With over 2.8 million Likes on Facebook – Tribez which is available for iPhone and Android users is making big waves on social media.
Created by Game Insight, The Tribez bills itself as ‘not just a game’ but an ‘adventure where you travel to a distant past full of secrets, mysteries and many hours of addictive discovery’.
It is in fact simply the latest variant on city building games like FarmVille, CityVille and FrontierVille, albeit with a very glossy coat of paint.
You play as someone from the modern-day who discovers a lost civilisation and must help it expand into an empire – this basically means lots of erecting buildings, leveling them up, gathering resources and growing your territory.
The competitive nature of the game and the temptation to keep leveling up mud huts into an almost unending list of structures is what is keeping people coming back, along with some crafty social media integration.
In addition to offering in-app purchases, the game often prompts you to share your progress on Twitter and Facebook, which is why you’re finding impersonal updates like this cropping up in your news feeds:
