Ratings and Reviews
Great port of a classic game favorite. Definitely worth playing again if you liked it on pc or even for the first time. Side note: every single complaint about the difficulty of this game could be solved with some curiosity and a Google browser. These games have been out for several years and have many excellent walkthroughs available on several different gaming sights. Also these games are slower paced, all of them. Do not expect to race through them in a day, they truly are excellent casual babysitting type games. Be prepared to go slow and have patience. So glad to get a chance to replay these on iPad which I can take with me anywhere. Runs great on older iPad as well.
I had no problem, whatsoever getting tech level 3 and feeding all the villagers so I could expand the population (secret is not having more than 17 and then putting everyone on tech). however, there is a max population of 40… meaning that when the huts are built there is nothing more to get master builders plus when you can grow the population quickening you end up with an aging population so some die off to expand and by then they are all too old. I remember the old version allowed 90 people and that was challenging and fun. this one not so much. I would gladly have paid more to get the same quality of game the first one offered. I finished this in just a few days on vacation and just deleted it… its over already. I wish it was the old version.
Pausing The Game
I had been pausing the game when I wasn't playing Tim make sure the village lasted during long periods away. Apparently it doesn't always pause. Halfway through the game and I'm down to one villager and zero food. How is this possible with the game paused? The same thing has happened to my husband on his iPhone. I'm not sure I want to start all over. It's fun to play but not if yo have to start from the very beginning after so much time. Hopefully it's a glitch they fix.
