Different & challenging
This game will appeal to those who love an exciting challenge AND those who prefer a relaxing game. Each level comes with specific tasks that must be completed to move to the next island. Tasks might include building certain types of houses, buildings, overcome road blocks, etc. The first time through each level I mainly got the lay of the land. You can take as long as you like to complete the tasks but the real challenge is doing the level fast enough to earn gold level status. To earn gold, you have to develop a strategy for completing the tasks in just the right order. Do you need to buy workers first or build a market or pay off the pirate? Each level requires a different mix of materials, workers, and gold. Developing a strategy for each level is key and achieving gold is no easy feat. The graphics and chatter of the characters are delightful and the music is upbeat without being annoying. You definitely get your money's worth with Royal Envoy. If you enjoy the demo, you'll love the full version!

This is a well-made TM game with impressive graphics. The game play is less clicky than Roads of Rome style road-builders and requires more logical thinking. I played through each level until I got that pesky star, although I admit by the time I "unlocked" expert mode I was done with the game!

Cute and challenging. I like the fact that even after "time" runs out you can play on until you finish the level. Not true with Royal Envoy 2, which I played the trial and failed to get past level 6 or 7 and could no longer play the game.
Clearing paths and repairing, upgrading and building several different types of buildings is great fun. Highly recommended for TM fans or just pure fun!

This is the best!
This was the first time management game I played and I still think it's the best.

Enjoyed everthing about this game especially that if time runs out you are not punished (well, not by much). The levels can be challenging expecially if your goal is to achieve three stars for each challenge. Although I never did get three stars for all the challenges, I still had a load of fun.
