This game had enough challenge to have me playing levels a few time over but with different challenges available (From attacking trolls to houses getting dirty after tenets) it never grew dull! The graphics were very good and the dialogue wasn't too long but told you exactly what was required. By far my favorite time management game!

Not sure why, but not feeling it for this time management game
Time management with a cartoon-like freeze frame story progression.
Make your way around rebuilding and protecting houses from the elements or magical interference and make dosh to buy and build more houses and hire dwarves to help you.
Each level is a single screen to build in, so no extensive building out and scrolling is required. You can chose between a relaxed or a timed version of the game. And nice enough cartoon-like freeze scenes with script are used for the story telling. I found the humour a bit lame and the storyline rather weak and unengaging.
I think with the other positive reviews this is probably more appealing to people who are more into the game-type and the strategy of it, rather than the story-line. For me without a reason to be doing something and a strong storyline, I stop caring. And actually stopped half way through this game.
My preference is something with a more sense of scale and variety. For me, this game just feels cramped and limited, with only a limited amount of actions you can perform and limited reasons for doing things. I just felt I was doing the same things over and over with no exciting reward.
As a relative newbie to time management games, this one is just not doing it for me. The only other 'build things in one screen' games I can compare against are is My Kingdom for the Princess, which I would rate for game play well above this one.
it's not a bad game. It's just not for me. So if you are story line oriented you'll maybe struggle with this a little. If you are much more strategy focused, then this will probably fit the bill nicely.

A very good strategy game
A very good game with pleasant music and good graphics. Cute characters and quite interesting tasks. A very good strategy game. although not difficult enough for me.

Here you have a not-so-standard building game that includes repairs, exorcisms, and troll control! Nice little story line, great graphics and sound effects. A winner.
