A tribe sim game

Virtual Villagers is a sort of tribe simulator, which sounds great. You are in care of a little group of villagers who dwell and try to prosper in a tropical island. There are many variants and sequels of this game. They all work in the same way with little if any differences among them.

This game is quite comprehensive, and it's based on two main premises: micro management and real time running.

Regarding the former, you have to look after every individual villager, and UI doesn't help much once your town has grown a little. yes, you also have to pair couples so they can procreate, and raise buildings and investigate new techs. Now and then events arise to add the necessary haphazardness, and once you get a permanent camp, some villages can take the role of scouts and go deep into the island to seek out secrets.

"Real time running mean that Virtual Villagers isn't kept hold while you do other things, it runs in the background. Yes, this means you have to keep an eye on it just to be sure everything is OK.

Graphics are fine, though they may look too childish for your liking. In the end, they're sim games more demanding that they first look like, whose greatest flaw is an uncomfortable interface that makes you invest time than it should otherwise need.

Developer's original description available here
Follow two curious, determined villagers as they make their way into the darkest recesses of the cave that had long taunted them. Plunge with them into dazzling sunlight and mist, as a magnificent waterfall at once cuts them off from their friends and family and brings them face to face with ... children!

- Explore the western shore of Isola: all new puzzles, technologies, and island events!
- Breed unique villagers and raise your own thriving tribe.
- Watch your villagers go from toddlers, to adults, to grey-haired elders.
- Unique and unpredictable "Island Events" to keep you on your toes.
- Dozens of unique collectibles for children to retrieve.
- Make a variety of unique stews from hidden herbs, many with strange and unpredictable effects.
- Runs in true real time: new surprises every time you turn the game on.

    Wouldn't usually complain but this is a paid app, Characters don't look right, they are really thin and impossible to pick up. This is a great game but I can't play it like this! Google Nexus 5

    My game is so borked I cannot even see the villagers right. The movement is slow and everything is shrunken. I want a refund!
