Beautiful and Fun!
Wow! This game took me by surprise. It was pure chance I found it, but now I'm hooked.
The graphics are outstanding. The colors are spot on, and the dynamic nature of the scenes adds so much. I'd use some of them as wallpaper on my computer, they are so beautiful. The game is fun, but also relaxing. At the end of a busy day it's a great way to wind down without being a couch potato!

Takes a bit of time to work out the best way to play
Yes it does seem a bit repetitive sometimes. I played the full hour of the demo before reading any reviews, then wished I had read the first one (by Ratatouille). This explains the game very well - I think the reason I got a bit dissatisfied was because I was just collecting resources more or less randomly without checking which ones I needed most. Didn't buy it straight away as I've already got several games which I haven't played all the way through, but I'm sure I'll buy it sometime if only for the artwork. It truly is in a class of it's own - so lifelike and delicately animated.

Stragegy with a Hidden Object Twist
I love this game and have played it over and over and over! You use hidden object scenes to put your stragegy into work to improve a culture.

addictive, great scenes, progressive
if you like to see blue herons fly by, this is for you. I've completed this game probably 30 times. Fun to fall back on to blank your mind.

Incredibly Fun Hidden Object Game
Bought this game when 5 star games were $5.00. One of the best $5 I've ever spent. Can be played over and over.

HO with a Twist
City-building, tech research, hidden objects. This one took me by surprise.
Need more food for the next tier of research? Go to the HO scene and pick them up. Want to upgrade a building? Go to another HO scene and get the necessary materials.

Not a Building Game, Just Collecting the Same Things Over and Over
Hard to believe some of these rave reviews. This game consists of nothing more than going to the same few place and clicking on the same types of items over and over again.
There is no strategy involved, you don't even have the fun of placing buildings or even building them, really. The game just keeps telling you how much of a certain resource you need for the next building, you go click on the resources, and the game does the rest.
"Colossal" waste of time.
