Dive into the fray in the epic trailer:

In Epic Island, players venture through a diverse, richly-animated island complete with a full spectrum of brightly colored monsters. Each of your five heroes – the Dashing Male, Daring Huntress, Wise Man, Nimble Elf, and Stout Dwarf – and their unique skillsets give players the chance to create and strategically nurture a truly epic crew. Players send their heroes on timed quests to slay enemies to earn fame, experience points, and gold that can be used to improve existing weapons and armor or forge new ones. Epic Island also features the Battle Arena, an online component where players can test their team’s mettle against other players from around the world.

Epic Island is available exclusively from the iTunes App Store as a free download. Click here for the Epic Island press kit.
