Good morning fellow pond dwellers!!

I've played about half my free hour and it looks like I'll be digging in my piggy bank for this one. I'm usually more for diner dash type but this one seems to be pretty user friendly. I like the way you can put the buildings where you want them, to make it unique to the player.

Played this game last year on another game site and was disappointed with the constant breaking down of buildings. Don't know if they fixed it or not, but it was more of a chore than fun.

You are right........I ended my trial, bought the game, started doing pretty well, then the whole town caught fire, not enough income to repair all buildings and couldn't generate enough money to fix them. Pretty frustrating..................started over twice, thinking maybe I could have done something different with no luck.

Boring! I finished this game in two hours. Wish I never wasted the club credit for this one. All you do is save up money, build something and then take out the fires and repair, repair, repair. That's it. So stupid I could've played this one in my sleep.

OMG i feel soooooooooo stupid having bought this game. i finished it in 2 1/2 hours i couldnt have been more disappointed, this game is basically 1 level. u work on 1 town, have a few "goals" and when u think it is finally going to go somewhere...it ends


ME--->
THE GAME-->

they should change the name to "Sucker Trap"


*i realize this thread is "1st thoughts" well, the entire game only has enough room for a 1st thought, once u get to thinking, its over

I've only played 20 mins of the trial and am not interested in buying it, or playing the rest of the trial. I have the max of family visitors but am not making enough money to continue to run everything I have built or upgrade anything to attract more visitors.

Glad I checked the forum before buying this one. I played my first hour and spent most of that time waiting for money. It was boring. I get really pissed out wasting a credit on games I finish in only a few hours. I won't be wasting a credit on this one. I want to know when they are going to get Farm Mania 2!

How do you resolve the bottomless well causing nearby attractions to lose money? Same for the little chapel? Says they have issues, but no clue on how to resolve those issues?

I don't think there is a resolution. Sometimes you get increased tourism through a similar event.

I think its a bit like a lucky dip... you get good events, and bad events... entirely random.

Except they seem to become more and more bad events as you progress through the game

I figured out why I wasn't making enough money and that makes all the difference (!) but now I have alot of time to waste waiting for new ideas or the ability to upgrade what I already have.... I don't feel the need to build more than one of anything so, now that I have everything, I'm just killing time waiting for new ideas so I can build new stuff now that I have expanded the land area.

Too boring. The main thing you do - wait for money and repair buildings. It's not very fun in my book.

I never even made it through the trial! Boring! There is nothing to this game but repairing and waiting for money! And don't get me started on trying to build the roads around everything! Too frustrating for me!

I have to agree with most of you.. boring game! You spend most of your time waiting for your bank account to raise enough to get anywhere. then you spend most of your money fixing buildings and putting out fires. I did finish the 1 hour trial, but won't be wasting my money on it as a purchase.

This game actually has the potential to be a lot of fun if it wasn't for the completely boring aspect. It takes too long to raise enough cash to buy the various exhibits and then you don't make enough each cycle to add up to a quick enough cash flow. I think that's what makes the game last as long as it does... the waiting! Then you get these messages to go back to city hall to see what the next person wants, and find that you have to raise yet another 20 grand. Then you no sooner get the thing built, and it's falling apart. Quite frankly, the federal government should be closing the whole town down until they bring their exhibitions up to code! LOL

The concept is fun and could have made for a pretty decent game, but I nearly fell asleep playing it. Not a great sign.

I'm glad I read this forum. I'm sitting there in the town with no instructions forthcoming and wondering what is up with this game? How do I even play it.

Luckily I came here and found out that IS HOW you play it.

Well that is dumb!

I finished my hour and it grew on me so I will get it, but probably with a free game code at the end of the month through the Punch Card. I do agree that you spend far too much time waiting for enough money to build the stuff the city council comes up with but I like it and, if my budget wasn't so tight, I would pay to get it now.

I am so mad!!! I paid for this game only to beat it in a couple of hours and find that there's nowhere else to go! What a waste of money...I'm so sorry I didn't check the forum first. I can't afford to spend money on games that stink!

Don't waste your credits. Finished it in under 3 hours and it was a very diossapointing ending. It just said "You've won" but the game keeps on going with nothing to do but repair buildings as they catch fire about once every 20 seconds. Dull. Next.

I wouldn`t buy this game, because of the other reviews and I have lost my interest in building games for a few months.
