I enjoy the game and I have no trouble getting thru the levels but for me at least it is almost impossible to get expert on a level except on the first few levels. I'll redo the level several times and always run out of time just a few seconds before expert level expires. Other then that though it is a fun game.

Awesome game! Gameplay is similar to My Kingdom for the Princess. To impress your true love and win her hand, you must do tasks for her father, who strives to keep you apart. Each level you are given specific goals and must reach them within the allotted time. You must build roads and collect resources (gems, gold, wood, stone, food). You can harvest directly from the land or erect buildings such as sawmills, quarries, mines or farms to assist you on your way. Depending on which area you are in, you may encounter wild animals such as wolves or polar bears. You must dispatch them immediately as they will hinder your workers progress as they will be too afraid to come out of their homes. There are hidden bonuses such as the clock which stops time for a brief period (this is a big help), speed boots and other items. Game length looks to be good. Just did the hour demo and it was over before I knew it! This is easily a game you could get seriously hooked on and end up staying up all night playing. Graphics are quite beautifully done (they remind me of Royal Envoy). A 5 out of 5 on this one!

This game is a lot like My Kingdom For The Princess 1 & 2, I hope that more games like this are in the works because they are challenging and a lot of fun!

This game was a great. It provided just enough challenge. The gold levels were not always achievable the first time you tried, but with effort they were possible. I enjoyed this immensely.

The challenges vary and the sense of managing time is much more pronounced than other games such as the Dash games. I especially like the building component.

I've played all the online levels of this game - love it. Not my normal style of game, and while it's not terribly hard or challenging, I recommend it. Great graphics and good gameplay with having to build, collect, protect all at once.

At first when I started playing this game, I thought "what's this.....just building a road" I continued ...it started picking up in action with new items to do and quickly became fun and held my interest..it's different, not to fast and low stress level unlike some of the hidden object games or the games you can never finish because they go way to fast. I play alot of games 'all kinds' and have for several years... I rate this game at the top..I even purchased and finished # 2 and waiting for more...Keep up the good work..Very enjoyable

This has become my favorite time management game. The expert level is actually reachable without trying to figure out a complicated series of events. I will enjoy re-playing the levels to reach expert where I missed it the first time around. I wish there were more time management games like this!

Very addicting! You'll want to finish the game at least once. Probably twice if you can finish levels as an expert. Challenges increase with levels. Very enjoyable overall.

OMG! All the while I've been playing this which so far I've gotten through 15 out of the 40 levels but anyway I was thinking about the part in the Wizard of Oz - "Lions, tigers, and bears -Oh my!" LOL! In this game however it's earthquakes, wolves, and polar bears - OH MY! This is yet another TM game that while I have a hard time meeting the goals and if you've read any of my reviews, I either meet the goals within the last minute or within seconds or times I have to redo them. I absolutely LOVE this game however and yet another game that falls under my worthiness to keep trying. The game play and even the workers remind me of the Royal Envoy game which I must say I kept up better in that game. Why I'm not quite sure but I did. In this game you are given goals that you must meet within the allotted time or you have to start again unlike some where you can still finish just won't get any kind of "bonus" points. You must build roads and collect resources (gems, gold, wood, stone, food). You can harvest directly from the land or erect buildings such as sawmills, quarries, mines or farms to assist you on your way. As I mentioned and depending on which level of the game you're at, you may encounter wild animals such as wolves or polar bears which you must click on them and keep clicking on them until they go away as the workers won't work while they are there. Oh and also earthquakes which can be quite frustrating as it destroys what you have built. Not everything but one building is enough madness. There are also little bonuses hidden in the levels such as clocks to add some more time on to the clock or boots to speed up the workers just to name a couple. So far I've even came across a mini game - a match 3 game. Overall, I give this 5 stars. This game ROCKS in my opinion inspite of meeting the goals either down to wire or having to redo them again. So if you enjoy My Kingdom For the Princess or Royal Envoy I'm pretty confident you will enjoy this as well so give it a whirl.

