Fairy Godmother Tycoon
As a fan of TM games, I gave this a try based on the fact there's been so few TM releases on BFG of late. I actually really enjoyed this, although I was a little dubious when I downloaded the trial version.
You're running a potion shop for Fairy Godmother and you need to buy ingredients to make potions for each day. This also involves setting prices based on the forecast for how many people are likely to need said potion, upgrading your shop, hiring Goons to muscle punters into trying your shop instead of your competitors' shops and researching new potions.
I only downloaded this about 4 days ago and I'm already on my second play-through (although this may be to do with the fact there's still no decent TM games being released at the moment!)
A solid 4/5 for me. Hope the review helps. Just give the trial version a go if, like me, you're a TM fan!

Fairy Godmother Tycoon???
Fairy Godmother Tycoon is a game where your Fairy Godmother comes to you in need of help! You agree and have to go through different lands and different levels by curing the town's people of funny illnesses. You have to supply, price, sell and manage your potion business, as well advertising, working, managing the potion business. But sometimes you need to ask for help from cupid, freelancers or even the loan shark! This game is very good at occupying me for a long length of time, as I just wanted to move up the level. The visual quality is detailed and a great cartoon and the storyline makes sense; level of challenge is huge so keeps you busy and the fun factor isn't too high but is still ok, as it keeps me entertained. Recommended for kids aged 9 - 13!

It was ok...
The game is fun at first, but it gets pretty boring quite fast.
I couldnt finish the trial. It takes too long to gather money because of having to buy the ingredients daily, and
I also found it to be to repetitive.

Like Lemonade Stand
This game is OK, if you like the repetitiveness of a lemonade stand game. You work to beat the competition, given resources and demands that change every day. It was lots of fun at first, but then the sameness of the levels became tedious. I never even finished the game...I just didn't care any more.

At the High Ratings on this game
You do the same thing over and over
And the last town takes Forever
to put everyone out of business
I found the game only okay for the first half
and Very Very Boring for the second half
The story is cute as are the little fairy tales that come up
as you are playing the game
otherwise this game is just a lose for me

Can't Believe I Wasted My Time Playing This!
I really hated this game. Never hated a game more.
The graphics were good
The storyline was ok. I liked how your name was used in it, and it was a realy fairy-tale setting, but it needed voices.
The game involves no skill at all, and there is hardly any gameplay involved. All you have to do is set up your shop and make sure you have enough supplies for the day.
Had no fun whatsoever with this game. Only managed to play 10 minutes of it.
This is supposed to be a time management game, but it wasn't. It was more like a "watch as people walk in your shop and don't do anything else game"
I really cannot believe I made the mistake of playong this. Don't make the same mistake.
