Time to Hurry: Nicole's Story
This is a delightful game, more Hidden Object than Time Management. Keep customers happy and fulfill their requirements within expert time to win medals. It is quite fast-paced but you can continue playing after the timer has finished and replay the levels to help you memorise locations of items. A nice variety of mini games.

An Oldie but a Goldie
I only demoed this game because of the reviews written by Lindy20 and nickymannarge (sorry if I misspelled the names). I really love this game.
It's not the newest all singing and dancing style with graphics to die for, but it is a really great game. It's a mix between HO and TM and I found it quite challenging. You have to serve customers fast with your HO skills and rake in the profit to help grandma's shop to survive. It's one the ones you won't want to miss if you're a real TM or HO fan or a mix between the two.

Fun Hidden Object, Love the Shops, Great Career Progression
I like the layout of the main game play window. Each store is a tab and you can easily move between stores. For a specific store, the days are organised in a organizer/diary planner with an entry for each day. I felt like I was living her life to help her be a more well-rounded person as I had to focus on Fitness, Personal, Outlook and Career. Each tasks gave very simple but useful tips that can be applied to real life. It also shows that work/life balance is need in order to reach your dreams.
I expected to breeze through the first level like I usually do in other games but this one was difficult. I had to go through and memorize where the items were to make it easier. Well in real life you have to remember the locations of items on counters, aisles too.
As I progressed in the levels then Nichole earned more money to add items to her Room. This also unlocked more tasks and stores. This showed great creativity because in real life you learn more, face tougher challenges, earn more and purchase better things.
I really enjoyed this game and would recommend it to everyone.

This game plays like a time management but its also a hidden object game. It plays like gardenscapes except there is no garden to fix up. Instead you are character building the girl who you play and making her into a career, savvy business woman who can take on the world.
You go through 6 different store environments picking out what the customers want. As time goes on you have more customers so it gets tricky trying to give her the right life choices so you get better power ups and faster skills to beat the clock. All levels can be passed on even if you don't get the expert score. I found that at first, I would be sooo bad at the game especially trying to locate the various objects but as time went on, Id get faster and faster because I knew what to look for. Each time Id come back into the game, Id be slow all over again but 5 minutes in and I was back to fast finds.
There are 3 kinds of hint buttons. The first is just finding an object and once its leveled up, it will find 3 items at a time for you. The second is hearts and they give it to one person who is impatient with you but leveled up it will give it to all people who are waiting which is really helpful to get 100% for mood. The third one is a freezer and at first it just freezes the time of one person but upon leveling up it will freeze everyone's boards. Getting to each customer in order keeps their patience in check too and make sure you get the VIP people because they give you big tips and gifts which raise your 3 hints up. There were times I had a lot of hints and times I had none but since you can replay all the levels, in the end I was able to master the entire game with all 100% on the moods and all within expert time.
Also, inbetween certain levels, there are mini games that are a nice break between hidden object scenes. Some were spot the differences, matching, find the one that doesn't belong, putting puzzles together. I found it really fun and they are all skippable. If you skip though, you do not get the money and the money is how you take classes to advance yourself personally, physically, career and education.
All in all, I wish this game had been longer. It has 6 shops and is long already but I never wanted it to end. I liked how each shop had a different theme but still kept items from previous shops so it was easy to adapt to the new shops. There were all kinds of different things to find like if a customer wanted stamps, you had to look through a book and pick the appropriate one, same with household cleaners, coins and other stuff.
I recommend this game both to hidden object lovers and time management fans. Its just a fun game!!

Very similar to Gardenscapes in that you have to find objects for customers. The difference here is instead of a backdrop which has a slight comedic effect this one does not really have that just a rather drab career progression back-drop.
I only demoed around 30 minutes, and whilst it all 'plodded' along, there was nothing to 'wow me' and certanily nothing that would make me spend a credit, bonus punch or cash on it.
No sorry not for me, ok if you want a 1 1/2D game but apart from that no I can not recommend the game.
