“ARTIST COLONY turns out to be an engaging, great looking game whose quirkiness will keep you enthralled for many hours” 4.5 out of 5 stars - TouchReviews

Gamezebo says "ARTIST COLONY is surprisingly deep and an enjoyable game and is well worth your time and money, especially if you're a fan of people simulations. The unique concept is well-designed and successfully executed, and should provide many engaging hours of fun."*

Nurture your artists: Make sure they are rested and fed, keep them inspired, help them find love or heartbreak! Sell brilliant works of art as you battle the elements to restore a once-thriving colony and attract new talent.

There are 15 aspiring artsy type characters, including painters, sculptors, musicians, dancers and photographers. Make them interact with each other, fall in love, advance in their career, clean up messes they make or rebuild the abandoned building of the colony.

More than 12 locations to explore, including a wonderful lake, a music studio, a sculpture building and even a dance studio. Refresh the outdoors and renovate buildings so your artists can enjoy the environment and be inspired for their art!

Use the iPhone's touch interface to drag characters across the screen to make them interact with their environment. Ultra easy to pick and perfectly suitable for the iPhone/iPod Touch screen.

Complete the various tasks and receive awards you can share with your friends on Facebook. Post messages when you sell a masterpiece, when a new artist has arrived or when your artists fall in love with each other!

Play your favorite songs stored on your iPhone/iPod Touch without interrupting your game!

Amazing and engaging!

As an artist, I love the whole art theme. I am enjoying that there isn't any time constrants for the characters. Just allow them to do what they can and things come together. A little frustrating when some of the artists can perform or create their art while others can't even though they are "inspired" to. I'm at the point where I just need to build the statue and get the remaining skill points up. Great game, but kind of short if it ends after that accomplishment. (I just started playing today!). I hope that there are updates or expansions to continue the story after that point. If not then it's not worth $4. Overall it's an addicting and fun game just wish it wasn't quite as exspensive.


Thanks for bringing one of my favorite PC titles to the Ipod Touch! This game is every bit as fun as the original game!About the only differences I've noticed are the pink flowers stay where they're at at all times rather than coming and going as in the original. The controls are great for a touch-based game and playing is just about as easy as the PC game. My only complaint is that the characters look kind of small. Maybe if there was some sort of zoom system, where you could get a larger view.

Still beautiful, still fun, still worth $1.99!

disappointingly, didn't update

i played this over and over on my 2008 ipod touch, but recently got an ipad, and i expected a change in graphics that most iphone-only games go through when enlarging for the ipad screen--that's not the issue, the issue is that it crashes and restarts whenever I try to play it on the ipad, right after the two initial artists' first conversation, and i have been unable to get the game past that point. :( used to be one of my favorites, but i can't play it anymore, as my brother dropped my old ipod touch into water.
