Ice Age Adventures takes all the excitement and humor of the cartoon film series and turns it into a game that is suitable for both younger and older fans of the franchise. This game is a sequel to Ice Age Village, but it includes some new elements that set it apart from its predecessor.

The game puts you in the shoes of Sid, the same adorable character from the film series. It's your job to track down animals that went missing and to find them on islands hidden around the central island that you live on. Each time that you find those animals, you can bring them back, help them find a place to live and provide them with food. You can also upgrade their homes, buy decorations from them and even construct new buildings around your town.

While you might think this sounds easy, the game actually is fairly challenging. You only have a limited amount of energy to perform tasks. When your energy runs out, you need to either wait or buy acorns to get more energy. Buying acorns will also let you purchase exclusive decorations and renovate or construct buildings faster. It takes real money to buy those acorns, and you may find that the game suggests those purchases too often.

Once you locate a group of animals, you must place a mini-game to unlock those characters and bring them back. The most common type of mini-game that you'll encounter is a "match-three game." This game shows you a screen filled with symbols and asks you to match three or more like symbols to advance. You may need to hit a certain score or complete a challenge in a specific period of time to move forward. You can also play a racing game that puts you on a sled and sends you down a hill. You score points based on what you do in the race and how long you last.

As you advance in this game, you can unlock all the top characters from the film series. Those characters will then help you complete certain adventures, unlock new islands and save more animals. Fans of any age will love unlocking characters and seeing their favorite characters in Ice Age Adventures. Integrate the game with Facebook to share your top accomplishments online.
