great fun to play = you have to think and plan ahead and to get the gold stars you really have to work fast and try different tactics. I don't usually replay games but find myself going back to this one again and again

Excellent game! Very addictive! Original and cool time management game. Really have to think about how to do each board to get your stars. Recommend this to anyone that loves time management games.

I always enjoy a good town-building sim and this one is a lot of fun to work though, learning all the new aspects of the different homes and the rents they bring in, upgrading them and the other types of buildings that enter in new aspects to the game balancing building material production vs. gold collected to achieve every variety of winning conditions, some of which can be very puzzling later in the game with all the different ways to play and trying to discover the correct buildings and tactics to achieve the winning conditions within the "star" time limit. Great game mechanics along with very good graphics and a charming story. A+ as far as I'm concerned.

Great game- very challenging. You have to be able to click fast and respond quickly to keep all your workers going. It is addictive- because you want to see the next island and the adventures that await.

Loved the game. The only thing I wish was different, would be that I would like to have a trophy for completing Expert Mode with all gold stars. Other than that, I am waiting for the second one to come out.

I absolutely LOVE this game!! I am currently playing through it for the second time... and it is just as fun as the first (and addictive)!! I loved the graphics... and the characters... and the story... so overall I LOVED this game!! :-) I really hope they come out with a Royal Envoy 2 in the near future!!

I really like this game. I have played the Build-A-Lot games which I really enjoy but this one is a littel more challenging. My favorite thing about this game is that if you do not finish in the time allotted you just don't get the gold star for level but you still get to complete the level and move on. This is definitely a challenging game....I am used to getting all of the gold stars for the levels the first time through and in 10 levels I have gotten 6, but the game is still very fun and enjoyable. You definitely need to plan the levels out before you start.....very similar to Princess also......definitely worth paying for!!!!

Similar to the Build-a-lot franchise but with a much more relaxed pace. 10-12 year olds should be able to play though it on normal games play with little frustration. I know a 45 year old that found it entertaining on expert mode, too! ;-) Charming graphics, good flow.

I haven't finished this game yet and there are plenty of levels to replay as I rarely beat the timer! It's nice that you can progress with the game when the time runs out. Lovely graphics and strategically challenging.

Great graphics and story line. I really like this game played it several times on different levels. you need to plan ahead to get gold. well worth your time. Really fun!

I liked this game so much that I bought it. It is kid friendly but younger children may need some help getting through the higher levels. It's definitely not a game you'll finish in one session (unless you're up all night!) and it has good replay value since you can go back to any of levels to try and improve your time. I found it very challenging and have yet to get all the levels done within the alloted times.

This game makes me think what would happen if build-a-lot and my kingdom for the princess combined? Royal Envoy happened. The game play is more similar to build-a-lot buy style wise it is -MKftP- If you enjoyed the build-a-lot games you'll enjoy this, you might not necessarily enjoy this game if you prefer how -MKftP- played out, but go ahead and try it out. Royal Envoy is a great game.

Royal Envoy is a pretty fun game. It's a time management/building game that takes you from island to island where you have to solve tasks and build different homes and buildings. You get extra points if you do it before the gold thermometer runs out of time. Sometimes you might want to go back on certain levels and build different buildings or houses to see if you can get the level finished by doing something differently/more productively. My main complaint (and the reason this got 4 stars instead of 5) is that it seems like on some levels, no matter what you do, you won't be able to get everything done before the gold thrmometer runs out.

This is a great strategy TM game. You really have to plan your moves in order to accomplish the tasks on time. but it has just the right amount of challenge without feeling like it's impossible. I can't say enough great things about this game; the graphics are superb and it's long enough to make you feel like you more than got your money's worth. Plus you don't have to get gold on the level to proceed to the next level. I see lots of replay value here in that I want to keep trying to get those gold stars. Can't wait for the sequel!

I got the trial version and I am not sure yet if I will actually buy it but it was a good game. The graphics were good and all the places were really nice in their own ways. The tasks you have to do get challenging and you have to do different tasks and levels to unlock different stuff so that was fun. It was very fast paced so if you want to relax it's not for you, although there isn't a time limit on the rounds theres still a lot to do in them. You have to build stuff and collect money from the tax payers and that helps you build your towns and move on. All in all, it was a decent game. Better then a lot I have played.

Manage your time, and resources. Usually I don't like time management, but this one's awesome. You can still complete the levels, even if you run out of time, you just don't get the gold star for the level. I really enjoyed playing the levels, and then enjoyed it again when I went back and got them all gold stars. Even better you unlock expert mode when you finish everything in gold stars. Really challenges you, a lot of planing and choosing the best options. Different homes, and buildings you can have each having a unique way of getting you resources. you either get gold or wood, but you need them both to win. Really have to menage them well. An excellent, awesome game with good old unique, innovative independent thinking and quality work went into this one for sure. I'D GIVE THIS GAME AT LEAST 7 STARS IF THEY'DE LET ME. Wish there was more games like this out there. Fortunately I see there's two other sequels to this.

Here's one to get the brain cells working. Very addictive and entertaining. Miles better than the typical "build a city" type games. Play at your own pace or race against the clock to finish each level before the timer runs down. Well thought out and designed game.

I really enjoyed this game. It is not SUPER hard and once you think about your goals that are required to finish the level, its pretty easy going from there. If you don't get a gold star on a level you are still able to move on with game play as well. Getting a gold star for each level isn't that difficult though and you get trophies for doing so.
