Island Tribe 3
Keeps up with other games like it.
This is a good game, but nothing new in its genre. It is entertaining and easy to get the hang of. A feature that I liked was that at the beginning you can select your difficulty level, all the way from novice to expert. I played on normal and found it easy but I have played many of these types of games.
The graphics are nothing special. If anything, on my larger monitor, they came across as a little grainy. I am sure that is more to do with the size of the characters and objects than anything else.
All in all, it was a fun hour demo for me. In the levels I played I didn't come across anything that struck me as new but if you have enjoyed the previous titles you will enjoy this one as well. A good time killer.

Better Than Ever
If you liked the first two Island Tribe games you are going to love this one! Unlike some game designers, the designers of this series are not content to sit on their laurels and bring in the bucks by skating through sequels. There is always something new in this series, and this time is no exception. For example, there are new items in the landscapes of Island Tribe 3, but most of all there are new tasks that are very funny. Wait until you see the islanders rolling the crocodile - I laughed out loud!
The challenge levels are great, the game is fun, and it's definitely worth the money!

Completed the game quite quick? - Try the Hard mode for more of a challenge
I have completed this in Normal Mode, but I am now playing it again in Hard Mode.
This is for the expert who wants to be able to work out how to complete each level within the green time bar using all optimising as best possible.
It takes many tries, sometimes even a few days before I crack the next level, it as it is tuned to the absolute second.
You get a lot more play value out of it and it is very rewarding when you finally manage it.

Really Like it
I do not like TM games, but was reading reviews and read that Island Tribe 3 you can set on untimed mode, which I did. I've never really understood TM games, but since this was untimed, and I wasn't so worried about what to do, I had time to figure things out and how it works. I can honestly say this is the first TM game I have liked. I've tried others, but not quick enough to figure them out. I switched from HOG to M3 games, and with this type TM games, I would play more. Again, if you've never played a TM game, it might take a little time to figure out everything to do, and how it works. There was one area I couldn't get any of my "help" to come out of the house. Finally figured out I had to click on an empty spot to start them building. It's funny, I find myself sitting here saying "go get the fish" -- "get the fire out" "hurry up, build a sawmill" - and on and on. So if you've never tried a TM game, this is probably one to try as you can played untimed. The longer I play the more I kinda catch on. But I don't think I'll ever play a TM game that is timed. I'm also the same way about M3 games. I do not like them timed. Now I do find the TM games kinda get my heart rate pumping more, even though it's untimed, because trying to control all these characters is fun. You find yourself talking to them.

A Refreshing Change
This game is not overly complicated.
It has 44 Levels which is a good amount.
It does not have levels where you are blinded. You are able to complete each level.
I played all the way through in Normal mode and found some of the levels more challenging as the game went on but was able to finish all with Gold.
I recommend it as a great edition to the series.

The first time you play it, it will be exciting because there are so many things that you can do - and at first, you're only going to have so little time. But once all your stats are maxed, your equipment and other things bought, and once you've reached the top of your career everything becomes incredibly repetitive. I managed to finish the game less than four hours. It was fun while it lasted, yes, but I wish there's a sequel to it or something.
I will recommend playing it only because it is fun game, but I seriously would not recommend buying a full version of it.

I am a huge fan of Island Tribe series - I played them all!
I think that the 3rd part is the best one so far. It is an old good story: save your love which was stolen by the evil forces. Thank you devs for such a sweet storyline!
You have to perform a variety of tasks along the way. A new challenge each and every level makes Island Tribe 3 just awesome and if you ask me it's the best game of its kind!

So much fun!
I love the Island Tribe games and this one might be the best of the 3. The object is to clear the road, collect resources and usually perform some different type of task on each level. There are hidden artifacts to find, gems to collect, etc. Anyone can play from kids on up because difficulty can be customized (hard, normal, easy and no timer). Fantastic series, hope to see more.

One of, if not my favorite Big Fish Game!
It's one of the few games that developers really fleshed out. It's very nicely balanced. It's common to get a game in this genre that is a mess of rapid clicking on popup resources, or a bit of a snoozer as you wait for your workers to accomplish tasks. This one is a gem, the gameplay is smooth, you'll experience that zen of busy, that's not going to cramp your main mouse button finger or leave you staring at your screen waiting. An awesome job, my hat off to the developers.

Another great time management/strategy game
At first, this game looked too simple and the graphic representation of the work-people (man and woman) seemed a notch down from the Roads of Rome game. But then after playing this game more and more, I stopped comparing and enjoyed this game for what it is...for strategists and time management gamers, this is a good game. It also gets more complex as you progress to higher levels.
