Paradise Island Android Game App: Resort Empire

Under: Android OS Apps
Date: April 28th, 2011

Most people can only dream of owning their own sunny island and building a resort empire on it, but that dream can now become reality with the ‘Paradise Island’ Android app.

The Paradise Island app is a great simulation game, whereby you can build your own Entertainment resort, including hotels, casinos, restaurants, discos and entertainment centres to entice wealthy tourists, and learn how to manage your own business all on your Android enabled smartphone.

The aim of the game is to build your ideal Island with all kinds of unique buildings and plants, and set up your own tourism business. You gain profit by improving your buildings by repairing them and can expand by buying new pieces of land and sea. This app also enables you to compete with your friends, with the ultimate goal being to receive all possible rewards and winning the Grand Prize!

The graphics for this game are detailed and beautiful, which make the gameplay very interesting and extremely addictive, and even when the game is closed on your handset, life on the island still goes on. Features also include a big choice of facilities and constructions, plants and decorations, simcity and tycoon features, over 130 awards and achievements. An internet connection is recommended, but not a must requirement and it comes Ad free.

So why not head on over to Android Market and download this free app, and enjoy hours of fun in the sun. If you manage to tear yourself away from the game for a minute or two, why not leave us your comments on the game below.

    Great game but it takes a lot of time to do something. It wish there was a fast forward button.

    • Charlotte

      Change the time and date on ur phone.. and u will gain money.. :)

      • swtdckwilly

        lmao. nice. make sure you actually exit the game before you start messing with the time cause they warn you if you change the date back w/o exiting.

  • Josh

    Great Game.

    I'm soooo addicted. Building it is fun. I reccomend starting out with a lot of hot dog stands and upgrading them as fast as possible and then moving to cabins, to get quick, big money, and then upgrading to hotels, etc.

  • Jamie

    I've been playing for days on end now! I love it :) since downloading it I have to charge my phone twice a day because I play it so much, I so wish I could find it for computer to save phone battery power :D

  • lyra

    i just bought another region, how do i knock down the fence so i can start building? or what does buying a region even do?

    • sophie

      Im having same problem.I can not figure it out.

      • adam

        Same thing here

        • L-Boogie

          You have to buy all the regions in that particular direction before the fence gets knocked down.

    • Steph

      When you buy a region it gives you a very small area either to the left right or bottom

  • John

    Or just move a cactus back and forth while your stores are making money. Also build and delete roads. You can make a lot of money quickly. I just started, and I am up to level 8 with 3 cabins, 2 icecream shops, 2 gift shops, and 2 bed and breakfasts. I also have 2 wind generators. I am at $175268 for money right now and 6840 xp.

  • ajd

    Start with 15 hotdog stands, upgrade all. Build ice cream stands, but don't upgrade. They're just a stepping stone to bed & breakfast. Build like 20. Then hotels. While you're waiting for all this to happen do the relocation awards. Use a windmill as the facility to move (they don't require certain spacing and its a LOT faster) then build better hotels until you have the best. Rule of thumb, quantity over quality. Also do the pathway rewards paths don't cost to buy and demolish. DO NOT UPGRADE ANYTHING EXCEPT HOTDOG STANDS UNTIL YOURE SWIMMING IN CASH. IT WILL MAKE THE PROCESS FASTER. And don't buy land unless you run out. Focus on maximizing profits and you can do w.e. you want faster!!!

  • Annie

    Is there anyone who know how to accomplish "QUICK" mission?
    It says it would be got if I do sth 5 times in a moment.
    What does it mean??

    • BigD1980

      It means you can skip the building process and construct it instantly. If you tap on something on your island which is being built a box pops up and it gives you the choice of building something faster or in a moment. Good luck.

    • Charlotte

      U have to earn piastres and then use them for making ur contructions immediatly finished. when u improve ur buildings or fix them, the buttom is called "immediate execution".

  • guest

    wel people aren't reading the help people ask for. People want to know how they can activate region 1 after they bought it. That's mine and other people real question

    • guest

      There is no activating involved. When you buy a new region the fence moves a little bit. That's it.

