The Tribez is a free-to-play iPad game where players take on the role of a lost time traveler who ends up in a primitive fantasy realm full of tribes. Gameplay for The Tribez includes building stone-age villages, exploring various territories, and leading a tribe that worships the player as a godsend.
The game boasts colorful graphics and high-quality music. The Tribez includes over 27 levels to explore across three different islands, more than 100 quests for the player to complete, 50 different buildings to create, and ten different humorous characters to interact with. Players even get a pet dinosaur that fights off opponents to the tribes and entertains villages.
The Tribez is free-to-play, but sells coins and gems to use in the game through in-app purchases.
In a move that’s not entirely unexpected, another popular Facebook title is being brought over to iOS devices. Bulkypix, in collaboration with Kobojo, are adapting PyramidVille for Apple devices. Dubbed PyramidVille Adventure this time around.
This is looking to be more than a mere straight port, however. While the developers have indeed carried the Ancient Egyptian city-building and citizen-gathering mechanics over, they’ve gone and added some new stuff as well. Players will be able to find special items that allow them to build special structures such as the Great Sphinx, as well as take part in a new collection of mini-games that can actually reduce the amount of real-time waiting required for various actions. And, of course, the entire interface has been redesigned for iOS with touch controls and the like.
Those looking to become the next Ramses (or Cleopatra!) will still have to wait a bit before they can experience the 6 million player strong Facebook phenomena on the go. PyramidVille Adventure isn’t set to come out for another month or so, towards the tail end of January. It’ll be free-to-play, and universal, so once it does come out there won’t be much of a reason to avoid it. Aside from the obvious ones like “free time” and “loved ones” anyway.
