Virtual Villagers 5 for Negative User Reviews

Fun game with a bad messageNow, I love this game with all my heart and I played it for hours nonstop. My only issue is what the game is really about. You have to convert local islanders to your faith. I find this very disturbing an giving off the wrong message. It is wrong to judge someone based on their faith. They weren't bad people because at some point the children of your village will play with the "enemy". I just don't see this as politically correct..Version: 1.0.0

Great to pass the timeWas really fun and stayed up until midnight waiting for things. But the next morning my 300 food was all eaten and I had nothing to do. It is fun for a while but don't bother buying..Version: 1.0.0

Ok but miss the old games styleNot like the old versions at all which is ok as it's a great idea but so hard to keep everything going to begin with as you need to be constantly keeping the heathens off you to get anywhere in the game. All in all good though.Version: 1.0.0

RidiculousThis game could have been great, but it is way too time consuming, the advancement in technology is way to expensive and when I left my villagers for 2 days, they all died. I don't understand the logic put into this game..Version: 1.0.0

Don’t do itThe UI is badly designed,it’s unclear in what do to and how to do thing you drag and drop people on to thing to make them do things but half the time they just stand there and nothing gets done..Version: 1.2.0

Thumbs downI work two jobs and can't play this game everyday. My villagers all died. I am very disappointed that I would have to start over. I play the dream house game and they don't die if I don't play everyday. If they do die then I get a new generation. I am so mad that I bought this game and now I will be deleting it. I wish it was more like the other game. Each action takes way to long and sometimes confusing..Version: 1.0.0

FbsGlitch when try to beat up rhe master builder.Version: 1.0.0

DONT PAYIts a amazing game and ive played it on the computer before but on the ipod u cant even play a couple of minutes without it crashing and restarting the game. the company never puts out updates so right now u just have to deal with it i cant even use it anymore. dont bother paying for it youwill just me disipionted the u spent ur money on something that doesnt work.Version: 1.0.0

AnnoyedI am a fan of all virtual villager games I've purchased each one and loved them. This however is the most annoying game ever, it kicks me out after a few minutes. I've contacted the makers and told them of my problem but no response or improvements made. Would think again whether to buy another one. Sort out the crashing and I will write a better review..Version: 1.0.0


CrashingEvery time I use the lightning spell, it causes the game to crash (it'll crash on its own too). I used the lightning spell to scare off the heathens from the blocking totem and the game crashed. When I opened it back up, there was a big group of heathens repairing the totem and not enough energy to use the spell again! That is very lame and frustrating so please fix the crashing!.Version: 1.0.0

FullIt’s an ok game and works well enough but even with a decent number of villagers it takes too long to get tech to move on. I have 7 master scientists, 5 children, plenty of food been 24 hours since I last took down a totem or solved problem- everything else seems to require more tech points - so what’s the point of playing it if there is nothing to interact with. Started ok but rapidly got dull ( even though I persevered past having a mass wipe out when heathens stole all my food and left me with only 1 man, 1 x 14 yr old boy and a little girl)- got to say what was the point of that wipe out too? No skill to be able to prevent it as too early in game - just added pointless hour waiting for girl to grow up. ( also have speed at max now for last 24 hours).Version: 1.2.0

Constantly crashingGame crashes near constantly, needs fixing. Would not recommend until fixed..Version: 1.0.0

Fun... But has some problemsI love all the virtual villagers games! This one is the most interesting of all of them. There is one problem with my game though. Every time I dismantle the Knowing Totem and leave the app, when I come back it's as if it never happened. I have dismantled it about 4 times now and it's getting pretty annoying..Version: 1.0.0

Too many bugsHeathens are annoying. and when I try to use time warp on my master builder during a build off , he disappears and runs off and does something else! I give up after trying three times.Version: 1.0.0

Terrible!The worst game I played on my iPod!.Version: 1.0.0

Get With The TimesI love the VV series. Every single one. So I feel horrible giving this one star review, but it had to be done. Everything in this game is top notch, except for two big glaring flaws. 1)Retina! Display! The game could be astoundingly beautiful if it had this. It would be beyond amazing. But it doesn't. It lacks what it should've had since VV3. 2)The ability to play our own music in the background. Their music is nice, but I would like to have a choice when I play the game..Version: 1.0.0

Please fixThis is a five star game, but because of the constant crashing its only one star..Version: 1.0.0

Need graphic updatesThe game needs some updates. The graphics are way too blurry and grainy. I squinted so much that I felt nauseous after playing for 10 minutes..Version: 1.0.0

