What is there to say about this little game? It is simply a gem of a game that many haven't tried.

If you have been browsing through your local tech store or game shop, you may have passed this game in the bargain bin. SHAME. Next time you see this, dish out the couple dollars being charged and give it a try.

This game is great for pick up and play, and is not a system hog. It's suited well for a laptop gamer, especially those who don't have a top of the line powerhouse to keep them entertained on the road. Now matter how many distractions you get, you won't suddenly lose like a faster game.

The visuals are aged by today's standard, but are still pleasing.
The audio is marvelous with great voice acting by the narrator. ("There is gold here")
The gameplay is slow, and as a Age of Empires player, it took me some time to get used to the single button scheme.

Overall I can only suggest this game to those not looking for a hollywood experience, but just some relaxing fun.
