Summary: Coconut Queen is an amazing game, but it is also a chance for you to discover the island of Lui Lui (which sounds like Louie Louie -- go ahead and use that as the soundtrack for the rest of this review), which is mysteriously devoid of females! How mysterious! If you like games or spending time on tropical islands, you will probably have a blast with this game.
Summary: I admit I went into this game because the over the top silly description expecting a train wreck. To my surprise I found it was actually quite a good game. It's very well put together with short scenarios you can equally play in small bursts or long addicted sessions. Free play modes are also available. Basically what you do is manage a resort which is easier said than done at times.
Summary: A charming and addictive management style game that has you running an island paradise. Cute and fun for the casual gamer with regular doses of clean humor. After only a few scenarios you'll unlock a free play mode to craft your own tailor made resort or continue onward through multiple sections of the island as you advance the plot and learn through flash backs and the narration of your companion what made you the Coconut Queen.
Summary: This game sounded a bit silly at first, but I was suprised to discover that it's a very addictive easy going RTS. It kind of reminds me of age of empires mixed with command and conquer generals except it's based on a beach. This game is very well put together, stable and hasn't crashed once with the exception of an occasional screen glitch which is hardly noticeable. The cutscenes are cute and funny.
Summary: I absolutely adore this game, and I'm so bummed that there won't be a sequel. Coconut Queen is a building sim/time management/strategy game that gives you full freedom over how you choose to build and design your resorts. This gives it nearly endless replay value. Indeed, I have replayed the game many, many times, and will continue to do so. Coconut Queen is really unique, and the only ones that are even close to it in terms of gameplay are Paradise Beach 1 and 2.
Summary: I adore this game. Unfortunately, the only reason I came across it was reading the article on why there won't be a sequel, which is really disappointing because Coconut Queen really is fantastic. I've played Build-A-Lot and similar games before, and what always frustrated me was that you were starting from zero every new level. Not the case here. Building up each area, and sticking with it, works really, really well, and sets the player up for different challenges.
Summary: The game is cute, I found voiceovers and comments quite humorous. The game itself is nice but for some reason some of the things you do (like with the commercial businesses) were not natural flow in my mind of how they worked. I also seemed to keep having difficulty finishing within the timed goals (surprising for me as I play TM games as a rule). Anyway, maybe I'm just too tired and not on the ball enough tonight but I decided to pass on this game.
