Katy and Bob: Way Back Home
I LIKED IT WHEN I STARTED THE GAME BUT
It got alittle confusing, too many things to keep up with....I don't recommend this game...

Not much to challenge
There's not one thing challenging about this TM game, the storyline is lame and there's way, way, too much CLICKING.....
The graphics are excellent in sharpness and color which would be the only reason that I took the time to rate it.

Katy and Bob
Katy and Bob are lazy kids whose dad wants them to learn some responsibility. They are sent to an island in which they have to work to earn money to get back home. The initial storyline sounded like it had fun possibilities, but for me, I played 12 minutes and got bored. Very similar to other TM games, but nothing new or inventive.

Turbo Subs/Pizza memories :)
I love TM games and was missing a good old fashioned TM. Katy and Bob was exactly what I was looking for. Nice visual quality, loads of upgrades to choose from, nice array of customers. Negative are the incoming monkeys, for they were there in the levels where the secondary challenges did not need them to be served. They were just a hindrance and the made the difficulty even in the 'easy' mode rather hard. Loved it, will recommend it to TM fans

I love TM games, but not this one.
This TM game was not that interesting. Strangely, you could very easily get goal, but expert took an extra try and I am not sure why as this is pretty easy to understand and play. I play mostly TM games and I wouldn't recommend this one.

A little too click happy for me
I love TM games, but the trend toward frantic clicking on very small targets is not my thing. I like the more planned and strategic stuff. This would probably be a winner for you if you liked the diner dash series though.

The story is fairly interesting, the game however is nothing special or new. Graphics are less than standard, the music irritating, but at least you can switch it off. There are a number of bugs in the game, but they may be fixed in due course. All in all, rather monotonous and I wish I hadn't used a credit up on it.

Easy Mode is not easy. TOO FRENZIED!!!
Just finished the demo. Going to think about purchashing, but the fact that the easy is not easy causes me to wonder if it's just going to be another Diner Dash I lose money on, because it gets so frustratingly frenzied. Modes state Easy and Normal ???
The game really looks like fun and I liked playing, except for the out of control speed, with which you have to keep up with. Like the upgrades, only got to play one 1 mini-game, it was okay. Very nice graphics and storyline. Come on developers, try also thinking about the senior citizens who play at a more relaxed mode.

The storyline is quite good: Rich dad's two young adult children think that 'son' and 'daughter' is an occupation. So he gets in touch with some organisation that will teach them that a 'career' is something completely different and under false pretences they get lured to a remote island. There they have to work to earn their tickets back home.
So far, so good, but the rest didn't really impress me. I found the gameplay quite awkward. You have to take orders from customers with varying levels of patience, order cocktails from the bar (they take a little time to make), fetch ice creams and cans of pop and I got as far as having to pick a fruit, put it into some juicer (both the juicer and the growing of the fruits take a little time) and light fireworks. The latter you can do once you have collected enough love hearts from happy customers, which you strangely have to pick off the floor. In fact these customers seem to throw everything on the floor: Money, your tips, the hearts...you name it, they don't seem to now how to leave things on their tables. The only good thing about that is that you don't have to click everything off the floor individually, you just have to move the mouse over it to pick it up.
You can buy the usual improvements for you cocktail bar with the money you're making and you can buy some antiques that are supposed to help you getting back home.
I found the gameplay extremely awkward and couldn't get any flow into it, which made it extremely hard to chain the actions. Not being able to pre-prepare any cocktails or other concoctions really didn't help.
A "No" from me, I'm afraid.

The game was fun to start off with but then got boring.
The graphics are ok.
The game, at times seemed to easy and at times seemed to hard. Reminded me game Turbo Subs
