Official Dead Island Map App
By Dorling Kindersley
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The only officially licensed app for the year's most anticipated release:
** Zoom and scroll through detailed maps of the entire game
** Locate all in-game collectibles: ID Cards, Banoi Herald editions and Investigation Tapes
** Track which collectibles have been found and which await discovery
** Official music from the game
Great at what it does
Very good for allowing completists to track collectables down, and also showing you a pic of exactly where the collectables are. Which does make life easier.
The down side to this app (or should I say electronic book, as it's more or less an interactive version of a game guide book - check who the publisher is!) is that it *only* lists collectables! It doesn't show you anything else, and I think that's a bit of a missed opportunity. There's so much scope for this app, but we'll have to see if it will be fulfilled.
Overall, very good at what is does, quite slick and well presented, just about OK for £1.99, but leaves you wondering what could have been (maybe hopefully what might be)!
Great addition to an awesome game
Dead Island is huge and although it has a map in-game this app makes things even easier as you can use it at the same time as playing.
With the added bonus of showing all locations of things it's great for completionists. It's only a matter of time before other devs/publishers step onto the app market
Helps a lot!
Very detailed map with everything you need to look for especially when it's rather difficult to find certain items. Not bad for £1.99 would be better if cheaper but at the end of the day it's worth it!
