Sweet Kingdom: Enchanted Princess
There are so few good TM games lately - I've been waiting for a great game like this. It pulls from a lot of popular games and combines to make a really fun, challenging game. Not perfect, but it's done well. Good graphics and sound. I always skip through the story, so I have no idea about that - just happy that you don't have to sit through anything. There is a lot of clicking - similar to Royal Envoy 2 - but you get used to it quickly. Challenging in that there isn't a ton of guidance - you're mostly on your own once they give you the basics.

Thank You BF Games!!!
I have been waiting so long it seems for another good TM game to come out. Finally! This game is very similar to Royal Envoy, which I loved and own both. I love Farm Frenzy games, and Island Tribe too. I would love to see more games like this come out to add to my collection of games. Too many HOG's and not enough TM/strategy games. I love building things, growing things and selling them. This game has it all!

Very challenging at the end!
This game is great for those of you that want a strategy game that is challenging. The levels get progressively more difficult to complete by the end of the day. I loved the fact that not every level can be won by using the same strategy. With 40 different buildings all producing a different product, it gets quite complicated at the end. Great game!

My Kind of Time Management Game
I really like this game alot.Entertaining and challenging at the same time.Have to figure out what you're going to build first in order to get the "gold star'.I think the donkey workers are great fun and having to tickle the dragon to wear it down is a novel idea to say the least.To me it's as entertaining as garden rescue and my kingdom for the princess series.

Not a slam dunk game, really challenging
Wow! I finally got the game based on the reviews. It is very like Royal Envoy in playing, but it is, I think, a much more challenging game. I got gold on the first 10 levels, but since then, wow, it got tough. Some of the levels, I missed gold by a few seconds, but frankly, I don't know if I can get gold on some of them, missing gold by a whole lot of minutes. I've had to restart some of the levels because I got myself boxed in. One thing that isn't very clear is which buildings are needed for getting which resources. In that, it's rather like Virtual City where you need certain buildings to say build a car, only in this case, you need certain building to get a fruit pie. And there is no help screen to show the link (it would have been really helpful). The graphics themselves are very well done. Storyline, eh, minimal. The challenge, and it really is a challenge, is finishing the level before it gets dark. Not a game, I think, for beginners in TM games.

Finally a great game that can compare with Royal Envoy and the likes. when I first started it I was unsure because I hold Royal envoy on such a high pedestal, but this game was fun, quirky and the donkeys are beyond cute! The levels were fairly easy to achieve gold until the last few where i had to redo them a few times. Some more challenges on the earlier levels would have been good, but overall the game was interesting and good quality.

Somebody call the donkey sanctuary!!!
This is a really really cute game. I bought this 'off piste' in that I didn't trial it before I bought it, for once my judgement was sound (this is a one off a rarity (not exactly known for my sound judgement)), anyway back to the game.
The game is of the the 'sweep the paths', 'harvest the crops', 'solves the tasks' type of game (Royal Envoy, Northern Tale esque), I knew this and had a few of these type of games (I even bemoaned in my Northern Tale review that they were all samey (though I did end up purchasing that game), this game though is very whimsical. I say this in that the 'donkey work' is done by err donkeys, which makes the game slightly 'off the wall' but good, as at least the 'pecking order of life' is being adhered to :).
The music and graphics are good for this type of game (you don't expect epic Oscar winning for either), but I have a feeling the game may not have been programmed in English as some of the dialogue does not flow grammatically,I am not a massive stickler, and know that 'poetic licence' can come into play,(much like this review (though I am British (does that count as being English)) but this was so I was struggling to understand exactly what was being said. That said, again in these types of games, this is not the 'overriding factor' of the game.
If you manage to complete a game before 'sunset' then you get an addition to the 'throne room' thus the more you complete the nicer the throne room. I will give a word of warning though as with most of these style of games on later levels (well past level 8 or so), you will need to start planning your 'game-plan' as I had to restart a couple of times because I started building without the gains to make money (i.e. building a market), also read the task list as I was building the wrong type of building and wondering why I was not completing the level :)).
I think overall this is a good game, and one which I think most who like this genre would enjoy (unless they have got a 'beef' against 'horses' doing the work (sorry a bit of a UK news joke), many apologies), but no overall this is a fun whimsical game that flows along just nicely.

Cute little game......
I really enjoyed this game. The graphics are lovely and the characters are really cute. It didn't matter if you went into nightfall to complete the level....of which I have done on several levels. If you like TM/Strategy games then give this a go....

A cheerful game
I?m hoping that BF will be making more of TM games in the future. Even though I like hidden games, I am getting tired of games that has horror stories. They are good for Halloween but not now. This game came in the right moment. Spring is here and I was waiting for something cheerful. I liked the visual, the houses, sawmill, market place. The donkeys and the men goes faster and the bars is easy to read. The developers did a good job with the job. Especially, when you can sell the products. The main problem that I have with this is again the mode. I do wish that there was two different modes: relax and challenge. There are people who either has an old computer, arthritis, or just want a game to relax with. People should have that option to do that. Either has the game be timed or not. That is the only problem that I can see.
The storyline is right for this time of year. I know some people may not like fairy tales (I also am tired with fairy tales) but if this game can in the right time. Another time, I would agree with others that this game is OK. This game is also good for people who is new in TM. A good beginner game. All in all, I can say ?Spring is here?. This game puts a smile on your face.
One more thing, I do like the donkeys.
