Conclusion:
Forbidden Island is a high quality adaptation of a very popular cooperative board game. The app does well at capturing the thematic essence of the game and even increasing it. The interface is intuitive and really nice to use, though it may require a little learning for some players. It would be great to see a high score system in the future to increase the replayability solo. The game is great to play pass and play with family or using airplay. It knows its audience and is made for them.

Rating: 4/4 One of the Best
