Villagers: The Secret City is the third chapter in the award-winning Virtual Villagers series from the creators of Fish Tycoon and Virtual Families. This is the same game that became a best-selling Windows and Mac sensation!

Care for and nurture a tribe of little people by teaching them the basics of survival. Grow a small village in your iPhone: your little villagers have food needs, housing needs, technologies to research and diseases to fight! As the tribe grows and prospers, the villagers become curious about the ruined city they have discovered and the secrets it holds.

The game continues to progress in true real time, even when your iPhone is turned off, so don’t forget to check in regularly to care for your tribe, help them gain skills and technology, and enable them to discover the secrets that lay waiting for them. How will you lead your tribe?

Virtual Villagers 3: The Secret City reviews and comments

It soothes the mind - who would not like to be there? It is almost a paradise but it takes long to achieve things and it is a bit addictive. The progress is easier to achieve than in the previous versions and there are some improvements - you can transport more than one collectibles at a time, they appear more frequently, they mean sth. The fog has artifacts - straight small lines travelling with it but apart from that it is beautiful! I rarely play anything apart from Ticket to Ride and other board games but this is a beauty.

Hello, the Game itself is a very ingenious Game-whoever knows and likes the first two Parts will like this one too. You have Inhabitants who have to solve small Puzzles in order to preserve themselves, i.e. to find ways to educate yourself technologically, get enough Food, etc. This is a nearly Real-time Game, so you can't play it for 3 Hours, but People then play on their Way (if you haven't pressed on pause). In Some cases, you also have to wait sometimes 7 Hours until a Tree Bears fruit again to be harvested. Why there are only two Stars of mine is because the Game keeps crashing, with me already, when the Iphone goes into standby mode, if you want to enter the Menu, etc. In Some cases I had to achieve Achieved goals repeatedly, because the Program had not saved this, but the Time is still running out as it depends on the Watch on the Iphone. And let's be honest, as long as that's not fixed, the Money is mislinked into this Game. However, there is also a PC and Mac version of the Game that does not have these Interruptions.
