Power-up Players for today’s progress post on the mobile game Sky Islands! If you didn’t read my initial game review of Sky Islands you can do so by clicking here! Since I have more space on my phone, I was able to redownload the Sky Island Game and pick up where I left off. This time the game has become a bit addicting and here’s why!
Garden – Gardening is one of the best ways to make money in Sky Islands. In your garden you are able to plant fruit and breed animals to help out with your villas. The fruit collected can be used in a few ways:
- Make and Serve dishes to your villa customers for extra cash
- Upgrade the furniture in your villa
- Convert fruit into dyes that can be used in clothing or traded in on Clan Orders
Clans – My friend Xsanie (also the person who made me download the game in the first place) created a clan called Fairy Tail (yes, after the anime). Xsanie was upset that she couldn’t find active members so she persuaded me to redownload the game and join her clan. In a clan you can help out by donating to the clan, participating in boss hunts (only available at hunting skill level 3 or higher), Clan Serves and Clan Orders. Every activity you perform with the clan contributes to the clan’s reputation and rewards.
Boss Hunt – the Boss Hunt is where you go “Hunting” against other clans to defeat a giant creature with a binky in their mouth lol. You have to be Hunting Skill Level 3 or higher to participate in the boss hunts. Your goal is to deal more damage than the other clans. If your clan is top 10, you receive a bonus reward, if you are top 100 individually for the amount of damage dealt, you receive a bonus reward.
Fishing – Fishing was an aspect of the review that I did not touch on too much. This is because I didn’t understand how to fish, now I do! You have a magnet on your screen with a small radius. When the beast appears, you tap the screen to move the magnet over the the beast. Any time the beast is outside of the magnet your progress will decrease. If the progress bar gets too low, you will lose the beast. Your goal is to build that progress bar up until it is green and you have captured your prey.
Events – We have just finished the Halloween Event where performing your daily tasks, quests or any activity on Sky Island would provide you with Halloween Themed Items. You would stock up on these items and visit the Community Park to turn them in for special chests. These chests provided special Halloween Decor, costumes and accessories. I anticipate there will be more Holiday events around the corner.
Things to Try:
- The mobile game has also integrated Pets into the game. I have yet to purchase a pet and raise it, but I will try it out soon.
- There are contests like the Fashionista Contest where the best dressed avatar with the most votes will receive a statue in the community park for a week, I believe.
Final Thoughts: This second go round of Sky Island has been really fun and I can see myself playing the game for at least a few more months. I check on my fruits and set rent on my villas to 3 hours at a time when I’m working. This way by my break time I can quickly collect my items and set another timer. The inclusion of a Clan mode is really awesome because now I’m working towards something. We want our clan to be one of the best and most renowned so I work extra hard at clan tasks. The social element of Sky Islands is really cool. Xsanie and I are members of the Sky Island Facebook Group and we have regular players that we talk.
