    You shouldn't even give a try to this garbage. They promise you that it's a completely free game, but it's not. It has some extra points that you REALLY need to have for most of the game best "gameplay" points, but guess what? "Premium", does this remind you something? Yeah, exactly, you guessed right. It's the same purpose as premium contents on most of FreeToPlay games: make you PAY REAL MONEY to get some game special object. Also, the gameplay has no sense and is completely boring. There isn't a gameplay, nor a plot. Avoid this ... ehmm.. "game". Expand

    This game gave me a decent first impression as the sort of ongoing tycoon game being time based.
    The drawbacks of it being free to play are that of an energy meter that limits how much you can do, which only refills over time or by cash items. However the major flaw this this game lies in its lack of depth and sophistication. Its not really a game so much as it is a sort of ant farm or
    fish tank. It gets pretty boring very quickly with the lack of detail in the environment, or really any graphical impression whatsoever. You cannot move around to design or explore your "3d" habitat, and alot of the features in the game do not seem to work correctly. Example: i keep running into the problem of food chain carnivores that constantly give me warning notifications telling me i do not have enough abundant lower tier animals to sate their appetite, even though i spent all of my in game resources to buy massive herds of herbivores and fish eaters, which the tutorial told me i needed to feet these carnivores, yet having only a single lone carnivore still penalizes my equilibrium score because i "do not have enough animals to eat." For what little gameplay there is, this roadblock completely kills any progress or fun you might have found with this game. Unless that is, you pay money to buy the other species in the game, which serve no purpose other than to stand there..well. Like a dumb animal. I do not recommend this game to anyone because it really isnt that entertaining unless you really REALLY enjoy pointless micromanagement over time. Expand

    I won´t rate this as a game since i think is more like an app, but is an app i like to use!
    I must admit that i have spend hour upon hour buying, selling and maintaining my Ecolibriums
    Certainly not everybody will like it as much as i do, but if you haven´t tried it yet you should give this free application a chance.

  1. Whether you believe God(s) or not, you have always wanted to be one. Wouldn't it be great to invent strange creatures all day and decide which ones can live and which ones can't. Too bad it takes about just as long to create something in this game as it does in real life. Unless you pay up. [November 2012, p.92]

    It's hard to recommend a game like Ecolibrium to anyone but the most bored.

    Ecolibrium is deep and well designed but won't appeal a wide range of players. It's however a solid entry in the ever-growing compendium of PlayStation Vita's free games.
