  • Summary: Don't buy if you aren't good at Angry Birds This game has mini games that require you to be good at Angry Birds. If you can't complete the mini games, you can't complete the game you purchased. All progress will stop. You will get no new quests. You won't be able to increase your population. You will just stagnate with no hope for progress at all. You'll just stare at the game and sell your goods because you can only get halfway through the game.

  • Summary: I love playing this type of game! As others have said, it is similar to Virtual Villagers, without the feature of the game continuing while you are away. I found I didn't get as involved with my people as much as in the V.V. games, probably because they can do most things by themselves once you've set it in motion, and they don't die or have children. Most of the game is explained well but there's no way to review the tips/rules after you've passed them.

  • Summary: A really good game. As others have commented, it's similar to Virtual Villagers. Graphics are very nice, the storyline is basic and length/accomplishments are good! My only 'complaint' is that there is no help if you've forgotten something, that's the reason I gave this 4 out of 5 stars. Game has a good value and it has replay value. I really hope Alawar does a sequel to this game.

  • Summary: A good and interesting strategy game that works almost similar with Virtual Villagers except that the game its not playing without you. Everything goes from where you left it on the exit. You start with a hand of colonists and have to build them a community with everything needed. Gather resources, learn to craft various products, research, trade, gather treasures and fight pirates. The fights have similar mechanics with Angry Birds.
