I too have played all the Moai games. This one is certainly more difficult right from the beginning. And I also disliked lighting the fires in the right order as it was random. But it was only one level. I have a bad habit of skipping the tutorial and clicking through the talking in the beginning, but very often that "talking" includes the instructions I desperately need later! They have made it very hard to get gold on some of these, for sure, but I know I will be playing for weeks and will get my money's worth!

I played untimed first and loved it. Now I'm trying to go through timed and, man, it's hard! You have to played timed to get to the "bonus" levels, you have to get gold on the 3 levels previous to that bonus level. There have been times when all the little workers ALL HAVE TO BE WORKING ON THE SAME BUILDING or whatever instead of one of them going to do that other thing I need them to do, or to do the final offering or whatever and the time blinks out. You know, you guys don't have to all do the same things at the same time, ya know! There are maybe two levels I'm not sure are even doable--yea, I studied them and I don't think they are doable. You need to do a whole lot more thinking and planning then in previous Moai. I've even resorted to writing down exactly how many of each resource will be needed (cause I can't remember otherwise). It's fun, but in about another week or two I'm going to give up if I can't get gold on every level. There's only so many times I can stand to replay before I have to just chalk it up to "I can't do it." Hopefully by then a new TM game will be out. Man, and I hate those ghosts! Those little squirrels can get a bit annoying although I'm trying to be tolerant--at least the birds eventually fly away if you ignore them long enough. Good game! Oh, you need to be a wee bit more useful in your "Guide"--saying "talk to the Guru" or whatever doesn't help when the guru wants something (thus, only a question mark) and you can't figure out what he wants.

I have to admit, my favorite Moai game is part IV. You don't have to continue clicking on buildings that need cooling or heating all of the time, and part 5 has a lot of glitches. No one knows what the wooden plates even look like, and a lot of us have collected 18 figurines, and we either don't have all of them, or it is some kind of glitch. I have re-played the game often, and can see no way we can achieve all achievements. I like the game, and I would recommend it, but it isn't my favorite,

Now That I have played this game a few times, i can say it is a good game, but, the devs have gone way overboard with the sickness, ghosts, jelly fish and the drought.

far too much going on at once if you have played the other games they have the ghosts and obstacles, but this one is so very frustrating it is a wonder I finished it twice.

I only hope they take on board the way the later stages play with so many things going on and what you have to complete as well. Far too much of the ghosts and yes I know you can slow them down, but sometimes you do not have enough manna to do this or it is not on the left side to use. The shields are good if there was more of them or they were not expensive if they are in the small "temple".

This could've been a great game. Instead, it is a huge mess.

There are these unexplained characters with question marks on them, seeming to be errors... there is zero logic for where to go & when, the items you need to use are not in sensible places, and most of all the instructions - on the rare occasion that there are any - are totally useless.

You have to exit the game screen just to visit the guide, but the guide doesn't explain anything. Methinks this game needed beta testing. On quite a few levels we found ourselves unable to move forward with absolutely no way of figuring out why, or maybe there were indications why but they wouldn't fit.
