I loved the first Royal Envoy and when I heard there was a new one coming out, I was counting the days. It did not disppoint. I like not having tax collectors. I do miss the original style of market, as you generate cash faster, but definitely enjoyed the new version !!!

Love this game! Graphics are good, and it makes you think more than the usual time managemet games.

Royal Envoy is one of my favorite games, and this sequel doesn't disappoint me. It continues to have a combination of time management features, a light and fun story, and a sense of humor. Since the platinum edition is a little pricey and not available on the Funpass (I hope this isn't going to be a new regular thing), fortunately it is a long game. It is taking me a couple of attempts to get the full 3-stars per level, since some require some harder strategic thinking to complete than the first Royal Envoy did. So far, I'm enjoying it, and after a long snow day of working at it, still haven't finished it.

I started with Royal Envoy 2 rather than the first and I loved it!!! Very fun game... Have to think about your strategy in the advanced game, which is nice...

Let me begin by saying that Royal Envoy is one of my top 5 favorite games - so I was eagerly anticipating this release. The wait is over, and well worth it. I absolutely love that once again Playrix has outdone themselves. From the music (charming!), to the characters (even more charming!) to the graphics and strategy, Royal Envoy Two is one of the few sequels that best the original. Most of our favorite characters are back (woodsmen working hard!), the concept is the same - building villages in the allotted time, with all tasks completed, but they've added even more fun elements (help the villagers have a snowball fight!), to add to the mix. They've included some mini-games, and just the right amount of challenge to keep you on your toes. Usually I finish a game before writing a review, but this time I want to savor the fun, yet had to recommend it as a fantastic start to 2012, and a contender for game of the year. I bought the Platinum Edition, and don't yet know how it will compare to the "regular", and while I'm usually dubious that "Platinum Editions" are worth double the money for a quarter more game play, I can tell you that I'm not in the least bit disappointed...it's been money well spent. Enjoy!!!

Eagerly awaited, I was dissapointed by the follow up to Royal Envoy 1 - The Format has changed so much that it should have been given a different Name. Gone are the Tax collectors in this serial - instead you have to click like crazy to collect resources before they dissapear, The Market does not trade in Gold anymore so you have to find another way to achieve this. Strategically challenging, you sometimes you have to play a level twice or three times to achieve the goal, as buildings have to be knocked down and others erected to achieve the minimum requirement.

This game is extremely well designed and developed. The graphics are smooth as glass, it loads quickly, you're never at a loss about what your goals are and it's really, really long! One of my primary pet peeves on some games that can be found on this site are that they are too short. If you actually purchase them you find out that you can finish it within 30 minutes of laying down your hard-earned cash. Not this game. This is a long one, and all the levels are beautifully rendered and thought out so the challenges never let up. The fun-level is through the roof. The voice-acting can get slightly repetitive, but not annoyingly so, and the music is unobtrusive. Overall, a class act on a class site. If you like time-management games...get this one. If you've never tried one, but would like to dip your foot in the pool, download this and give it a shot. You won't be disappointed.

I have bought several games over the years. This is by far my favorite. I have played it multiple times and it still challenges me to think. I never played the first one but I'm going to go and buy it as well since this one is so good. You won't be dissappointed. This is a really great game.

Wow, playing this game you really feel like you've been sent back in time to their era. I played the first edition, loved it and came back to GH to buy it but then I saw RE2 so I checked it out. No major differences between the first and second edition. I was hoping the second edition would be harder but its not. They really should have an expert mode. Nevertheless, it's a really enjoyable game, a really good TM game. I still can't decide to buy this platinum edition or the normal RE2 edition... The only thing worth buying this one is the extra games you activate once you've completed the game.

i loved the 1st Royal Envoy game, & have been eagerly awaiting the sequel. i am not disappointed. the purple haired king is back. & Cedric, too. while the graphics/music/& most of the goals are the same as the 1st game-rebuild villiages. there are some interesting differences. in order to rebuild these very different villiages (swampy/marshy/snowy/covered in volcanic ash) u have to hire workers to build houses, sawmills, snow fort, banks, forrestry huts/to clear land=chop trees, work in the forrestry huts, shovel snow, compete in a snow ball championship/to collect food. u have to build markets to buy food when none is available from the land. there really is strategy to this game. which lanterns do u build 1st to get to the most needed resources. i loved the added fun of the snow ball tournament, collecting wood in the maze. i found it hard to get expert. the trial hr simply flew-can't wait to buy this game. i also liked the little details-seeing the breath of the villager in the snowy villiage-nice touch. i could go on and on. just try it. i think you'll love this one as much as i do.........

I couldn't wait for the next Royal Envoy!!! The first Envoy was one of my favorite TMGs ever and am anticipating Royal Envoy 3. The graphics are still amazing and the game is extremely fun and very challenging. Well worth the money and great replay. The reason for the 4 rating is only because I didn`t get the excitement of `moving on up`. I miss the upgrades of the houses and taking the chance of having your homes destroyed. The levels seemed to run into one another, albeit very different. All in all, one of the best TMGs! Thank you Playrix and hope you are working on Royal Envoy 3!

I find this one actually kinda fun... It's interesting how you have to go through the different levels. I enjoyed it how you can find different things to go through. It's actually very interesting.

I love the updates from Royal Envoy one. I like being able to just click on money and lumber etc instead of sending a worker to pick it up. I just wish that there was a non-platinum edition so I could play on my funpass :( PS the sliders for the ratings are terrible! I rate them much lower than I rate the game.

