The Timebuilders: Caveman's Prophecy
An odd TM game
This is a TM game similar to Royal Envoy, but in this one your strategy is useless because a lot of the tasks were left to chance. The deals at the "port" were hit or miss and the mystery eggs were well, a mystery. It wasn't half as much fun as other games done in this style. The graphics while detailed, were very plain and drab-colored. Overall an odd game, if you haven't played Royal Envoy I'd give it a try instead.

The graphics and game play are relatively standard with a time objective that was never, ever possible to reach. I didn?t even try to finish in award time after about level 4 because the times were impossible. The play is somewhat fun, if rushed, and objectives change from scene to scene. However, the cavemen speak in loud gibberish that got on my nerves. Frequently. I found that after a few scenes I was done for the day and would revisit the next day. The story line was supposed to be tongue in cheek, but was simply silly enough to just be ignored. So I did not dislike the game and I did not find that it held my attention for very long. Just a middling game, but worth buying.

Easy & Repetitive
This is a good started TM game for those who have little to no experience. You are basically doing the same buildings over & over. I am more than halfway through the game & I am not going to bother finishing it, as I am bored to tears. I much prefer a challenge, even if it means I have to repeat levels & even better if there is more variety in what you are building & having to come up with a strategy *cough* (Sweet Kingdom) *cough*. That said, if you are new to this type of game, it will get you started on how these games work. I don't listen to music, so not sure if it was good or bad, nor do I follow story lines. The reason I only gave it 2 stars was that the visuals were poor to me & it was not fun or challenging enough.
I am torn on recommending it. I am going to say no for most players, but for younger players or beginners, it may be a yes.

Fun for a child
Typical time management builder. Good visuals, OK sound, but leaves alot to be desired as far as gameplay. VERY easy to beat. If you have very little skill at games of this kind you might like it.
