Shop-N-Spree: Family Fortune
Much like the first but improved!
I love how this game brings everything about the first game, including the ultra adorable graphics, but updates and improves on it. It is a really brilliant sequel and just as fun as the first.
I found the later levels in this game a little harder than the first but apart from that it essentially stayed the same, challenge wise.
I really hoped, after playing the first one several times, that they would bring in an option of right clicking to deliver items instead of dragging them to the customer but unfortunately that was not implemented. I can always hoping for the 3rd one to have that option.

A good change
This game is a good change of pace from the overall average games out. Some times the customer gives you a picture of what they need, other times they just tell you the name.

I really loved this game, kind of like being a 'personal shopper'.
You had to find the different items for the customers and there were also 'x2,x3' tags thus doubled or thriced your score, thus if used wisely could help get an 'expert' score for the level. You can thus plan when to use these and in some shops these can really add 'money to the pot' so to speak. This added an extra element.
Also when a brand new shop had unlocked you had the option (and you gained an extra $50 at the start if you collected all, to find 'defective items') to 'clear the shop' as it were. This all added to the game play. But as you read on in the review (if you can be bothered), you will see where I felt the game didn't earn its '5th star'.
The graphics were good representations of the items in question, and the characters were good also.
The game whilst it lasted was good fun, but there is only 3 different areas to complete and then that is 'game-over' thus the game is thus very short (completed in around 6 hours which for me for a TM is short), you also didn't have the opportunity to go back to the previous 'zones' to re-play them.
You can re-play the mini-games, but I got bored of this after 30 minutes or so, I would have much rather been able to reply the actual game (you can I suppose counter-act this by setting up a different profile, which is what I did in the end).
The sound/music/storyline about the same as most other TM (virtually non-existent), but again for TM it doesn't seem to matter.
Overall though I liked the game, though you have to play the different 'shops' twice or thrice sometimes before you are able to find all the items in the store (also when it is a very first 'look' at the shop you will probably have to use a lot of hints, just to find your way round).
The game is good whilst it lasted and as I got it at a 'special price' it was well worth the money.

Needs more Updates
Great game that you can complete many times over...mini games are fun as well. Just wish that you would change up the music some and enable the ability to right click items to deliver to customers. Thanks!

Loved the first one - Like this one too but kinda disappointed too
I thought they did a great job of changing up the game to be more of a HO game and they replenish the items for you. I was really looking forward to the 2nd one because I played the 1st one over and over until I could play it in my sleep! I'm just really bummed because there were only 3 scenes to complete with this game. It was over way too quick. Also, on the first game you could go back and replay the games again and again and so far I have only been able to replay the last village in this game.

Once you've finished a level, here's no way to return to return to it. Once the game is finished, you're stuck playing the very last level forever, unless you create a new player and start all over again from scratch. There is no way to have all the levels plus the mini games available for play. I wrote to the developer and asked about this but never got any response. Since there's no support for this game, don't waste your money.

You HAVE to have very sharp eyes to play
This could have been a decent game except for the fact you have to have exceedingly keen sight to play. I wear glasses - but am far-sighted. I can see close up with my glasses but apparently not near well enough to play this.

It's been a while since i've played this game and i can't remember what its about. This hasn't happened with any other games. I don't think it was very good. too easy and a bit boring.
