Playing It Wrong

I read a lot of these reviews and they claim “bugs” that occur but really it’s just the players not knowing what to do. Your villagers are starving because you’re not getting enough food and the game is not forgiving enough for you to make mistakes. There is no time bug where going from 2500 food to 600 food because this is an RTS that continues playing and will punish you if you don’t have it set to 0,1/2,1,2 speed (I however don’t recommend setting it to 0 at any time). This game functions perfectly fine for where it originated back in the late 2000s I believe (correct me if I’m wrong). There are your none game breaking bugs such as the dropping of food while being picked up to do something else or the fast breeding by repeatedly dropping your people on each other to skip the “going inside” feature; however, these aren’t game breaking. This is my first full review I’ve ever written on the AppStore and I have to praise this game because it is a time waster like all games, but it encompasses an RTS and the difficulty that came with older generation games. Virtual villager has its faults as it becomes a relic of the past but people have to appreciate the game for what it is and not complain difficult features as “bugs.”

P.S I finished the game after 400 hours or so. (I set my times differently so I’m not sure how long it actually took)

I just got this app and I am ALREADY frustrated

So when I first got the app I chose to get the instructions and some of my villagers had a baby. But then for some reason I decided to start over. So i got a new tribe but chose NOT to get the instructions. But I was still doing really well. I had an advanced doctor and a bunch of trainees. I had plenty of food. All of my villagers were healthy. But when I tried having a kid with two of my villagers, it said they were too hungry to think about it. I tried again. Did not work. So I had them eat and drink from the well and tried AGAIN. STILL did not work. I had them eat more and forage for more food it they were still apparently hungry. This annoys the heck out of me because they few times they did "go indoors" it didn't freakin' work. They must have gone indoors 5 times now but it STILL WILL NOT WORK. Worst of all, it’s a waste of my time. They went indoors 5 times in about 30 min. and still couldn't have a kid. They also are ALWAYS "too hungry" to think about having a kid, even if I literally JUST had them eat. So over and over again I drag one on top of the other, and they just run away or embrace but say they are TOO HUNGRY to HAVE A KID.

Later:
Had this app for about a day, and already want to blow up the island the villagers live on. 😡😡😡😡😡😡

One of the Best Games I've Ever Played!

I love this game! It is amazing! The graphics look like their from the 90's, but it's all good. I actually kind of like that the graphics look like that. It reminds me of my childhood. The best game I've ever played is definitely Minecraft, but this game is a very close second! I've had this game for about a week, and I already deleted all my apps because all I need is this one! But still,I have some complaints. One of my villagers has already died, and he has still not been buried. Another thing is I can't find any other food source than the berry bush. My villagers are starving and I can't find any other food source and I really need you guys to fix this! Please! I like that it continues going on even when you're not playing. I switched from iPad to computer because my iPad had way too many ads and I couldn't focus on anything. Anyways, if you get this game and figure everything out report back to me. Thank you for making this game!
