Monument Builders: Statue of Liberty
Nice Historical TM
I liked this. As others have said it is 'child-friendly' in that the game-play is 'child's play' and there are no 'dark themes'. This will be a good edutainment game for children who are learning about buildings and famous monuments at school as the historical information is factual as well as easy to digest.
As others have said there is a lot of 'horse-wagon' clicking and the graphics are not exactly 21st century, but for a game like this I don't think that particularly matters. For me this was like a history lesson wrapped up in a solid TM.
Whilst this review is based on the PC trial version, I have tried the 'Eiffel Tower' version on the IPAD and personally think that this game is possibly more suited to that version as you have a bit more intimacy within the game-play that somehow works better with this game. Failing that though if you want a history game, and learn everything you ever wanted to know about the Statue of Liberty then I would heartily recommend getting this game (or at least giving the trial run a punt).

Too much like the 1st!
Sometimes change is good. The 1st Monument Builders was an okay game to pass the time while I anxiously awaited a release of another TM game- however I found the goals in both games to be a little difficult. There is way too much clicking involved and the time it can take to complete a level is long enough for me to become bored with the game!

I've loved all the monument builders. This one didn't do it for me mainly because it was too easy to achieve gold. The graphics were poor. The only improvement I saw was how little it took to click away the bad guys.

Didn't care for this at all
I am not a fan. I think it was too repetitive, graphics were elementary, and did not keep my attention at all. I found myself waiting for the trial to end so I could be lifted from my misery. Not a time management game as someone else said. Even when the time runs out, you're still trying to finish the task. The large green arrows on the game board are annoying.

Strategy game that bites the dust
I dont quite like this series of monument builders. This is the 3rd/4th installment of the same game. Players from 1st game will have a lot of familiarity in game play, but it can get quite confusing after a while.
The graphics was ok, but the characters were pretty small, (tiny) in fact.
It lacks funny, witty characters a la Kingdom Chronciles, My Princess etc similar strategy/tmg

Not a fan
I wasnt impressed, it was very repetive, and boring.
i couldnt even make it through the one hour trial.
The facts are interesting, but not interesting enough to purchase the game for.

I keep trying these monument builders because i like the premise, but the substance is outrageously disappointing. Obviously foreign (not USA or UK), it is slow paced and frankly mindless. NO strategy!! destroy this block...wait...destroy another block...wait...yes, totally that boring! They have learned nothing obviously

Hate the bouncy green arrow
I really don't need a big green arrow bouncing up and down on the screen. I can follow the game and don't need to be lead by the hand like a five year old child.
Please get rid of the arrow!
