I'm Having a HEYDAY!
I love this game, great graphics and just the right amount of challenge. Finally a TM game with with a drag and click format, but plan your lot's carefully because larger building require larger lot's and if you buy a smaller building make sure it won't interfere with the placement of the next building. If you don't have enough room you will have to destroy existing buildings and rebuild them in another place which will cost time and money. I liked the assortment of tasks and the fact that your goal was to make the property more valuable by adding more luxury. If you are getting bored with the same old TM games, don't give up, give in and try this game!

Another fun game
Finished the demo and will buy. Good fun building game, while the king is off fighting a war the princess has to rebuild the town. Build houses and repopulate the town, commercial building for entertainment etc. You have to make sure that you build on the right plot of land or your building won't fit, caught me out a few times so demolished the building. Time is not really an issue so you can play for 3 gold stars or less or just complete the tasks required for the fun of playing. I like this game and no doubt will be more challenging as the game progesses.If you run out of land there are buildings that you don't own so you have to buy them to complete what is required. I personally like it and will buy but always best to try the game first and not rely on reviews as I have done in the past. So, give it a go and you decide. Happy playing and enjoy. :)

Not just another Build A Lot
This is a wonderful game of the Build A Lot / Be Rich type.
It begins simply enough but the challenges soon build up. The colours are bright and game definition is high. The buildings are beautifully drawn and quite distinct from one another, meaning you can't easily confuse them when you are hurrying.
Level 29 had me in a mind-spin for hours, but the grid system really helps to figure out how to progress. You really need to use your logical brain in the later levels.
The challenges start to mount up quite rapidly. What to buy and what to sell? Where is best to build? How to balance food with the need for luxury, and vice versa? And, bearing that in mind, how still to have enough residents to pass the level?
If you like a good puzzle (but not in the conventional HOG style) and like to use your brain to figure things out, I'd really recommend this game. It's a gem in this little acknowledged builder genre. 5 Stars all the way!

Makes you THINK!
I love TM & Builders & this one has me hooked. I have been playing it for 2 days now & have been stumped on a couple of levels. Not your usual "build & go" You really have to plan out a strategy especially on the higher levels. Graphics are great, though as other Fishies have said they are on the small scale. This one reminds me of an old game from years ago Romeopolis. Still one of my favorites that I replay every now & then. This one is a winner for me.

Very familiar, but very good.
This plays exactly like Green City 1 and 2 with the only difference being a historical time period and its trappings rather than a modern day one. Graphics are high quality as in GC 1 and 2, (all 3 games also cover the entire screen of my laptop, unlike many BF games...) There is the usual 3, 2, and 1 star ratings depending upon the time taken to complete levels - but it can also be played untimed. Overall, another outstanding city builder.

The Princess is a Builder!
This is a charming, low-key, building game different enough from other building games to grab your interest. You still build huts and cabins and taverns and luxury items to improve the value of your properties and your income. But it doesn't have that "hurry up" feeling that the Build-A-Lots have. While it still has a timer, I am not sure it matters. It has some achievements and you are also uncovering a map of the kingdom as you play.
A thoroughly satisfying and relaxing game!

A real strategy game
I loved this game, it really made me use my brain. In order to succeed you not only have to plan where to place things but what to build and what to sell or destroy. As targets are varied sometimes you need to keep all your building and sometimes you have to sell/demolish. I had to replay about half the levels to get gold which is very unusual for me. If you just like to build to see the silly characters running around this game is not for you but if you like a real puzzle I thoroughly recommend it.

An excellent, thought-provoking game. Requires use of the little grey cells. I finished the game with gold on all levels - but only after many hours of strategizing, replaying, forum tips and some old fashioned trial and error.
You will love this if you love a puzzle and are looking for something more challenging than a simple time management game.

WOW, About Time
I was skeptical but, purchased after trial period... You really have to think, but, you can spend 45 mins on one level, for you can change, and change and change, until you get what is needed...
I have all the time-management, but no home building, for they only let you do one thing. This is a combo of everything..

Fun TM Free Building Game!
This is an awesome game. You need to strategize and find the best way to solve each level. We can put the buildings anywhere they will fit. It adds another element into the mix. I thought the graphics were amazing, music was not my favorite, but didn't make me want to bash my head against the wall. All in all, I enjoyed the game immensely and purchased as soon as the trial was over. If you are a TM fan, you'll love this one!