We love this game in my house. Sometimes you have to think about how you should play the board. But that's a good thing-keeps you on your toes.

I'm loving this game! It's what My Kingdom for the Princess 2 should have been and wasn't. The basic gameplay is the same. You're a little fellow trying to clear the roads to get to the next area on the map. The graphics are vastly improved, and look very realistic. The situations are also far more realistic. This gives it a more "adult" feel. I get tired of playing with cartoons. The game starts with one fellow, who needs to build roads through the Roman empire, believe it or not! He needs wood, stone, and a variety of other things to accomplish his goal. Unlike other games of this sort, you can go chop down any tree. Your gold and food don't just magically appear-- you have to work for them. You can build mines and mills, and you can also harvest stones, small gold deposits, pick berries.... It really gives you control over your environment and how you will proceed. The challenges are tougher than other games like this, in my opinion. I have had trouble getting things done in several levels quickly enough to earn expert. However, unlike other games, this one's less frustrating. It's not nearly as contingent on chance, and your choices on how to use resources definitely have a big influence on each level. There is also no magic save timer. Oh, I don't have ten wood to make my worker's building big enough for another worker, but lookie here-- there's a free one on my screen! There are a few helper items, but you have to earn them by clearing the path to them, and actually collecting them. Also, they do not respawn, so once you've used them, they're gone. I think older kids would enjoy this, but for young ones, I think the challenge might just be too much. They may not be able to see the cause and effect well enough to plan out how to proceed. I am loving the challenge of this game, the atmosphere, and well, the addictive quality. I had to tear myself away to write this! This is a great game, and well worth the money. I definitely recommend it for adults and teens. Off to play it some more now!

I, like others that reviewed this game, enjoyed My Kingdom for the Princess before playing this game. These are both time management games that are a lot more fun than the usual time management games. Both games are very similar, but this game doesn't keep telling me "you don't have enough food" or whichever it was I didn't have. But I think this game was a little easier to achieve the gold. Both fast paced and fun.

Roads of Rome kept my interest the whole time I played the game. I liked having to quickly decide which resource areas to upgrade in order to complete the tasks for each level. The game involves a lot of scanning the screen when resources become available because the sound is the same for all resources when they appear. In other words, in addition to time management, Roads of Rome requires some strategy for accomplishing the tasks, which I like about the game. Although I gave the game 5 stars, the only "complaint" I have is that once you have finished all the levels, that is it. No locked areas become available and there is no real reason to play the game again once you've achieved expert on every level. Still, I had fun playing it!

Very enjoyable. This game is very similar to Kingdom for the Princess series, but what they lacked Roads of Rome seemed to have. You can be more of the master of your fate in this game. You can get extra wood by chopping down trees etc. It is fast paced & you need to be quick in order to get expert. I was frustrated with Princess II but this game is so much better. I would recommend it to teens & adults. It is also a good replay to better your score.

This game was definitely addictive. It was challenging to reach the second levels and sometimes took several times to get done in time but it was worth it to see the statues! I liked the boats and balloons too. The "Collapse" type mini games were a good break. Overall I enjoyed the game and will probably play it again and again.

It does have lots going on and a little busy even in the relaxed mode (no timer) Is not my favorite game although it is a good game. I did use a fun pass and did purchase it. Relaxed mode is great for kids or those who do not want the pressure of a timer. I think I would have liked it more if I had not downloaded some similar games with better graphics.

I play lots of TM games and this one has been a keeper. I had to play a few rounds again to get expert, but finishing them before the total round time expired was not difficult, although it was close on a few. Fast paced and challenging if you want to get expert on every level. Very fun, but irritating when you finish just seconds below expert :) The graphics and sounds are great. Definitely recommend for people that like TM games. I just wish it had 100 levels instead of 40!! I hope they make more games like this and the ones I have shown as recommend.
