We've previously been given the first four in the series, but not the fifth (Moai V: New Generation) or the sixth (Moai VI: Unexpected Guests ).
Moai V: New Generation
In Brief
Moai V: New Generation is a resource management casual arcade game
The Game
Review 1
Moai V: New Generation is the latest instalment 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.

Review 2

If you’re in the mood for a resource management game that delivers all the satisfaction of the genre without feeling like another clone, Moai 5: New Generation is the game for you. The follow-up to the long lasting series continues the traditions of variety and enthusiasm to create an honestly engaging and thoroughly enjoyable experience. It’s the most fun you’ll have with a time management game without wanting to rip your hair out.

Every couple hundred years, a comet appears in the sky above the lost tropical island of Tapa-Tui. The priests hold the Great Ceremony during this rare event, asking the spirits for peace and prosperity in the years to come. One of the priests has fallen ill, however, and is unable to perform the ritual. Two young members of the tribe step forward to help, kicking off an epic journey across the island that’s filled with new friends and new challenges.

moai-5-new-generation-collectors-edition-screenshot2



Each level in Moai 5: New Generation starts with a bunch of blocked roads and an eager worker standing at the ready. Click to send workers out along the path to collect resources, shaking down bread trees for food or chopping up fallen trees for wood. In fact, you’ll have a lot of different resources to manage, including things like stone, ore, mana, and everybody’s favourite, coconut oil! Each one can be found in piles scattered across the stage, but you’ll also be able to set up farms and sawmills to generate resources every few seconds.

Moai 5 focuses on the give and take aspect of resource management games, then takes it a few steps further. Every action costs resources but also gives resources, meaning you’re always looking for a way to keep things balanced, even while you press forward. Trading posts let you swap piles of one resource for another. Many levels rely on these convenient fixtures to provide the necessary materials to win. You’ll also find yourself bumping into traders who want loads of resources in exchange for rare items. Every level has a set of goals, and in order to meet said goals, you’ll be doing a lot of swapping and searching.

moai-5-new-generation-collectors-edition-screenshot5


One of the more unusual aspects of Moai 5 are the main characters’ ability to equip items and use spells. You’ll come across each on regular occasions and be able to switch them on for some really nice boosts. How does increased stone production sound? Or faster workers? Or… both?!

Moai 5 is a peach of a game. Really, it is. It pulls in just the right amount of familiar aspects from the time management genre and gives you plenty of excuses to stay and play just one more level. There are tons of things to find and unlock, loads of levels, plenty of surprises, and some perfectly balanced stages that feel intense without being frustrating. And when the workers smile at you when they finish their jobs, you’ll get that warm and fuzzy feeling inside.

You can see a couple of video's of game play
HERE & HERE
Conclusion:
The positive - Refreshing gameplay that takes some departures from the genre norms, with lots of resources to manage, and lots of ways to manage them. The artwork is sharp and colourful. Negative aspects - Some of the clickable resources and items can be hard to spot.

The installer does work under Win XP, but the game does not. I have an ancient computer with Win XP as the main system. Win 7 (the second system) could not help because of the error message at the game start. Windows XP should be at any rate excluded from the supported systems.

Vladimir, I also had the Win XP problem, which I was partially able to get around with my usual Toomky Games fix of changing the game's shortcut to point to the game.exe file. This started the loading screens, however I then got an "Application exit error". Is this the same error you got in Win 7?

Tried installing the game directly from Toomky Games and had exactly the same problem... :-( A shame, because it installed and works fine on my Win10 x64 laptop...

JEDIGEG, this trick usually works on my WinXP but not this time. I see the system requirements on the game home page lists 1536MB RAM is required, even though it takes up less than 500MB hard drive space . I only have 2GB RAM but managed to get about 1600MB free, but still had the same problem as above. So there's something else going on either because of my lesser hardware specs or WinXP setup, but I've given up trying to find out...

