Aargh! Thar' be spoilers ahead! Take heed!
OK, I realize that there are many, many people out there that love the Virtual Villagers series, but after a second go at this line I just don't get the attraction.
The game is filled with completely ambiguous, non-logical puzzles (at two points you have to drop one of your beloved villagers - not just any villager, mind you, but a specific one - straight into a bonfire to complete a puzzle. Now wait a tic... I love my villagers! Why the heck would I try, multiple times, to throw them onto a burning pyre?)
Also featured is the much appreciated 'try-and-fail' mechanic regarding a slew of alchemy potions, (most of which are detrimental to your villagers, and only a couple of which directly progress gameplay).
And to top it off a storyline is offered that can be summed up in about one paragraph, if not one sentence.
The game is full of contradictions:
The fire helps your villagers! (but let the fire burn out)
Alchemy is essential! (but ingredients are meaningless and most concoctions will hurt you.)
Look for collectibles! (to achieve pretty much the worst reward possible).
If you do enjoy this style of game, I would strongly recommend that you try 'The Promised Land'. It has somewhat similar mechanics, except there's much more to do, much more fun to be had, and most importantly, things make bloody sense!
