A Gnome's Home: The Great Crystal Crusade 3.7 5 114 114
small but cute It is not so different from all the other games that gather resources and then build sawmills, factories etc. It is a bit cuter, mainly because it is using little gnomes to get things done. The graphics in the beginning are very nice and whimsical with pleasant music. When it comes to the actual playtime the gnomes are a tiny bit too small to get the whole effect. The graphics seem to suffer when they are being used in the game. Story pretty much does not matter but has you doing things for them to build and upgrade things like a castle. I am not sure if I am going to buy it but since I am pretty much done with all my other time management games, I just might. One thing that I do not like is that I have to repeatedly have to click on the food bushes because they hold a lot of food and they do not regrow. And the resources get gathered by me with a sweeping motion across it.I also can not click on a task to get done unless the worker is completely done.The trees look almost too cute to cut, they also do not regrow. Fun in small portions. July 10, 2012
Enjoyable, Replayable I was at first skeptical about this game as the level of challenge sometimes seemed inconsistent. Most levels have an appropriate degree of challenge but some levels are hair-tearing, ridiculously difficult to get gold (level 22 comes to mind) and some are just plain easy. But after playing it through a few times, I actually came to like this game quite a bit. I have enjoyed replaying it several times so I'd say I've gotten my money's worth out of it. There were a few annoyances though. One is when you have a gnome standing right next to something and yet when you click on that object to be worked on, another gnome comes running from the house, taking up precious time. You have to time the click just right in order to get the nearest gnome to work on something and this can be frustrating. I also wish this game had a highest score feature. Because I found it so fun to replay, it would be nice to keep replaying and try to beat your old score. And a minor annoyance was just having to wait for the gnomes to stop dancing around and thanking you at the end of each level before you could click on and continue. I usually skip those kinds of animations. Overall, a good diversion and money well spent. I would happily play a sequel. July 16, 2013
Lots of fun I don?t know why I put off trying out this little time management builder from Blam! Games for so long. It is cute, fun, and funny, and actually pretty challenging for something set in a fantasy kingdom. So, there is this lovely little kingdom filled with little gnomish people, and somehow they have ticked off a fire witch, Flamia. It is our job to get things back in order, plus find artifacts that will price together to make an artifact based on the four elements to defeat Flamia in the process. This runs as a typical builder. We get a little worker compound, and we are set to doing certain tasks to complete an area, like cleaning debris for wood resources, picking berries for food, but also using base resources to be refined as in wood to lumber and berries to jam. I think the berries are red currants, that?s what they look like. Our workers are gnomes and they arrive via steampunk airship. We also mine for gold and trade berries and jam for wood to be brought in my airship. Each region is ruled by a minor gnome noble that is in tune with his or her area. With each successful level, we get a little more of the home kingdom back, and uncover the elemental areas. I really had a good time with this cute little builder. A Gnome?s Home: The Great Crystal Crusade reminds me of games like Rescue Team, but has elements of 7 Wonders games as well. It is worth the time to look into if you enjoy builder games.

Well done, but not my style I give this game a pretty high rating because over all, the graphics are high quality with beautiful color, the theme is magical/whimsical -exactly what I like in a game, and the characters move about pretty quickly with decent maneuvering capabilities. I'm not really into this type of game play, however, i.e. clearing roads, fixing road cracks, collecting resources. Just not my idea of fun. Therefore, I will not purchase the game. However, if you are into this type of game play, I think you will enjoy the over all package this game has to offer. Thanks. July 13, 2012
Benefit of the doubt Really cute game.. I like that it is timed. I gave it 4 stars but a part of me wanted to give it 3 stars. Because, when i pick berries and chop trees i want the food and wood to register immediately and not have to mouse over stuff. I also don't care about having to hire workers for the factories. So, it is a NO buy for me because of this. But, I know there are people that will love this game.. so do try it for yourself. July 10, 2012
Simple game, but very difficult I purchased the game when my time limit expired because I did not want tog be defeated by a silly TM game. The story line is similar to Roads of Rome, My Kingdom series and the Kingdom Chronicles. I usually play the first time on untimed to check out the games prior to playing on a time limit. Howver; as previous reviewers noted, there is no untimed level in this game. However, I had to purchase as I wanted to see what was going to come next. During the tutorial levels, I did not make a gold medal on every level, and have had not been very consistent in even achieving silver medals on the next two levels. When my time ran out, I did not even think abou it before I had hit the "buy" button. Like all games, there are things you enjoy and things you would like the developers to change. For me, it is nice to see a new game that is not dark and more of a suspense horror story. I am sovery tired of them. July 10, 2012
Cute It is similar to other strategy games with just a few tweaks. The difficulty is that the time to accomplish the tasks to get the gold is a little too short I think but if you enjoy a challenge then this game is for you. The supplies don't get replenished but that also is what makes this game a challenge. If you enjoy these types of games then this is a must for you. July 10, 2012
a nice strategy game A quite nice strategy game. Very beautiful music but the graphics could have been much-much better, too simple for me. Nice simple story , like a fairytale. With some quite challenging levels. Cute buildings , the characters were a little small than other strategy games . But an overall good game. Strategy game lovers might it find less interesting and good than other games of the kind. But I would give it a try... July 10, 2012
Good game the graphics are cute, the game play requires planning but so far the goals have been obtainable, not on gold everytime, due to time constraints. the jam factory and lumber mill provide resources that renew. basically its my kiingdom for a princess with gnomes. July 10, 2012
3.5 Stars (based on the demo) This is a very challenging TM game. It is fun, but requires patience if you are looking to get Gold status on all the levels. I am still on the fence about purchasing the full game. Personally, I think I'll wait till I can pay a discounted price, then decide if I want to buy it. July 10, 2013
