I love these resource management games, and jumped on this as soon as I saw it. After playing the first 6 levels, I am very glad I got this with a credit and didn't actually pay for it! They have made it impossible to make gold, or even silver, on every level from the start. Apparently, you have to buy power-ups to be able to go back and replay the levels to get to gold. And you can't even get to the 'store' to buy said power ups until you finish the first episode - 11 levels? I don't mind having to replay a level to improve my time, but to waste all the time playing through them with no chance, just to get to the point where you can go back? No thank you! No chaining of tasks, can't see the goals, dialog hiding portions of the game and you are unable to clear them...Maybe with a total rework from the developers, this would be an enjoyable game. But as for now? Uninstalled!

Just a failure
This is a game which seeks to achieve mediocrity and fails even at that. There is no untimed mode, which is a failure. There are certain levels which cannot be finished at all, another failure. As a copycat game, this embodies the principles and failures of its predecessors and expands on the failures. Even the game controls fail to be clear about anything. To exit the game, the easiest way is to kill the program from task manager. I was able to finish the first level before I hit an impossible level and quit trying. It was just boring. I cannot recommend that anyone else waste money on this game. There are far better alternatives out there.

Plays fine for first hour, once you buy it and get on a bit further you run out of time to finish the part. I have tried to finish about 10 times, so to move on. But no chance. This game is a waste of money

Nope nope nope
Well, visuals and music are good, but the gameplay is just bad. The whole buying crystals system is a terrible idea and only works for freemium apps on iPads, NOT on a game I already bought for PC. Some levels are impossible to finish, even when using powerups. In order to get powerups you have to have crystals. In order to get crystals you have to play levels over and over again to get them. Zaps the fun right out of the game. Hopefully the devs update and change the game and I might change this review.

I thought this game was very good but I do find it hard to believe that developers are still in this day and age making games that do not have a relaxed mode, most of us who buy these games are people who have jobs and come home in the evening wanting to settle down after dinner with a nice relaxed game we are not 10 - 14 year old boys who crave the excitement of finishing a game in a set amount of time. I thought that developers knew this most of the games now have a timed and a relaxed mode sadly not this one though which is the reason I will not be buying this one as I am sure many others like me won't either :(

This game is really hard, buying powerups wth? Not to mention those annoying pop-up bubbles that appear in the middle of the gameplay, blocking your view and NOT pausing the timer. (they started to appear later after i purchased) After 2 hours of playing i got really mad and quit. I have played dozens of time management games and mastered them but this is nerve wracking and unenjoyable. Timer is too fast, workers are too slow and power ups run out too quickly. A must NOT buy unless u wanna tear your hair out.

I felt like I was alway waiting for something to finish in order to move on, truly a horrible game in my opinion.
In one word....CLUNKY!
