Jack of All Tribes
Unhappy with this game
This is normally exactly the type of game that I play & I love them all but was sorely disappointed with Jack of All Tribes. I thought I liked, it & bought the full version after a 1 hour demo then just minutes later, the game came to an end. I was nearly irate. I dont appreciate these game companies churning out generic game after game after game (almost all of which are hidden object!) rather than a smaller # of Good Quality games with decent length. As for the tiny bit of gameplay that there was it had a mix between good & frustrating

Fun but limited
This game combines time management with brief hidden object scenes.
Overall the game is fun. You're stuck on an island and are both building or rebuilding areas and dealing with invaders, plus local "politics." There's an air of the supernatural to the plot. Plus points for not having a plot overgrown with piles of babbling exposition. The game moves along quickly.
But that same quickness is part of the problem. Each scene/level is relatively short. Most are very simple to do, with the exception of a few which have some challenge to them. The hidden object scenes are trivially easy for anyone who likes hidden object games. Do not choose this game for the HO scenes.
It's a cute game, and I don't disrecommend it, but I do recommend that you get it on sale. And like others, I'd love to see a sequel - preferably something longer, too.

Played better ...
Maybe it was the dialogue before each village to work through, but I found the storyline forced. This guy goes to an amusement park to find himself in this other world where he becomes chief. Bleh.
The objectives most of the time were easy to meet. There were two levels that I had to replay to get gold time.
I really like Royal Envoy but this just didn't measure up to it.
I think that for 6.99 or for a coupon code, this game is okay.
I am not sure I recommend the game but I don't think it is awful either.

Fun, fun time mangement game
The characters are cute and gets more difficult as you progress.
I own this game and wish they would do a sequel.

Not overly challenging
I kept waiting for the levels to get more difficult. Disappointed to find I could complete each level in 5-10 minutes...I liked it..there just should have been more.

Cute game, not much strategy though
If you like Royal Envoy or Timebuilder games, this is another variation to try. Very cute graphics and fun tasks, such as giving dino rides and baths (anyone else find it funny to see one of the guys sitting in the tub with bubbles over his head?). The workers actually stop building to get a drink at the bar or take a food break. Only complaints are that I couldn't skip the dialogues or turn off the tutorials, and I would have liked more levels and strategy (just took a couple hrs to complete), but overall a decent game and I would buy a sequel if/when it came out.

I loved this game!
I don't like many Time management games but I loved this one. I just wish it was longer.

Very fun but maybe too easy.
I really enjoyed this time management game, it was cute and fun but I found it to be a little too easy and ended up finishing the game very fast. Another thing I did not like about the game was, I felt there was too much dialogue and help for a game that was so simple.

i love this game have played it many times once you get the hang of it u get better some levels harder than others i like the fact u dont have to worry about the timer! yay! but to get the full flag u do need to make it in time. Is fun for all ages ^^
and ur character goes from stranger to legend :) and u get stuff to increase production. and there are a few hidden objects and coins in the hog scenes so dont forget to look for them :) i got it with game credit and i think 2.99 is a gr8 deal for this fun game and i am not that into tms so i definately say grab it!
