Customer Reviews


I love the new look. It is definately prettier. I love now how you are able to be rotate the buildings and decor. Well done G5. Hope we will get more quests soon as I think that taking 6 months for an update is a bit long, and I still see there is still one more production to be had.

I have given 5 stars, but deserves more.

Excellent game

It is an excellent game, I have been playing it since it came out and I can say that the new graphics really make it something else.

So good

A few things that could make it better.. but overall so addictive
