Times of Vikings
Cute game, bad interface
I adore this kind of time management games and was excited to see yet another version, although Vikings already has been done a couple of times now.
Unfortunately my excitement died down after realising that stacking of tasks is not possible. I can live with that if the rest of the game play is fun though, so I kept on playing, hoping for some other excitement.
Generally for these games there are two ways of collecting rent and material etc. Either it is created automatically and you need to click or hover over to get it, or you have characters that work as collectors. This game however has a merged version of these two, which means that you first click on a house to send the tax collector there, THEN you need to click on the money pile when it appears after a while. For me this is just stupid and annoying.
I had no issues finishing in time on the levels I tried, but I had no desire to carry on playing and left the game after a short while. I did not see anything out of the box in this game and the collecting part just got me angry. There are so many better TM games out there.

IMAGES TOO SMALL
IMAGES WAY TOO SMALL. EXACT CLICKING NEEDED- ONCE ON SUPPLY BUILDINGS AND THEN AGAIN SECONDS LATER TO PICK IT UP. NOT VERY FLUID FOR A TIME MANAGEMENT GAME.

Times of Vikings no fun
Frist of all it have a timed on it. To much click, have to click two or more time on one item . you can try it for yourself. but it is a no go for me

I would love to see some good games that are not HOS please! This game is not for adults that is for sure, very basic.

Times of Vikings is Annoying
I usually like Roads of Rome 1-2-3, Diner Dashes, and fast-paced games. This wasn't one of them. It would be fine for someone probably 12 and under I guess.

Can't stand the sound effects
The game is not very well thought out, having to activate the dwellings to get gold then having to click on the gold is silly. The sound effects when the workers are activated are extremely annoying and for that alone I deleted the game before finishing the free trial.

Can't stack tasks
I love strategy games like this...but I refuse to play ones where you can't stack tasks and have to wait for one task at a time to complete before you can do another. Dud.

A big no for me
Normally I love games like this. I really looked forward to playing, until I got to the 3rd or 4th level & couldn't find the fire place. No instructions/clues & by the time I finished clicking everywhere I could think of & finally finding it, the timer was up.
It would have been a much better game had the dev let us have a relaxed mode, stack orders & gave a bit better instructions. I've played a ton of these games & for me not to be able to find something so simple is just unacceptable.
Good try, but go back to the drawing board & tweak it a bit more.
This is a no buy for me.

Tight time constraints ruined the game
Following on the heels of many recent Viking games, this copycat gets it all wrong. In this game the time constraints are quite tight. You will often fail at levels one or two times before you barely finish. That kills any fun. This game is far more work than fun and it pushes the idea that fast is good, doing something the right way is bad. I can?t agree less. Skip this one. Don?t waste your money like I did. I may finish it someday, but right now I am too bored to play multiple levels in a day.

Was hoping this was like the other Viking Games. A pain to have to click to get rent/product and then to have to mouse over for retrieval! Boring - relieved when trial ran out! On my "do not purchase list".
