If you want a run-around-and-collect-upgrade tm, this one is pretty good. Not much challenge to it, and I noticed that some of the later levels were easier than some earlier ones. Still, the graphics are nice, I personally enjoyed the music and enjoyed the fast movements of the collectors and the speed at which goods were reproduced. All in all the type of game you can put your mind on automatic to play... and sometimes that is very, very nice. Enjoyed it!

Fun though not very challenging
This is a fun TM game, though there are no levels of difficulty, so it got to be pretty easy after a while. It was fun to play when I wanted something that wouldn't tax my brain too much.

not as good
I am so desperate for TMG that I bought this one with a discount.Otherwise I would have passed. The graphics are good, music gets annoying.Workers work faster and resources come faster than other well known games like this. I breezed through the levels, there is no real challenge.The catching the gobblins is kind of cute and I like that I can click on task that I want done without having to wait for them to finish one.But it all goes really fast, too fast. So i would wait for a longer one. However if you like LOTR, you might get a small laugh out of the You shall not pass level. That was cute.

Great except for glitches!
I loved playing the demo of this game. It's not too hard and if you've played similar games, should be fairly easy. If not, then you will have fun. Helps to use the tutorial if you are new to this type of game. My favorite part is at the end of the level when the workers jump up and down for joy!

I love the TM games like Northern, Kingdom, Island, etc.; however, it was not as challenging as I expected.
Positives: Not much brain power needed. Fair story line (restore the kingdom and help the locals). Multi-clicks enabled. Resources generate faster than other TM games. Good graphics and colors. Catch the goblins for extra time. Easy to make gold status on each level.
Negatives: the workers seem to rest after building. Really easy to meet "gold status". Made it to level 18 in trial (over half way through the game).
Good as a free or 2.99 game and again good as a no-brainer easy to win game.

Fun, but not as good as the others
Being a huge Roads of Rome/Island Tribe fan, I was excited to see a new series released. The concept is the same, collect various items (bricks, food, gold- etc) to complete a pathway to the exit or defeat baddies. However, this game lacks the sound effects my TM heart desires and the levels are quick and pretty easy. Some TM fans might like this, but for me it wont be making my favorite list just yet- it really doesn't compare to the games mentioned above. It has potential to be a great game, just needs some tweaks! Also I had to reload the game because it froze a few times. My characters would not come out of the house to collect items =/

Not My Choice in Strategy Games
I found the downside of this game to be that the game itself actually dictates what task you must perform next. There is too much character verbalization/interjection telling you what you must do next, instead of letting you discover it for yourself. It would be better to have an option to turn off tutorials as each tutorial screen appears. There is a point when you no longer need the guidance, and these interjections only get in the way of enjoying the game.

Alright to pass the time if the grass is too slow to watch grow
This game would be good for a brand new time management type gamer.
It has the feel of recue team or My kingdom for a princess, but without any challenge level at all. The story line was ho hum, and it just felt very "thrown together" really
It passed some time for me, but for the ten bucks it cost, I could have done something a lot more useful with the money!

I playd this game without having to retry one single level. For me there was no challenge and so...less fun. I think it's a good game for someone who tries a time management game for the first time.

I love the road clearing games, and the demo was promising so I bought the game. What a disappointment. The game didn't become more challenging. I got gold on every level with only having to play a handful of levels twice. And on most levels I was left with quite a bit of time left. This is not normal for me. I usually have to play most levels multiple times and maybe get hints from a forum. I expect a TM game to keep me busy for much longer than this.
