Moai: Build Your Dream
Everything about this game is wonderful. It has strategy, time management, and builder elements all rolled into one. The graphics are fantastic and the sounds are great. I turned off the music as it was kind of repetitive. The only flaw here is that it is quite a challenge to get a perfect rating on all of the levels, but some people appreciate that. The gameplay flows very smoothly, as you only need to hover your cursor over resources to collect them, which is a nice feature. If you enjoy TMGs or builder games, you'll be sure to love this one. This is a long game with lots of extra features, so it's definitely worth a purchase.

Brilliant Strategy Game
I've never been moved to write a game review before but I enjoyed this game so much I feel compelled to!
Totally agree with other reviewers re: excellent quality graphics etc.
I catergorise this game specifically as a 'Strategy Game' as opposed to a straightforward Time Management game.
To complete many of the levels you have to work out very carefully how you need to complete the task - and this adds an extra level of difficulty and challenge - frustrating at times, but ultimately very satisfactory when you succeed!
For this reason it is difficult to complete most levels on first attempt until you have played the whole game through a couple of times - and even then it can be hard!
The 'Achievements' board adds a further element of challenging fun. 'Complete 25 levels without killing a ghost with your own hand' being particularly tricky - as it's so tempting to zap the rascals and also easy to do by accident!!!
I like the way The Achievement Board re-sets each time you set up a New Player. #this isn't alsways the case with some games#
My favourite games to date have been Roads of Rome , Westward #the first 2#, Island Realms and Special Envoy - so if you've liked these you are sure to LOVE this one.
Happy Gaming :-)

A fun game for all ages!
Although this is your typical TM game, it has just enough differences to make this a stand out game. First of all it has a good storyline about an adventurous man who sets sail on a hot air balloon that crashes into an island where the Moai live. They believe he is the hero they have been waiting for to save their island and their people from self destruction. They have used up most of their resources especially wood from the dwindling trees. The graphics are superior even though it is cartoonish. you will have a task list that is easy to read and it includes such things as building 4 fields for food and collect 100 pieces of wood, and there is a timer. When you click on an available action such as an empty lot, a circle will appear with a few different options such as food or stone so everything is easier to accomplish rather than clicking on several options spread all over the board. After each level completed you earn stars that will carve the stone around an idol that when completed will allow you to unlock more areas. A really fun game so start building and enjoy!

cute and a lot going
Gather resources, built huts,fields, fight of ghosts all with cute scenery and graphics. Not a new concept but nice for those that like TMG. Music is not too bad. Right size and the storyline keeps it interesting. Bought it and recommend it.

A superbly created time management game!
I am hopeless at time management games, and it took me quite a while to appreciate them. I have some of the best ones now, but I am still hopeless at them. Having said that, I do know a great one when I play it, and this is quite simply one of the better ones. Graphics are A+, story is A+, and for me, a hopeless TM player, the fun factor is A+. The challenge aspect is excellent, and after leaning what is required, striving for gold is an enjoyable challenge. Give it a go.

One of the better time management games out there!
I was hooked from the beginning. Cute story, good challenges. Played it three times in a row, it was that much fun. Really enjoyed this one. Definitely one of the better time management games with just enough difficulty to keep you going.

Moai great dreams!
Moai was great fun, at first the ghosts may of been a pain, but I just keep playing it over and over again until i figured it out and with the help of those in the forum I was able to finish it all in Gold!
Please make more games like this, love the story line behind this game as well, graphics were great!
