The Timebuilders: Pyramid Rising
Just happen to come across this TM game an decided to see if it was any good, an I have to say that I absolutely LOVED IT! Im sure that part 2 is going to be just as much fun as this one! This is a definite buy to add to your TM collection!

Decent time-management game
I would recommend this game. It is fun and challenging.

Beige, Beige and More Beige
Based upon reviews, I bought without a trial. Silly me. For me, Royal Envoy is the Shangri-La of TM games. I am trying to find something that even comes close. No luck here.
I got to level 13 before calling quits----I kept playing hoping for some variety until I realized there wasn't going to be any. All levels are essentially the same---huts, huts, and more huts. All with gardens...at first 1 garden, then eventually 3. No variety. Perhaps you have to build a port or something extra on each level. But the core is the same....huts with 3 gardens! And the color beige everywhere!!!
Each level is a list of buildings which you basically check off. There is no room for personal strategizing which is what I love about Royal Envoy. For instance, with RE you might have a goal of $10,000 and you decide how to get the money in the time allotted: Do you build cabins or cottages or chalets? A bank perhaps? Each takes wood and food which costs money. There is none of that in Pyramid Rising. You do what they tell you.
I think this is a fine game for people who don't mind checking off a list in a certain time frame.

It's fine. Very standard building game play. Graphics leave something to be desired. It's fine but nothing to rave about.

If you are new to TM games, you will probably like this game. If you are experienced you may want to skip it. If you played the other Time Builder's game, this is the same, just a different era. You are told what to do & how to do it. The visuals are the same cartoon style as the first one, though even I have to admit the victory dance is cute. I did buy this game, after playing the trial of the first Time Builder's game. I should have kept playing the first one & trialed this one. As it is, though I hate not finishing a game, & I am at least 1/2 way through both of the games, I will be finishing neither. I'd rather go back & replay my other TM games (Sweet Kingdom, Northern Tales, Royal Envoy 1 & 2) than suffer through more of the repetitiveness of these games. Not a game for me.

same old stuff
if you have played other timebuilders games you wont be surprised by this one. everything was ok but nothing new or funny/entertaining. During the free 1 hour I did 13 levels and got a gold at each one! :-(
by then I would have appreciated a little challenge!
Don't bother buying it it's not worth the money.

not my cup of coffee
just like all the other ones just a different name and different people playing it. Good for the kids if you can put it on without the timer, and the people dance like they are excise sing when you're done in time,
