EXCLUSIVE Bonus Levels
Integrated Strategy Guide
Moai V: New Generation is the latest installment in the long line of resource-management games. Moai has always been one of those series that we thought had the potential to be incredibly successful, but never quite got there. Well, New Generation begins a new era of Moai, one that is even more promising than ever before.
The first thing we noticed about Moai V: New Generation (apart from the gorgeous visuals, of course) is how challenging the game is. The game does not waste time with any complete tutorial or introduction and jumps right into full-fledged levels. Even on the first few levels, we were surprised at how challenging they were. Achieving the Gold medal on each level is no easy feat, you have to carefully plan your moves and strategize your actions. Players who feel a little overwhelmed by all these actions can switch to the Relaxed Mode with no timer.
Gameplay wise, Moai V: New Generation does break any new grounds, but still feels very polished. The game features a variety of resource types, some new and some not. As usual, there are tons of blocked paths, stations to repair, and trading posts run by greedy beings for exchanging resources. One feature that adds to the level of enjoyment in New Generation is the Backpack function, the ability to buy, equip, and change your character’s power-ups and special abilities.
As mentioned, the visuals in Moai V: New Generation are some of the best in the genre. The characters are multi-dimensional and perfectly-animated. The bold colors and the fancy special effects are just enough to spice up the game without overshadowing the actual gameplay.
Moai V: New Generation is offered as a Collector’s Edition, which includes bonus levels, a strategy guide, wallpapers, character biographies, soundtracks, and achievements.
