not much to it
I love time management games, however this one was not much of a challenge. It was very simple and fast to get through. I would not recommend buying it. The hour trial should get you through it.

I finished half the game in the demo.
This is a time management game.
Challenge is not too hard, the graphics could be better - seems old fasioned.
Good for beginners.
Play the demo before you buy.

Levels are short and easy. Not very challenging at all. It's like Roads of Rome, but for 3 year olds.

Maybe it will be better, but really poor art and graphics in this game!
So easy and sometimes silly tasks...
TM for children is ok, I think.

disappointing TM/strategy game
I am a big fan of TM/ strategy/build games like this but this is def not a buy for me!
first the sound is annoying even if i put it to low. second you have to click on the goblin creaters to give you back 20 seconds that they stole from you even before you started the level. In other words if you don't click these 5 goblins you loose a full minute of your time to get gold. And seeing for 1 level it only took me 1.08 minutes to finish a level these "20 second goblins" are not just some extra!
Furthermore when i read the game had 55 levels I got excited, but turns out, on average, it only took me about 2 minutes to finish a level! not the long playing game i thought it would be!
Because of the fast past of the little builder guys movement and the game in general, i don't really feel i had to develop a strategy. 9 out of 10 times i didn't even realize what i was doing and still got gold on 13 of the 15 levels that i played in the demo time.
Lastly it did not make sence to me that on some of the very first levels i "strugeld" to get gold but the further i got the more time i had left for gold.
Hoped it would be a nice new tm/strategy game but it was a big let down

Great Potential for TM game, lack of execution
As a fan of TM games, seeing this game has 55 levels, I gave it a shot and downloaded the trail version. During the hour of free game play it seemed that there is a potential in this game and it showed a little bit of challenge, so I bought the full version.
From that moment, my hopes shattered. The glimpse of potential I thought this game had was probably just getting to know the game.
The game strongly lacks of challenge, and playing through the levels, it didn't take me more than just few minutes, which you can count on one hand, to finish a level with a gold medal and it didn't take more than once to get that gold medal. In other TM games - as the game progresses it could be a real challenge to finish the level with gold medal (or 3 stars), and usually requires more than one attempt. In addition to that, the length of more advanced levels in other TM games is significantally longer, sometimes 20 minutes and more per level.
The game had great potential to be a very good TM game, but its challenging level is rediculous. I hope that if there will be a sequal, the developers will take the challenge level into account, and at least suggest few levels of difficulty - and the one in this game - should be its easiest.

Pluses and Minuses
This is a bit like Island Tribe on speed. I like the fact that the workers move more quickly than in a lot of these style games, so there isn't a lot of sitting around waiting while the workers go chop-chop-chop or whatever.
The music is truly awful. Worst music on any game ever in my opinion. I prefer to play my games with the music on, but not this one.
There aren't enough clear sound effects to tell you what's going on, eg when a building has produced resources.
Like other players I was annoyed when the pop-up window obscured where I was needing to click.
I also found that the game has bugs. A couple of times the workers have got stuck chopping logs and won't stop. On other occasions they won't come out of the camp to do anything. When this happens I have to close the game entirely and re-start. Reeeeally annoying.
I don't understand the point of clicking on the gnomes for extra time. Where is the timer bar? Am I missing something, because I can't see it. What is the point of gaining extra time if you can't see the timer bar?
Oh, and the hero Gerald, couldn't they have made him...well, a bit more heroic?
OK, I admit I bought it, because I'm not a HOG fan and I'm starved for new games. But I couldn't in all honesty recommend it. It could have been much better.

Maybe OK for beginners
As a seasoned TM game lover, I found this one was lacking. The challenges never got higher as you progressed. I felt like I was playing a large tutorial.
The graphics leave a bit to be desired, and the timing seemed off. For example if you need 2 food to be able to complete an action you have to wait often a few seconds after your hero returned with the food before you could move. I often had to click 3 or 4 times with no hero's out before the action would 'take'
If you have never played a TM game, this may be a good one to start with to see what it's all about, but if this is your style, don't waste your money.

Not my favorite by far
I love these sorts of time management/strategy games. This one has potential but is not good the way it is. The music/sound is annoying. The resources needed to accomplish a task are hard to see. The windows that pop up block you from you clicking where you need to click. Didn't enjoy this game.
