"This is a great game, I just turned off all the music and sound in the game and played Pandora in the background. Great game to burn some time with!!"


“Tribloos 2 is a refreshing change of pace for time management fans”

“The Tribloos 2 is a casual simulation game done right. By dropping the well-tread overhead perspective and focusing on a few refined gameplay elements, it sticks to the basics and does them very, very well.”

“It’s like they know all of my weaknesses, brewed them in a pot and when dipping the prongs in they pulled out these two games. And the stupid thing is I like them.”

Tribloos 2 is about strategy and well-timed clicking rather than spam-clicking as fast as you can, so it should appeal to people who like to plan in their time-management games. (Like me!) Each chapter adds a new wrinkle, so you'll be learning new strategies throughout the game.

The game's difficulty is moderate. For an experienced player, it is fairly easy to get the gold award on the levels in the first chapter, but getting the gold becomes a true challenge by the middle to end of the game. The punishment for failure isn't severe (you just try the level again, and you can skip the intro if you want). After the first few levels, you have to do tasks in the right order, or you'll get stuck and have to start the levels over.

I found the art, animation, and music charming, and I also enjoyed the simple story. People with severe cuteness allergies should check the screenshots and videos before buying, though.

This is casual gaming at its most casual. You control a certain number of Tribloos to break up rock, build houses, sawmills, tool shops, etc... As you move from world to world you will find unique things that you can work on, but the basic gameplay remains the same throughout. Once you have the correct number of resources, icons light up for you to click on so that work can get started on those things. It's casual in the sense that the strategic portion fo the game is not intense, however, it's even less intensified by allowing you to beat the game without every getting a silver or a gold medal. This includes obtaining all of the achievements. This game does not have a challenge whatsoever. The gameplay has its bugs too. From time to time I would click for those carrying wood to bring the wood to the Tool Shop to makes tools and I'd have to wait for the Tribloos to get back home before venturing off to another chore. Other times it would work perfectly.

Then there's the annoying parts. For a timed game where you should complete a level within a certain amount of time, it's annoying to have your Tribloos sent back due to a pipe leaking gas from time to time. It's a difficult task to time it correctly, let alone time it and finish within a good amount of time. Same with the underground levels where your Tribloos can get hit by a falling boulder if you don't have hard hats on. I get that it's part of the strategy, but when it's random luck, or based on timing compared to an actual strategy, then it's just not that entertaining for a game.

The sounds aren't bad and neither are the graphics for this type of game, but due to the issues that I ran into I can not recommend this game. Try playing 12 Laborers of Hercules, you'll enjoy it more and it looks better.

This is a quick, fun little strategy game suitable for adults and children aged 6+. Most of the levels are very easy to complete - the challenge lies in doing them quickly enough to beat the timer and get gold star ratings. There are 75 levels plus 15 bonus levels in the game, which for me amounted to about 20 hours total play time. Easy to pick up for 10 minutes and put down again.

There isn't much I can add that many have already said about this game. But let's try this anyways without going into too much of details.

"Tribloos 2" is a fine example of a good "more of the same" sequels; while the gameplay is for the most part unchanged, most notable difference are the new visual-style especially the outlook of Tribloos themselves (jokingly saying: Very-long-distance Barnapapa-relatives have chapeshifted into Mogwai-Ewok-Wookie-offsprings).

Story-wise not having the experience of the first game isn't required for the most part mainly due similar premise alongside very "newbie"-friendly story-telling (I.E. Characters are explained briefly-enough without need of lenghty recaps and such; I just can't remmeber the name of the "trope" at the moment).

Story while simplistic (and perhaps slightly dispointing in the end to some), is still a very delightful read / exprience-through: This is mainly due nowadays very uncommonly seen genuiely seen "smart-characters". Again, the Mogwai-analoque from earlier joke seems to be rather fitting here.
For possible "spoilers" though, browsing though the screenshots of this game might give a rather good idea of the characters in general.

The gameplay is very good change of pace in a puzzle / management-market which tend to quite frustating with too strict rule-set and such.
Or what I am trying to say is that it's very enjoyable to be able to play games such as Tribloos which don't require lightining-fast thinking-reflexes alongside the need to thinking far too much ahead. Or anything else that would onstruct completing a simplistic game like this.
Point being, that aside of course the initial player mess-ups at the beginning of stages (E.G. not building the Saw Mill), all players are eventually going to be able to beat the stages alongside seeing this game through; the time-bonus is mainly for completionist, although even "casuals" might find excitement to get their planning and timing bring big high-scores.

Of course, the biggest question probably would be "how much worth this game is?". I personally can say that these 10-USA$ certainly were a better investement than 60€ for a 3-hours-game.

Sweet RTS-lite about gathering resources and building stuff with it. Good game if you like giving orders and clicking stuff to get work done.
