Northern Tale 4 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 70.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from One for others to copy This is a time management game that I wish other developers would learn from. It really is just that good. The graphics are detailed, crisp, and clever. The music is pleasant enough to listen to on it's own and it enhances the game. Atmospheric sounds fit the theme and are well done. Gameplay consists of having your worker collect various resources and then use those resources to build structures that collect more resources or provide a special worker type needed to fulfill tasks. You can queue tasks for the workers which is a sort of double edged sword...you have to think about what you're doing. There are power ups which also need to be used strategically. Each level is like a puzzle that has several solutions but no matter which solution you pursue you're going to have to think it out a little. I wanted to get three stars for each level on timed mode and this often required at least a couple tries on some of the levels. This game is challenging but it isn't challenging because it's a click-fest. It's a well designed time management puzzle that's definitely worth playing to the end. I'm hoping there will be a Northern Tale 5 because I really enjoyed this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of the Series! I absolutely love this series, and I truly think this is the best of all. They just continue to surprise! I like this the best because it's HARD. The hardest, by far. You really have to think. It's so challenging. So, lots and lots and lots of challenging game play! At the same time, they have added some fantastic new graphics, while keeping the same format. The underwater scenes are fabulous! Well done! Five Full Stars!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best in the series so far, just pure bliss! I am totally hooked and biased on that kind of time management games, this sequel is just brilliant! Finished it today, I loved the introduction of underwater scenes, the graphics are just delightful, bright, cheerful, crisp and endearing. The action pace is just perfect some levels are very easy , some are outrageously challenging...loved that! You just have yo try again and again until you achieve the perfect combo of workers vs resources to achieve the goals. I enjoyed the presence of "secret achievements". Definitely in my top 4 Time Management games on BF along with Adelantado (the full trilogy), Royal envoy (all of them) , and Garden Inc (both of them). I warmly recommend Northern Tale 4 if you are intermediate or expert in time management skills because to enjoy the full experience it is much better to play it with a timer :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TO ME THE BEST OF THE FOUR!! This is so fun and not even done with it yet. Definitely different than the others with the scenes; some levels almost fairy/fantasy and other levels underwater which I just love. Poor Ragnar is getting up there but still going strong. This is done a bit different at the beginning so pay attention to the hints (and for fun click on the starfish).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO BEAUTIFUL ! AN ABSOLUTE JOY ! THANKYOU Was excited to see these guys back -but WOW I wasn't expecting to be blown away. MOST OF THE LITTLE ANIMALS REACT WHEN YOU CLICK ON THEM ! Even the tiny little crabs clap you at the end. The starfish squiggle. Cows moo, Love the smoke coming out of the chimneys, the little lights are on. Love Gillman (genius idea) riding on his sting ray. The little bunnies, hedgehogs, penguins and frogs. The bubbles, they are even streaming from the back of moving characters. Loved the amazing colours of the trees, coral and weeds. The little anchor chains. OH and the catfish just GORGEOUS and the giant octopus- I could go on and on. It is such a classy game. Such a lot of thought, effort and care put into it. Oh and thank you for liking dragons. I like dragons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Head north for great TM fun! I am a very big fan of this series. I have all three of the prior releases as well as the Viking Saga series as well and I love them all. This latest release is really along the same lines as the prior Northern Tales. You have the option of playing 'timed', 'multi-click' (queuing) as well as 'untimed' which really makes it good for everyone. The backgrounds are different and I find them very impressive. You have some old enemies (evil rock etc) as well as some new ones (scarecrow). There is an achievement system and a new feature added - items to collect hidden in certain levels. You have to collect enough stars to unlock the item (which will tell you what level it is located in). There isn't any MAJOR difference in this latest release aside from what I have mentioned. I do have to agree with previous viewers about the length of time it takes to load each level. I have a top-notch gaming PC and even I was a bit perturbed by the waiting for such a simple game. But that's my only real complaint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great Northern Tale! Let me start by saying that I love the Northern Tale games. I replay the first three of them over and over again. In fact, I was replaying Northern Tale 3 (for the third time) when I saw that Northern Tale 4 was released. The game play is similar, with relaxed, normal, and multiclick modes.The visual quality is great, with new underwater settings for some levels. You can tell that they spent time developing the story line as well. But what I most like is how challenging it is. By the time I played Northern Tale 3, getting three stars on a level was coming quite easily to me. But on this game, getting three stars is quite a challenge, especially on some levels. A fun, challenging game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This series continues to improve This series and Viking Saga were my introduction to this type of game, and I enjoy them both. This game has absolutely raised the bar as far as graphics are concerned. In particular, the underwater episodes are gorgeous. Love the schools of fish moving around the "polyps" I recommend starting in untimed mode just to savor the visuals. Another subtle thing about this series is the interactivity of lots of the background people and creatures. Click a moose and it shakes it's head, people jump as if surprised or turn and wave, ducks flap their wings. I won't say what the starfish with eyes do, but it's hilarious, especially with the sound on. I cannot speak to the challenge of the game in timed mode as I seldom play these timed, but even untimed you will benefit from planning your approach to the challenges. My one #minor# quibble with this and the latest Viking Saga is some of the text was perhaps note proofed into English as well as it might have been. This does not cause any problems understanding what needs to be done. I don't review a lot, but had to plug this one. Couldn't be more pleased. Bought it immediately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Northern Tales 4 An Exceptional Time Management Game Northern Tale is an exciting time management game that is so addictive, fun and quick paced. So much to do, finding food, chopping wood, upgrading buildings, banishing evil and recusing some interesting characters. I wish I had half the energy these little Vikings display. I especially like the relaxed mode so I can just enjoy the scenery, characters and fun of the game. For those who like to challenge themselves against the clock, you won’t be disappointed. The graphics are exceptional with rich bold colors in each scene. As tasks are completed, an explosion of color blooms erasing evil power and drabness of the ashen land leaving behind a beautiful peaceful forest. One of my favorite time management games. I am sure to be playing this over and over. Thank you Big Fish for giving your customers exciting, challenging, fun to play games like the Northern Tales series
