Summary: I thought this was a very good game after the demo - The challenges, the different point of view of the main character, the setting. But after a while, it gets somehow boring and it simply made me lose my interest. The storyline wasn't catchy enough: I got all the mystery but it was maybe too much and, since the point I played, I understand nothing of it and desired to understand nothing more.
Summary: I played this game for five minutes and then bought it. I loved the megaplex madness games and have been wishing for a while for another game in that style. I have now played it for about two hours and I don't regret buying it. Yes, it is an incredibly challenging, fast paced and busy game. Also very frustrating at times but that sort of game really appeals to me.
Summary: As another reviewer noted, this is very similar to Megaplex Madness--but also to Burger Bustle, especially in how difficult it is. The puzzles are especially difficult! This increased difficulty and the fact that it really adheres to my personal favorite subgenre of TM games--like Diner Dash etc.: color matches, customers, points based on customer happiness, different personalities having different patience levels--makes it my most recent favorite.
Summary: After playing the beta of this game I was very excited for the release, only to be very disappointed with the gameplay. This is pretty much "Megaplex Madness" meets football, and that's it. Anyone who enjoyed those games will probably enjoy this one as well, but the game leaves alot to be desired. Alot does change between difficulty levels but that doesn't add to the fun. And the arcade mimi-games are pitiful at best.
Summary: When I beta'd this game it was a 4.5/5 for me but somehow in trying to rush this game out for SuperBowl Sunday, it seems like the developers made a lot of errors. Everything about this game should be great, but there are many glitches. The zombie arcade game doesn't work. On level 34 an error message comes up. On level 47 only 2 colors show up & combo numbers disappear if a coin shows up on a station--also almost all points & money disappear before level 48.
Summary: I had planned on buying this game outright but after playing the full demo, I think I am going to pass. I do like many things about the game - the theme itself, the sound effects (such as if you make someone who needs restroom wait too long lol, the football music, etc), and unique aspects such as the fly balls you can catch. Unfortunately, I think the developers are pushing the frustration aspect of the game in such a way that it overshadows the fun most of the time.
Summary: I have downloaded, I have played, and I love this game. If you are looking for a challenging time management game with longevity, look no further. Busy Bea's has the same mechanics as the Megaplex Madness series (same developers). 150 levels in total, and the difficulty can be altered at any time. The "puzzle" levels are quite challenging, but there is a way how you can prevent yourself from getting frustrated.
Summary: ..after the latest Delicious game (and a thousand dashes), this one seems unplayable. Feels and looks ancient to me. In the 3d level I was already higly annoyed by doing constant repair jobs, so one should take the hint and stop. Too much BAL and roads of rome, probably. Also the color mathing gets on my nerves but if that's your thing this truly looks like the perfect game, nice controls too. I like the way you can shake your little brads, made me smile:) .
Summary: I can't tell you how many times I've played and replayed the wonderful TM duo Megaplex Madness and Megaplex Summer Blockbuster from Gold Sun Games. How great is it that the long-awaited semi-sequel to these masterpieces has at last been released! Of the four-word title of the current offering, the most apt word is "Busy" -- task after task pops up, making it challenging to pass levels even before the end of the hour-long trial period.