Crashes:(I played and loved this game untill the second day I played it. It only opens to the loading page then it gets to the 99% mark- so close to starting but then the screen just turns black and goes to my home page. I have the iPhone 3Gs but its a hand me down so the power button does not work. I cannot reset it. Please please with cute little monkeys and bananas on top fix the horrible bug!!! Come on last day of work! You sell my favorite games! Don't be an old sponge with hair growing off it! (quote from psych)iu LDW!!!!! Dont fail me now!!!!!! .Version: 1.0.0

CrashesHaven't even been able to open it yet crashes straight away!!!.Version: 1.0.0

Good game, needs fixing.I enjoyed this game alot and i played it alot up until it did not continue to load any further than the loading screen. The game itself is very good and can entertain you over a large period of time. However, since downloading this app, my iPod (3rd Generation) has been crashing numerous times while playing other apps, even on Safari and the App Store. Due to downloading this game, many apps no-longer work and niether does this one. I regret downloading this app, let alone paying £1.49 for it. Unless this app is updated soon and the bug fixed, I will be forced to delete this from my iPod. Overall, I am disappointed..Version: 1.0.0

Hard puzzleSo I’ve completed most of the puzzles and I’m on level three for all the tech stuff. But how do I beat the heathen builder? I’ve tried many times and used the time warp, but my villager doesn’t seem to be going faster. I’ve tried using bees first to stop the builder from getting to the challenge, but he doesn’t acknowledge when my villager wins. Am I supposed to use time warp twice or something? And yes I’m using a master builder..Version: 1.2.0

Manipúlate Time LapsesBecause you need a Master Scientist in order to gain access to the crops, another source of food after the bush no longer provides fruit, they make the process take EXTREMELY long, even on “Fast” play. My other villagers have mastered tasks like farming and healing, but my two adept researchers are approaching master status slowly. It’s unfair because with the bush producing no crops, your healthy villagers start to die. You have to just hope your adept scientist don’t die before mastering science, if so, you’re back at square one. This is the worst time lapse version of the game Ive ever played..Version: 1.2.0

It has potential...I would love it - if if didn't crash every time I open it! Please fix this! Also it's really hard to get enough tech points before the noni berries run out... They should have more supply or get tech points more easily..Version: 1.0.0

To hardI can't get started its too hard everyone dies before I get any progress.Version: 1.0.0

LeeGreat game, but randomly loses sound. First lost the voice over the music. Also game randomly shuts down. I don't think it's worth the money utill these bugs get fixed.Version: 1.0.0

Plz fix😢😢😢😢I had worked so so hard on this game by completing all of the puzzles and getting the best I could but it deleted the whole thing and restarted it. I was crying a lot. 😭😭😭😭 plz fix. I got lucky on the first try but not on the second. I'll rate it better when you do. Also it seem to be frozen at the moment. I'm also scared it might restart again. Please fix this bug ❌❌❌❌.Version: 1.0.0

Too time consumingFun game and all but holy hell it takes forever to do like what the hell. You have to wait human hours for anything to happen and then you end up waiting so god damn long you forget about the game and everyone dies. It's too hard. I've been playing this game for years now and I've NEVER FINISHED IT its crazy hard. If it didnt use real time it'd be soo much better but this is ridiculous. I want to actually finish before forgetting about it altogether... It's lame. I probably wouldn't spend more money buying any other games... Waste when they sit uncompleted for years.Version: 1.0.0

What the heck??!?!?This is a great game all you people reading this get it! but look out for something...   so I was doing great with the game I had plenty of people plenty of food. I already built the statue had 4 new believers and knocked down a totem.  then i left it alone for two hours. any other villagers game was fine. then when I come back, what does it say? EVERYONE WHO BELIEVED IN YOU HAS DIED! How could  people die with  food? I have no idea? and in two hours no less! unless the orange  heathens started killing people, thats not posdible. i checked my free version too. Same thing!! also my virtual families 2 broke! IF I START OVER AND IT HAPPENS Again I'm going to delete this game. It's not fun to have your game die for NO REASON! so please fix this and I will be happy and rate it four stars again..Version: 1.0.0

Please update!I love this game and all the rest but i was playing this game until my battery died and when my iPod 5th gen came back on after 10 minutes i opened the app and all my villagers had died only after 10 minutes please fix this and it would also be nice if it could be in HD and the buttons were bigger because i have fat fingers. Only in vv5 were the buttons to small..Version: 1.0.0

