Fitness Bustle: Energy Boost
An Average TM With Some Drag
I usually like these types of games and did particularly like Burger Bustle, BUT, this game didn't have as much variety or fast, challenging interaction that Burger Bustle did. In addition, the "grab, drag, drop" was very inaccurate. I found myself repeating actions that should have "took" the first time I did it. It was okay, but I'm not going to waste a credit on it. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. Nice graphics. Annoying music and voices (thank goodness for mute).

I liked the Burger Bustle game, so I think I was expecting more out of Fitness Bustle. I played the whole trial, thinking eventually it would get better, and made it to the 3rd area (something about snow, I think it was), but in the end, this game was a trifle monotonous for me. There wasn't enough, I don't know, variety in what was going on. It was alright, but not gonna be one I would buy, even as a $2.99 deal.
Even though I was disappointed in the game, I'm always happy to find a new TM game that is halfway decent!

Not Very Challenging
Been playing this game level by level but it seems Way to easy and just over and over again no changed or really nice upgrades or anything, I wouldn't say give the trial version a go and if you like it buy it but its very much the same once you get more awards and things oh and the people in the gym say things over and over again and drives me crazy lol

It is fine for beginners.
I would say this is fine for beginners or for those who just want to kill some time.
The visuals were pleasant enough.
The music was okay, after awhile I just tuned it out. You are able to adjust the volume in game.
It is simple enough to play.
Not really fond of the upgrade set up.
I was able to play a good way into the game through the demo.
I probably won't purchase it though, for me the demo was fine, but didn't challenge me enough to want to buy it.
I will recommend it for a beginning player. But not for those who want a bigger challenge.

No Thank you.
This has been the first TM game I have not liked. There are many bugs in this game.
It seemed alright at first. Typical drag and drop game. Music is borderline. All the character comments are the same. The graphics seemed to drag as well the actions.
My game wouldn't let you keep the music off. It also would not let me get passed the second level. It seemed allot of actions were repeated with no further progression.
If all the bugs were ironed out and I could progress further in the game, I would buy it.

Gristleman's back and this time he wants your health!
This seems to be taking a backward step for me in terms of this kind of TM 'sub genre'. In that you are having to move the characters to the correct spot (al la Sally Salon the dash games) these games were ok games five or so years ago but I thought things had progressed slightly since then (or maybe it is me that has moved on). The 'soundbites' were similar to the ones of Ellie's Burger games (indeed she made an appearance) (I suppose to add to the continuity), but that again was something that didn't quite sit well, I a burger game, then a fitness game, surely an oxymoron?
The music was also the same as the 'bustle' games. and the layout and 'goals' for each day were also in the same format.
For me personally I prefered the burger games, as whilst there was a bit of moving the characters around it for me had a bit more depth (in that you had strategy in what to cook for the best profit etc), where as this I felt was taking a step back to the 'dash' games of old. If this is your thing then you will probably like this game, but personally I have moved on. I only played the game for around 15 minutes of the free trial so there may have been more depth later on but from playing the length I did I sensed a good flavour of what I thought the game was about.
Mr Gristleman is also back, now for burger games this added a fun whimsical play of names, but it again didn't (for me at least), sit well in a fitness game (though again I suppose it was added for continuity of the franchise). I can see the reason behind this though (greedy man wants profit), and the front story had VO's which was good (though the voice of Ellie seemed to have changed slightly), so that was something in its favour, but personally one star in a dark night does not quite do it for me.
I personally would not recommend the game but if you like this genre then I would say give the download a go.

it had Potentiel which was not used
Click and drag. Click and Insert. Click and place. A typical TM game... Click and... is not interesting in the long run. After 10 minutes I was bored after 20 minutes I had my time to shame.
