Forbidden Island iPad App Update!

For those who don’t already know, Forbidden Island, our best-selling cooperative family adventure game by designer Matt Leacock, is now available for the iPad. The iOS version was created by  talented independent developers,  Button Mash Games, and keeps the feeling and tension of the original game, all in a digital format. The digital version features co-operative game play for 2-4 players, single player gameplay, multiple board layouts, unlimited saved games, beautiful artwork and an interactive tutorial.

We just released version 1.1 today, making it the first major update since its launch last November. Among the major improvements is the ability to unlock additional island configurations. See below for new features and improvements to this five-star rated app
