Legends of Atlantis: Exodus
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 my cup of tea
Most reviews have been positive. I am less enthralled with this one. I played the first hours and didn't purchase. I found the game play repetitive and a bit slow. I prefer time managements with more to do and with a busier pace. Ex: I love My Farm Life. I lose interest with waiting for the characters to chop wood, build roads etc. If you like a more measured pace then you may enjoy this one. The graphics were good, music tolerable and story interesting.

This seems to be aimed at young children. The graphics are simple and is the storyline and challenges. It is the sort of game that you can finish really quickly without much effort.

Does not compare to other builder/resource games
I disagree with most of the other comments on this game, the only thing your playing for in this builder game is trying to get expert level, which I felt was very easy.
There is no total score as with many of the other builder/resource games where in order to get the "highest score" you need to beat the expert time, plus have the most resources by the time you finish the tasks on each level.
In addition, there is no hidden object to find on each level to unlock bonus levels.
There is an achievements section. I managed to get several in my 1 hour of play time including the "lazy" achievement because my workers were waiting around for the crystal to power up.
I only played the one hour trial and the graphics were okay. The sound wasn't annoying, but this game was not a'tall challenging.
The mini games were extremely easy. I'm not sure why someone would want to play this game over and over again unless there was something competitive about playing it multiple times (perhaps at the end they show you're overall time played and you can try and beat that?).
Overall, I found it boring and not challenging.

There really is no need for thinking in this game. There is very little to do so it all boils down to clicking. Not a fan.

it looked a good game but the quality was so bad that it made it very hard to play and I got fed up with playing it after 10 minutes
