Egypt: Secret of five Gods
I so wanted this to be fun....but,,,,
At first I was excited because it looked a little like MKFTP, which I happen to enjoy....but it was nothing like it. Boring boring boring...
After about 10 minutes of playing this repetitive resource gathering game, I gave up.
I am REALLY itching for a DECENT buidling strategy game.

Wow, I was disappointed. I went through four levels and deleted it.
The directions on this game are extremely vague and confusing. There seems to be a lack of translation with this game. Due to the fact that the instructions are lacking, it's obviously a little more tricky to figure it out.
The characters are static, lifeless and kind of boring. There's no real "feel' to the storyline and just point and click results. The music is okay for the period, but I feel can get tedious to listen to.
Whereas I love TM games like Roads of Rome and this game tries to be like it, it's just too blah. Sorry.

What else is knew?
I'm afraid to complain too much, because we don't get many time management games, and I'm concerned they will stop coming if I say what I really think about this game.
Get ready to click, click, click. Why couldn't the gold mine, the farm and the stone quarry just automatically add pieces as time passes rather than have me click my mouse to death? I don't think I would've mind my little man running back to his home all the time. Constantly clicking to retrieve supplies is about as annoying as riding a bike with no pedals!!!!

Average Game, Creepy Graphics
If you like this style of game, this offers exactly what you expect, nothing new here.
The graphics, however are creepy. The main worker just repulses me. If the game play was better or more innovative, this could be ignored. But it isn't, so I recommend passing on this one.

Not worth the time, I didn't even get beyond the first level and called it quits and deleted game.
Didn't get beyond first level! Was not worth the time, I didn't even get beyond the second round of playing the game and deleted it. Window area was not full screen and too small to keep me interested. I love time management but this one missed the mark. Disappointed. Most of these games are really great, this was a first one that lost me.

I found this game too boring for me. I usually play the whole trial but stopped after half and hour. The graphics and sound were quite poor aswell I'm glad I didn't waste my money on the full version.

Not worth the money
I did not even complete the 1 hour trial, there are better time management games out there.

Same old, same old, same old story.
The gods are happy, treat the people well. Other gods interfere, ruin the people's happiness. Good gods leave their people in despair to the evil gods. An emissary is sent, by yet another god, to rebuild the nation.
Yes, this is a build-it game but, and I haven't read the reviews, I am assuming it's the first ever of its kind and has been around for many years. At least, the way it played on my computer looked like it. Small screen, couldn't see anything. The writing so small I couldn't even see it with my nose to the screen. No viable instructions.
Why did BFG bring this back out of the vault. It's time to clean the vault out and toss some of these games into the pond.

It was a time management game, as many others, Except that you do not get the information you need. I got through the first three levels, and on the fourth, amoght the tasks is "Use the Speed bonus" What speed bonus? Where can if find about the speed bonus?
Frankly I might as well uninstall it, and find something better..

I love these type of games but have not progressed all that far in this game even though I bought it because the mini games do not have overrides. On of them is a slide puzzle, I HATE slide puzzles and will not complete this game so now all of the rest of the levels are not available to me because I cannot get past this level. That is wrong, you should always give people an out rather than forcing them to do something they do not want to.
