This game's held up very well over the last few years. The graphics and ambient soundtrack are the first attention-getters: they're both exquisite even given the game's age (hey, 3 years is forever in game years!). But then the cute little villagers start moving and the excellent tutorial begins, and you're hooked.

The player commands a group of villagers as they try to fix a broken transporter to get home. While they work to accumulate resources like wood and stone, they must survive their environment by building houses and working on farms and, when it becomes glaringly apparent that it'll take considerable time to fix the transporter, by breeding. As they slowly accumulate knowledge, they learn how to tame the region's animals, make potions from the native plant life, and make tools to help them in their long-term goal. Each villager has a work preference, so if you make them work at that job they go faster; each villager also has an astrological sign and prefers mates from complementary signs--but in an amazing burst of foresight, the game designers make both of these things changeable if needed. Gemini Lost is surprisingly complex for a little casual game.

There is absolutely nothing in this game that a child shouldn't see. No cursing, no sex, no violence. It's completely unobjectionable. The villagers must marry before they can scamper off to a hut to vanish and procreate. It's one of those Virtual Villagers type of games where it'll run in the background even after you log off, but does include a "pause" setting so you don't need to worry about huge surprises if you don't want them and prefer micro-management. If you need a cute little strategy game and liked Virtual Villagers, you'll love Gemini Lost.

I absolutely love this game. It involves raising a village of people and helping them find their way out. You'll need to learn skills (like woodcutting and farming), and find parts to a broken teleporter to get the whole group back home. Each adult chooses his/her mate based on their zodiac symbol. I've gotten hours of gameplay from this game. I've played it several times over. Highly recommended!

I LOVE THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!! The only thing I don't like is that at the end it says,"To Be Continued," and there's no Gemini Lost 2.

My family and I enjoy this game, but I wish it would go on longer. I would like to build more things, have more challenges, potions, etc. I think the game is pretty and it teaches you a few things. (like you have to work or you are going to starve!)

This was just plain boring and I don't recommend it. It was too easy, too repetitive and just ...well, boring
