Dead Island Gets an iPad/iPhone App

on September 4, 2011 3:00 PM

Strategy Guide maker BradyGames is moving into the 21st century and attempting to reach gamers in a new medium by offering an interactive map app for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.  The app will display all collectables and their locations, allow users to track their objectives and contains maps of every explorable area of the island.  All in all, it actually seems like a pretty cool app.  However, it will cost $2.99 on the iTunes App Store and comes out on Sept. 6th.  This is still noticeably cheaper than whatever a real strategy guide will cost, assuming that strategy guides are your deal.  So if you want all the collectables and don’t feel like waiting for someone on GameFAQs.com to create a PDF map with everything, or feel like paying what is essentially a $3 convenience fee for your time with Dead Island, than this app is all for you.
