Fab wee game!

Excellent game - very addictive! A good dose of luck is necessary in this game though. A few hints - choose a child, a nursing mother, a man and 2 other women as yr starting group. Ideally you should try and make sure each villager has some knowledge of each of the 5 stats when u start off then u can build from there. In addition don't be too hasty to have babies - remember that the more villagers you have the more food you consume which can quickly cause you problems early on in the game. Once you have the fish nets you can procreate at will.

Soap - 3 soapy smelling plants and salt water
Catch a crab by using two children to distract crab while an adult grabs it.
Cloth is vines in salt water
Use 3 sweet herbs in freshwater to have them honour the tree - as many villagers as possible need to do this.
Cutting tools are gotten by putting fish bone in fire.

Hope this helps, there are many mysteries in Isola and these are only a few of the solutions.

Happy playing!

So so......

As with all the other virtual villager games I find them good for a while.... With this one I have enjoyed building up my tribe and have maximum population. Most tasks are completed except for the annoying last few that I can't work out. I can't seem to clear the debris over the large stones near the fire. Also who is the person 'pure in body' who can help heal the tree? The hole in the ground is still there and the stream and pond are still empty. There doesn't seem to be any clues how to solve these last few things. And with 90 villagers its all a bit pointless now. I might have to start again from scratch.


It's a really good game to begin with, but a major difficulty is finding food! It takes ages to get to making cloth and whilst you can't you have to rely on the berries! I love the island events but I need more! Overall, I would say don't waste your money unless you really want to... **unimpressed face**
However, love the first game!
