Legends of Atlantis: Exodus
Mission-based, construction/repair-based make up some of my favorite time management games. Add the option to work through it untimed for days I just want to relax and I am sold.
Legends of Atlantis has an interesting story line, rather than restoring villages, you need to rebuild enough infrastructure (like sawmills) to rebuild roads and clear debris to allow the good citizens to evacuate. Gameplay resembles Roads of Rome and My Kingdom for the Princess, and with more than 50 levels I foresee hours of fun ahead.

The Total Package !
This is one of the best building games I've ever played it has a little bit of everything gorgeous graphics, great story, adorable characters, great music and never ending fun. This is a building game where you gather your resources, clear debris, build sawmills, wells, mines and rescue villagers along with that this also has some match 3 and hidden objects thrown into the mix. You have your goals to meet and yes this can be a challenge the further along in the game you go but if you don't get the gold the first time around you can replay the level this also has a relaxed mode as well for those that don't like the timer. This one also offers power ups to help you meet your goals quicker also it has the fortune machine where you spin and click and see what you get it will give you extra resources either bricks, wood, water, and the sun is the wild card. The levels are fun and long and this is a lengthy game which is loads of fun from start to finish. I've played many building games but this one by far is my absolute favorite it has everything you are looking for in a great building/ time management game. This game is solid and has all the replay value you could ever want. This is one that will never get old and be just as much fun every time you play it. This one really stands out it's fun, challenging, and gorgeous it is the total package. Give this one a try I don't think you'll be sorry it's absolutely awesome. Thank you Big Fish for this wonderful game and please keep these coming we want them, we play them, we love them and this is one of the best.

Oceans of FUN on BFish!
Thank you Big Fish!
This game is really fun, I love builder/TM games so I tried the demo and knew I had to buy it. The minigames add a lot of fun too. Even though I don't like HO games, it's fun as a minigame cause you know the next level will be different.
I've been a member of Big Fish for several years without posting reviews, but I do want to give praise for this game.

A TM for TM haters!
Playing in Relaxed mode you can enjoy beautiful graphics, user freindly instructions, and lots of fun helping people escape their devistated villages. Being somewhat TM challenged myself, I like the option of playing the game through in relaxed mode then going for the timed option.

Must be Christmas
with all these builders being released,
This is a very fun game, reminiscent of "Roads of rome,"
Adorable animations, lots of levels, (as you would expect in a builder) just plain fun, AS you can imagine by the title, the end of the world is near, and its your job to prepare the population.
its not too clickity click, there is a casual, and timed mode,
the custom curser was a little flighty, but turning it off worked fine.
if i had anything bad to say, it would only be that the icons to collect resources could be a little bigger. or brighter..

A fun time management game.
This one is up there with Roads of Rome and My kingdom for the princess.
Not to much story and the tasks are easy to understand, I like that kind of games. The little minigames are fun as well and even though it is simple there is hidden humor in the texts. One of the best things is that the game is not over in an instant like so many games these days.

Love the Time Management Games
I love, love, love this type of game...I am getting very sick and tired of the same old HOGs. Thanks for making another time management that gives you something different.
The graphics are quite nice and it keeps you hopping for the hour that I played it. The characters are amusing and you really have to pay attention to certain things to get an expert score every level. Which is what I ALWAYS try to do; if I don't then I keep replaying the level; lol!
Please make more of this type of game!!!! Thanks!

My first loved TM game!
I really enjoyed the resource management strategy potential in this game. But I REALLY love that I can play it in Relaxed mode and finish at my own pace.
This my first TM buy that I actually stayed interested enough to play the whole thing and it didn't feel like make-work.
I also learned to love the little intermittant M3 ball drop game, it got more interesting toward the end.
The interspersed Hidden object scenes were not necessary, however. Graphics were not very good in these HOS, but I'm assuming they were more tailored for the ipad app of this game than my PC. Luckily, there were not alot of these.
I played the whole thing in about 3 days.

Legend of Atlantis:Exodus is very much in line with the My Kingdom for the Princess series. You have to remove objects, re-build roads and buildings and all with limited resources. You can choose between relaxed and expert mode, but I couldn't find any explanation as to what I'd have to expect in expert mode, so I went for this expert :-). Quite frequently you run out of energy, wood, stone, water (to mention the ones I came across) and with the tasks the Queen of Atlantis expects you to do (fixing roads, buildings, collecting certain objects, etc) you really need to budget and try not to waste any resources unnecessarily.
I found the music a bit over-dramatised and annoying, but it can be turned off.
The story line is ok, Atlantis is threatened by frequent earthquakes which increase in magnitude. So you have to fix the roads to save the people.
Not too keen on the graphics. Nothing wrong with the quality, but it's like as if you look at a painting that looks as if the painter couldn't really be bothered on the day he painted it. And this is how perceived the game. It doesn't feel as if lots of love went into its creation.
I really would advise to do the one hour trial before purchase and if you haven't yet done, then take the time to do the tiral of My Kingdom for the Princess also, so you have something to compare it to. Personally, I favour Kingdom for the Princess over this one. Much more fun, challenge, nicer graphics and the music is really catchy.
Hope this helps.

Not bad but could be so much better
I had high hopes for this game, but my main issue with it is that it is so difficult to keep a flow going. It is similar to Roads of Rome/MKFTP in that you have to build roads in order to escape but for some reason this game did not grab me in the same way that those did. Perhaps it was because it just felt too similar but without the cute graphics!
It's not a bad TM/builders game but it just feels like it is lacking soul. That may sound silly but when I play I want to feel engaged and with this one I didn't.
Sorry BF - Must try harder.