Min,

Hi Min, please excuse the late reply. The trick JEDIGEG posted would normally be deleted because we are not supposed to allow such comments as it removes the browser redirections, which these free game sites rely on to be able to give the games away for free (part of the advertising revenue is split with the developer of the game given away); however, because I only saw it after the giveaway was over I left it in place for you to see (because it was unlikely anyone else would see it), but I will have to delete JEDIGEG's comment, now that you've seen and tried the trick/fix. Sorry it didn't work.

I've not used XP ever since Vista was released about 15 years ago. I've always upgraded when the new OS's have been released, but I have been intending to install my copy of XP onto an older computer so that i can play some games that will not work on the newer operating systems. In fact I'm going to make the computer a dual boot system so that I can install my copy of Win 98 and possible a copy of Win 3.1 with DOS. That last one will then enable me to play the hundreds of games now available from abandonware sites that require DOSBox to work.

I have this really cool Kayak game called Kayak Extreme that only works on XP, ME, Win 98 and older systems. Apparently it may be release don Steam and GOG soon, which is brilliant.

Have you checked the FAQ's thread over in the game discussion forums HERE?

JEDIGEG,

Hi G.
Sorry, I had to remove the main part of your comment; though I did leave it until Min had read and responded to it. Thank you for taking the time to help.

Unfortunately we are not allowed to mention 'it' because the trick circumvents the browser redirections you get with the games executable, which could affect the distributors ability to pay the developer of the game because each browser redirection that occurs when you close one of these free games down, earn the distributor advertising income, part of which is given to the developer for allowing the game to be downloaded free. If you follow through on the trick you posted, there would be no advertising income, so the developer would stop the free downloads.
Once any game pasts a certain time post release, revenue from sales drop significantly. Allowing the game to be given away free with adverts can actually earn the developer a decent income from it for much longer than the original commercial sales.

Whiterabbit-uk, thanks for your response, you'd better see my first reply to Vladimir where I indicate I was already aware of "the trick", so you may want to re-moderate that comment as well...! Unfortunately it's sometimes the only way to run a Toomky game on XP, despite them always listing it as a supported OS, so perhaps it's something they need to address...?

I don't know what the problem is with this game, I've never come across the issue before and it's not mentioned in the FAQs, where it gets through the initial loading screens but then when it gets to what should be the introductory game screen it throws up an "Application exit error" (both the GOTD and directToomky versions). But as JEDIGEG could get the game to run on his XP, it must be something to do with my hardware, or something different in my XP, eg. drivers, etc.

BTW, my desktop computer is a dual-boot Win98/XP, has been for years...! Still great for running older games like Doom and Diablo!

Min,

Hi Min, I too have to use that trick occasionally, but I do usually allow the browser to open at the end of the games just to support the developer. If it's a game I really like I'll either buy it or possibly already have it in my library. I buy most breakouts and shmups. Luckily I have enough disposable income to do that when I wish; though with a massive library of games, with at least a few thousand un-played games, I've been stopping myself from buying anything new for the past few years. At least using money from my accounts. I have quite a large inventory of spare
games in my Steam inventory, (some I got free for pre ordering games others I bought as potential presents when they were heavily discounted. I've managed to sell some of those over the past year to fund my obsession with games..

Recently one Steam community member offered me 100 TF2 keys for a particular rally game that was removed from Steam some years ago. I happened to have a spare key from a humble bundle from several years ago. It turns out there is a big market and bidding war for certain games that have been removed from Steam. That said, I'm a little conflicted as I don't like making profit from games; especially if the person really wants the game. The guy who offered me 100 keys (worth between £1.50 to £1.70 each after Valve have taken their percentage) is a trader, so he must have someone who will pay even more. When I was at university back in the mid 80's a friend was telling me how he only had two albums missing from his Frank Zappa collection. They were out of print and he really wanted them. It just so happened that I had one of the albums; a double live album. He offered me £50 for it, which back in the mid 80's was equivalent to around £160 now. I gave it to him for nothing; partly because he was a friend, partly because he really wanted the album and partly because I thought the album wasn't that good. I'd picked it up second hand for around £1. :)

Stay safe

I enjoy playing this type of time management games especially the fact that you can choose to play with or without a timer which suits me fine. I like the graphics and the way the game is put together. Defiantly keeping this one.
