There it is...the smoke bellowing from the mountain peak. It's been rumored for the last two generations. Lucky you. With a great BOOM the top of the mountain is gone and a brilliant red cloud of destruction has filled the void. There's no time to waste! Grab your Tiki, grab your four....err....three...oh no...TWO closest friends and get as far away as possible! You've heard rumor of another island, rich in abundance, on the edge of the horizon. Head to the sea and cross the ocean to find your new home.
Tiki Island is best described as a light strategy game with some...interesting elements thrown in. The goal is simple; get from one side of the ocean to the other. The only problem is that everyone else is trying to do the same, and the vast ocean is only so big.
Use your magical Tiki to build an island chain from one side of the map to the other. Try to avoid the other players, because along with the ability to build new islands, Tikis can hurl powerful runes and utilize devastating combinations to keep you from reaching your goal. Are you going to try for the tortoise or the hare approach? A complete path makes a world of difference...but then again, so does a well timed lightning bolt!
Using simple and intuitive strategy, Tiki Island was designed from the ground up to be a family experience.
