There were new foes in this such as polyps, squid, witches and others. It seemed like they copied off of Island Tribe though as this edition had underwater scenes, but instead of the vikings wearing helmets, they had some magical power bestowed on them which let them breathe underwater. The underwater levels were much better than the Island Tribe's version. They had a lot more animation and the graphics were superb. Lots of bubbles, and fish and schools of fish surrounding the polyps as well as just astounding colorful and detailed graphics. They did a great job in the animation dept. Still in this game is the little hamster, but there were also for the underwater scenes, starfish which I found amusing. You would click on them and they would go . "Mmmf!" and shrink up. Very cute. And of course there were hazards getting into your way, like the sword dropping and blocking your path. Very new though was the seaweed that would suddenly wrap around one of the vikings. In order to free him you would have to click several times on him and then it would release him and he could carry on then. They still have berry bushes but new is the apple trees which give 5 and have a supply of 15. Friends or helpers they brought back were the eagles in some of the episodes, flying them across various parts of the screen. Also back was the exorcist, and the druid but new is the Gillman. Who's job it is to get rid of the squid or destoy polyps. He rides around on a manta ray or stingray (I always get the 2 mixed up), which was kind of cool. Also for a time a couple levels featured a mama dragon who had a baby and the baby dragon helped them in a couple episodes. Another thing is shortly after getting into the first underwater scene, there was one level where hidden within some seaweed was an object. When I clicked it, it said I got a mermaid's purse or something like that which would carry a lot of food? I can't remember exactly but that was unexpected as they've never had that in any previous game. THE BAD: A couple things I didn't really like was They brought back some former foes from pervious games such as the Elementals, Lizardmen, Gesta etc The other thing that they've never corrected in any of their games is the fact that sometimes if you make a wrong choice of which path you want to clear, you are sometimes without a necessary resource to advance. And there's NOTHING you can do to fix it, but restart the level. They probably never corrected that because they don't view it as a problem. But IMO, no game should leave you without a choice. I almost quit the game for good when that happened not once but a SECOND time. That should NEVER EVER BE in a TM game that you don't have a choice to move on. Because of that I would not rate this 5 stars. It gets 4 stars only.

I love all these types of games and this one did not disappoint. If you've played the first 3 installments, you'll enjoy this one too.

I found back this serie I love just as I love it. A little harder to get the 3 stars on some levels, which is appreciated.

As with all of the games in this series replay value is great. The graphics are superb.The story line is entertaining. I would recommend to anyone to purchase this game as it will give you hours of play as there are different modes to choose from. My only complaint would be the wait between the different levels. For me it takes a bit to long, but not enough of an issue to stop me from my purchase of this game. Buy it if this is the type of game you enjoy.

Love Northern Tale. This game is fun and challenging. I had to go back over quite a few of the episodes to get 3 stars. Varied enough to keep my interest. The ocean levels were fun.

The fourth installment of Northern Tales does not disappoint. New features, new characters, a simple but effective story line combine to provide hours of enjoyment for players at any level. I love the underwater graphics!

The elements of this are largely exactly like the prior games but the settings here are a bit more complicated and noisy (which is occasionally annoying as there are some tunnels you either can't see or you can't tell which opening they lead to). Also, they did a modified version of what MKFTP 4 did, where some elements require that you send a worker 3 times before they are cleared. It isn't as frequent here as it was with MKFTP or I would have given the game a lower rating.

I was definitely surprised to see this game already out since the 3rd installment was released so recently, but I liked all these games (except the 2nd one - I didn't like those vines constantly springing up over the buildings repeatedly, wasting my resources every time...) so I was ready to play this one, too. It has its typical minor annoyances - a few levels (not many) with the mechanic's wheel & doors having to be re-opened, or mean guys throwing sudden swords in your path that you have to get rid of... But not too many levels like this. Plus - there are a bunch of underwater levels, which were new & SO fun! Definitely my favorite part about this 4th version. It added just the right amount of variety without changing the entire game (A-hem, Kingdom for a Princess' 4th version??). My vote: Still fun!

Great Game! Fun Replay. I found this one much harder to get 3 stars as the prior games in the series. Which I like a good challenge. If you liked the prior 3 games, you will definitely like this one as well. About time they released a TM game worth the money/credits!! Definite keeper!

This is great for games when you don't want to think too much. This game is easy but fun.

This is the most insipid game I have seen lately. It might be alright for children but it takes forever to get to the next level after finishing the level.
