Village Sim 1.0

I would like to point everyone to a relatively new game called Village Sim. When I first put it on my device I was sceptical of whether I was going to keep it on my device thinking that it was how in my opionion other Sims are. BORING! This game is presently the most active game on my palm. Truthfully the only one I'm playing cause it's so addictive. I had to buy it there was no if ands or buts about it. The features (below) are just a hint of what you will actually be experiencing with this gem of a game. Try it you'll like it!

Code:
Game Description  	   	   	

Village Sim is a village simulator where you care for and nurture a tribe of little people by teaching them the basics of survival. The object of the game is to grow a small village in your Palm OS device: they have food needs, housing needs, technologies to research and diseases to fight! As the village grows and prospers, the villagers become curious about their mysterious island home and the secrets it holds. Aside from guiding the villagers' day-to-day lives, they player helps them to explore and restore the island.
The game runs in TRUE REAL-TIME, so that if your device is turned off or you exit the game, hours later the little people will have grown and new surprises await you. 

Features 
 	
*Hundreds of different little people that inhabit your Palm OS
*Discover the Island of Isola, home of the Magic Fish and Magic Plants!
*Hidden puzzles: uncover the mysteries of the Island of Isola
*Dozens of Random Island Events to keep you on your toes! Trapped Whales, Monkeys, Measels and much more!
*Control the destiny of your survivors! Create your own adventure with the decisions you make
*Breed your villagers and build your own tribe!
*REAL-TIME! Keeps going even when your Palm is off!
*New surprises every time you turn on your device!
*Extremely Addictive and Unique Style of Gameplay
*Total of 3 amazing original Soundtracks and ambient sound effects!
*No time pressure - No stress - No violence
*Adjustable difficulty and flow of time
*Great Tutorial to get you started

I'm totally addicted to this game.

One of my villagers is about to die though, and I'm freaking out. I need to figure out how to save him. The healer keeps thinking she needs to embrace him, not heal him!

Ugh. I did what everyone warns against: I left my villagers alone overnight instead of putting it on 'pause'.

When I woke up they were dead! I don't get it either -- I had over 500 food points.

Oh well, back to the drawing board....


SO addictive

The cool thing about this game is that it runs all the time and the simulation just keeps on going.

It looks great/ I just checked the forums there, and a PPC version is in the works as well. Woot!

Hey I can't believe you guys didn't know about the editors yet!

These are a life saver, especially if your villagers die...he, he, he

http://jhywu.tripod.com/

Also, I have had that problem with them "dr" not healing but hitting on patients...not sure how to get around it, I have tried up-ing the "healing" points to no avail, so I usually just put the "dr" NEAR the patient and hope for the best or if I can't handle a death at that moment, I go into the editor and heal the villager myself

I know about the editor, I just choose not to use it. Another handy trick is to save your pdf file to your external card and load that file back into RAM if you need it. Which I didn't do of course.

Yea, the healing vs. embracing thing is somewhat mystifying.... I'm on my second round, and hoping for another whale (1k food points).




Alex: I had a fish named Gil. The coroners report ruled it a suicide, but I'm not convinced since he didn't leave a note.

I'm kind of wondering about the different variables within the game. I've had to restart it three times so far and each time I get different characters... which is nice actually.

Here's who I have right now:
Ulu - Orange Dress, wearing flowers around her neck and in hair
Elaku - Wearing a red and tan striped shirt
Zen - Red head wearing a green dress (she's my healer due to her name )
Amaci - Came out of the bushes and is our master farmer. She's wearing a blue dress and has blue hair
Azizi - Another blue hair, he sports a stache and beard and is wearing a vest (total hippie dude)
Uan - Dark haired dude with stache and beard too, his shirt is gray
Dofi - Long blue hair with green dress


So far I haven't gotten past the flower field, but it seems that I miss a puzzle somewhere. (shrug)

A whale washes on shore and you can harvest it for food. I don't know what you're talking about with naming the fish, but I've restarted my game recently so I may not be that far along.