CRASHES !!!!Played it for half an hour and closed it, now whenever I try to open it crashes immediately.Version: 1.0.0

Throws me out!!The game throws me out before I even get to choose my villagers! Very annoying!.Version: 1.0.0

UpdatePlease update this game i used to play it all the time in 2011 and i just rebought it. i'm disappointed it's so old and the only updated game was Virtual villagers origins. i wasted money because it's so old but please update your games i love the series.Version: 1.0.0

Bugs and bad designI used to really like this series of games, but #3 was the last I was able to complete on iOS due to gamebreaking bugs in 4 and 5. The buttons in this one are ridiculously tiny. It's like they just ported it from PC without considering that tiny buttons are nearly impossible to hit correctly on a small iPhone screen - it takes me 4 or 5 tries when I want to set a skill preference, and forget the little arrows to scroll between villagers. I also encountered a bug where the time warp power does nothing but drain energy. It does not speed up the villager like it is apparently supposed to. This leaves two challenges permanently unbeatable. I had a similar problem in 4 where I could never cleanse the tree despite following steps exactly. I'm going to do the same thing now that I did then - delete the game and consider it completed. These games usually have great ideas but poor execution is becoming standard. I'm not going to buy any more of these since it's becoming a pattern to have some essential puzzle be broken by a bug. No fun :(.Version: 1.0.0

LAMEThis game was fun for maybe an hour...until I had just dismantled the totem by the research area and the game black screened and returned me back to my ITouch menus...and upon return I found I had to talk to the blue heathens all over again, and then dismantle it, AGAIN. This has already happened 3 times while playing for no more than 10 minutes. I wish I hadn't wasted the money on this piece of fecal matter- if I wanted to play with crap I'd go buy litter critters. (Saturday Night Live reference).Version: 1.0.0

ANNOYEDWas working great up until 5 minutes ago and now it won't even let me in no ammused.Version: 1.0.0

Time Warp power doesn’t work.I love these games, but they’ve broken over time. Thunder caused all my virtual villagers games to flash rapidly like a strobe-light, achievement messages disappear in a millisecond so you can’t read them, the smoke from the fire and houses block sight from anything behind it (this has been happening to all of my games) and now the worst glitch of all? Time-warp in Virtual Villagers 5 literally doesn’t work. Any character I use it on won’t speed up. They’re normal, regular speed and because of that I can’t beat the Master Builder in the competition. I honestly don’t know what’s going on. All these games used to work fine on my phone. I don’t anything will be done to fix these as it’s been years, but I still thought I should leave this review here. It’s sad to see my childhood games breaking down like this..Version: 1.2.0

BugI lost this game when I had the god power water. Then I started over and I unlocked the power that makes ur villagers fast. Now it says game over and I only have the water power. So that means my villagers went back in time..Version: 1.0.0

I love VV but not this versionThe heathens are annoying and it's too tedious to try to distract them in order to be able to do anything. Hate this version..Version: 1.0.0

Dirty colonisersUm...the villagers are meant to tear down the ‘heathens’’ temples and convert them?.Version: 1.2.0

CrashesThis ipod version CONSTANTLY crashes. I cant even finish the tutorial! Dont buy it until they fix the bug.Version: 1.0.0

Waste of moneyWhen I bought this game I thought it would be a fun game to have on my iPhone but apparently not... The game resolution on the screen makes it so it's impossible to actually play the game on the iPhone... Quite disappointed.. :(.Version: 1.0.0

Detail button = too small. It's a shameI have all the villages b/c I really enjoy the concept and the graphic are great, but I deleted this one because the buttons are amazingly small. I re-installed it after a few months, thinking the designers might have updated it, but no. I am really surprised with how small the buttons got with each village... especially the detail button. So, once again, I'm deleting this village..Version: 1.0.0

Okay..Okay, so I'm a huge VV fan, but the game won't stop crashing on me! It looks promising, but without an update to fix the crashing, it's a bit worthless. I can't even get through the tutorial.. I'll keep it in hopes of an update though. Update If you are having problems with the app use the "Report a Problem" button and let Apple and the Developers know what's going on!! I highly doubt that Last Day of Work actually reads their reviews...Version: 1.0.0

UGHI can't seem to figure out how to do anything in the game! I've played multiple types of this game and I don't like this one, you can't do anything in it and I've had to restart countless times because I can't get food for the people. Definitely not happy with wasting u money >:(.Version: 1.0.0
