Love Island The Game: Don’t worry we played it so you don’t have to

If you don't fancy becoming one of the Islanders we played the game to see what happened

Never mind the World Cup, Love Island is the real hot topic in the UK right now.

The World Cup has FIFA 18 while Love Island now has a role playing app.

As the nation cheers on England whilst simultaneously rooting for their favourite couple in Love Island

We got into Love Island: The game for the Android and IOS.

It’s exactly what we expected, here’s what we found

You have to play as a girl entering into the villa to meet the love of her life or win the prize money.

You get to choose between four job roles: a runway model, a social media influencer, a trainee heart surgeon or a conceptual artist.

A broad selection of options, encompassing the majority of roles in the UK *cough*.

After an opening segment meeting the other girls in the villa, where your memory is tested to remember who went through difficult breakups and such, you get to choose your couple.

Just like the show, you don’t have to stay coupled up and can ‘graft’ other people to meet your perfect match.

We didn’t know who to couple up with!

Just like any other mobile app, you can purchase new clothes with gems, which also give you the option to choose unique dialogue options…

If you don’t want to be dumped we found it’s best to be nice to everyone and try and settle down with someone fairly quickly.

The ‘islanders’ play games where, depending on what you say, you will be judged accordingly.

During a game of ‘Never have I ever’ we came across as too keen and a bit too… adventurous, which put the nicer lads off.

You can feel the sass through the screen

This game is definitely not for everyone… If you have too much time on your hands and don’t mind spending real money to get that flashy new bikini to woo the new man in the villa, then this is the game for you!

Otherwise, it may be best to stick to FIFA.
