Ballad of Solar
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!!!

New twist on TM games
Finally - a TM game that is more than just gathering and building. Shoot - I'd give it 4 stars just for that.
But the developers obviously took some time on this game. The graphics are fresh, the storyline is decent, the text is grammatically correct and so far I have run into no spelling errors. Picky? Maybe, but if you want my money then you should at least spend enough time making sure you've spelled things correctly and your sentences actually make some sense.
This is also a great game to introduce kids to RPG's and TM's at the same time. The villains - for the most part - are dispatched in a non violent manner. Most of the "quests" require solutions other than bashing something with a sword, and the gameplay is simple enough for even a younger kid to figure out.
To win all the stars will require some thought and strategy, especially on the challenge difficulty.
It's funny without cracking worn out jokes or walking the line of being offensive to one group or another. The audio is well done - not obtrusive. The voices are also well done, no guttural shouts, dialog is clear and understandable (except for spells and that's ok).
It's not super challenging, but it does take effort to get the best time. All in all a well polished game and a nice entry into the TM arena, an area too long dominated by the same old same old Frenzy or Dash genres. I look forward to more games from this devel team.

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!

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.

Review of Completed Game...
I really really enjoyed this game. I had planned on giving it 5 stars in fact until it ended on level 30! I have never played a builder game this short so even though I absolutely loved it, I felt like I got a little short changed.
The concept of this game is to build different things in order to save your princess but it has different game mechanics than other games. I really liked how each level was either 2 or 3 parts earning a star for each and 1 or 2 of those parts was always timed and one was untimed on adventure mode. There is a hardcore mode where they are all timed but I didn't play that one. Anyways, the untimed levels really gave you time to think and figure out what to do in the timed ones. And he would pack up their tent each time and walk into the next level and usually it would be almost like the other room you just did but with a twist. I really liked this aspect of some timed and some not.
This also has voiceovers and nice graphics. The story line is the same ol save the princess but you do have to do a lot of new things to get there.. Make potions, blow things up, talk to people and get helpers. I always felt like all the levels were quite doable although there were a few I had to do over. That was my pet peeve though because if you didn't do the timed ones in time, you got to move on BUT when doing them again, you had to do all the untimed parts as well. It would have been nice just to do the timed however it did make the game longer.
IF this game had about 20 more levels. An even 50 or at least some more places to go and things to do, it would have been 5 stars for me. However, I felt like I came to an abrupt halt and I yearned for more. I didn't feel done and thats too bad because I really enjoyed myself. 4 stars for the uniqueness and the fun I had but have to take a star off for length.
I loved that you had a lot of help along the way. You have a giant named Yord who reminds me of my dummy brown lab. Its just the way I picture him talking haha and there is a wizard and men who help along the way. Very interactive and while they are talking, you can do the tasks which is nice.
I do recommend this however because a game as fun as this one, cannot be passed up. Just use a punch card coupon or wait for the daily deal!
