Glad to see a cheerful TM game this morning so I bought with no hesitation. Running Windows 10 64 Bit OS with no problems thus far. Cute game, good graphics, has relaxed mode but you can also make it as challenging as you desire, you can't beat something for everyone. Had the sound off so I cannot comment on the music. Everyone runs around getting stuff pretty fast and you don't have to pick up food, rocks and gold from producing locations! I'm off to play some more, good job developers. Will come back and edit if I run into a monster I can't kill off.

Enjoy!

This game seems like it was made by the same developers as Viking Brothers; the first was a really good, fun game with some challenge to it but the second was too easy with no challenge at all. This game seems to fall into the latter category; far too easy and too repetitive for my liking. There are too many characters doing different tasks; Alicia has to do the rubbish clearing rather than the workers and someone else removes the panda cubs. Why?

You do collect gold from round holes dotted about the map but otherwise the resources are added automatically, which most builder games do nowadays. The buildings were hard to distinguish from the rubbish and the game was just tedious and disappointing. Why it's a CE is beyond me.

I might go for the SE if I'm desperate for something to play but this CE did nothing for me.

No technical issues with the demo. Desktop running Win7 Prof 64-bit.

To easy! Up grades are automatic in the rooms so you don't get to choose what you'd like. Fun if easy is what you like.

Why is this a Collector's Edition? Is there a strategy guide?

I can't find a strategy guide (not that you'd need one) - just some "bonus" wallpapers, which is a total waste for me. This game appears to be a variation of the 12 Labours of Hercules ones, with the same kind of puzzle pieces to collect and puzzles to solve between the sections. I can't see why this should be a CE, though. Since I like an easy game now and then, I'd probably buy it as an SE.

There is one reason only for why this is a CE and the reason is more money.

There is a strategy guide for this game. I used it when I needed to find the puzzle pieces for each level.

I agree that it was not worthy of 2 credits and that it is a relatively easy game. However, there are times that I want easy rather than getting stressed out that the game is too difficult.

I do like the graphics.

If gamers are fretting that you have to use 2 credits for a CE edition, then just wait until one of the half-off coupon days. That's what I did with this weekend's coupon and ended up spending about the same amount as I would with 1 credit and still have my credits to spare.

Meh. Cute but meh. You have a timer but not much in the way of strategy. But it's CUTE, I said. Of course, I may very well be tainted by the fact I gots me a great and much-awaited timed strategy that ain't made its way here to BF yet. No comparison. But it's a nice little game by the developers of the 12 Labors of Hercules.

You do get extra levels with the CE version. The last section that looks like the inside of a castle is extra. The main story line ends at level 40. So you get 10 extra levels after that with the CE. Helps make it worth it for me.
Plus its funny and has relaxing music.
I hope the developers keep doing more for this series. I especially liked saving the pandas - nice new type of goal.

I looked like the Hercules games, so I bought it assuming it would be as challenging. Sadly, it wasn't. I played in Normal mode with no hiccups and then in Difficult mode only being my Normal time by seconds. I wish, like in Hercules, you could add generating bushes into your queue. I also wish it had the other extras to find, like 5 skulls, like HoH had. As, I'm not a fan of cut scenes, these also annoyed me since there was no skip button. I had to click through them. All that being said, I'm glad it's set in a different place. Definitely a game I'd suggest to people new to TM games.
