Grave Mania: Undead Fever
My kids 13,and 14 and I love this game! It is challenging as you move on up but if you just want to mess around it has the no timer choice which is awesome! Cute story line that my kids actually DON'T skip through... They want to read it and see what's happening... Can't wait to see if there is going to be a collectors edition lol!

After being bored to death with all of the HOG games that seem to be the only new games lately, I was happy to give this one a try. I was pleasantly surprised!! This game is different from Dash games and very similar to Sally games, but with a somewhat morbid twist. The characters are cute and while the game isn't overly challenging, it's just fun and addicting!
The puppet show is not necessary and a waste of time, but I just skip through that. The down-sides: the game is very short and that is disappointing since I bought the game. I would love a part 2, but longer and worth the money. Also, the graphics are not crisp and clear (maybe it's supposed to be that way since they're zombies?) and sometimes the bubble over their head is blocked by other zombie's bubbles so it wastes a fraction of a second to see what the next task is in the process.

Fun, if you like zombies~
I'm always looking for a new TM game. This one is unique in that it has a zombie theme rather than diner, farm, or fashion like most tm games are. The play, however, is not that much different than something like Spa Mania or similar "station" games - you move "customers" (zombies, in this case) to different stations, perform different services on them (mini-games) and send them out the door. And, you have to earn enough money doing it to move to the next level. Upgrades are available, but I'm not sure how they help, having only played the demo.
The gameplay is fast, so you will have plenty to do. The zombies don't get mad sitting there, but they will get up and walk out if you take too long. Unlike living customers, though, you can bonk them on the head and make them sit back down. In later levels, they might also infect you - but you do get a tonic for a cure.
I'm not a big fan of horror or zombies, and parts of this are gross (roaches in the transition screen and having to squash bugs when cleaning caskets - ewww!) However, it's kinda cute in it's own way. Especially clever are the little sayings during the loading; it's about time someone thought to add some entertainment instead of the constant and annoying "loading....loading....loading" message. You will definitely get a good chuckle out of this, if you aren't too grossed-out!
I usually avoid gross games like this, but I'm kinda glad I tried it. It was more fun than I thought it would be. A little too gross for my taste, but I am giving it a thumbs up!

This TM game is so FUN!!!! Love the graphics, the music and the storyline. Such a neat idea to put the dead back into the grave. Also, the stations are unique as well as the task needed to be done at the stations. Everyone will enjoy this game.

Entertaining with Grave undertones
This was the first 'scary' time management game I've seen. And everything about it was scary, but it was levelled out a bit for adults with a blend of finger puppet storyline and comic relief that was kind of special.
I don't want to see any more time management games like this one, or see time management games go all gorey and scary, but this was fun and edgy for me.
My favourite bit was the "loading next screen" window which included "eating brains" alongside "doing hair" as reasons why it was taking so long to load.
I wouldn't recommend it for little kids.

It was ok
This game is a close relative to the numerous spa games out there. It does have a whimsical flair with a finger puppet narrated storyline. It's not gory, just happily macabre.
Usher impatient zombies around to various stations where you sometimes have to play a mini game before you move them onto the next station. Upset any zombie and you have you hit them over the head before they leave the shop.
Like many spa games and the travel agency games, I found a few of the mini games more annoying than fun - like filling a test tube to a line without being under or over. The games are timed.
I could take or leave this game. I'm not buying it right now.

Grave Mania is Okay
I have been dying (no pun intended) for a new time management game to come along and I hoped this would appeal to me. Sadly, it didn't. I am more of the "Dash" and "Mania" type time management person rather than this type, though, so this is solely based on my personal preference. I hope others enjoy it! :)

Fun but not to die for
Grave Mania is a cute little game. I love anything that has to do with zombies, which is why I tried it out in the first place. It does become rather repetitive after a while, and the tasks get a bit daunting. I can also see, by the speed I have gone through the trial, that I would be finished with it in a day, and then I'd just have a boring game that I paid for and was stuck with.
Do I recommend it? Sure. It is fun enough, the story line is cute. Do I recommend *buying* it? Not at all.
