Summary: Rachel's Retreat is a nice change from standard time managment fare as it involves some builder elements with regards to the upgrades (which have to be done whilst playing) rather than the usual visiting a shop at the end of each level. The graphics are incredible for a game of this price and the music is suitably soothing to fit with the theme of the game.
Summary: At first thought "Ugh, another spa game" but imho this one is way better than all the Spa Mania/Sallies Salon games. I like that you just have to click, not drag to move the characters. Like that there are a large variety of upgrades & strategies & goal levels. The animation is more complex than other spa games & the mini-game is similar to the one in Wedding Dash 4. There is some poor English in the directions but still easy to get the gist of it.
Summary: Rachel's is pretty fun and it's a unique theme. I came back to give this an upgraded review as I have played several hours of it now - it is quite addicting! You get a good number of attractions to add to your spa - and each is upgradable, some to accommodate up to 3 people at a time, others to have a better impact on the people that use it. You have to watch as your people can be sometimes injured (haven't had it happen yet!
Summary: I did give Rachel's Retreat a fair shot, and what could've been a wonderful game in the overall spectrum of things was marred by errors and sluggish gameplay in spurts. The amount of minigames, stations, great character animations and events, as well as the charming atmosphere and music were very well done.
Summary: I loved this game but I recommend not buying it until they fix the glitches. The main glitch is not being able to place the magic ball. The magic ball is one of the objectives for the last resort. You can buy it but it won't let you place it anywhere. It seems impossible to finish the game without placing it.
Summary: This is a very visually attractive game; the music is also very appealing and relaxing. The upgrades are fun to add and it's easy to catch on to the tasks. I found it more interesting to play than "Sally's Spa;" there's a level of sophistication in the graphics here that many games never achieve. Very pleasant to play!
Summary: I usually stay away from time management games since I tend to get overwhelmed by them easily. However, I thought I would give this one a try. I found the game to be very fun and didn't even notice how much time passed by whenever I played it. It's difficulty curve is well balanced, allowing TM amateurs like me to get accustomed to the steady, but increasingly challenging pace.
Summary: I finally got the game to open.Boy, this is somewhat better than the Sally's Spa TM game and I wrote a blazing review for that. This one has great music so relaxing while you work that you have a little nirvana, too!
