Very stressful and diaspointing

I had played and completed all of the other virtual villagers game and loved them, with just one flaw that annoyed and forced me to loathe this game. All of my villagers die if I fail to return within a few hours! The puzzles are fun and they make you think, one thing I love to do, but every time my villagers die, I'm heartbroken! It's as if they are real people and am neglecting them if I leave for a while! In this game I had thirty five people. During the night while I slept, they all perished! Breaking the blocking totem alone took hours of just restarting the process! Also in virtual villagers four I have had to restarting the game twelve times! It is extremely hard! Everytime all my villagers died I would ball and ball thinking it I killed my villagers! Last night my mother came in asking what was wrong and why was I crying. I replied that all of my villagers in my favorite game were dead. "Do you mean the game you played for days? They are all dead!?" she exclaimed. "Yes" I cried "All of them." My mom said that if the people I've worked sooooo hard on are going to die, I shouldn't play it. She told me it was too stressful on a thirteen year old girl to feel as if thirty people rested in my hands! Therefore, I ask that last day of work improve the feeling of stress of this game to make it fun and enjoyable for all.

Help is on the Way!!! :)

Hey if you need help with food, totems, and other junk then Superman is here! ;)

If you are starting the game and run out of food then use wasps or bees to make 20 noni appear!

Also save up 3000 tech points for the next upgrade!

If you need more help on getting food put Superman needs food in title!


You can finish the knowlegde and hungry totem in beginning but which ever you do the other will have more guards, heathens!

Hungry Totem
Use bees or wasps and drag many workers or have someone distract the yellow heathens.

Knowlegde Totem
If you have already defeated the Hungry Totem tgen you must use lighting because it scares red and yellow heathens drag more than one worker.
*Cheat use someone to distract yellow heathen inside labatory then drag villager to research must keep yellow heathen out!

5 holed totem by lake
Need 5 kids

You need to make the boulder where the relics go into a statue.

Pain Totem
Use lighting to take electritcy out for a few minutes then drag villagers to totem.

If you need more help on totems please type in Superman need totems!:)

To Gideon and Ldw

I read Gideon's review and i think I know why your villagers keep dying. Just think the food goes down WAY quicker than Virtural families so before you sleep get their food to above 1,000 just Incase. Plus this game is ment to be stressful all games like this are stressful yet they teach you how to take care of people. Life is stressful and these games are ment to imitate life so of course there is stress along the way. I've had this happen, not alot though, but it leaves my 5 people population with only like a child or two left to survive. It's a course of life and so I gave this game 5 stars because it captures villager life perfectly in it's own stressful way.
