Embark on exploration in open-world game 'Seabeard'

A new exploration-based mobile game lets you rebuild a lost city and take to the high seas.

The free-to-play game for all ages, Seabeard sets sail today for iPhone and iPads. The game flows from a hearty heritage.

Developer Backflip Studios' classic Paper Toss was the most downloaded game of 2009, while dragon collecting and breeding game DragonVale earned its way to be the top grossing iPad game of 2012. Puzzle adventure game Spellfall just landed on the App Store Best of 2014.

Backflip's success led to Hasbro last year paying $112 million for a 70 per cent stake in the Boulder, Colorado developer. Not surprisingly, new Hasbro brand-based games are in the works at Backflip as is a new Dungeons & Dragons mobile game due in the middle of next year.
