Island Tribe 2 HD review (iPad)November 29, 2011
♫ “Living on an island, Oh boy we’re having fun”
10 word description: Strategic resource/time management sequel. 3 episodes, 30 levels. Game Center.
10 word review: Fun, colourful, entertaining and polished. Arcade mode can be tricky!
You will like this if you enjoy: Time/resource management games: Island Tribe (the first one), My Kingdom for the Princess, Roads of Rome, etc.
The good news: Looks very pretty, lots of nice effects & animations, intuitive and familiar controls (even though I haven’t played the first Island Tribe game), casual and arcade modes, plenty of levels.
The bad news: Complete newcomers to the genre may find it initially quite hard to figure out some aspects of the game, although most of the information is there if you watch the little pop-up messages and tips.
Arcadelife verdict: Very good! I’ve been having a lot of fun playing this one and it’s easy to recommend to any time/resource management fans. Casual mode opens it up even more, as you seem to be able to mess up quite significantly without managing to fail a level. Arcade mode is another story, and the mad pirate who runs around sabotaging buildings and destroying bridges can be a right pain in the neck.
Arcadelife rating: 89/100
