This is fantastic!

I absolutely LOVE this game and the other VV games and it's been quite a while and other big fans would love a VV6, I understand if it takes time to make it or if it's a big project, you don't need to rush at all, but I will say something about the other reviews, specifically the negative ones that go on to say that their villagers keep dying, do they even realise that there's a pause button?

The ones that say that it's boring/frustrating probably don't either have the patience or they haven't got the tutorial on to help them get a better grasp of the game. And it's not like the villagers are going to work or accept their job straight away, patience is the key.

And I'm only 13.

I've played all the virtual villagers to completion on computer a long time ago. Recently I found that this one was available for free on mobile and it's a wonderful game. It's definitely fun if you enjoy virtual games and you get attached to your villagers. It's fun to try and get them up and want them to succeed. This is a game that's more than fun to sit and relax with and I've put hours into it enjoying it as much as I used to. A definite recommendation for those who enjoy virtual games. A piece of art.

I love this game⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I love this game! It's really realistic and fun. I hate it when I am unable to play for a day and I come back to games like this and everyone is dead😮😮😮. But with this game it isn't the case as I can just pause and play it again when i want!
