Island Tribe 2
An improvement on a solid road building game
This is a "road building" time management game similar to My Kingdom for the Princess and Roads of Rome. You send villagers to gather resources, clear obstacles, and perform level objectives like lighting a totem or building a bridge. There are also numerous awards to obtain as you progress through the game.
The graphics aren't as nice compared to the two games I mentioned above, although I really liked the non-interactive island animals like crabs and rabbits. Music is cute and bouncy. There's a nice variety of environments including beach, ice/snow, lava; it changed enough that I didn't get bored.
There is a timer, but it's very generous. The worst I ever did was missing the expert time by 30 seconds or so and there was still tons of time remaining. You get a gold for completing the level in the expert time and silver if you go past that, so I would assume that if time expires you can still move on to the next level but you get a bronze medal (I never ran out of time so I can't confirm that). Challenge level is reasonable and I got expert about half the time on the first try, and only took 1 or 2 repeat tries to get the expert time if I missed it.
If you've played the first game in this series, you'll find this one easier (as far as getting expert time). A new element added to the game is finding artifacts hidden in the level. Typically there are only 2 total, and 1 of them appears for only a limited (but reasonable) amount of time. There's no impact on finishing the level, the artifacts just get added to your collection. There's a pirate who pops up and you have to bribe with money you get from gems, otherwise he will sabotage you, e.g. by stealing resources or setting a building on fire.
Overall, the game was very satisfying and addictive and I ended up playing the whole thing (including getting all the artifacts and gold on all the levels) in a couple of days. :)

Another 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. After playing Island Tribe 1, I tried Island Tribe 2 and found it similar and also fun to escape with. I found Island Tribe 2 just a bit better than Island Tribe 1.

I read the reviews before playing this game and they were pretty accurate. It is fun, and exciting. Time goes by so fast, I find Ive been playing for hours. Get it you will enjoy.

My complaints with this version of Island Tribe are that it was way too easy and way too short,
I had plenty of time left over at the end of each round, and I finished the game pretty quickly. I played Island Tribe 3 and that is MUCH better, so much more challenging and takes a lot longer. I might have liked this version it if I hadn't played #3 first, they definitely improved it with Island Tribe 3.

Great Game, would have given it 5 Stars IF it had a "No Timer" Option.
