Treasure Isle Voyages Introduced

Treasure Isle developer Zynga introduced a new constructible Dragonboat a while back, with the promise that once it was built, players could use it to go on voyages. Today, the feature has officially launched!

Players can access the voyages screen by clicking on their Dragonboat. Voyages are unlocked by adding crew members, which can be done by paying Island Cash, or recruiting friends for free.

Once a player embarks on a journey, every step they take will consume 15 energy. Several random events take place along the way, some bad (Ninja attacks!), and some good (free food!). Eventually, players will complete their journey, unlocking a new treasure digging stage in the process.

So far, there are three voyages: Ninja Assassin, Happy Land, and Monster Island. Mastering all three unlocks a total of six new treasure digging maps.

Treasure Isle Finally Adds Storage Solution

Treasure Isle developer Zynga has finally introduced a long-awaited Home Island storage solution! All players now have the opportunity to store five items free of charge, with the premium option to expand the storage capacity.

The storage comes in the form of a giant floating turtle with a coral-encrusted safe on his back, and is entitled Davy Jones’ Locker. Cute!

Players can pay 20 Island Cash to expand the storage space by five as many times as they like. Players can also enlist the help of their friends to increase the storage space for free.

Treasure Isle Releases ‘Secret Japan’ Maps

Treasure Isle developer Zynga has added a new batch of Asian Isles maps, entitled Secret Japan. Players now have seven more islands to explore and seek treasure on, but only if they have the cash to purchase them.

The new maps are: The Old Road, The Outpost, Forest Creatures, Mini Metro, Tiny Village, Samurai VS Ninja, and Snowbound. Three of the new maps must be purchased with Island Cash, and two must be purchased for coins. This leaves just two maps available free of charge.

Treasure Isle Introduces Whales

Treasure Isle developer Zynga has introduced another premium home island decoration: whales! As players probably have guessed, these whales are quite large, and can only be placed in the water surrounding a player’s home island – not on the land itself. They are only being sold for Island Cash, and permanently boost a player’s maximum energy when purchased.

The Cake Whale, Bowhead Whale, and Sperm Whale are all for sale for 40 Island Cash, and provide +1 to a player’s max energy. The Fail Whale (named and styled after Twitter’s fail whale) is for sale for 55 Island Cash, and provides +2 to a player’s max energy. All of these whales are available for six more days.

Treasure Isle Introduces Treasure Collection Mastery

Treasure Isle developer Zynga has released a much-needed revamp to the game’s treasure collection interface. Treasure collections are now sorted into seven categories: Tiki, Mayan, Pirate, Volcano, Monkey, Asia, and Special. There are also now four collections shown per page. Finally, it is now easy to see at a glance which collections have been completed, and which haven’t.

Perhaps the most intriguing change is that treasure collections now have four mastery levels. Every time a player turns in a complete collection, that collection’s mastery level increases by 1. So far there doesn’t seem to be any reward for achieving a treasure collection’s maximum mastery level after vaulting it four times, but we wouldn’t be surprised if players earned exclusive rewards or other bonuses for fully mastered treasure collections down the road.

Treasure Isle Releases First Asian Maps

Treasure Isle developer Zynga has released the first in what is sure to be a large collection of Asian themed maps, entitled Rising Sun Run.

There are seven new maps in total: Fuji Isle, Snowy Glade, Sacred Shrine, Sushi Shack, Peaceful Monastery, The Master Artist, and Tanuki Forest. Four are free, while three must be purchased with Island Cash. Sacred Shrine is only available to players level 150 or higher.

The maps are filled with new Asian themed treasure collections, including bonsai trees and a suit of samurai armor.

Treasure Isle Releases Volcano Isles Maps

Treasure Isle developer Zynga released a new set of maps this week: Volcano Isles. The seven map set uses the same tiles and design as the Fire God Mountain volcano, but they play like traditional Treasure Isle stages, with set designs instead of randomized layouts.

The new maps are: Burning Phoenix, Jeweled Palace, Fairy Castle, Wrong Turn!, Old Gem Mine, Phoenix Roost, and Imp Fort. Three of the seven maps must be purchased with Island cash, and the remaining four are free.

Instead of containing gem gates, players must instead pay Phoenix Feathers to progress past locked gates. These feathers can be collected inside Fire God Mountain, similar to the Monkey Wrenches that can be collected inside Monkey Palace.

Treasure Isle Introduces Storage Balloons

Treasure Isle developer Zynga introduced a whimsical collection of hot air balloons over the weekend. Besides adding a bit of style and panache to a player’s home island, these balloons also double as storage, providing players with +10 additional backpack space.

The new balloon styles are: Starry, Rainbow, Pink & Blue, Kittens, Checker, Strawberry, Steampunk, & Anvil. They are all limited editions and will only be available for four more days, and are all for sale for 40 Island Cash.

Treasure Isle Gem Mine Coming Soon

Treasure Isle developer Zynga began teasing a new Gem Mine feature, this week. Details are scarce – all we know for certain is that players will be able to receive one gem of any color once every 24 hours. Nice!

No word yet on how the Gem Mine is obtained, but given that a big portion of Treasure Isle revolves around the gem gates, we’re assuming it won’t be easy. It could be a premium item only available for Island Cash, or perhaps it will be a structure that can only be built with the help of a player’s Treasure Isle neighbors.

All we know for certain is that we want one. Orange and Blue gems are just way too rare!

Treasure Isle Adds Relics & Revamps Store

Treasure Isle developer Zynga released a new Relics system today, and also gave the in-game store a much needed redesign. A handful of new limited edition home island decorations have also been released.

All Treasure Isle players have been given the base of a new Tiki Relic to kick off the Relics system. After placing the (quite large!) base on their Home Island, players can click on it to see what items are needed to finish construction. In the case of the Tiki Relic, players will need one each of: Dye, Glue, Fire, Metal, and Oil. These items can be purchased for 1 Island Cash each, or players can make a Facebook wall post requesting one.

The best way to get these new materials is probably through digging, however. As players dig up maps, they will find the necessary relic materials through normal play.

Treasure Isle’s in-game store was also revamped this week. There are now seven major store categories running down the lefthand side, with subcategories running along the top. With more and more decorations and upgrades added every week, this should help treasure seekers better find the specific item they are looking for.

Finally, a collection of limited edition premium mini-islands have been released. These islands can be placed in the water surrounding a player’s home island. Each is for sale for 60 Island Cash and is only available for the next 7 days. In addition to allowing players to begin building a modest island chain, they also boost a player’s total max energy by +3. The new land masses are: Monkey Point, Pelican Cove, Sinking Beach, Lighthouse Bay, and Squid Island.
