I played the trial version and decided to go ahead and buy the game. I've finished it twice now. It starts off fairly slow but by the sixth level it becomes more and more difficult to obtain the goals for that level. In order to buy some items, like the grill, you have to sell another machine. After you sell the machine, if you click on the arrow on the cloud, where the old machine was, you will see where you can buy the grill. So if you need 10 hot dogs, use the mayonnaise machine first, make 10 jars of the mayonnaise, then sell that machine. Then you will see where you can buy the grill. I learned this by trial and error and it does get very difficult at times. I still haven't gotten gold on all levels. Also if you go to another level, and it doesn't let you play, it's because you haven't gotten enough points on the previous levels so you will have to go back and play those. Someone mentioned they hadn't been able to make the pillows. You have to buy the ducks first. Keep their feeding trough full, and keep the ground watered. They will grow and eventually will start shedding feathers which you then put into the pillow machine. The only problem I had with this game is at times it runs slowly. Also the instructions are vague. I got a message where I had achieved extra stars, or suns, because I had not used the red hint arrow. I hadn't used it because I've never been able to find it. Someone compared this game to Farm Frenzy. It does resemble the Farm Frenzy games but in my opinion this one is a lot more fun. You don't grow crops like you do in the other farm type games. Instead you make rugs, pizza, hotdogs, furniture, cheese, carvings, and cakes. You also have to take care of your livestock and keep them safe from predators. This game would probably be frustrating for young children since there is a lot of strategy involved. In fact, in my opinion, it's more of a strategy game than a time management game. The replay is good and the graphics are nice. It also has a nice story line although I generally don't pay that much attention to the story. I think it's a good buy and well worth trying.
