Great strategy game with nice design
I like this kind of strategy game very much, because it is nicely designed, has a good difficulty level and an attractive story. I am already looking forward to tany tales III soon.

Hours of Fun, great theme continues
Both my son and I adore this series. We played the first one and were excited to see a new one out. I have completed the game and found it fun throughout.

A "Charming" Tale
There are already some excellent reviews on this game, but after seeing some of the negative ones I felt I had to write one in defense of it. I have played through TTT1 & 2 and found both of them to be charming, challenging, and addictive. I kept wanting to better my times and try to beat the developer's time, as well. I thought the story lines were nicely developed, not extensive, but, then again, I am not here to read a novel. I loved the character's voices and their little banter back and forth. I don't know what the problem was that the other people had with these games, but I was able to beat each level and get the pink flower on TTT2 and on TTT1 almost every level.

More fun than I expected
I normally avoid this type of game but, having nothing better to do and being a bit bogged down with Nancy Drew, decided something lighter was in order.
OK, it's a bit repetitive (especially the music and sounds) but after a while I got into the knack of it, keeping my little gremlins running and topping up my supplies.
I really quite enjoyed it in the end.
If you have not tried one of this type of game before, give it a go. It makes a welcome change. If you regularly play these then you might find the story line an enjoyable change and can certainly rise to the time challenge (it doesn't matter if you don't 'beat the clock' as you can carry on playing the level which is good).
Something for everyone here and suitable for all the family.

I loved the first in this series and still play it through every month or two. I was excited to see a sequel. I think the characters are adorable and the gameplay is fun. The story was better in the first one and I missed the levels where you only control one gremlin. Also, I got 3 stars on every level with this one, where I struggled with some levels in the first. I preferred the challenge and found this game a bit easy in comparison. Also this game hiccupped frequently (freezing for a split second) and that was annoying. I bought the game, enjoyed playing it and will play it again, but it pales in comparison to the first.

I Liked This Almost Immediately
While I do agree with the reviewers who say they want to cancel their memberships, & I am going to do so this month, from what I've seen so far The Tiny Tale 2 is great.
I really like the sounds/voiceovers & the whole thing in general.
I'm just glad whenever I can find a half decent game anymore and I wanted to add my 2 cents since I'm not finding the music or characters unlikable. I hear that there's a technical glitch that comes up & I hope it doesn't affect me...! But shoot, I think any of us who are nauseated by the HOGs should support games like this.

Fun Characters and Story
I'll start by admitting I do not generally like these games. The first of these sorts was amusing, but I've found everything after just to be repetitive and boring.
But I adore the animation, characters and storyline of this particular game well enough to have purchased it. It's cute, well-paced, and more well-rounded in my opinion than other games of similar sorts. This is one I'd recommend to others that are disenchanted with these games.

A tiny review!
This is the usual ?clear the road? TM game, but it does have its quirks. As well as the normal ?clear the road? objects, there is also a ?magical? element to the game. Other TM?s have done this and this is done in my opinion, very successfully, the spells are for the usual power-ups in this genre such as ?re-growing? the trees, or working faster etc, but with having to purchase the ?magic? first then this brings an additional strategic element to the overall game-play. I enjoyed this side of the game-play as it whilst the basic premise of ?clear the road? was the same this as I say added.
The graphics, sound and workers ?comments? were of the same ilk as other TM games, but this is not to say a negative but just on par with others of the ilk.
I enjoyed this game and would certainly recommend to others who enjoy this style of game-play, but want something a bit different, not only with the magic element, but the actual level challenges are slightly different as well, thus adding further ?fun? into the pot. From early on in the game, you have to think very strategically in order to be able to complete the levels, this is both frustrating and fun in equal measures.
I would defiantly recommend this game.

Fun game full of whimsy
You're going to either love or hate these over-the-top characters. The gremlins make funny noises (reminded me of the aliens in Mars Attacks!) and the sorcerer guy says completely ridiculous things as he casts his spells and fights bad guys. I found it amusing, but could see why others found it intolerable.
It's different from other TM games in that you're not rebuilding a kingdom, which is a nice change. I also liked that getting the level done in time meant that I could modify my characters and have them look different in the game.
A few flaws kept the game from being 5-star worthy:
The storyline is boring and takes WAY too long to set up in the beginning.
The graphics aren't great.
Once you figure out a few strategies, the game loses it's challenge. Then you're just left with trying to beat the developers time. (a nice option, but not my cup of tea.)
