I have played this game about 80 times. I just need to know when you are coming out with a second and third game? I really do love this type of game.

The graphics are beautiful, and well defined. I found it easier to obtain various goals. The only draw back is when there are a lot of people that are the same zodiac sign and want the same opposite sign. And when one has an *old* computer it can be a drain in no time. But I enjoyed playing it.

Gemini Lost is another hidden gem I discovered thanks to recommendations by other reviewers. While I think it's worth playing for Funpass members, the relatively short time it takes to finish makes it hard to recommend as a buy. I completed it in two days. A twist on the "stranded on a desert island" theme popularized by Virtual Villagers and My Tribe, Gemini Lost involves searching for the twelve signs of the zodiac. Each represents a key for a machine that will transport each of them home. How this happened and how they know all this, well that's like trying to explain astrology. Characters can farm to increase food supply, perform science experiments to increase tribe knowledge, work by doing mining or woodcutting to increase the resources, or build the different houses and other structures the tribe needs like schools and hospitals. If you assign a tribemember to a task that is a "favorite", assigned randomly at birth, the tribemember performs the function faster than other duties. Once you rack up enough knowledge points from your scientists, you can unlock various tools and increase your skills (i.e. farming, construction, etc.). At the beginning, your choices may be made at random but as the game progresses it seems you are being led on a leash as the various skills you can unlock just happen to be the same ones necessary to complete a task which will unlock one of the zodiac keys. You can also create potions using a combination of various plants found in different areas. These potions will allow you to heal sick people, change their favorite profession, act as fishing lures for fishermen, and so on. The heal potions were necessary early on before you're able to build a hospital, otherwise they're rarely needed in the game. As elderly tribe members pass away, a gravestone appears where they were when they died. To repopulate, tribe members gather in a special area (you can see in the first screenshot) once you ring a bell. Each character has a different zodiac sign and they are most compatible with two other signs. Pick a person who doesn't have one of these two signs and they won't fall in love. Pick a mate with a compatible sign and they will talk for a few seconds then run off to the shack and have babies. Yep. Just to nitpick, I noticed the developers didn't do their zodiac homework because the signs in the game don't match what astrologers really believe are compatible matches for the different zodiac signs. Anyway, the game is fun to play and it hooks you into wanting to see what happens when all tasks are completed. It's not like creating a civilization or dealing with resource management much. You just need to make sure there's enough food available and enough wood and stone available to make the different tools and buildings. All of these are easy tasks to complete, especially if you assign "favorites" to each task. By the end of the game I was overloaded with supplies and I'm pretty sure no one starved. I ran into a few annoyances. First, every time I got a notice (i.e. a baby was born), it took up the entire screen and blocked me from doing whatever I was in the process of doing, forcing me to start over. It gets really annoying toward the end of the game when you have a big tribe and babies being born left and right. Secondly, I ran into a strange problem with a disappearing yellow moth or butterfly I was supposed to collect. It'd appear, then disappear before I was able to grab it. The biggest problem is the game is just too short. I think I was able to finish it in maybe five hours of total gameplay. Better value than a movie ticket, but hard to compete against many of the other titles here at Gamehouse.

I found this highly addictive and couldn't stop playing. Actually quite sad that I was dying to get home to see how my villagers were doing... LOL. I'd tried other games like Virtual Villagers and My Tribe but didn't get hooked. This has a better interface and every building you build, research point you earn, puzzle you complete etc is progressing the village and leading you to the final outcome. You have finished the game when you have teleported everyone home but you can choose to keep playing and advancing your village or you can start over. Even though you know where all the zodiac keys are, experiment doing things a little differently - it isn't necessary to do things in a specific order. Give the trial a go, an hour is more than enough to suck you in if this game is for you.

This game was ok. It's too slow for me though. Took awhile to finish, but only because it took so long to gather stuff. Probably won't replay it, although it would be good for kids.

This game is very easy. I would not classify this game as a time management, but more as a puzzle. Being that it is a puzzle, it does not allow for replay, and is often quite boring. I did enjoy playing it, but it only lasted me 2 days of casually playing. Seeing as it is a puzzle, it is not something I would pay for, since replaying it is not really enjoyable. It is definitely not worth the $7 I paid for it.

It is only addictive because you want to see where this game is going. I play time managemnet games because I love them. I really don't think this falls under what I consider a time management game. I found it to be boring and finished it quickly. There are two puzzles which made me think but outside of that... nothing about this game would make me suggest this to a time management game fan.

This game is Good but too short. The characters are born and die quite rapidly if you leave the game for even half an hour somebody has died of old age and another villager has been born so be careful to pause game if your going to be away for long. The game has a few puzzles but mainly you teach the villagers to survive as a community until they can make it home.

This is a great game! The premise is that you have a bunch of people who are stranded and need to find their way home again. It's a tribe type game but unlike Virtual Villagers, this game is everything you found yourself wishing for while playing VV. The game moves at a good speed. Your people learn skills and when a job is their favorite, they are extra speedy at getting it done. You marry people with complimentary astrological signs and have children. There are lots of special items to build and unlock. There are a few puzzles required but they are doable by all, nothing you'd have to resort to looking for cheats to accomplish. The game is quite addicting - you feel driven to complete new items and unlock additional wonders to build, just to see what that will lead to. A lot of the island is locked off until section by section, you accomplish what is needed to progress on. I really loved this game and hope they follow it up with a sequel.

Short game, fairly easy to complete. The graphics are good as well as the game play. Not sure about the desire to replay the game again.

At first...I thought of Virtual Villagers...but once I got going, about 5 minutes in, I realized that THIS game can be played by the working folk, that are not attached at the hip to the internet...lol! When you leave your little village (a.k.a go to work or bed) you must choose the level at which they will fend for themselves. EVEN...pause! Fancy THAT! The fast growing generations is a PLUS as well :) To sum up, this has the "taste" of V.V. without the headaches, frustration, or neediness of V.V. the only NEGATIVE aspect...the children...they have ADULT voices...what is THAT about? Haha!

The game seemed really cool at first - you're running a civilization, completing quests, etc. and then it just goes into a lull. There doesn't seem to be any direction and if you're lost as to what to do next, you're on your own. (Which means sitting around doing the same thing over and over again until you get enough research points to move you ahead) Great graphics. I wouldn't buy it again though - only fun for the first hour or two.

I enjoyed this game. I think it's more along the lines of a puzzle game too. Some of the puzzles we got stuck on and it took awhile to figure them out. I probably won't replay this game, but I enjoyed it while I was playing it

I work in IT, so I stare a computer all day, but I still have an addition to games. Most of them stress me out at some point. This one never did. An original story line with a combination of mini games and time management. This and Muriel's Magic have a relaxing feel and soundtrack.

This game is very much like Virtual Villagers, but much sweeter and engaging. I especially liked how you matched up your mates by their astrological sign. I honestly stayed up WAAAAY later than I should have two nights in a row just because I couldn't stop playing.
