Brave Tribe 

 

My hubby told me about a new G5 Entertainment game that is not in the hidden object genre. My excitement level for Brave Tribe was high at first. I mean getting to do a Celtic town building game sounded like fun. What is down on paper and how it plays out are two different things.

All of us at Family Friendly Gaming have listened to our readers. We know the high level of disgust for free apps. We comprehend the comments about pay to play, and bait and switch in relation to free apps. We understand the short spurts of play these apps allow. We also understand the goal is to get more money from families than just paying the ninety-nine cents for a normal app.

I am playing Brave Tribe before it is released. But I believe this will be a free app. After playing for twenty minutes I was out of energy. I could purchase a resource to get me more. How could I do this? By spamming my Facebook page, bugging friends on Facebook, or spending real world money. I refused those choices and was no longer allowed to do anything for three minutes.

Five minutes later I ran out energy again. This time the game made me wait four minutes before I could do anything. This absolutely kills the flow of a game. As this kept happening, and time was being added to my wait - I could tell the point was clear. Allow them to advertise to my Facebook friends, or pay money. Yet it does not take long until you face the same problem again. The herky jerky game flow is a real problem.

Certain female characters in Brave Tribe could have used some more clothing. This app has an interesting visual look to it. I enjoyed the music, and all of the celebration sound effects. Brave Tribe has players farm so the village will have food. Fight off the Romans, and make friends with fellow tribes.

Brave Tribe could have been an awesome game. The whole free app model is what kills it. Ask players to pay a dollar or two, tweak the game play, and it would have been great. Somehow companies must be making money from these free apps because they are flooding the market. We read all the angry emails about free apps. Somehow it does not seem to stop them.
