Earlier this year, Gameloft released Ice Age Village, a free-to-play social game based off of the popular Ice Age movie franchise. With the next movie in the series, Continental Drift about to release in theaters, a big update incorporating the movie has been released. Players’ islands have been set adrift on an iceberg, and they must ward off pirates as well, something I’m sure the creatures of the actual ice ages had to deal with. There’s 26 new quests featuring characters from the new movie, with new animals to raise, and new buildings to build like a volleyball court (wooly mammoths were known for their volleyball expertise). Play the game obsessively, reaching the max level? Then good news, the level cap has been raised to 60, and the maximum village size has doubled! Continental Drift doesn’t release until this Friday, June 13th, but the update for the game is available right now.

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.
