Outta This Kingdom
fun, easy and very welcome
as others have said this is a great destresser - i enjoy TMG's but they can become, for me, addictive in constantly wanting to improve my times for each stage. i have bought a couple of games which are easy within their category and this one helps provide me with a range; it is also a game which i don't become all compulsive about and so can dip in and out if i only have say half an hour available. and i am bored with the large proportion of new games which are hidden object

I agree with the positive reviews!
This game is a lot like Ballad of Solar. Not as good, in my opinion, but definitely worthy of your money. Its a TM game mixed with cute graphics, corny story and characters (which is what makes this more of a joy to play) Any TM fan that don't take gaming seriously should at least try the demo.

Liked but usually love this kind
I think what bothered me most was the constant instructions. I wish I could have skipped them because they slowed me down.
Otherwise entertaining and fun. It's no island tribe but I plan to buy it.

A Fun and Cute Game!
This TM game is different from all others I've played in that it changes the environment to give you different backdrops as you progress through the stages! While you're performing many of the same tasks in each level, collecting food and wood, demolishing and building, collecting keys and tools, chasing away bad wolves and other bad abominables, the best part is that the story takes you to different locations, so it doesn't get so repetitive. None of the other TM games I've played so far change their background. It is very colorful and fun. There is a great deal of talking through the story, but it does make it 'family-friendly' and it's not too difficult. So read along, go on the adventure, and just have great fun with it!

Fun, easy-going, child-friendly game
I'm having a lot of fun with this typical building game, and I think it has to do with the fact that I can choose between 2 difficulties: timed and un-timed. With these kind of games, sometimes I just want to enjoy the storyline, and getting hung up on having to get a 'gold star' for the level I just completed can interfere with that (I can be a bit of a perfectionist sometimes :] ).
The storyline is pretty basic, but has a few loopholes, which adults and older children might pick up on, but the younger ones will have fun with the magic and talking cats. Unfortunately, the voices of the characters starts to get on my nerves after a while, especially the cat's.
All-in-all, a fun, easy-going (or a-little-harder-going if you wanna play the timed version), and child-friendly game that will keep you entertained and wanting to know what happens in the end, and what exactly McDuckus looks like ;)

Younger People Would Love This
It wasn't as challenging as I personally like, but I could see how younger people might get a better kick out of it than I did. I didn't like the separation of tools - some you just use and some you had to select to use. I didn't see the point in doing that. One thing I find very annoying is not being able to skip over "story lines" or written dialogue. I don't mean to sound so negative, this was a good and enjoyable game. Just not my personal style.

A Bit Confusing
normally i don't write a demo review but since this is a new game i'll give it a go. i reached level 8 or 9. it's similar to MKFP and ROR, etc.
clear roads, build huts, saw mills, farms, information centers, and bridges, defeat enemies, etc.
what i found confusing is the mechanics. some items go into inventory and when used you have to double click to make it work. other items go into your tent and need just one click to use.
certain characters can only do certain actions, ie: only the cat picks up food. bubbles appear above the action telling you what you need.
gold, wood, food and crystals are staples.
the goals are tabbed with the buildings to buy so you need to switch tabs to see your goals which i did not like!
the story moves along with different characters talking to you before and during each level. i'll let you find that out when you play the demo.
demolish buildings, upgrade huts, buy more workers. also, the different huts earn rent gold and have citizens in them. some levels require a certain number of citizens.
if the game mechanics were more uniform i'd give it a 4 star rating since it would be more fun instead of frustrating when i forget i need to double click!
perhaps i would get used to it if i bought the game and continued playing. i do have a free game coming to me but i'm really on the fence with this one.
please try the demo before you buy because you just might have the same trouble getting used to it.
