Condor Conservationists! We're back with a new update. We've gotten some helpful players making us aware of a few bugs - mostly, about Condors being poisoned wayyy to fast! Although this is a problem in real life, we are tweaking our numbers so they don't die quite so quickly. Best of luck, and we look forward to you growing the population of California Condors in Condor Country. Thank you for the continued support!
Ratings and Reviews
Use its flaws to your advantage
After playing some more I'm updating my original one-star review. The game is still deeply flawed and needs serious tweaking, but I've discovered you can use the flaws to your advantage. To begin, it seems the developers overcompensated in their last update and made the condors more or less immortal. At first it seemed like you had to invest, and lose, all your money into keeping your birds alive. But that's not true. I haven't cured a single condor in almost two months, and have had exactly one death from lead poisoning -- and that was early on. It's been at least a month since I've spent a penny on healing my birds and have lost zero. What I am doing, however, is racking up some serious change. Today I hit over $1 million; I plan to build up to $10 million, at which point I'll buy the rest of my territories and pay to incubate more eggs. Sweet, eh? That's the good news. The bad is that other parts rest of the game are still poorly designed. All your chicks will die and the game will forget it laid eggs in the wild. It's still ridiculously expensive for everything, but if you're willing to let your condors sit in their pens while you make money, that's a win. Sort of. So, zoo and developers, please do nothing while I get virtually rich while doing nothing about the health of my birds.
Awesome Game, needs a few things
Hi! I love this game, but it needs a few things. I don't know how to set led poison traps, and some times I just wish you could have a chat log to see things recently said to you. You need to make other games like this for things like elephants, tigers, and other endangered animals! Overall, great game!
Still a few issues
Thanks for changing the realistic but deeply depressing death rate. I'm still having a couple of issues, though. As the previous reviewer mentioned, the wild born chicks sometimes vanish without the game ever acknowledging it. And I agree that the possibility of ever buying more territory seems nonexistent. Also, It seems like my immature condors are stuck in the middle maturity level now, and don't become adults. The time to adulthood never seems to drop below four days. So all breeding in the wild has ground to a halt.
