
Golfinity offers unlimited ways to test your skills at golf. Here are a few ways to make sure your score doesn’t get too high and your spirits don’t get too low.
Considering Perspective is Crucial
Yes, Golfinity is most easily compared to Desert Golfing, but did you know the devs from NimbleBit have described the game as Desert Golfing meets Monument Valley? That being said, occasionally the game will present some differences in depth that seem deliberately confusing. When in doubt about these changes, play it safe, be prepared to get a bad score, or get ready to retry.
On the flipside, there will be times when a level presents no depth changes or holes. This is typically toward the beginning of the game. When presented with courses like these, don’t fear the power of your stroke. Hitting the ball super-hard generally won’t knock it out of bounds, and it might be just what you need to ricochet right past some annoying obstacles.
Always look carefully at the course your dealing with. Golfinity makes it really easy to just jump into the next level swinging, but don’t be overly tempted to do so. Courses can be tricky, and making sure you tap the lower left corner of the screen to get a good look at the whole course can save you from some poor initial strokes.
