AllStars Review
At AllStars we love the Live Safari Series and this
latest addition offers another exciting visual experience
for games players.

Impala Saf
ari

With Impala Safari, players can control the experience


of a herd of impala: theres the big male buck and the
smaller females - not to mention the adorable fawns.
Theres also the hungry hyena who stalks the herd,
taking down the young, the old, the injured and the
inattentive.
Successful players will be those who take the time to
go into the games Research Facility to find out more
about all the creatures. How do impala stay one step ahead of the hyena? How
do they keep their fawns safe? Are hyenas really the stinking outcasts that
stories make them out to be? The Research Facility enables players to make
educated decisions and help the impala to survive in the desert.
The exciting new Guest Mode allows two or more players to work together to
outwit the hyena. This creates random and dynamic challenges to enrich game
play.
There is the additional option of free downloads. These include videos of impala
living in Africa, as well as commentary by safari rangers who know how to help to
keep these graceful creatures safe. Also available are additional herd members
to add to the safety of the herd and, for those who feel that they have mastered
the game, new threats in the form of lions.
Impala Safari is outstanding simulation software for kids of all ages and would be
a good buy for all the family. Those who are willing to learn as they play will be
particularly successful, but all players can enjoy keeping these stunning little
creatures safe. But beware - if your attention wanders for even a second, your
impala will be under threat. The hyena never sleeps!
