    Virtual Villagers 2: The Lost Children for iPad's review

    Published: 2014-04-08, by Peter Warrior.

    A tribe sim game

    • Wide array of options and stuff
    • Long playability
    • UI needs improvement
    • Gameplay and results are sometimes unclear

    "Go ask the black smoke"

    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.
