So addicting!

Wow i'm amazed. I'm not easily entertained but this game keeps me satisfied for hours (wish it was the same to the villagers) Don't get me wrong,I love challenging but...this game's super hard! I sit there for days trying to figure out things! Meanwhile,my villagers are starving! Wish the algae would come later in the game,not the first day. That's why i only gave this game 4 stars. It's difficulty may too much. I'm sure some people may agree. I know there's an option where u can change the difficulty but it doesn't help much. Please dumb it down!

I like playing it... but

I liked playing these games on my computer and finally decided to start playing them on my iPhone. I passed the original virtual villagers in less than a week without a restart because I had previously beaten it. What I don’t like about any of the other virtual villagers games going forward is the the original/first lets you buy “boosters” of help like 2x tech point, buying tech point and food. I know everyone isn’t always about pay for a game but without any sort of help on the 2nd and 3rd games I’ve had to restart numerous times. I also have the issue with when I go to pause it, it doesn’t actually pause and all my villagers die overnight. Please fix these issues so I don’t have to cheat and look up help online to try to move to the next game!

Answers to questions

Getting rid of algae/ keeping villagers alive: Start saving tech points as soon as you start the game. Wait to buy level 2 farming and building until algae grows on water. (this way you have more food/ tech points) Farm coconuts and irrigate the stream to start farming. Soon, Narrow down your farmers to about 2 and send all other villagers to research table-- try to have maximum population while doing this so that there will be kids. Send kids to collect mushrooms and continue to save tech points. Buy level 3 farming and send adults to the pond to collect algae eating fish. (need lots of these fish)
