Wastin’ Away Again in Margaritaville……online.
Sometimes living the long weekend life and escaping to the islands is as easy as booting up your Mac or PC…..but you already knew that or you wouldn’t be here. When you feel the urge to go fishing or explore an island cave, maybe talk to a hippie or two, build a boat, do the limbo, eat some coconut all you need to do is visit Margaritaville Online.
For all you Parrot Heads and Parrot Head wanna be’s there is a way to be wastin away again just by visiting Facebook or firing up your iPad or iPhone. THQ and exploding Barrel games have teamed with Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville brand to create the ultimate island game. With a loose story line based on Jimmy’s famous songs to follow you can unlock new adventures and quests to do everything from build boats to finding scattered pieces of a magical harmonica that has been broken by a evil monkey.
Build your own Oasis and invite your friends to play in the band and then set off on your quests as you go from level to level. There are multiple mini games as well to play where you will spend some quality hammock time (think Bejeweled with a twist), shoot Pirates trying to invade the island (the jewel level here is particularly entertaining), do the limbo (you must have good eye hand coordination for this one) or play a steel drum (Simon says). Once you reach a certain level and build your own boat you can also go fishing for everything from Permit to Sailfish or spend the day on the water netting for treasure off the coast. It’s all in a days “work” while you explore the islands.
Some things to remember about Margaritaville is there are plenty of opportunities to spend money on in app purchases. While they are not required they do speed the game along. Everything from building bridges to boats or frozen concoction makers may cost extra if you are lacking supplies or want to speed up the monkeys building the project (those monkeys are really slow).
So if you are sitting at home or your desk wishing you could enjoy the islands or escape to Margaritaville even if only for a little while then check out Margaritaville Online for Facbook and the iPad and Margaritaville mobile for your iPhone and enjoy your long weekend life exploring these virtual islands and put out the “Gone Fishing” sign.
