Game Recommendation: Simmiland
Ever wanted the power of God in your hands? To create or destroy in seconds? Well, welcome to Simmiland! Simmiland is a fun God simulator that lets you do just that. The decisions you make as God affect the environment and the people that worship you. This game can be downloaded from Steam for a mere five dollars.
This game’s graphics aren’t the best. It is super pixelated. If you are into pixel games though then you are going to love this game. It’s like you’re playing a game for the original NES.
The gameplay is easy enough to understand. You are given a handful of cards, and each card represents an action you can perform as God. Each action cost faith points. To earn faith points you will have to answer your people’s prayers. Let’s say someone prays for a berry bush. If you have a plant card you will be able to create a berry bush and earn a good amount of faith points.
Remember how I said that your decisions affect the environment and people that worship you? Well, I wasn’t kidding. You see there are many different types of cards, and you can use these cards in many different types of ways. Let’s go back to that plant card. If you place it on forest land and you will get a berry bush, but if you place that card on swamp land you will get a poison berry bush. Place that same card again on desert land and you will have created a cactus, so and and so forth.
Want to change the land? Different weather cards can create different types of land (forest, swamp, desert, snowy mountains etc.) I bet your wondering how your people will survive these conditions. Use a sample or inspect card and your people will start building houses and making tools to mine, cut down trees, and fish.
Tips and Tricks
Here are some basic tips and tricks to help you get started. Firstly, to create everything this game has to offer, don’t be afraid to experiment. Mixing cards with the different landscapes will help you discover everything in this game. If you feel like you need some help though then don’t worry, you’re in luck. Looking through the compendium and achievements will give you hints and clues as to what you need to do to discover new things in the game. When you do discover new things you will unlock an achievement and earn yourself some stars. You can then spend your hard earned stars in the card shop. The card shop may have cards that you already have, but don’t let that stop you from buying them. They may become useful when answering prayers.
Simmiland is a game like no other. I really loved playing it. It’s cool how the people and landscape react to the choices you make when playing different cards. Even if your not a fan of pixelated games you should still give this game a chance. For a small price of five dollars you can buy it on Steam. You won’t regret playing this game.