I really do read the reviews before I decide to buy the game and someone's review made me buy it. I'm at Chapter 50 something and haven't even gotten to the extra challenges. The "help" will take you step by step BUT like the recent reviewer, you don't really want to look and that's what challenges me! Time Management Games are my favorite anyway but this is the best and longest so far. Good Job to the creators! GameHouse keep buying these GREAT GAMES!

I have to say without a doubt that this is the best game I have played from Gamehouse yet. I tried the trial game and was hooked and although a Fun Pass member I couldn't wait for it to come out on there so I bought it and I am so glad I did. It is one of the longest games I have played so definitely value for money. You really do have to think how to work it out and I love the sneaky bits put in near the end. Hidden treasures etc. In expert mode I did my best not to look at the walk through but gave in at the last level. The extra challenges are extremely good as well. I have now played the game in its entirety and am going to do so again. After the fiasco of the Farm Frenzy Viking game this was such a pleasure and has restored my faith in Gamehouse.

Love the first Envoy and was thrilled to see the second! The changes threw me at first, but love the updates. Would reccommend this to any Time Management game player. Hoping there is a 3 in the works!

When I first played this sequel I was a little disappointed. The changes made to this version threw me off but after spending hours going through the 63 levels and then the Challenge levels my disappointment turned to delight (you only need to go through all the levels regardless of the number of stars you earn in order to get the Challenge levels). At first it didn't have the same "feel" as the original Royal Envoy but I began to appreciate the changes that have been made. First, the tax collectors are gone. You no longer have to hire them in order to collect rents - they're automatically added to your treasury once you click on the coins and you no longer need numerous banks in order to accumulate large amounts of money - one bank is enough. The same goes with the sawmills and markets. Clicking on the wood and food adds them to your inventory without having anyone travel back to the castle. Second, the pirates are still with us, still asking to be paid to get out of the way but a new element has been added - sad leprechauns. You need to increase Happiness in order to cheer them up and make them go away. I especially cracked up on the level where they were having their annual Sad Leprechaun Convention - too funny! And wait until you see the dovecote, another new addition meant to increase Happiness. Third, there's no need to upgrade the houses multiple times - once and done is the theme here. Also added was the fact that adding gardens will now increase your rent as well as upgrading a house and if you build a bank you get more money in the form of a bank bonus. It seems to me that the amount of time it takes to reach 3 stars (or Golden Time in the original) is a bit longer making it a tad easier to get to the Expert levels. Make no mistake - it still takes skill and planning to get there but on this one I'm actually 1 level away from completing all the levels with 3 stars, something I'm still trying to achieve in the original Royal Envoy. The Challenge levels are just that - a challenge - and not as difficult to master as you might guess as long as you plan your moves. I can't speak to the Expert levels yet since I still have 1 to complete but I'm guessing they'll be just as entertaining. There are also more Achievement goals to strive for in this one and the game keeps track of how you're progressing, showing the points you've accumulated and the percentage of completion. You now not only get points for completing monetary goals to reach certain builder levels but you also get points for reaching other goals within the game - building without using a sawmill or purchasing food at a market, etc. I absolutely recommend this one! It's a Good Value, Replay is not out of the question, and it will keep you entertained for hours on end! Dare I hope that a Royal Envoy 3 will make an appearance??? Keep up the good work Playrix!!!!

I am not usually a big fan of time management games, but my husband is. I watched him as he started RE2 and was hooked myself. We purchased the Platinum Edition of this game, which is something we don't normally do, and were both hooked. You follow around the Royal Architect clearing, demolishing, digging buried gold, harvesting food and building anything from a cabin to a dove cote complete with doves. If you get stuck in the platinum edition, there is a walk through section accessed from the main menu.(worth the money just for that) It is worth taking a look atit before getting frustrated at any given level, like the saying goes it is easy when you know how. Saying that, we both tried the levels several times (always attempting to achieve 3 gold stars) before resorting to looking at the walk through. Really enjoyed this game, and highly recommend it. After you complete the adventure, take on the challenges which are separate, they will make you work for every star. And when you are feeling very confident and very brave, return to the adventure in EXPERT MODE. It isn't called that lightly. Definitiely good value for money, ultimately replayable and lots and lots of variety and fun.

An amazing game -- I might become a time management (TM) fan after all. The graphics and animations are incredible. And I loved the happy workers and their comments. When the trial ended, my workers had demolished, built, and upgraded cabins and cottages, repaired bridges, built a sawmill (the woodcutting animation was really neat), picked apples, chopped open treasure chests, chopped down pine trees, and shoveled piles of snow. I was so busy watching the animations I almost forgot to click on the gold/rent money. The instructions are a little light, but with the platinum edition, clicking on hints brings up a detailed to-do list which was enormously helpful to an inexperienced TM player. There is a lot to assimilate, but Royal Envoy 2 introduces it in manageable bites so you have a chance to start off successfully and continue that way. Having tried a few other TM games and finding them incredibly repetitious, I now know what a great TM game should look like.

This game and the original are my favorite time management games! I'm a somewhat slow clicker and was able to reach three stars on the easy and expert levels, but needed the walkthough to do so. I enjoyed the challenge of trying to figure out what was needed. The graphics are amazing - I want to build an entire island of gramophones to watch the lumber jacks dance!
