Save The Prince
Instructions poor, characters would stop & wave for extended periods of time, given no indication on how to fix same. Numerous clicks required to achieve certain actions.

Warning game contains mild profanity!
This is based on the demo only. Saying that though as it is the 'clear roads', 'collect resources' type of game then you are either going to love or loathe. I normally love these types of games and have a large collection, this though I was in two minds with as whilst it does follow the same format as others in this genre, it for me didn't seem to 'flow' as well as the majority of others in this genre. Usually in these types of games even if you have the settings on 'time mode' the first first few levels are easily to complete with a top rating (stars, medals etc), but these were tight and made you think from about the second level, this was ok but it was a bit of steep learning curve.
What finally put the kybosh on the game for me though was the 'mild', though to me there was no need for it anyway was the profanity used in the opening dialogue on level five. It may have only seem mild to some, to others they may not regard it as profanity at all, to me I found it very unnecessary. What also annoyed me though was that this was a 'fantasy' style game which is aimed at children and passes as a family-friendly game where the story-line is easy to follow and the whole feel of the program is that of fantasy escapisam, then on level five there is this profanity. I mean the idea that a fantasy creature like a dwarf is going to start swearing no matter how mild, will spoil the a child or adult wanting escapism to be spoiled, by the writers putting in dialogue that was not in keeping with the overall effect of the game.
On the positive side, even though this was a SE the characters were talking and the graphics and soundtrack were good and in-keeping with the overall theme.
Normally I would recommend this type of game if you are a fan of the genre, this one though even without the profanity, I would still err on the side of caution, owing to the fact that I couldn't 'catch' the feel of the game, the death knell though came with the use of the profanity.
On this occasion I cannot recommend this game.

Slow at everything. Jerky movements. Have to click on items multiple times. Every conversation takes so much time. Game would be average if these issues were addressed. Very amateur job.

Save Your Money
I am so angry I spent money on this game. The storyline COULD have been cute and funny, turning the whole "save the princess" theme on its head. Instead it is full of sexist tropes and clumsy voice-overs, making it painful to read and even worse to listen to. The heroine is still a stupid daydreamer with no sense or proportion or reality who has to be saved herself. Repeatedly. Ugh.
The gameplay is clumsy and slow, and often the workers just STOP WORKING, with no explanation why or any way to get them to go back to work. YAY!

Looked like it would have been fun to play, but could not see the picture.
This game is awful as far as the picture, I could not see the whole picture, it had lines all thru it. Maybe just could be my computer, but I never have any problems with any other games off of Big Fish. What is wrong with this one? I would have loved to play this game, it looked like it would have been fun. If any one else had this problem, please let me know what I can do. Thank you.
