About This Game


Become a leader of a little group of settlers to create a thriving colony which will envy even the developed nation!
Who says it would be easy?!
An untamed land where you will have to make everything on your own –to provide your people with food and shelter then to give them job and protection. Day by day you will have to remake your production plans, switch your workers to find out the best solution for each industry. But keep in mind, that every citizen has his own temper that one day can be shown off. And that’s not the only difficulty that may will face. Pirates and wild tribes are all around this Promised Land to disturb your presence and development here.

To create a developed colony one will not only need to become keen in production, but also in science. Experience points that you earn in the Academy, will be needed to get the access to advanced technologies or your town would be just another village on this land. Think well over what and where you spend your points on, because your choice will depend on the fate of the entire colony!

The Promised Land, a brave new world , the hole nation – all this lies in your hands! Become a true leader, a chosen one, a father of nation! Guide your colony to the victory of the modern superpower!

If you've played The Happy Hereafter, Virtual Villagers, or Gemini Lost, you will feel right at home directing the doings of your little burgeoning colony. There are tons of resources to gather, buildings to build and upgrade, and a good variety of areas to explore. You'll gradually manage more and more colonists with varying abilities as you explore the map and make the most of all the land has to offer, as you quest for the fabled Fountain of Happiness.

What surprised me most about the game is an the addition of "pirate battles," which really play more like rounds of Angry Birds. There are 12 of these stages, and they are satisfying and welcome diversions. I could have easily enjoyed many, many more of these battles, but really, the bulk of the game is spent building your colony through gathering and trade.

The Promised Land is a much better game that you might think it would be. Yes, it's casual fare, and it's at the top of its class.

A very simple economy/city building game. You get 'X' amount of people to do a bunch of chores, once you've collected enough resources, built the required buildings and accomplished a few tasks you get more people to get more resouces, build buildings and accomplish more tasks.

There isn't exactly a whole lot of depth to it but what is there is fun and entertaining. Some of the people are better at one task vs another, so you have to make descisions as who to stick where to make the best use of your people. At the same time you have to manage their hunger and happiness, both of which are accomplished easily enough, but can be a bit of a pain if you haven't been stockpiling enough. There is a few mini-games and such thrown in to give a bit of variety as well.

Not exactly the prettiest looking game, but the art was charming enough and fit the gameplay.

The game isn't very long, but is enjoyable enough to warrant a recomendation.

Best 'stand by' game ever. Great for late nights when you don't need to think, busy days when you only have a few minutes now and then or challenge yourself to a marathon weekend. I have played it many times.
The game it simple yet involved and very involving. You can run an entire community and even fight pirates.
Guidelines are simple and easy to follow. I have not noticed any glitches. Best thing is you can set your own pace.
I really want a second game in an expanded universe. The game demands it.

* Artwork/animation: 10/10
The artwork in this game is absolutely stunning. The animations are very cute and simple. Simplicity can cause some games to lack entertainment and a good foundation but it works very well in this case. I enjoyed them the whole way through.

*Hours to complete: 10 hours on average
I was able to beat the game and complete all challenges in the game within 10 hours.

*Story line: 10/10
The story line is very simple and cute. You're starting a new civilization on this, "promised land".

*Game play: 8/10
You don't get to choose where the buildings are placed, as there are already slots where they are automatically pre-placed. However, you do get to choose the amount of citizens you want at a time; you can buy them whenever you have enough money/reputation points and you can choose their job. You can choose when and what to discover as a technological advancement when it suits your needs. It's a slower paced game so patience is a must. I duducted points on this category solely on the fact that the trading notifications are quite annoying. When the old land is in high demand for an item there will be a notification telling you which item is in demand. Then, your advisor lets you know there's only a minute or so left to finish the trade. After the timer runs out, there is a notification after that either says good job for trading or to trade next time. The notifications are a great concept and I like the fact that it's meant to be a reminder, however, after you've been playing the game for five hours straight it just becomes more of an annoyance than helpful.

*Price: 10/10
The price today, 2/23/2015, is at $6.99. I would honestly and easily pay $15 for this game so the fact that it's under $10 is great.

*Over all:
I love this game an I totally recomend it if you like games where~
> you can build your own civilization
> you like slow paced or casual games
> you enjoy art work
> you love games under $10

Casual management game... assign jobs, be sure to produce food and necessary resources, expand your colony, build new buildings, sends ships out to trade for other merchandise, aquire more citizens, etc. I finished the game is just under 20 hours, so it has a nice amount of content.
