Treasure Isle Updates: Island Cash on Sale, Expand Your Home Island, Purchase Another Garden and Adopt a Lost Peacock

Social, Treasure Isle

Zynga has been hard at work updating Treasure Isle this week, as there are not one, not two, not even three, but four new updates to talk about. The first sees you saving on Island Cash bundles, while the second and third are updates to your Home Island. Finally, we end our look at Treasure Isle’s new features with the lost Peacock.

Island Cash is 30% Off for a Limited Time

If you’ve been waiting for a good reason to purchase Island Cash in Treasure Isle, how does a 30% off sale sound? It is enough to convince you to spend some real money on Zynga’s virtual currency? Let’s take a look at exactly what this sale means.

For a limited time, you can purchase any of the five Island Cash bundles for 30% off. For the smallest bundle – 25 Island Cash – you would normally pay $5 (all amounts are in US dollars), but will now only have to pay $3.50. While that doesn’t seem like that large of a discount, when we look at the largest bundle, offering 310 Island Cash, we can see that while it normally costs $50, it is now priced at $35, a savings of $15 – nothing to scoff at.

What do you do with your extra $15? Well, Zynga would probably want you to use it on more Island Cash, as you can pick up another 115 for, still, less than that amount.

Expand Your Home Island to Large or Even Grand Size

If you Home Island is feeling a bit cramped, there are two new expansions for you to purchase via the game’s store.

The Large Island costs 65,000 coins, or 30 Island Cash, while the Grand Island is larger, at 80,000 coins or 35 Island Cash.

These expansions will likely be permanently available in the game’s store, so don’t feel the need to rush to earn the required coins to purchase them.

Add a Third Garden Plot to Your Home Island

If you want to add a third garden plot to your Home Island, you can now do so via the game’s store; specifically the Energy tab. There, you’ll see the Garden Plot available to purchase for… brace yourself… 100 Island Cash.

It’s a high price to pay, to be sure, but when it allows you to grow more fruit, which in turn allows you to keep digging for longer spans of time, it, in theory, will end up paying for itself, as that extra energy helps you to find new coins and treasures.

Won’t You Help the Poor Lost Peacock?

As you play the game, you may come across a pop-up for a new lost animal in the game, in the form a pretty Peacock. You’ll be able to post your discovery to you wall in the form of a news item that your friends can click on to adopt the Peacock themselves.

To be clear, this discovery only allows one of your neighbors to have a Peacock on their Home Island – you don’t get to keep it for yourself. To have your own Peacock, you’ll need to find a similar post on your news feed from where a friend has found and posted one on their own wall.

All of these updates are now live in-game. Make sure to head over to the game’s page on Facebook to see them in action.
