  • Conclusion: There's still no "everybody stop everything right now" function?
  • Pros: Non-violent, non-stressful, family-friendly gameplay.
  • Cons: Might be too similar and unpolished for those familiar with Keflings .

Akimi Village Review

GameSpot
13 July 2011
  • Excerpt: There's a fine line between laid-back and boring, and Akimi Village doesn't always fall on the right side of it. This easygoing city builder's appeal is also its greatest liability: a slow pace. Sometimes, the relaxed tempo lulls you into a sense of comfort, as you roam through the game's green meadows, lugging around bonsai trees and chilling to the reassuring soundtrack.
  • Pros: Music lulls you into a Zen-like state, Turning gloomy areas into bright, sunny ones is a joy, It's fun to see your village take shape
  • Cons: So laid-back it can get boring, No variety to the gameplay or visuals, Even more stripped than the developer's previous, similar games

  • Summary: Ninjabee's Xbox Live Arcade hits A Kingdom for Keflings and A World of Keflings are like digital crack. If you ever spent hours on any Settlers game, the Keflings games let you do the same kind of thing -- but from your comfy couch -- for hours on end. Sadly, PlayStation 3 owners have had to do without with the fun gameplay that the XBLA exclusives provided. That is, until Ninjabee's latest Akimi Village arrived for PlayStation Network.

  • Excerpt: Akimi Village fixes a great injustice. Although Xbox owners have been able to enjoy two Kefling games from NinjaBee, PlayStation 3 owners have been out of the loop. Though the name may not strike the same chord as say, Gears of War , both Kefling games are a fantastic way to relax and have fun doing it. Similar to Keflings , Akimi Village keeps things simple. The visuals are bright and show a lot of personality.

  • Conclusion: Akimi Village is a very basic game that will only appeal to a certain type of gamer. One who is willing to invest a decent amount of time into restoring the vitality of a world, through repetitive actions. Due to this and its aforementioned issues, it's hard to recommend to anyone other than the hardcore life simulator fans. If its issues and mechanics were worked upon, polished and infused with some more life, this game could be quite good.

  • Excerpt: Akimi Village is a city-building game unlike any that I have seen before. It resembles more Animal Crossing than Sim City, but don’t let the cute graphics fool you. This is mostly about building lots of things and doing it in an efficient manner. This can be fun, but it quickly proves to be tiring.
