World of Zellians
Ambushed by the Awesomeness!
I have always been a fan of kingdom building games - Pharaoh, Zeus, and Emperor were awesome. That type of game is difficult to come by, however, so I was especially pleased to find World of Zellians. Unlike the kingdom builders I was familiar with, however, the challenge of Zellians comes from being able to fit everything in, given terrain constraints and the shape of the buildings.
Now that I've finished it, all I can say is I love this game! The storyline is cute, and had a twist in it that I didn't expect. Game play is simple to learn (but challenging to master, of course). The game provides all the information you need to accomplish your goals, so if you forget building requirements or have a problem, the game will give you that info in a non-patronizing fashion. The graphics are adorable. I found the sounds to be so helpful that game play was difficult for me with them off. The music wasn't so good that I'd listen to it casually, but I didn't hate it, either.
Some levels were a real challenge, but many of the levels I would have like to be just a little bit tougher (but just a little!). Because there's no clock, you can take as long as you want to solve the puzzle of how to fit everything together.
I would absolutely love to see a sequel to this game.

Very Fun Not Boring at All
this was a different kind of building game than I have played before. Instead of being told where to build something you have to figure out where it fits and put it there and after that you have to build what that first building needs. Its really fun. The only complaint that I have is you have to move the screen around to see it all but even with that I highly recommend this game to those that have time to waste and want a fun way to waste it.....well isnt wasting time what we all do while playing games LOL

One of the best builder games!
I am always coming back to this game as my favourite time building game. What really sets it apart from other building games is the puzzle element. Getting your cities laid out right is critical and the free placement makes it really fun and innovative. On the last few levels I have gone back to find out if there are any other solutions than the layout I managed to complete.

I bought this way back in 2009 and recently played it again, reminding myself just how good it is. There is no running around like a demented chicken trying to gather resources and beat the clock. You actually have to use your brain with this one and build wisely and well. I loved the teacher who kept popping up in indignation at the success of his pupil (you!) and trying to stymy progress. Just loads and loads of fun. Wish I had replayed it sooner than this!

Played and Replayed Many Times
I loved this game. As a strategy game freak (think Roads of Rome junkie...) I have played this game multiple times. While just challenging enough, it is hours worth of fun!
The premise... you must help different "colorful" rulers build up their villages. You need to plan ahead and fit structures in logically but there is much freedom in your building placement. As you progress through the levels, it gets increasingly difficult.

This is the type of game that I wish BF had many more of. The key is to build your kingdom within as small a space possible, and you have all the time you need. Most of the building and planning games too frantic - this is a true strategy/builder with great graphics and relaxing atmosphere.

This game has provided me with hours of fun, over and over again. Can't wait for another game of this nature, although it has been a long time since this one came out. Again i loved it.

Favorite building game
I love this game! There's a great progression of difficulty in challenges but still lots of flexibility built in so that you could go back and play again and again. Fun story line and characters, clean graphics and user friendly. Can't wait for World of Zellians 2!

Love this game
It's so nice you don't have to follow too many rules. You can put buildings where you want to, and you don't have to click a building to collect money. I truly love this game! The music is good, the graphics are amazing and the storyline is funny. I hope there are more games following!
