These games can get a little addicting, but you definitely need a lot of tips online to continue it in some parts, most things are well hidden and are confusing at best so I found I needed quite a bit of help. Good game but not my favorite in the genre.

Fun game. But you have to keep your eye on your villagers, the game runs even if you exit out of it. I've always come back the next day and find that they have all died. x-x

Fun waste of a few hours. Easy to run in the background when you're doing homework or housework or something else, and come back to check on sometimes. Doesn't have much repeatability, but alright.

Designed to entice children, then force dad to figure it out. Boring as shit after a while.

Everyone dies too quickly and I find its difficult to really progress without following a very specific formula. Takes micro managing to the extreme, as food sources can completely vanish and leave you with an elder and two children to run the entire village. I remember it being more fun as a child, but possibly because it was only played in five minute increments. The fact that it can't be paused and runs even while closed is another bad point. Leave the game alone for a day, and you come back to a dead village.
