New Yankee in King Arthur's Court
The game is very fun although not too challenging. But after level 40, it just starts over again, and the "living water" situation is never explained.

Can't wait for the second one!
This is one of my favorite, if not my favorite time management game, plus cute story line.
Hope a part two comes out soon!

Fun to Play...Not most difficult though
The first 5 or so levels are VERY basic. I was almost ready to pack it in and then the game got a bit more challenging. Every so often I would hit a level that would be enough of a challenge to get gold that I stayed in it. Overall, it's easy and I finished the game very quickly. It was enjoyable though. The ending is a bit strange...very abrupt and never allowed to complete the king's mission. The story line could have been more developed, I guess that's where the sequel will come in????

It was okay
This game was okay, but I didn't love it. The gameplay was good and challenging enough that I had to do some of the levels over to get a gold score, but the storyline was pretty lame, and I had no desire to play it again after I finished it the first time. If you are looking for a game that has an intriguing story or one that you can play many times, this isn't the game for you.

Fun watching them do all the work.
Love these games and am always waiting for more like these to download.The graphics are great and trying to beat the clock gives you the determination to always aim for the gold trophy. Thanks bigfish for this one its great.

simply too short
Happily, the mechanics of this title were smoother than any other TM game I have played. So I bought it on sale. The graphics are cute. The levels are pretty easy...I got gold on the first try on all but a few of them. Only took three tries for gold on three levels. I would have liked a gradual progression of difficulty. And the game was way too short. An okay buy for 2.99. Good for TM beginners.

After trying the demo, I brought this game as I love all the TM, especially building, repairing roads etc games. It would be unfair to compare this with other games that do similar things, this game is rightfully in it's own class. The sound effects, visual, storyline & fun factor are great, the only drawback isn't an untimed mode & so will have to go back & try & beat the clock. Well done!

Fun but was over quickly
New Yankee in King Arthur's Court is a fun little game that is not overly challenging.
It does have the aspect of having 3 levels of play for each level, gold, silver and bronze. So for those that prefer to play at a more relaxed level the option is there without any repercussions other than not receiving a gold or silver marker on the game map.
Like a lot of other games of this genre, it can become quite repetitive but for me it did maintain enough 'fun factor' to enjoy it to the end.
I found the storyline quite obtuse, and the ending definitely left me thinking 'is that it?' The developers have chosen to try and create an ending where as you will need to play the second game (this is what was hinted at) to capture the unknown inhabitant of the castle at the end.
I have no idea what the 'fountain of youth' has to do with this game as you never actually come across it, so that left me scratching my head a little.
So in all, the game is quite fun and not overly challenging. It would have been better if it was a little longer and the storyline actually made sense.

New Yankee in King Arthurs Court
Very cute game. Very happy theres finally a TM game instead of another HOG. Enjoyed this one very much. A few levels didnt get the gold but went back and played again and received it. Would of been nice if you got a trophy or something when you did get the gold on all levels, but overall not a bad game.
