After entirely too much teasing, Treasure Isle developer Zynga has finally opened up Fire God Mountain for treasure seekers to explore. We have the full scoop on this major Treasure Isle expansion, so read on.
First off, before players can enter the volcano, they’ll need to protect themselves with SPF-3000 (ignore the fact that SPF is meant to protect against the Sun’s rays and not heat). Players can buy SPF-3000 from the shop with Island Cash, or get free SPF-3000 from their friends by requesting it. Players CAN’T freely send SPF-3000 to one another like a normal gift – the only way to receive it for free is to specifically request some from a fellow player. Only then can they send you some.
Once inside, players will have 14 floors to explore. These floors are created randomly, so players will experience something different each time they explore the volcano.
The most interesting twist is that the goal of Fire God Mountain is to discover all the treasures and make it through the entire volcano by digging as *little* as possible. Players need to watch closely for a “treasure nearby” (2 squares away) or a “treasure really close” (1 square away) message to discover the treasure on each floor in as few digs as possible. The fewer clicks a player makes to clear all 14 floors, the better the final reward!
All the treasure players collect in Fire God Mountain aren’t part of traditional treasure collections. Instead, they are actual decorations players can use on their home island. So far we have gotten Quartz, an animated fireball, and a new Glowflower plant.
The best prizes are reserved for those players that make it through the Volcano as efficiently as possible. Items up for grabs include the very very rare Rain God treasure, a new garden plot, a Lava Java that recharges your energy 10 seconds faster, and a Magman Energy that permanently your energy bar by 5.
We’ll have much more on Fire God Mountain very soon. In the meantime, leave a comment and let us know how many clicks it is taking you to reach the final floor!
