Star Wars: Episode I - The Gungan Frontier
Description official descriptions
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.

When you play this game you will certainly be reminded of SimLife. It's nicely angled towards the younger set; absent are the genetics experiments of SimLife, instead you deal primarily with balancing populations and predator/prey relations. You also have the added factor of a "human" (okay, gungan) population that wants to take flora and fauna for construction and eating. You have to make sure they're happy, but at the same time critical populations don't get wiped out.
The balancing can get tiresome at times, and there's little variety to the gameplay. It's keeping each side in check at all times. If you like micromanagement, then it'll be your cup of tea.
The Bottom Line
An introduction to strategy games worth checking out.

A bunch of the creatures in the game are named after developers of the game. For example, the daggert is named after Todd Daggert.
