Thoroughly enjoying this game so far. It's all about planning ahead and using the information you have been given to predict sales for each day. It can get a bit samey but if you enjoy games where you are building up a business then this is great. The characters are amusing and the towns are beautifully designed.

1) The levels are just harder in general either because there's more to do or there's less time allotted.2) Unlike the first Island Tribe, it does often matter which path you pick and you might need to replay a level to start with the optimum path to complete in time.3) The jewels are not optional now. You have to pick up at least some of them to pay off the pirate. At first I thought this would annoying but it was actually a good addition.4) You have the option to look for hidden symbols. This unfortunately was actually an annoying "improvement". I can't tell you how many times I literally didn't notice the hidden object until right as the clock had ticked down. I don't consider this type of game feature to be of the "time management" variety so I didn't really care for it.

This one's just as surreal and zany as the first snark busters, with just as much kooky steampunk crazy. The locations are surreal and well done, some of those pieces can be really hard to find. The interesting thing is that the tempo and circumstances of the game world can really suck you in and make you feel like you're on a clock, even if you're not. (Crashing airship!) My two fears for this series (that they would just drag out the snark endlessly with no resolution and that they would change the art style) have proven unfounded.

When i read the initial reviews, everyone was comparing Orczz to PvZ (Plants vs Zombies) - I played PvZ a lot, then tried Orczz. I enjoy Orczz more the PvZ for several reasons: the animation, the background music, and the theme. It seems faster in pace, and more challenging. It is also quite frustraing in the initial phases. First, the tutorial is quite limited, and it's tough inuitive learning. For example, there is no help learning to use your catapults - Hint: you adjust the range by holding down you mouse button - the more you hold, the further the range. The catapults are important to attacking as well as defending - but they take time to recharge. Other items, like the bombs, seem to be unresponsive when clicking on them to place them - this lagging can be fatal, since the Orczz keep coming! The game screens give little advice, and you need to learn by mistakes - for example, the spy game is unforgiving, Moreover, when you lose, you often see that your next inventory has only basic fighters - your stronger warriors are not available, but the more powerful Orczz remain. I wish you could replay the games. Another limitation is that, while you can save your current game, you can only play one player at a time - you cannot save multiple games. There's a real strategy in the game, not only in the placement of your warriors, but also in setting a priority in terms of killing Orczz, collecting gold, placing your troops, using the catapults, and selecting other weapons (bombs, etc). You need to somehow do all these things while the Orczz keep attacking. Several times the timer reaches zero, yet the Orczz keep coming! Still, if you are ready to learn from your defeats, each game is more fun than the last! So, think protracted struggle - you will prevail over time! Addictive, challenging, fun game. Highly recommedned!

Fun and addictive but way too short and does not get really difficult.Maybe Trio II?