      • jjj

        i have the same problem i bought a region but i cannot build more buildings… what do i do?

  • Hannah

    hi guys, I have recently downloaded on to my hero, its quite cool because i have a long tube journey in the morning and if i get a seat paradise island makes it fly by. I think i am missing the obvious though as can not save my games, can anyone please tell me how this is done? thanks

    • Stemband

      I got my hot dog award after I finished the 15th stand. I also tried to buy another one, and got the message I reached the maximum amount. Maybe give that a try?

    • Charlotte

  • Fan of the islands

    Any Ideas on how often the treasure chests come up? I've gotten two on one level and my husband only got one on the same level. For those who don't know occasionally a chest floats up on the left side of the pier.

  • Leah

    anyone know how to earn more paistres?

    • Anonymous

      the only way i know is to either buy them by pushing the “plus” sign on top of the game screen or earning achievements. when you earn all of the achievements, you get 8 million dollars, 100 piastres, and 10 thousand XP

  • fan

  • jamie

      Treasure Chests appear every 5 hours.  When you get one, check the time and look for another one in 5 hours

  • fan

    more info about secret awards!

  • Paige

    What happens if you send something to the store? Where does it go & can you get it back? I sent one building & can't find it in the warehouse.

  • Meredith

    I played for several days, but now when I open the app, the screen turns black and seems to lock my phone. When I unlock it, it freezes. I can easily get back to my home screen, but I just want to know what is wrong with it. I wasn't alerted of any possible updates or anything. Has this happened to anyone else? I don't want to lose my game's progress.

  • JohnSmith2332

    There is a new cheat app for paradise island called "paradise island trainer" on android market, which can set you money and piastres to millions!

  • Mary

    What do the treasure chests do? Do you click on them and get a reward?

    • PixiePDX

      I click it a lot in a row… id say like 20 times, then it gives me money and sinks

  • delbeeezy

    Be sure to check your rewards before spending money or piastres, sometimes u only need a couple more ti get a reward…ex-to unlock the heli-pad and atlas hotel takes 45 piastres but if u collect 50 u gain a reward….:) happy building…

    15 cabins? where can I find them? I cant find them

    • Anonymous

      in the bottom left of the game screen, there is a big “hut” in a box. click on that. then click on the “house” button on top (if not already checked). then click on “cabin” which costs $700. you are allowed to place 15 cabins on your island. but make sure there is a road where you can place it on.

    hi i have lots of space and have 10 cabins but it wont place any more when i buy another…any clue?

    • Anonymous

      the maximum number of cabins you can have is 15. so that means that there is no available roads to place it by. Try rotating your cabin or build more roads

  • Samleescott2005

    Why do people move their items to the warehouse??? Can we just do that for more room on the island and still make money from the buildings in the warehouse? What is the point of the WAREHOUSE??? help!!!!!

    • Thetrifakta

      I found that it is helpful when rearranging buildings on your island and you don’t have the   estate to “relocate” Move them into the warehouse, make changes, then put the building back!? That’s about the only reason I use the warehouse. Hope this helps.

  • Samleescott2005

    There has to be another way to buy pastries too???? Like without spending money!!!????

    • Brittanygunderso

      There is a building that collects basically a paistre ever day, it has the piastre sign at thee top.

  • Thetrifakta

    Fun free game BUT you can only get certain buildings if you actually buy coins or money. Doing mine without buying any of the above.

  • Dvblackscorpion1996

    And when do you start getting treasure chests?…

    • Canike0nline

      keep looking for them, and when you fine one, click on it and collect the money, the next one will appear 5 hours later, so if you check every five hours you should find them.

  • Peanut

    My phone locked up and the buildings I was fixing/building showed that it was going to take like 400 days to finish. I have fixed most of them by paying the 11 piastries to immediately fix them, but now I can’t get island resources from my tourists and my treasure chests stop showing up. I am on level 12 now. Without the resources it is very hard to buy anything in Leonid’s shop. Can anyone help me?
