Customer Reviews

Cute but....

Stuck at 35 villagers... No more huts, got clothing and school.

All my villagers 'grew up' so had to wait for old age to take some... In older versions you could brew a stew to kill off some islanders.

Also not getting collection items, on the rare occasion i get something for the kids to collect its always mushrooms or duplicates of items already collected. I don't need mushrooms so often now as have over 20k food!

I read a tip that you can get more villagers after you 'tech up' or complete collections.

My tech is really slow to grow - no building or anything left to do

An how can i complete a collection if the pieces don't appear.

Add to this all my villagers have to do is lie around... All cloth, tools, soap are full, everyone is healthy and I'm back to 35 people and waiting for death to take some before the little ones grow up.

So its more than a bit tedious now... A few more days like this and i will just delete it as there is nothing left to do without tech points and the missing artefacts... Boredom is fast taking over this game

Great game

I brought this free game and because it's free, it didn't take long to load. I don't mind if the graphics are a bit on the weird side, but even the fact that you can change the characters names is great. It takes you on a journey to an island with a huge tree. It is there that your quest begins. You can have children, collect food, be the god of a village and so much more. 'last day of work' is a great invention and I hope they make more simulation apps.

By major fan of the iPad.


i love it's fun and works perfectly just like my other virtual villages I would get it!
