I reinstalled this game after having so much fun with #3. Mistake! I forgot how boring it is. There is no challenge to the levels whatsoever. If you just want a game that kills time but offers no incentive to think, this is the game for you.

A pretty good time management game
I usually play HOG and M3 games and avoid time management games because I neither want to run a kitchen or catering service or farm. I played Kingdom Chronicles and found that some time management games are great fun, however. Then I played Gnome?s Home and was hooked. I tried a few other time management games and finally selected Island Tribe for a nice change from my usual fare and a generally fun time. It was not the equal of the aforementioned two games, but it was pretty good. I play the easiest level and just try to have fun. This game hit the spot.

I purchased all three of the Island Tribe games and have enjoyed them all. Some levels are easy and some of the levels are more difficult. The only thing I did not like about the first Island Tribe is that you do not have a time bar to track your time, you hear a ping instead. The second and third games have a bar where you can see the amount of time you have left. This helps. As some reviewers have noted this game is easier than some other TM games, but it is still fun and very entertaining. I would recommend this game for first time TM gamers and for others who just want to relax and have fun.

A Fun Series!
After trialing many TM and Strategy games, I've found this series to be one of my favorite! The graphics are bright and colorful, and sound is tolerable. My favorite point of the series is that your can queue tasks for your workers, so that even though they DO have to return to camp after each task (sometimes they can group 2 tasks together), you know where they are headed next. Also best is that the resources regenerate quickly when you upgrade your buildings, but I hate when the lightening strikes! There is something going on all around the game board, all the time! And the fireworks at the end of each level are cool! I love fireworks, no matter where they are! Remember to collect your diamonds!

I have quite a few games from BFG but so far Island Tribe and it's sequels are my all-time favorites! They are fun to play and have cute graphics and audio. The story continues, and I look forward to Island Tribe 4! Anyone wanting to buy a first game, would enjoy this one!

I loved the weather game that was similar to this so I thought I'd give it a shot, but boy howdy. This game was bad.
I hated the fact that each time you gained a material you HAD to run back to your little camp to drop it off before doing anything else. It was a waste of time.
Now if you excuse me, I'm going to go back playing Weather Lord.

Way too easy
This game has absolutely no challenge to it at all.
