In The Tribez & Castlez, players will embark on an epic journey to restore peace and prosperity to their kingdom. Players will build and fortify magic towers to protect their citizens from enemies like vicious Gobools, powerful Trollums, and other amazing creatures. They will also develop their nation economically by constructing sawmills and factories, cultivating grapes and eggplants, and breeding pigs and sheep. An enchanting soundtrack and gorgeous graphics will bring the game's fairytale version of the Middle Ages to life.
A couple of years ago, Russian game publisher Game Insight brought us the prehistoric village-builder The Tribez. In it, we took on the role of an adventurous scientist who helps a primitive tribe rebuild their village. In the new sequel to that game, The Tribez and Castlez, we once again don the scientist's lab coat, this time setting our sights on saving a medieval kingdom. Unfortunately, that change in scope is more or less the only way to differentiate the two games, which means Tribez veterans have little in the way of new experiences to enjoy in the sequel.
The Tribez and Castlez begins with the first game's mad scientist (at least I think it's him; he seems to have grown some hair since then) and his pretty tribal sidekick Aurora touching down in the middle of a medieval kingdom. Actually, they don't just touch down—they crash land Dorothy-in-Oz-like on top of a magical crystal. In one way, this helps the Prince of the realm since it sends a marauding army of greenskins running. In another, it causes problems for him since he then needs a significant portion of his kingdom rebuilt.
Being magically transformed from a scientist to a mage, you set out to help the Prince and his subjects by building structures, clearing land and collecting resources. This is where, if you've played The Tribez, deja vu is likely to set in. Read more »

Love The Tribez, but wish you had more of it? Consider your wish granted. Game Insight has just announced The Tribez & Castlez, the first spin-off from The Tribez which will send Aurora and the Professor to another world full of magic and medieval wonder in early 2014.
The game will still embrace The Tribez city-building ways, but with a fantasy theme rather than a prehistoric one. Dinosaurs are all well and good, but you can expect both dungeons and dragons this time around. And that’s not all – Game Insight has told us that players can expect everything from werewolves to Trollums (which I’m assuming is Tribez-speak for trolls OR a delicious nougat-filled candy).
No specific release date has been confirmed yet, but when The Tribez & Castlez does come out you can expect to play it on iOS, Android and Facebook. Read more »
