[Full Press Release available after the break]

G5 Brings The Island: Castaway to Android

Discover the mystery of the strange island, and help survivors get back home in this casual survival simulator.

San Francisco, California – April 19, 2012 – Lounging on an empty beach floored by soft, white sand to find only your own footprints trailing behind you: sounds like a dream vacation ... unless you're stuck on an uncharted island in the middle of nowhere and must find a way to survive. The Island: Castaway, the latest action-adventure from G5 Games throws you in the middle of an unknown and mysterious island after an ocean liner sinks in a storm. Owners of Android devices today will finally be able to experience this gripping adventure for themselves. The Island: Castaway for Kindle Fire is coming soon too. In the game you will play as Tom Allison, one of the survivors of the crash and the leader of the few to escape the wreckage. Your task will be to help Tom guide the group through the challenges and hopefully to get them home.

Developed originally for PC by Awem Studio, The Island: Castaway has hit all casual game charts and engaged players as well as game critics with its unusual storyline and adventurous gameplay. Unlike many other simulation games, The Island: Castaway is much more than a sim which involves guiding and caring about the people who got trapped on the island. The adventure features over 200 quests and intriguing and mysterious storyline that will enthrall you from the start. You will begin with simple tasks such as starting a fire and putting up a tent. Then you will learn to fish, catch crabs, hunt and craft weapons on advanced levels of the game. You will also learn to work with and survive among the natives of this wild land and finally uncover a great mystery that lies buried deep in the history of the place.

You will have many tasks and quests to complete for your band of survivors and the tribesmen, including finding food and spices, catching crabs and snakes or hunt boars. You will cover a lot of ground, so you'll need to watch your hero's energy level and ensure he gets plenty of fuel. You will learn to cook various foods and special potion so that you can complete several tasks or else face death.

During the game you will get a chance to collect 15 different trophies. Each can be upgraded from bronze to silver and to gold, giving you a total 45 trophies to earn. Moreover, the island hides twelve statues. Finding all of them is crucial for completing the game. Along with its first-rate artwork and intriguing plot, the polished game has any tasks waiting for you.

Mobile is here to stay!


With the likes of iOS, Android, and Windows Phone the landscape of mobile computing has changed forever. Right along with this new world we live in the gaming world on the small front is drastically changing. No longer do we live in a gaming world of only $30 plus physical releases. It's all about the app store and so shall it be for a long time from here on out. 

I've been aware of Youtube star and former Rocketboom Host memeMolly for quite a while. Is she a gamer? As an example; I'd gather that she isn't quite what you or I would call "a gamer" yet the above video demonstrates to a tee what the mobile gaming landscape has become. And sure, the likes of the PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS will still exist, competition from titles like Game Dev Story and all of its brethren at a fraction of the price of a tradition mobile title tells the 'story'. Would Molly be making a video like the one up top if there were no App Store? There's a ride out there and it's taking us along for the adventure whether we like it or not.
