Virtual Villagers Origins 2: Puzzle 4 + Puzzle 5 (Text Only)

Image
Puzzle 4 - Kraken You need to complete puzzle 1, have level 1 construction and level 1 crafting (which means you must have upgraded construction and crafting once)
If you have not seen the blue-faced villager (probably if you have not followed the tutorial at the start), you have to do these: Drag an adult villager to the water buckets near the research table to collect waterDrag an adult villager to the cave to collect coalClick on the crafting hut and craft water and coal together (45 min)Drag an adult villager to the crafting hut and take the oil. The villager will bring the oil to the Kraken statue. So now, to complete the tutorial, drag an adult villager to the crafting hut for him/her to take fire to light the oil lamps.

Now you will need to find the eyes of the Kraken statue. They look like pebbles lol. One is at the bottom right of the island just below the reeds.


The other is below the mixing table beside the foot of the lava (and also above the field). To get this one, you nee…

Puzzle 3 - Crafting Hut

He/she will make a pickaxe out of the whale bones. The pickaxe will be near the anvil.Drag an adult villager to the pickaxe and he/she will chop the wood that is behind the crafting hut.Drag an adult villager who is a scientist (it will be written if he/she is a trainee, adept or master scientist) to the science board beside the research table. He/she will draw up plans.Drag adult villagers to the crafting hut to complete repairs.The crafting hut can now be used! Use it to generate new resources to solve the next puzzles. View the crafting and resources guide here. Note: You could complete repairs for the crafting hut before chopping the wood, but you would not be able to craft until the puzzle is complete. 

Random tutorial after puzzle 3 is complete (that will lead to p…

Hidden Secrets Free: Answers Level 1 - 7 (Text Only)

Hidden Secrets free is a game similar to Godtower where you have to key in the answers to the puzzles to solve it and move on to the next level. There are 6 levels in this free version and much more in the paid version, but I don't think I'll be buying the paid version because I'm a miser. Anyway do support the creator because it really is a great game!!

[Edit: I bought the app!!! Puzzles 8 - 14 here!]

Virtual Villagers Origins 2: Christmas Holiday Event 2017 (Text Only)

Image
For 2017, you have 17 days to make holiday lights.
To make the lights, you need to get glass and firefly.
LDW has very kindly given the formula for glass = fire + sand.

To get the necessary items (from my resources and crafting guide)
Fire = Either pick up pieces of burnt wood near the fire when it appears, or drag an adult to the dry wood pile on the left of the research area then pick up the pieces of burnt woodSand = Drag an adult south of the crafting house (also where earth and cactus are)Firefly = Drag an adult or child on the flying bugs with light
Rewards For 20 holiday lights, you get lavastones. 40 holiday lights and you get a holiday totem (very cute snowman!), and 80 holiday lights rewards you with a box. I'll update what the items do when I reach those milestones, I'm only at 10 lights!!! :/

Update (29 Dec): You get 50 lavastones for 20 holiday lights. I need to be faster!!
Update (31 Dec): You get the snowman totem for 40 holiday lights! The totem gives you bonus p…

Virtual Villagers Origins 2: FAQ (Text Only)

Image
1. What is the lemur for?
The lemur helps in going into the cracks to get items for you. You could get worms, magic, metal, and other random objects/technologies/food/lavastones in the cracks.

You could pay for the lemur's home for $13.98 to make his stay permanent. This could be very helpful if you are sick of gathering vines and crafting rope. Sometimes there are 50% discounts so you may also wish to wait for that.

2. Why is my island shaking?
This means that a crack is going to appear. Get your rope (craft vine + vine) ready for some goodness!

3. What is the yellow cloak for?
The yellow cloak (hanging by the tree above the love shack) can be worn by an adult villager who is master of all skills. The master villager is important in the later part of the game (solving puzzle 10 and 11) because he/she will be needed to craft plans to make the green and blue statues.

4. What is the heron doing?
The heron flies around and eats the poisonous frogs that make the villagers sick. You can a…

Virtual Villagers Origins 2: Tutorial + Puzzle 1 (Text Only)

You start the game by choosing 5 villagers, a good tip would be to:
Choose at least 1 male adult and 1 female adult (for mating purposes)Choose at least 1 child (to get child-only privileges like getting mushrooms or removing frogs)Try to get villagers who like running (saves time doing work)Villagers who like work are good too (so they don't stray easily)Conversely, try not to get villagers who dislike running or workI would make 1 child and make the other 4 adults  The story starts
In the wake of a volcanic terror on their home island, a group of survivors have set sail, seeking a new home. They discover Isola, a magical island paradise! Once home to a thriving society, now ruins and jungle! As their boat lands on the beach, a MYSTERIOUS MAN appears before them...

Virtual Villagers Origins 2: General Walkthrough (Text Only)

This is the newest addition to the Last Day of Work Virtual Villagers collection.
Just like all Virtual Villagers games, you play as "God" to solve puzzles and simulate life as a tribal community. I really love the vibes of the game and of course solving the puzzles!

What you can do in this game:
Move people around - Get them to do tasks Expand your community - Drag people of opposite gender above each other and hope they create offspring. It can be annoying to wait 3 hours for the child to be born, but it's definitely necessary to have more manpower and to avoid having no population.Build things Forage for items and resources - for children AND for adults (this is something new from other games!)Craft items - mixing, cooking, crafting, etc. I enjoy this very much, and I would like to think that crafting is a major part of the game.Research - the game will not develop unless you get tech points and constantly upgrade technologies, which sometimes can take forever to doExp…
