challenging time management and puzzle game
I love this game. It is fun and challenging. It is both a time management game and a puzzle/brain teaser game. You have to build quickly, but you also have to figure out which building to build in which order and location to fit in everything you need. That aspect of fitting everything in makes this more challenging and more fun for me than any other time management game I have ever played.

I'm still in the throes of working through this game, and I am here to tell you it is NOT easy. Not by a long shot. That said, it's also entirely possible to get gold on all levels, provided you're stubborn enough and are willing to take advice (Big Fish forum members and the amazing Sipason are knowledgeable: USE THAT!!!). SO impressed with Kingdom's Heyday!!!.

This is a really challenging building game. Right now I am stuck on level 11 but it's a lot of fun. The graphics are nice and it's a good challenge.

I like playing city simulators especially old ones like Sim City and Transport Tycoon

Very nice to see a free builder again
We've gotten so used to the usual fixed position builders that it's really a joy to see one where you can place buildings they way you want again, really missed it.
Nice graphics, sound was pleasant too. All in all a worthy city builder.

If you're into build-a-town type TM games...
You'll like this one!
Initially underwhelmed at the start of the demo: gameplay and graphics reminded me a lot of My Kingdom for the Princess, Royal Envoy and the like (some of my favourite TM games).
The graphics were nicely detailed but not as bright and cheery as the other TM favourites; not too mad on the colour shades, screen brightness is up to 11... It's quite straightforward to play and I thought it felt too much like the other TM build-a-town type games just "repackaged". Except there is more movement in the surrounding graphics all the way across the screen, with little people walking and horses & carriages constantly travelling the roads (virtually running over each other around corners if I look too closely).
Even so, I thought it was going to be boring, but then it started to get hard - you need to play quite strategically picking the right buildings/positions, especially if you are going for gold. (In fact I'm quite stumped on a couple of levels, can't get past silver, and have been waiting for someone to post tips; keen to get back now!). The grid showing you the spaces that can be built on helps.
Once I realised it wasn't going to be a walk in the park all the way through, my interest piqued :)) I should add tho', if you want an easy fun game to wind down with after a long day... don't pick this one!!

Challenging and fun
Good time-management and strategy game. Nice to have the free-form building aspect. Many of the levels took some time and several tries to figure out how to place the buildings to make the goals. I enjoyed the level of difficulty and length of the game. It also seems that even if the timer runs out you can still keep playing the level, which is appealing for the harder levels.
The story is cute, but it only progresses at the beginning/end of each set of 10 levels so the individual levels don't further the story at all and the setting is very similar for each level.

Get out the Magnifying Glass
This is a cute builder game, where you actually get to choose where to put your buildings (along the lines of the build a lot games). You need homes, production facilities, and nice things that raise the happiness of the town. This could have been good, however, I had man cons with the game. Everything is SMALL. The control bars where you choose what you need to to or how much materials you have are tiny. The houses are small. I found myself with my nose almost against the computer (ok maybe that's a bit of a stretch lol). It just wasn't a comfortable game for me. This is a pass.

This is a rather hard Game, harder than I expected it to be. It really needs an inbuilt Strategy Guide to help you along. I found it very frustrating as I got stuck on many levels and had to replay some of them more than once. In hindsight, I would probably NOT buy it again!
