Hi all.

I agree with the above.

You have a choice to do 1 or 2 things a day.

Basically you have @ 7 fruits to maintain & 1 oppotunity a day to buy a fruit that will give you freshness points, that translates into % & £££.

The freshness wains daily so you have to keep on your toes.

Having said that, your second choice is to either work for cash or buy lessons in a skill.

If you opt for cash, there are hidden fruits for you to find while serving customers which if found, you will be rewarded by a full freshness score.

The other option is to pay for a skill. Here you are given a challenge to serve but when completed you increase that skill, e.g. speed, singing (to soothe the customers) reshuffling the line up etc.

My only gripe so far is there was not a log in option so I can not change players or let any of my rugrats play until I have finished.

All in all a very good startegy game.

It reminds me of the diner dash game where you had to work out what recipe for what customer. Totally different but similar thought processes.

8/10 for it's genre. 7/10 over all.

Is there any way for more than one player to play? I don't see any place to enter any other profiles. Am I missing it?

"Click to Change Player" can be found in the bottom left corner of the title screen.

[i]What's with all these silly games. Bring on IHOG/HOG. My apologies to those who like these games. But I am home sick and I want to play games. I know, I know it's not about me. LOL

Thank you, Stewama, I had to switch from full screen to see it.

Today's release is a HOG.

With all due respect, for the last three months I've not been able to complete a punch card for wont of TMs. I usually have to buy them from the developers because BFG is so full of iHOGs & HOGs. So when TMs show up here, I already have them. This one I don't. So... cool!

I'm also away from home but I don't complain that BFG doesn't gear directly to me, I just make due with what's given.

As far as a review of this game, it shows up in my window & I cannot expand it so that distracts me & also makes it difficult to click in areas on the bottom of the screen. It LOOKS very interesting & I'll keep trying (I have another Ice Cream Craze that I really enjoyed).

I agree with the previous reviews and love this game.I even bought it before end of the trial !!

There is so much to do that I am just afraid of a new addicting game.Its difficult to leave it.

Just one thing more : Gaining skills become very challenging.

LOVE TM games and feel spoiled with this one.Besides : No technical issue at this point.

First of all -- Thanks, Big Fish, for offering TWO TIME MANAGEMENT GAMES (this Ice Cream Craze and Cake Shop 3) in ONE WEEK! I was so used to a seemingly endless parade of dreary, occult-themed HOGs, that I scarcely know what to do with my good fortune this week! Of course, I bought both Cake Shop 3 and "Craze" immediately.

That said, is anybody having trouble with the non-linear nature of this game? I'm finding it difficult to visualize my goal...

I really enjoyed this game and am looking forward to buying it. I enjoyed the first Ice Cream Craze game and this one didn't disappoint. Really cute and fun TM game.

I have played the demo and thought it very good, so a buy for me. I did have the first game, but it kept crashing and I found it a bit boring after a while, but this one has so much to do and think about. I mean which order do you buy fruits etc so it must have a good replay value. I am not finding it easy though, still very challenging so far.

Ok... I came here to post my glee about this TM sequel but my glee was temporarily stifled due to the complaint about HOGs.... Seriously? What nerve is that when every other game released is some form of HOG. What's worse is when a game that's really a HOG is mislabeled as a TM (e.g., Shop-N-Spree Family Fortune). Sigh....

Back on topic: this is a nice game. You can tell that the developers took a lot of time to incorporate details to enhance this sequel. Lots of opportunities to strategize. if you're a TM purist like me, you'll like this game.

I will add that it's been nice to have a few more choices for TM games in recent weeks, e.g., Fix-It-Up Eighties, Ice Cream Craze: Natural Hero. HOGs dominate the market, unfortunately, so maybe those who prefer those games are less appreciative.... Must be nice.

If you have to apoligize for what you just said then why say it?

Opened the game and was fascinated by it. Nice graphics. But when I started playing disappointed. The game is very slow! Everything is done very slowly and it annoyed me. I was ready to smash the monitor so that this girl was faster. I deleted the game.

Cute game but after playing 25 minutes, and fighting Dr. Bane, I ran into a bug where my character would not move and/or deliver ice cream to the customer. Although the game was enjoyable, I just wasn't into it enough to retry it and quit the game.

The game is cute, you are given goals to meet and the freshness of your fruit factors into your market share. You have the choice to buy fresh fruit to serve, earn cash for free or learn a skill that will help you with your customers. The gameplay itself is pretty simple but I'm sure this game will get frantic enough with time. As customers come in, you must serve them the proper combinations of ice cream treats, and sometimes you have added challenges such as finding hidden fruits on the screen while you're serving people. I would rate this game at a 3.5 for originality in gameplay.

P.S. I also find it highly rude that people constantly feel the need to moan and complain every time something other than an IHOG adventure is released when they are a nearly everyday occurrence here.

I much prefer TM games, but this one? Not for me - deleted it after 10 minutes.
