22 Feb

Compass Engine (, a mobile game studio headquartered in Vancouver Canada, is announcing the release of their next location based game, Bounty Island ( Bounty Island is available for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch and uses the player’s location in the real world to generate tropical islands for them to discover and explore.

As the location space continues to heat up, Bounty Island stands apart from other offerings by putting the GAME in location based games. The check in mechanic has always been a great starting point for location services but has never been incorporated into a truly fun game. With Bounty Island players check in to a venue and are given a tropical map unique to that location where they can explore, dig for exotic treasures and try to discover the secret of mysterious Bounty Island.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to get this game out to market and show the world that location doesn’t just have to be about coupons and deals but can simply be fun. Bounty Island is going to prove that location can be used to personalize a game, and we all know that the more personal the game the more engaging it is,” said Compass Engine CEO Mack Flavelle.

Bounty Island is available in the Apple App Store worldwide. (
