The Promised Land
Detailed, beautiful and fun storyline, but not the game for me.
I played this on trial version, and while I enjoyed the trial, I don't think I'll be buying it.
What I LOVED: The design and graphics, the background music, the interesting storyline. This is a well thought-out game, more detailed than most.
What I liked: Gameplay--easy to learn, tie nicely with the storyline. Each characters are well thought out, having their own likes and dislikes, quirks etc.
What I didn't like: I felt like it was a slow-moving game. You cannot decide where to build your buildings as the locations are pre-selected by the system. The mini-game of defeating the pirates a la angry birds was just not up my alley.

I am not a big fan of pick up and drop off people to get them to do chores. I prefer to have the whole screen on display so that I can see what is what and to not have to squint to see my workers. But the graphics are cute, sound is pleasant and fighting pirates in a mini game is just fun. not sure if i will buy it because the constant scrolling around is just not my thing.

Good Fun, But Frustraton Brings Down The Rating
I liked this game at first, but some really annoying things brought down the rating.
The graphics are pretty good, great designs and very modern.
The tasks were fun and a great challenge for me.
The game was actually pretty fun to play.
The game is sims like. You start off with 5 people and have to build an entire colony.
The tutoral was good, but some parts of it confused me a little and I had no option to skip it.
Particular parts of the gameplay were confusing. I'd either need to find something and I didn't know where it was, or the symbols were confusing me.
The map should've been way more clear than it was. There should've been something to indicate where to go for your next task or something.
Some tasks were timed, which in my opinion, took away the freedom of the game.
Despite these things, the game was actually prett good. I'll recommend it.

Too Many Interuptions
There really wasn't much of a challenge. There was nothing to discover on your own. The pop-up windows were a distraction.... too many, too often. If you're looking for a game that is similar to Virtual Villagers - this is not for you.

Bad graphics and difficult to move around
Most importantly it was no fun.

Same same but same
Same game as all the other with a slightly different storyline. Just grind away for hours without having to think....kind of annoying really. I liked the angry birds ripoff addition for the pirate attack though. Broke up the monotony.

Cute, Too Short
This is a cute game and I enjoyed playing it, but it took only about 10 hours to finish, wasn't very challenging and has very annoying pop-ups. This isn't a game you can play, go do some chores and come back with everything going. When the pop-up comes up (quite frequently) it stops the game and doesn't go away until you click it. I wouldn't purchase again or recommend.

It takes forever to build up resources mostly at the beginning and then at different stages throughout. I like the little characters and the pirate mini game.

Great game EXCEPT...
I loved this game! But I had to give it an overall poor rating due to the fact that it has no zoom feature at all. Having to pick up and drop the characters is fine, but not to be able to see where you need to go without going all over the place was really the deal breaker for me. Sorry. If the devs of this game ever change that, let me know and I will reconsider buying this game!
