The great inventor Archimedes presents his newest and most advanced invention: a large winch powered by the wind. Even Hercules is no match for this mechanism! However, it’s no match against nature as a strong gust of wind destroys the device, which in turn, destroys the entire city of Syracuse.

Archimedes: Eureka! Collector's Edition is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best one in a long time 100 levels of increasing difficulty in a good pace. Many have to be replayed to achieve 2, let alone 3 stars. It's been a long time since I've done little else but try to beat level after level this way. Good, easy gameplay, lovely graphics. Good old fashioned, non 3-D TM game. Awesome. Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from you have to get used to it In the beginning it seems to be boring and much to easy - but one level after the other it will be more harder and more interessting! Nice Game and a little bit different then usual

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too challenging with a poor strategy guide This game has lots of levels and appears good value for money however I am unable to finish most levels within the gold time. I referred to the strategy guide and find it confusing even if I have tried the level several times so I am familiar with the layout of the level. In addition I tried to look for tips in the forum and I find there isn't a forum for this game so no help available there. I mostly like the game apart from having to collect all goods and income or it disappears which is very annoying on the more complex levels. I always buy this sort of TM game and am usually able to get gold with some effort but this is just way too hard.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from You take what you can get... Because TM games are so few and far between, I tend to buy any that turn up. That said, I did in fact download the trial with this one...and was grinding my teeth with frustration before the end of four levels. Having now played many more after buying the game, I can honestly say they only get harder! I concur with other reviewers who say this game doesn't grab you: it doesn't, but it's enough of a challenge to keep me engaged none the less. There isn't much of a plot/story-line, but never mind, it's a TM game, and in a desert where TM games are like oasis, it's a welcome sight! It is rather as if several TM game devs got together in a room, got waaay too friendly, and gave birth to this game, because there are recognisable elements from a number of different games. I have found a couple of glitchy levels where the mouse "floats", which is a pain because you have to be fast to get those three stars. On the whole: It'll do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good TM game This is very like the Hercules series. I like it very much. Some of the criticisms in other reviews are valid. Like the waiting for the money to build. I found that true but only on the first couple of levels. Otherwise you are kept quite busy. Also, the click a second time on things is a bit distracting, because you think you have sent the guy off to do something only to find that it didn't 'take'. Have to do it again. This game suits me, I am enjoying it. There is enough challenge that I have to replay some of the levels to get gold. Yet not so hard that you never get gold on the first try, but then I am an experienced TM player. A definite buy for me. Don't know if it is worth it for the CE. Wallpapers are not my thing. Don't care about them. Sometimes I really like having a guide available.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from takes planning and thought This is based on the trial. I had to think about resources all the time and play even the first levels sometimes more than once and refer to the strategy guide to get three stars. The strategy guide was helpful. As some reviews have mentioned you do have to wait while money is made but I found myself pretty busy doing other tasks while that was happening. I am not ready to buy yet but as a TM strategy game it did keep me thinking and engrossed enough to consider it. I found this challenging in strategy so would recommend it if you like to plan,

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Poor man's Royal Envoy Based on only having played the trial. It is a "gather resources" "build, buy and upgrade" "hire workers" game. It is also quite challenging so I guess that's why it is classified "strategy" and not "time management" I had to repeat a few levels even at the start, but I was getting used to "the cost of things" It is quite fast paced to get gold. It does however feel like a bit of a fruit salad of many games gone before, particularly 'Royal Envoy' re the goals and gameplay,"chop wood, gather 350 food, build 5 upgraded houses, have 9 workers" etc . But compared to that game, it is a bit cold and a bit lacking in character. The graphics are quite cute in themselves, I guess in an attempt to give it some warmth. It seem to have all the bells and whistles, strategy guide, wallpapers and achievements, and hopefully it will have bonus levels too. I think it is a game worthy of being called CE, but it just didn't grab me enough to not wait for a sale. I can only give it 4 stars which is a shame when all it needed extra perhaps was more player connectedness to the characters. I do enjoy the level of challenge. I recommend this game. Its a good cross of strategy and TM.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Typical strategy game but nothing special The game is okay but not a fan of the audio confirming accomplishments ("objective achieved").

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent The gameplay works as it should. The storyline is kind of boring, not as cute or exciting as some of the others. My biggest complaint would be the lack of explanation on what everything is and how to do certain things (like that the shovel icon meant you could upgrade a house...or even what upgrading it meant for this particular game). All in all, a good time-waster, but not as fun as some of the collector type games.
