Lucky Luke is Monument Builders at its best - fun, cute storyline although I was a bit confused by it; apparently there's some French comic book it's based on? Granted I'm over the hill, but I could not tell the difference between iron and rock a few times. Nor could I understand it half the time. Also, if you're too busy doing something else and forget to collect the resource, it doesn't prevent the building to continue the production. The screen is just annoyingly messy and confusing, with or without the stupidly enormous pop-up tutorial.

It does get more difficult as it goes along, and I did play a few levels multiple times to get three stars, and there are a couple of levels that I've just given up on getting three stars after multiple tries - but unlike the later Monument Builders games, I didn't get angry or frustrated - I feel like, if I really wanted to put in more effort and more tries, I could get those last two levels up to three stars. I'm not familiar with Lucky Luke or the infamous Dalton brothers, are they some sort of historical figures? Also I got stuck in level 2 and didn't know what I had to do to get the resources I needed.

There didn't seem to be an option.

One of the earlier levels required me to build Iron Sea: Frontier Defenders bank then fix all the holes in the road.

It is a great little game just to pass the time, but not something that you would want to sit and play until you beat it. After a few levels in the west, you take off to the East and play a few levels there, after all the railroad doe have to meet up somewhere between the East and West, but who will finish first? There are bonus rounds as well, which gives a nice goal to working through the levels. Date published: Rated 3 out of 5 by wallyp from Had fun but 3 stars not always possible I had fun with the game but there are a couple of levels where you can't get 3 stars. I never was able to work out what to do with this large red arrow, I clicked here there and everywhere to no avail.

The dynamite blows and you cannot repair the hole for the same reason. The Railroad Tracks need constant repair, and Bandits are constantly trying to derail the train with dynamite that needs diffusing before it explodes!

If you don't have enough resources for example to build a grocery store, it's extremely difficult to figure out what resources you lack because when you hover over the icon the resources you lack are shown in red, BUT the pictures are so teeny tiny and I have a 27' screen I ended up guessing at what the resources were. The major frustrations remain though; the somewhat 'vague' areas to click your mouse, and the interminable wait for resources make the game somewhat laboured and 'hohum'. There didn't seem to be an option. And when Luke finally says he's going to leave us alone to play the levels - big sigh of relief - his horse, Jolly Jumper, jumps right in with more instructions. I used to read all the books I could get about the French cowboy - am I a total dork if I admit I had a bit of a crush on Luke? If you decide to read the texts in the beginning of each level, the timer doesn't stop for you to do so. Other than that minor detail, the game is super fun! For example, Level 15 East: The last set of bandits don't show up until you are already past time to receive 3 stars and even if the rest of the goals are met, 2 stars is the best you can do. Just hover the mouse over it and its done. If you enjoy the MB games, then you'll enjoy this one. Now you just need to wave your mouse at it. Workers can be hired at the local saloon how funny is that Banks are built to receive gold, grocery stores provide food and the Undertakers provide wood that's funny too and the good ole Post Office is where you order supplies by clicking on the desired materials of Stone, Iron, RR ties etc, and you will need to click on the supply horse when the load is ready to deliver to the Post Office. It is a great little game just to pass the time, but not something that you would want to sit and play until you beat it.

This is one of those games that I will play repeatedly when I just need to relax after a hard day of fulfilling my crafts orders. It does require some strategy. Also, if you're too busy doing something else and forget to collect the resource, it doesn't prevent the building to continue the production. My daughter is 9 and loved it - I just felt it wasn't challenging enough for me to want to buy it.

There are bonus rounds as well, which gives a nice goal to working through the levels. In one level LL gibbered something about the dog then a large red arrow kept pointing to a yellow thing behind a rock. All in all, for me, Lucky Luke is Monument Builders like it used to be - fun, relaxing, immersive, and not so challenging that you want to throw a rock at it. The problem came into play with the resources required to complete a project. This one looked good, but didn't quite live up to my expectations. It is a great little game just to pass the time, but not something that you would want to sit and play until you beat it. Literary figure?

  3. In the end I had to destroy the bank to get the stone and then I was able to order more. My daughter is 9 and loved it - I just felt it wasn't challenging enough for me to want to buy it. There didn't seem to be an option.

  5. For example, Level 15 East: The last set of bandits don't show up until you are already past time to receive 3 stars and even if the rest of the goals are met, 2 stars is the best you can do. I lasted fifteen minutes of the demo.

  6. Doesn't make sense. You buy the resources from the post office so you don't want to purchase a bunch of stone when you need iron. And when Luke finally says he's going to leave us alone to play the levels - big sigh of relief - his horse, Jolly Jumper, jumps right in with more instructions. In fact, I'm already bored and I'm only half way through.

  7. I've just played the 1-hour trial, but I intend to buy it. Nor could I understand it half the time. Not only that, but as other reviews have stated it's difficult to tell which resources you need.

  8. After a few levels in the west, you take off to the East and play a few levels there, after all the railroad doe have to meet up somewhere between the East and West, but who will finish first? Here's what I found the most interesting with this TM game, First you play the game in the Wild West, it's the same scene each time, you're just making improvements to the town each time. The pictures of the resources are tiny. I didn't have enough formless grey blobs - er, stone. Love these sort of games Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by loopyerme from Just 1 Teensy Problem I was so very sad when the 1 hour trial was over and could barely wait to get the game.

  9. If you don't have enough resources for example to build a grocery store, it's extremely difficult to figure out what resources you lack because when you hover over the icon the resources you lack are shown in red, BUT the pictures are so teeny tiny and I have a 27' screen I ended up guessing at what the resources were.

And when Luke finally says he's going to leave us alone to play the levels - big sigh of relief - his horse, Jolly Jumper, jumps right in with more instructions. I've played the Empire State Building one only, and was pleased to find one major frustration removed, that being you having to click on a building to 'send' the resource back to base.

  10. Give it a try if you like Luke, the West, and construction games. What's with the dog with the weird name? I've just played the 1-hour trial, but I intend to buy it. He's a cardboard figure and certainly non representative of any true Native culture. This is one of those games that I will play repeatedly when I just need to relax after a hard day of fulfilling my crafts orders.

  11. Granted I'm over the hill, but I could not tell the difference between iron and rock a few times. Rated 5 out of 5 by kooka95 from Monument Builders in the Wild West Those who have already played the Monument Builders series will find this one very similar. There is also a glitch on Level 14 West. This was boring and very hard to get 3 stars I am always up for a challenge but I tried over and over and only got 3 stars on a few levels.

  12. However, I have gotten stuck on one level or another when trying for 3 stars. Rantanplan, the chief, is a villain in the Lucky Luke stories. This is one of those games that I will play repeatedly when I just need to relax after a hard day of fulfilling my crafts orders. There are bonus rounds as well, which gives a nice goal to working through the levels.

  13. I didn't like anything else about it, it's a mess. Thumbs up! In one level LL gibbered something about the dog then a large red arrow kept pointing to a yellow thing behind a rock. It makes you waste some precious seconds. I recommend it!
