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.

Become self-sufficient

  • 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.

Keep your island clean and profitable

  • Complete quests for puzzle pieces - If you want to explore more of the island, you'll need puzzle pieces, and the only way to get those is to do quests for the island's inhabitants. It may not be fun to work for the man, but the payoff means more beauty to explore.
  • It pays to be green - You'll come across trash as you wander the sandy beaches of your new home, and it should be dealt with. Haul those worn tires and busted TVs into town and sell them for a little profit. Cash in your pocket and a clean island is a perfect combo.
  • Keep an eye on the trees - If you want them to keep producing fruit, which you can sell or use to plant more trees, they've gotta stay hydrated. Keep an eye out for a water drop icon near trees. If that shows up, it's time to break out the watering can.

Master the skill of time management

  • Learn the lay of the land - Time is money, fair castaway, and you can save a lot of both by learning the island as soon as you wash ashore. Don't blow precious minutes wandering around when you should be making bank! Make yourself a mental map and use all that spare time to swim around in your cash like Scrooge McDuck.
  • Come back every day for new surprises - You're awarded something new every time you log in. Even if you don't have much time to hang around, simply logging in will net you cash, or even fruit that you can plant and reap the rewards from later.

There you have it! Deceptively simple and yet extremely effective, these tips will have you running your little slice of paradise in no time!
