lol well at first i hated this game, i regretted buying it, but after a week i came back to it and looked up lets plays and video tutorials. Now that i know how to play effectively i have to say is quite satisfying watching my townies completely eradicate any form of siege the game throws at me all while watching my town grow and advance and expand. im not saying that its easy now not by any means, but if you enjoy a stratigical style game, have the patience to learn how to play it (the in-game tutorial is rubbish so dont bother trying that) then i think youll thoroughly enjoy it. on the other hand, you cant directly tell townies to walk to a certain area and stay there. patrolling guards can miss enemies and your town can suffer for it (its best to have at least one on simple guard duty) and heros are sporadic in movement, and unless your able to adapt quickly, map placement can be luck-of-the-draw as well. its not a bad game, but it can be frustrating

Both of these are clearly the most objective and unbiased reviews of the game i've ever seen. Was that an unnecessarily redundant statement of how clearly objectively unbiased they are?

You bet it was.

On a more serious note, i'd say whether you buy this game would depend entirely on what aspects of missing gameplay you can deal with and whether you already own Gnomoria. For instance, Towns lacks the ability to replace farmable land once you've dug it up. This means you have to be very careful not to destroy grassy areas that you may need for farming purposes later. It also lacks a proper way to equip your heroes with gear that will keep them alive as they delve deeper into the dungeon.

Towns does have quite a bit of content though and it has only been getting more as time has gone on. You'd probably get a better idea of whether this is a game for you by watching some youtube videos and playing the demo than you'll ever get from anyone here on the forums though. We could talk about positives and negatives until the end of time but how much they'll matter to you is something you can only truely discover from experience.

If you like sandbox simulations where you can let your creativity decide what your goals are and how you go about achieving them. Then, this game is a MUST BUY.

If that is not what floats your boat. DO NOT BUY. Simple, eh?

Indeed. A little too simple i'd say. Just liking the concept behind this game is no guarantee you'll like this game just as much as not generally liking this game concept is no guarantee you'll hate this game.

I would not call this game a "MUST BUY" by any standards, but I would say that if you're a huge fan of town management games and have always been looking for one that provides you with the freedom of no set goals and you're forgiving with missing/broken elements of gameplay then this one MIGHT be good for you. Say what you like about the game but there's no question that it isn't perfect.

I would definately say play the demo to get the best idea of weather you will like it. :)

Being as gnomoria was mentioned, I would say that I like towns more than I like gnomoria.
But, that is also a personal opinion so take it with a grain of salt.

Definately watch some lets plays and tutorials on youtube! :)

Maybe in a year or two when (if) the bugs, AI issues and the cumbersome user interface have been fixed, I would consider recommending this one. As it stands right now though, I'd say that there are better alternatives available.
