OK, so you're the king of the forest - make that rainforest. Now what are you going to do? You'd better decide fast because there are miners, poachers, petrochemical companies, endangered species, tourists, polluters, ecologists, natural disasters and even UFO's, all vying for your attention - and for your resources. With teams of agents at your command, you'll embark on missions to determine the fate of a series of island rainforests. You'll control the balance between ecology and economy. You'll decide who survives and who goes extinct. And when all is said and done, you'll be king of the rainforest - or of a wasteland.
Video clips and photographs will show you real rainforest plants and animals.
Free form mode lets you set your own agenda for building or exploring.
Sound effects recorded in rainforests will make you feel like you're really there - wild animal sounds so realistic, you'll shiver.
Exotic musical soundtrack puts you in the mood.

"SimIsle combines a lot of good old SimCity charm with a bit more game than is customary in the series. It requires you to complete scenarios and meet certain performance goals in order to win the game. By keeping the 'toy' aspects of SimCity and injecting goals and missions into it, Maxis has created a game that is just as fun, but with considerably more replay value."
"Two innovations in SimIsle that make this game truly enjoyable are the addition of agents and the ability to explore your island. Agents are essential to the game, because you manage your island through them. Also, since you've just arrived on the island, you know little about its environment, meaning there are all sorts of animals, plants, and ruins to be discovered."
