    Underwater Adventures For Our Heroes

    Sunny Sunny SunnySunny 


    Lively and light hearted, the new addition to the Island Tribe traditional feels like a breath of fresh air! I have been avoiding all previous Island Tribe games deliberately, because I was frightened I’d get hooked on the whole series. And it was definitely a near thing. This game’s story has great appeal, as well as all the features you could hope for in a resource management game. And lots of new challenges for the adventurous heroes.

    The graphics are cartoon – the game is cartoony – but they look good and cheerful. The music seems to be the same track used by every game of resource management game I’ve played. The little Heroes dance around in their diving gear with ease, and are cute. And the underwater scenery is nicely done.

    Our friend ‘Researcher’ has discovered Atlantis, but the Atlanteans discovered him, and now they hold him prisoner. The heroes take no time at all to resolve to rescue him. The initial levels cover their underwater adventures. And it is great fun. There are manatees and piranhas to drive away, kelp and crabs to farm, and, I’m amazed to find out, the ‘traditional’ sawmills to repair! In the deepest sea? Oh well, it’s fun, so we’ll pretend we don’t notice *grin*. The story promises a lot more odd characters and structures before we’re done.

    Not having played the other Island Tribe games, I can’t tell you if any of these features are new, but here’s what I saw.

    • 3 difficulty levels, plus an untimed mode
    • Ability to queue tasks to get maximum efficiency
    • Diamonds to find (although they’re all different colours)
    • Artifacts that lead you to Researcher’s whereabouts
    • Ability to replay every level immediately
    • Book that displays Achievements, Collectibles (Artifacts)
    • High Scores
    • Challenging gameplay right from the very first levels

    It probably says more about my inexperience with resource management games, than about the game itself, but I was stuck in the 5th level already (in untimed mode!), because I didn’t take into account that some structures consumed resources as well as produce them. I ran out of the available kelp with no more to find, and couldn’t complete the objectives.

    I Recommend This Game!
