Press Reviews

Irish Independent

Four Stars **** "Simteractive freshens a well-worn idea with flashes of humour and lovingly illustrated visuals. From the guest vignettes (eg, planning a wedding, protecting butterflies) to the wacky demands (the hipsters who require a Beard Artistry Centre), Eden Isle doesn't take itself too seriously."

“I’ve really enjoyed playing Eden Isle. I was a fan before I downloaded the app because of the ‘resort package’ we received. It was a really nice touch and a great idea to accompany something like that. The game places really easily and it’s very addictive. I found myself tangled in its web and didn’t realize how much time had passed. I can recommend it based on its creative storyline and lovely artwork.”

“Go and play it, it’s worth it. It really is fun”.


“Eden Isle is definitely a resort paradise, and you'll enjoy your time building and exploring the island.”
