Gameloft has released a new game based on the Ice Age franchise, with Ice Age Village. As the title somewhat implies, this is a simulation/social game, where players must try to build a home for all the ice-dwelling creatures that the movie series is known for. Not only do players try to complete missions, sidequests, and daily challenges by building up their village and visiting friends' villages, but they can also play mini-games featuring series main character Scrat. Villages can be shared either through Gameloft Live, or through Facebook. The game also boasts sneak peeks of the upcoming movie Ice Age: Continental Drift, which is sure to be hot! I apologize for the cheap pun.
This game explains why the Two Tribes-developed Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs game was pulled from the App Store; Chillingo lost the license to the property as Gameloft acquired it. While some gamers may grumble, fans of the Ice Age franchise may find this social game up their alley. It's available now as a free to play universal app.
