YEA A TIME MGMT GAME. WE NEED MORE OF THESE BF. PLEASE KEEP THEM COMING!!!

This game was developed by the Farm Frenzy folks. It is quite similar to Super Market Mania, has 100 levels total - 20 in a grocery, 20 in a fish market, 20 in a bakery, 20 in a butcher shop and 20 in a delicatessen. I actually like this one better than Super Market Mania though. I didn't like the constant clicking on kids and the security guy.

The graphics are fantastic but some folks may not like the black bars. I have my computer set to automatically stretch and most games do.

Also of note, a couple of the lines were in some foreign language. On level 8 it would NOT let me click the clown no matter where I clicked him.

All in all definitely worth a try and for me a purchase.

I'm so glad to see this game finally get here and I have already bought it didn't make it through the whole demo I had to stop and buy. It's very similar to Supermarket Mania only with ghost this time. You have to stock your shelves, help the customers, stop shoplifter's who would have ever thought ghost would be thieves. You have to keep your eyes on watch for the shoplifters, clowns and keep a close eye on this dude, and other zany characters. The graphics are awesome the upgrades are awesome and this is just a very solid and great time management game and if you don't get the score you want you can replay the day. Thank you developers and Big Fish for a great game.

A sweet, quirky, fun and polished TM game that is unfortunately not my cup of tea.

It's very well made with smooth game-play and good progression. It's basically a mad-click type game. While the mechanics don't offer anything innovative, the theme, graphics and ease-of-play make this a must-have for fans of the genre.

I personally prefer games where I get to tweak the prices, hire employees, fiddle with inventory stock so it's not a purchase for me.

I recommend this for anyone who enjoys spa/salon type games. If you are a fan, you will really enjoy this game.

As I really like a good TM it is always a joy to see one of the rare few

But this is so old school it really cant keep my interest for more than 10 minutes. There were sooo many of these kind of games some years ago and they are just not funny anymore.

No - lets have some more Royal Envoy and Roads to Rome

Still wish everyone happy gaming though

First, thank you BFG for offering another TM game after they were offered even more rarely than usual.

As another reviewer mentioned before, this is basically Supermarket Mania but with ghosts. As the ghosts behave just like regular customers, it is not really a new twist and doesn't add anything to the game play. Unfortunately, there are not many other new innovations either, so that for me it felt like I was playing Supermarket Mania just with somewhat different graphics. There are some special guests, who, if happy upon leaving, provide gifts like automatically filling all shelves, leaving money or making everyone happy (the clown, by the way, looks rather scary). There are also some customers who want to know more about goods, so one has to go to them and give them the information.

But that's about it (as far as I could judge after playing about 45 minutes of the demo). It's a very obvious copy of Supermarket Mania, even with extremely similar graphics. It reminds me of when they put Farm Frenzy out in countless versions that differed in nothing but the graphics and I'm not enticed to pay for a game that is more or less the same as a game I already own. I realize it's hard to come up with something new constantly when so many games are out, but such an obvious lack of imagination is rather unpleasant.

I quite enjoyed Supermarket Mania (but then I've learnt to love Farm Frenzy - with the exception of the last two) so I was pleased to see this out today as I've been hankering for something new.

What I liked -
1) the new and improved graphics.
2) the upgrades - having a limited choice.
3) Not having to clean and stock the shelves to get the bonus points (as per no. 1).
4) The hero & villain characters.

It's not a radical departure from the first two releases but there's enough change to keep me happy.

What I don't like:

The glitch I encountered at Level 20, the butchers.

Aside from that, a good enough TM

Okay, was all set to not "like" the idea of going to the dark side (spooky part), but played anyway. Excellent graphics and I like the changes, fast clerk and refill of cart is fast. Was going great, got gold through level 7, then level 8 hit. I could not get the table to accept the drink made with milk and pineapple. Made sure (I think) that they were the right ingrediants (they sparkled when I went to table at the first) but it just wouldn't lay the drink down.

Anyway will probably be a buy for me, as I have waaaaaaaaaaaaited a loooooooong time for a TM game.

Really, BFG, are the tm's that sparse?

I love TM and all things Spooky. This is a good game. There is a nice variety of characters and food to work with. There is also a lot of upgrades to choose from. This is going to be a buy for me after they fix some of the problems in the game. I will keep checking back for a update. Hopefully it comes out quick. I really want this one.

I am enjoying playing this game. But why spooky mall. It could of been call Mall and I would have still bought it. Don't like the dark side. Beside the undead do not eat. Keep the TM games coming BF. Love this one.

I played this at the developers website a few weeks back. Have been waiting for BF to get it. Downloading it right now.

It's the same premise as Supermarket Mania. You have a shopping cart, you go around and fill shelves up, make coffee, clean the floors, etc. Only with a Halloween theme of monsters as customers.

In the hour I played, I got to the second store. If you make certain characters happy, they do things for you. Superman will refill all the shelves. Dracula will clean the entire store for you.

I really liked this game, and am so excited to play it. WEEEEEE!!!!!

Can't tell you how happy I am that there is a TM game worth buying!! Yes, the game is similar to Supermarket Mania, but with better graphics and twists. Played the hour demo and then purchased it immediately. Thanks, Big Fish!

Another great little TM game, which I enjoy. Like others have said, this one is similar to the previous shopping ones, but with a twist... a ghost twist. Many levels, and the graphics are cute. Game runs smoothly for me on my PC. My favs to play... adventure, HOGS, puzzles, and TM's. Currently, and for awhile now, I have been all HOG'd out, so a TM is welcomed, and this is a cute one.
