Ballad of Solar
Great little gem of a TM
A very enjoyable game which I have completed. The graphics are very well done and the sound effects / music were very good, which is not the norm for TM games. This game held my interest from start to finish and was certainly immersive - I could have played for longer, had it been a longer game :-). A great play.

Seamless storyline, brilliant!!
I loved how it blended together without breaks, this is the first of it's kind i have played.
Beautiful graphics and music, i really enjoyed playing.
I played in relaxed mode, so wasn't too challenging. But there are harder modes if you choose.
Please make a number two!!!

Such a cute game!!
I love the graphics, they were very colorful and nice to look at.
The sounds are great, no annoying voices. All the voices they used are pleasant.
I loved the game play... it can be challenging but it can be easy in other parts.
Overall I would say this is a great game to get if you love TM games because it will keep you busy!!!
I bought the game before I was done with the demo!

The graphics are ok, I have seen better. I like that it is a combination of adventure and gather resources's games.The music is pleasant and the explanations are easy to understand and to interact with. All in all a win for me and I prefer TMgames.

Solid TM adventure with medieval fantasy story line.
Save the Princess, Save the world! A hearty adventurous time management romp through a cursed medieval land.
The game works well for those relatively new to TM games and want something absorbing, not too ridiculously hard, and with an actual interesting story-line that develops over time.
A solid TM game which you can play timed or casual. I played timed over the course of about a week. So the game length is decent. If you don't complete on time, that's fine. You can carry on, but you don't get a pretty gold star on the map, is all.
What creates and enhances the play-ability of this game are: the bright crisp cartoon graphics, engaging story-line, quality voice acting, entertaining conversational banter between characters, and great medieval atmospheric music and sound effects.
Game play is absorbing and needs focus and attention. Generally you should find yourself constantly clicking. If you find yourself in a long 'waiting' situation, then 8/10 times this indicates you need to rethink you strategy if you are playing on the timed Heroic difficulty.
So, go forth brave TM adventurers, and dig, beat, potion and chop obstacles out of the way to get your your Princess Lumina!! <Trumpet Fanfare>

A new type of time management
Same old rules, but a really big effort to change from classical time management games. You must be very attentive what and when to proceed, a lot of steps need a tool, a character and to get them you need a precise path in a very short time. I am playing it right now, and from the begining the expert mode is hard. Your heroes are a mage, a troll, a prince and each can accomplish different tasks.

Such a beautiful ballad
I quite enjoyed this game. It is along the same lines as other TM games - but with a bit of a twist. There are 2 modes of gameplay and each level has at LEAST 1 sublevel. If you choose the harder mode, all levels & sublevels are timed if you choose the easier mode, only half the level is timed. It's an interesting concept.
I thought the storyline was very good and the characters quite adorable, particularly Yord. I enjoyed that it had challenge to it without aggravating you. I did have to replay a few levels, but was able to complete in gold time by trying different strategies.
My only complaints are this: 1) The game is too short. Only 30 levels. 2) There is no 'trophies/achievements' section.
Whether it's worth the $7 is up to the player, I used a game coupon to get it and I don't regret it. If the game were longer & it had a trophy system I'd have given it 5 stars.
