Egypt: Secret of five Gods
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.

Being a TM nut, I had to give this one a whirl. I gave the demo it's full hour, hoping that it would finally improve a little bit, but it never did. Not only is there a serious lack of instructions on some important details, but some of your tasks give you no instructions whatsoever. I decided to try and build a house to see if that would allow me more workers, which it did, but this is information that the players need to be told. There is also a great deal of mistaken information in what few instructions you ARE given. For example, you're told that the stone littering the roadways can then be used to build with. No, only one batch of white stone can ever be used and takes so long to respawn that you can generally only build one building before your time runs out. You're encouraged to build a farm, which gives one food each use, while the food you pick up (literally everywhere) gives four food each, so the farm is useless and a waste of precious stone and the time it takes to use it. I'm surprised to see some folks likening this one to the My Kingdom series; it's nowhere near the caliber of those. It could have been a fantastic game if a little more thought had gone into it, but as it is I can't recommend this one to anyone.

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.

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.

Absolutely stupid game.
After playing all my gods I thought this would be similar. It is not. The overhead view is monotonous. Boring! Do not waste your money on this game.

Definitely better out there
If you are looking for a fun T/M game then go to the Royal Envoy, Time Builders, Kingdom for a Princess or Roads of Rome series. There is definitely better value for money out there.
