About this game

In the most distant reaches of the world, magic still exists, embodied by spirits of the land, of the sky, and of every natural thing. As the great powers of Europe stretch their colonial empires further and further, they will inevitably lay claim to a place where spirits still hold power - and when they do, the land itself will fight back alongside the islanders who live there.

Spirit Island is a cooperative settler-destruction strategy game designed by R. Eric Reuss and set in an alternate-history world around A.D. 1700. Players become different Spirits of the land, each with their own unique elemental powers, forced to defend their island home from colonizing Invaders spreading blight and destruction. Your Spirits work with the native Dahan to increase your power and drive the invading colonists from your island in this strategic area-control game.

Spirit Island includes:
• Free access to unlimited plays of the tutorial game
• Create custom games with up to 4 available spirits and play 5 full turns
• 36 Minor Power cards that enhance the abilities of your Spirits
• 22 Major Power cards with more powerful effects to devastate the Invaders
• A modular island, made up of 4 balanced island boards, for a variety of layouts
• Thematic island boards that reflect the canonical island and provide a new challenge
• 15 Invader cards driving a distinctive Invader expansion system
• 2 Blight cards with challenging effects as the Invaders blight the Island
• 15 Fear cards with beneficial effects, earned as you terrify the Invaders

Every rule & interaction in the game has been carefully adapted and thoroughly tested by expert Spirit Island players, as well as the designer himself. If you’re wondering how a certain situation works in Spirit Island, this game is the ultimate rules lawyer!

• Original dynamic music composed by Jean-Marc Giffin brings Spirit Island to life. Each Spirit has unique musical elements that wax and wane as the game progresses.
• 3D Textured maps bring a realistic look and isometric perspective to the Island.
• 3D Classic maps present the Island the way it looks on the tabletop.
• 2D Classic maps provide a simplified top-down option for all you number crunchers out there.

Pretty good port of the board game to digital. Love that it runs all the mechanics automatically. I do think the monthly subscription is a pretty good deal despite all the pricing complaints. Unfortunately, offline play doesn't work reliably and there's a bug that forces you to play with the expansion even when it's turned off. So unsubscribing until those are fixed. Edit -- new update seems to have resolved the previous issues and working much better now.

My favorite game ever. This is a smooth, reliable, full-featured premium app. The price to own is high but I am happy to buy once, play forever, with no ads. Lots of quality of life (e.g., auto selection when a choice is equivalent). Disclaimer: I am a super fan (bought all the DLC, bought all the physical game and expansions). Also, I have not used this app for multi-player.

I loved this game so much on steam I needed to buy it on my phone so I could play it while away from my computer! My only real gripe is the fact that it keeps track of your "win loss" ratio, which makes me feel pressured to try and win rather than have fun, but that can be fixed by just deleting and reinstalling the game to clear the data. 10/10 game, may buy the physical edition as well. (Probably just as a display item lol)

What's new

This update has a few bug fixes, including:
- Fixed a crash with using Unrelenting Growth with Keeper of the Forbidden Wilds, then using Undo in certain situations.
- Generating too much Fear after earning Terror Level "Victory" in a single action no longer causes the game to get stuck.
- Fixed a problem where Keeper of the Forbidden Wilds was not able to properly undo some of their growth in certain situations.
