New game from the creators of Farm Frenzy sends the player on a lighthearted journey to settle 40 magical islands
Alawar Entertainment has released Island Realms, a business sim game that sends players on a lighthearted journey to settle 40 magical islands, building bridges, laying down roads and protecting themselves against thieves. The player's goal in Island Realms is to help a group of happy-go-lucky colonists create a new home. While progressing through the game, the player will collect resources such as iron, stone and wood, purchase new technologies and develop a self-sustaining economy. Hostile natives will attempt to sabotage the colonists by stealing supplies, destroying roads and lobbing large stones at their buildings using catapults. In order to stop these attacks, the player can either fortify his settlement or earn enough money to purchase his own catapults and then destroy the enemy's stronghold. Island Realms offers several options for dealing with conflict: the user can defend himself, strike opponents first or distract enemy soldiers with the help of idols. A playable demo is now locally mirrored.
