Come rain or shine...or a bit of both!
Great fun and a new concept in TM. You control the weather by buying basic weather such as sun or clouds then combining them to create the weather you need to make your crops grow, eg two basic clouds combined creates rain, you can also break apart your combinations to get back to your basics. You can also build solar stations, wind turbines etc to create power for factories you buy to process your crops. There is lots to do on this one and some tactical thought is required. The graphics were great, music was average and the level of challenge was just right, you have to work to get expert. I definitely recommend this game even to non TM fans. It keeps you on your toes and doesn't get boring or repetitive.

Weather the Weather
Yes, a TM with a different twist. I like TM games & Strategy games even more. This is a great combination of both. I didn't care for the music so I turned it down. I also had trouble reading the instructions & had to restart the game almost at every new level inorder to have enough time to read them. The game play is good & smoothe which is basically that you are given tasks to accomplish (crops to grow, rubble to clear, roads to build, etc) & you use different types of weather to do it. I found this game challenging & fun: A great game for older children of all ages.
WARNING: You Do Have To Think!

i love builders
what a cute game,, instead of human workers, yuo start each level with certain weather, and have to buy others.u control weather,, but its the same principal, seems to be 30 something levels by looking at the screenshots, you have upgrades, roads to clear,,, seems to be a fun long game,, especially to get gold,,,btw you can continue without getting a medal another buy for me :D

New Type Of TM
It's a cute, fun and challenging strategy / time-management game. I bought it after 56 mins of playing.
The game system is basically a farm-type time management with a little bit of building combined. However you are playing the farm owner but the helper(?# of the Weatherman. The storyline is somewhat poor #who is the weatherman and who are you playing?# and the instruction is confusing at the beginning. But I found it very interesting once I got used to it.
In this game, you use weather units#?# like sun, cloud, and wind to make the plants grow, produce electricity#for upgrading farms or powering the factory), or put out a fire. You can combine two units into a different unit, ex: cloud + cloud = rain cloud, wind + rain cloud = thunder cloud. You can also break them back into the original units or sell them and get full refund. That makes a lot of flexibility in the strategy part. I like the idea very much.
It reminds me of "My kinddom for the princess" that makes you think what to do first and next and keep trying for the best steps in order to get the best time. There is a little defect that the timer starts at the beginning of each level (even when you are still reading the instruction), but not at the first move or click. So I usually have to spend some time to read the instructions and purposes, think for the first steps, and then restart the level so I can start to move at the very beginning without losing time.
In general, I enjoy this game very much. I hope to see more decent TM/strategy game like this one appear in the near future.

This game is really different to the other time management games out there, and the levels are more challenging then most other games.
You get scored on how fast you complete the level and will either get a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place.
Graphics are bright and engaging, but not too many controls to feel panicked.
If you want something a little different then try this one!

A new take makes a good game
This game is pretty fun. It becomes challenging rather early on in the levels if you're trying to make gold - which I always am. The music is average, cheery background. The only thing I would like with the visual quality is that the writing would be a little larger when the man speaks, but otherwise it's good.
I like trying to anticipate what weather I will need and having to break up the combinations to create new ones. It's a good time management game that I'll probably get with my next club credit.

A different spin on TM games
On the plus side, it is untimed. I mean, you can still get gold, but if you take too long, you still get to finish the level. So you take all the time you need, if you are like me, who likes to stop and think.
It is resource managment game, with two provisos. You can combine or break apart your resources. You start with a sun and a rain cloud. With that you can get a also two shade clouds (breaking up the rain cloud), a shade cloud and a cloudy day (combine a shade cloud and a sun) or a sunny rain. (combine a sun and a rain cloud) as needed. You may need to break up and combine a lot at the beginning, when you are tring to get crops to grow. You might be forced to return a rain cloud to get a wind that you need. But once the crops start coming in, you can buy more of what you need, and things go smoothly.
The other proviso is what makes it fun. Suns, clouds and winds, do not stay put. They move about, and somtimes hide behind the signs. You have to hunt them down, and drag tehm where they are needed. That keeps you on your toes.
Then you need to power up too the solar stations, onr wind stations, or the thuner statios (a thunder cloud is yet another combination). You need the energy to be able ro repair roads and other things. And you need it to bring the crops to processing, as processed foods bring more than raw crops. In the end, you may have to decide how much energy you need, and wheher it is worth it to divert a sun or wind there, or even to tie up a cloud and wind for a thundercloud.
Now, the animatios is a bit dull - at least compared with others games, and there is not much action, apart from the growing of crops.... But then chasing after fleeing clouds is action enough....

Fun TM Game
Pretty basic TM game but with a new twist! I thought this was pretty fun. Not great but worth playing. I like that its not the same exact thing as every other TM game.
