Description

You are given the task of creating a new ecology for Gungan colonizers. In this game much like SimLife, you decide where to put creatures in the new world. You must juggle things so all of the creatures are well-fed, there is no over-population, and most importantly that the Gungans are living in harmony with the other species.
