Island Tribe 5
Highly enjoyable-not long enough
Love the smooth running of Island tribe.
The characters move speedily but not so fast that you can't see them.
Like the different islands and the different creatures-nothing not to like about these games.
Would have loved it to be longer and I miss the bonus chapters when you achieve gold throughout the levels.

Another great time with Island Tribe
Love me some Island Tribe 5. I love that it is not so hard that you want to just quit, but has the challenge that makes you play a level over if you don't make the top scores. Only complaint is that a couple of the levels make it almost impossible to find the extra stuff like the 3 pieces to make up the thingie (I don't know what it's called) and on another level, it is so far, impossible for me to find the extra thing that shows up on the left hand side when the level starts. I've tried 5 times and still cannot find it ... grrrrrr ... But, I know it's there and that is what make this game fun and challenging. Great job Island Tribe :)

Underwater Adventures For Our Heroes
BASED ON DEMO
Lively and light hearted, the new addition to the Island Tribe traditional feels like a breath of fresh air! I have been avoiding all previous Island Tribe games deliberately, because I was frightened I?d get hooked on the whole series. And it was definitely a near thing. This game?s story has great appeal, as well as all the features you could hope for in a resource management game. And lots of new challenges for the adventurous heroes.
SIGHTS & SOUNDS
The graphics are cartoon ? the game is cartoony ? but they look good and cheerful. The music seems to be the same track used by every game of resource management game I?ve played. The little Heroes dance around in their diving gear with ease, and are cute. And the underwater scenery is nicely done.
Our friend ?Researcher? has discovered Atlantis, but the Atlanteans discovered him, and now they hold him prisoner. The heroes take no time at all to resolve to rescue him. The initial levels cover their underwater adventures. And it is great fun. There are manatees and piranhas to drive away, kelp and crabs to farm, and, I?m amazed to find out, the ?traditional? sawmills to repair! In the deepest sea? Oh well, it?s fun, so we?ll pretend we don?t notice *grin*. The story promises a lot more odd characters and structures before we?re done.
Not having played the other Island Tribe games, I can?t tell you if any of these features are new, but here?s what I saw.
? 3 difficulty levels, plus an untimed mode
? Ability to queue tasks to get maximum efficiency
? Diamonds to find (although they?re all different colours)
? Artifacts that lead you to Researcher?s whereabouts
? Ability to replay every level immediately
? Book that displays Achievements, Collectibles (Artifacts)
? High Scores
? Challenging gameplay right from the very first levels
FAMOUS LAST WORDS
It probably says more about my inexperience with resource management games, than about the game itself, but I was stuck in the 5th level already (in untimed mode!), because I didn?t take into account that some structures consumed resources as well as produce them. I ran out of the available kelp with no more to find, and couldn?t complete the objectives.

Under the Sea
If you have played the other Island Tribe games, this one is quite similar. However, they are under the sea with new buildings such as a kelp farm and a pearl farm. You can click ahead which is great. You get different modes, such as untimed, etc. which is also a plus. I must say, Island Tribe 3 and 4 were my favorites. This one not so much. Not sure why. Seems they are more rushed, meaning the characters are racing all over like they did in the first 2 installments of this game. I like it anyway.

I had a lot of fun playing this game. The levels were easy, perhaps too easy towards the end but still fun. If you like time management, building games, this one is good.

On the 5th go-round, it's disappointing.
I am a fan of Island Tribe; I have all 5 releases and was excited to see this one. However, it took me little time to play the game out, with very little challenge. There is almost no new artwork to look forward to, the challenge is next to nothing, and the game over was quickly. This 5th release should have had 60 level before bonus levels, new and exciting artwork and challenges - but there was not of that. Overall, as a follower, I am disappointed and will not jump so fast to purchase on the next release from Realore.

Could have been a better challenge
I love time management games so when one comes available I pretty much buy it straight away, this game was the 5th game in this series and I have to say it did let me down slightly there was no challenge at all, I played the game in expert and I could have played for 5mins went and had a hr nap and came back and still had plenty of time to finish my level, it was crazy I had over half of my time left on every level! When I play expert I expect to have a play a few time to get it to that point! other than that it was fine, just like the others
