Call it frontier Sim City. This free download is a very primitive game that challenges players to build up a simple settlement virtually from scratch. This is done by issuing a stream of fairly monotonous orders to lumberjacks and other settler characters to collect resources that can be turned into upgrades. We found the game's interface to be dogged by glitches, resulting in some trouble with in-game menus and occasionally unpredictable reactions to mouse clicks. If you're able to overlook these bugs, as well as very simple graphics and sound, this can certainly be fun for a short period of time. Players should be forewarned, however, that the game is definitely primitive even by modern freeware standards.
