I've Got The Fever!
I will admit that there are more interesting themes of TM games out there but apples for apples, if you enjoy the house decorating genre, then this is an entertaining game. The goal of this game is to redecorate houses and use the recovered resources and decorations to restore a mansion. The game actually revolves around a reality TV show but it isn't really relative to the gameplay. You must finish the list of tasks given for each level for example you might have to clear 7 piles of debris in order to get to the sites that are available to construct the buildings that produce the resources of which you need a specific amount. There is a good tutorial in the beginning that will take you step by step so no worries if you aren't familiar with the time management games, enjoy!

Happy, Happy, Happy!
If you like the Timebuilders series, you'll like Deco Fever. Yeah, the story is a bit silly; but, hey, I like silly! It does take some strategy to get gold (and a little help from the eggs!).
When I first looked at the game & video, I wasn't even gonna try it; but then I checked the forum. CheerfulDragon8's post lists the similarities with Timebuilders, so I had to try it. Glad I did because I love the game.
I would definitely recommend this game!

Fun Time Management Game!
Nice graphics, fun missions, great concept and the game is just the right degree of challenging. If you enjoy time management and strategy you'll get your money's worth!

Give it a chance! If you liked "Timebuilders", you'll like this!
When I first tried this game, I thought the graphics pretty archaic and wasn't that entranced with it - it seemed a pretty simple "Roads and Running" type of game - and then I realized it was actually rather well thought out, strategy wise. In fact, the longer I played it, the more familiar it got, until I realized it is almost a duplicate of the "Timebuilders" series - the forklift is the elephant, the "decos" are the huts, the bazaars are the markets, the cleaners are the bandits, etc. As I loved the Timebuilders I really started to enjoy this. As you get farther into it, it gets more challenging.
I think people are put off by the simple graphics, thinking of it as a more childish game than it is. Give it a try! If you like Timebuilders, MKFTP, or any of the Roads and Running games, it stands up pretty well.

Had a good time... Good going, guys!!!

I read the reviews and have to agree, that it's a low level game, but most time management games don't have to be spectacular to be good. This one is very fast paced, and I had to replay several of the levels to get top score, so it held my interest. Lots of quick building, sending workers to collect and build. And then they throw things to gunk up the works, like having to build a wine cabinet, then the maids are in the way. I liked the super microwave ovens where you get gobs of materials or decorating supplies to pay off the maids. Good play value, a lot of fun. So very fast paced. I didn't like Save the Prince when I first played or Gardens Inc, but they grow on you. StP has a really funny story line, so so game play, but it's lively enough to be a good TM game. G,i was super fun, and sort of campy, but they are TM games that really develop. I'm hoping this one does. I love almost all TM games and though this is not a favorite, it's a good way to pass the time.

It not Bad
This is not a super great game. But it does not mean it not a good game. It just average not above Average. I never played Timebuilders. It flaw is it does not really allow you to decorate.It pre Detriment. It should be advertised honestly not deceptively. But I knew this before buying this game. So I
knew what I was getting myself into. But I do love this game
despite some of the flaws. If a second one comes out it could be improved. It what you are able to overlook and forgive. I played better but I have played much worse. I feel there are worse games out then this.

Repetitive and Limited
This game didn't hold my attention for even the hour-trial as a mindless distraction. The action was repetitive and the player is given no choice in decorations, upgrades, etcetera.

a bit dull
this review is based on the trial. The game was similar in gameplay to the Timebuilder games. I didnt think very much of the graphics and found the gameplay a little boring. I uninstalled after about 20 minutes of playing.

Waste of time
I lasted 12 minutes before I had enough of this. There are no choices to be made, no personal spin on the decorations... The concept has potential, but it was not reached in this game.
