There's a timer.....how nice:)

[Post New]by DonnyDJ on Dec 18, 09 8:50 PM
I love games with timers....Except when HOGs have one...Those I play to relax. If people want a no timer option, I would agree with that, but to not have a timer at all in a time management game is the most ridiculous idea I have ever heard.

If Playfirst would wise up and put a no timer option in their dash games, they would sell even better, but the thought of having no timer at all is pretty sad..

Yes, "time" management should mean that there is a timer of some sort involved. I enjoy playing a lot of the TM games but for those of us who can't make the fast movements, buying these games is probably a waste of money. There's no reason why TM games can't replace timers with awards for no timer players; could still be based on time or for completing certain goals. Game sales would be greatly improved.

Unfortunately, a lot of the TM games are okay for the first hour (end of demo time) and then they get way to hectic. I have at least several games that I will probably never play again because of the time restrictions and/or click-fest needed to complete levels; latest being Chicken Chase. I got up to level 27 and just decided it wasn't worth the frustration.

For those of you who enjoy these click-fests, you won't like Tropical Farm and/or Virtual Farm but I purchased both and found both to be very charming games, a lot of fun, and not frantically frustrating. I was able to finish Tropical Farm with golds on all levels (did have to replay a few) and will probably never earn all the awards in Virtural Farm but it's a cute, never-ending type game that you can just play a little bit here or there.

So for all you time-crazed players, happy gaming. For me, I'll just sit back and enjoy TM games like Tropical Farm and Virtual Farm.
