Despite only being launched 12 days ago, BTS Island: Into the SEOM is one of the most popular mobile games of the month. Released on both Android and iOS, the recent K-Pop game is steaming its way into the top downloads everywhere. Likewise, BTS often steams its way up the charts… probably.

What is this game?
We didn’t have time to get too far into BTS Island. However, we can definitely see its appeal from the little bit we played…for research purposes. The game instructs you to travel to the aforementioned private island – who are they, Johnny Depp? – to hang out with all the members of the band.
Rendered in a cute 3D Chibi art style, the game features lots of puzzles and crazy stories for fans of the band. In addition, you get to read countless stories about all seven band members. Personally, we liked V (I think), the klutz of the group.
To be quite honest, BTS Island is not really for us. However, it is very easy to see the appeal for fans of the band. It’s also free, so that’s a huge plus. There’s really no reason not to try it out unless you hate all things BTS. That’s a good reason to avoid.
