I liked the game play except it was TOO slow... unless you wanted to spend all your time clicking on your characters to make them go faster. Even then it was hard to beat the time limit. None of the word descriptions fit but I have to pick something. I'm deleting from my computer.

This game involves resource management with the twist being you can speed up the actions of a laborer by putting the cursor on them and clicking away as fast as you can. While doing this other workers must be watched to make sure they are not idle. Some frustration occurs when you want to upgrade a building, but end up clicking on getting the resource or visa versa. Also, in your first time through you find yourself getting done early only to find that there is a hidden task which no addtional time is alloted for. Overall a decent time killer that will get the blood pressure up.

Many other games have done this is a superior way, funner, more challenging, with better graphics

This would have been a great game except I noticed that the timer was still counting down while I was talking to the other characters.

the screen is not smooth and story line poor. One of the worst I had played in my life. Game deleted after 3 stages.

trying to finish everything in the time allotted is nearly impossible. I love TM games and building games so I would have given this game 5 stars if not for the ridiculous time frame. I would also add that the instructions should be clear when proceeding past the first 3 levels. Each scene you play kept my interest because there is alway's a different storyline or someone in need of help. If not for the timer I would say the game is excellent. It's a great little game but definately needs an adjustment. I'll be interested in what others have to say.

When I played there seemed no way to complete the simple goals because the options to do so were not there. Maybe it was me but I give up!!

Not to bad just no way for me to get a gold cup each level I think only 3, 2 silver. They don't give you much time for what they are asking. It took me one day to play all and finish. Will replay and try for gold.

I played the entire game once. The timing was so short that it was virtually impossible to reach the Silver, let alone the gold. I play games every day and have never encountered a TM so short on time. The story is OK and the graphics good for a TM game. But again its hard to continue a game when you can't attain anything but the Bronze Cup.

It's got some problems -- the aforementioned counting down while the player is held hostage to dialogue being one. It's just weird in some regards - clearing blockages doesn't give you resources, other times recovering items for characters does -- inconsistent at best, and it's not completely clear what will need to be done in each chapter. The story lacks. On the other hand, it's a great game for those who like a challenge. I've wondered if the dev team actually had people play it before arbitrarily setting time limits that seem very hard at times. That said, I'm tired of playing TM games on the hardest level, making silly mistakes the whole way through yet still being able to achieve expert on my first try. That's not the case with this game. It's tough, and playing through more than once is required to get gold after the first 5 or so chapters. It's a great value in that replay is required to get silver on some, let alone gold. Frankly, I do wish this one had a "normal" and "expert" level, since I'd like to try both. It's not as good as the MKftP games, but it's akin to them, and since there is a dirth of true TM or Resource mgmt games these days, it's nice to see a new one that's different, challenging and grows on you as the game moves on. I'll play again and again until I achieve gold on all levels. Finally it's kid friendly, but I'd imagine too hard for kids to do more than simply play through (bronze is guaranteed for those who don't care much about time.)

really like this game, but there is some frustration in that it is impossible for me to get gold or even silver. the time is jst too short to get either one. but at least there is unlimited time to get bronze. a very challenging game. building buildings/gathering supplies. weird story line. nice graphics. will spend hrs playing i'm sure...

It's a fun little game to play, but in order to get silver or gold you really have to play too fast to enjoy what your doing. Recommend it if you are a FunPass member.
