I enjoy time-and-resource management games and I have enjoyed the Monument Builders series though they've never been my favorites. I've played the first few levels of this one and it appears to be much like the others. The graphics are good and I like the actual history embedded in them (as opposed to the usual fantasy/imaginary story lines). And it's kind of fun to watch the progress of the monument as you go along.

But ... I find the sounds and the comments by the workers to be repetitive and annoying so I turn them off or way down. There is a lot of waiting around for workers to complete a task or materials to be delivered. And you can't click on a task until there is a worker available, so you can't get ahead of them. I suppose you could consider these to be just part of the challenge of the game, but I find it a little frustrating instead. On most of these games I'll take on the challenge of going for 3 stars, but here I move on to the next if I just get 2.

So, I'm not sure I'll keep it. I'll give a few more levels and see if it grows on me.

Thanks to GGOTD, MPC, and Whiterabbit.

The giveaway wrapper contains Themida code, which is sometimes blocked by antivirus software because Themida code can also be used to wrap (hide) malware. There are a few things you can do to ensure you get the game.

• White-list the giveaway files with your security software then install as normal

• Reboot your computer in safe mode with networking, install the game, then reboot out of safe mode

• Temporarily turn off your security, install the game, then reboot the security.

The game giveaway team have been giving away games since 2006 and have never given away a game infected with malware.

This is a brilliant game one of a series of games that have been offered on this set before. It is a time management game great graphics and gameplay. It is easy to learn how to play but hard to get 3stars on every level. The only thing that could make this game better is if you could click on a task before the last one is completed so a worker when free could go straight to the next task. Thank you mpc for offering the game today.

Always same kind of games, give us something really good, it can be older but good, even if it is not the newest
available, some people dont know few old games, ahh whatever, no one is reading this anyway,,

...................................Moderator comment..................................
We have to rely on developers and sites such as MyPlayCity to get these games. All the games given away are commercial games, sold at other sites such as Gamehouse, Big Fish Games etc. As for no one reading these comments. Thousands of community members visit this site every weekend and on the other side of the project every day. Your previous comment (due to inappropriate language) and subsequently those you posted in reply to your first comment being deleted have also been and will continue to be deleted exceptions will be any comment about today's game giveaways :).
Not every game is going to be liked by everyone, but I'm sure there will always be times when you'll find something you like. If you don't like today's games, please move on to the next one or go find other sites that give games away, for example, some of the bundle sites such as The Humble Bundle occasionally give away premium arcade games and sometimes even AAA titles; you just have to keep checking. Some community members such as Delenn often post details of such deals here and over in the forums (see my review for links to those.)

Monument Builders – Rushmore
In Brief
Monument Builders: Rushmore is a Time Management building game from the Monument Builders series (see links below to other free and commercial versions of Monument Builders e.g. Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Titanic, Alcatraz, Great Wall of China, Big Ben, Cologne Cathedral, Statue of Liberty, Empire State building and San Francisco).

Installation:
Monument Builders: Rushmore downloads to a 135 MB zip file that unzips to three files, (a setup.gcd security wrapper, the set-up file and a read me). Those with multiple hard drives can save games on any drive they wish. The newly installed game is 277 MB in size. The game installs to the following path by default, but can be changed by the user if you prefer:
C:\Program Files (x86)\MyPlayCity.com\Monument Builders – Rushmore
Four shortcuts are installed to the desktop. three of which can be safely deleted (Play Online Games, MyPlayCity Games and shortcuts to a free online game which vary each week). Also, if you don't like icons installed to the quick launch task bar, make sure you uncheck the box when the additional tasks window appears (after the Select Start Menu Folder window)
Introduction:
Prove that you are a perfect architect in the challenging game Monument Builders – Rushmore! Travel back in time and become the person in charge of building the famous Mount Rushmore! Lead the workers and manage resources with the help of Henry Johnson, the site foreman, to finish the projects in time! Banish the hordes of thieves trying to sabotage your work sites! Will you be up to the task of building a monument on such a vast scale? As well as being one of the world's most famous monuments, Mount Rushmore is a current symbol of the USA in American films and written works for which it has provided inspiration. Mount Rushmore now welcomes over 2 million visitors every year, retracing more than 150 years of American history. So try hard not to disgrace yourself while building it!

The Game:
The Monument Builders series has always been about allowing players to experience all the hard work and effort that went into some of the world's most iconic and memorable monuments. In this instalment of the game you'll get to witness the entire construction of Mount Rushmore from start to finish and do your part in it as well. It' has superb gameplay and a setting that everyone is sure to enjoy so we definitely recommend giving it a shot.
Perhaps the most impressive part of Monument Builders: Rushmore is how in touch it is with its setting. Throughout the entirety of the game you'll be told fun and interesting little facts about Mount Rushmore and its construction process. Learning these things while playing the game makes the experience more immersive and engaging. This feature isn't really something that you'd find in most other time management games since most of them have fictional settings and this is exactly why this game, and the whole Monument Builders series in general, is so unique.
Onto the gameplay, it's worth mentioning that Monument Builders: Rushmore isn't necessarily the most challenging time management game out there. If you have at least a decent understanding of how games in this genre work then you should be able to breeze through ti with no difficulty. This is actually a pretty nice change of pace since most time management games tend to become absurdly difficult especially during their later stages.

The gameplay formula it utilizes is still the same as it's been for many years now. Each level has a bunch of objectives you need to complete and to complete these objectives you must manage your resources, manage your time and of course manage all your workers. If you make use of your time, resources and workers efficiently then you'll be able to complete the level easily but if you don't do so and the timer runs out before the objectives are completed then the level will have to be repeated.
In terms of visuals, Monument Builders: Rushmore has a lot of great sights to take in. It's pretty satisfying to watch the construction of this iconic monument from start to finish but alongside that the game also has some stellar sound effects, a vibrant colour palette, solid art work and some very smooth animations.

Problems getting the game to work:
If you're having problems installing or activating or getting Monument Builders – Rushmore to work please visit the FAQ's Thread HERE and read through the communities comments because sometimes fixes have already been posted, for example, a common issue seen since the Themida wrapper was introduced three years ago is that some community members installation of the game are blocked by their security because Themida code has been known to hide malware, (usually an error message is flagged for example 'The executable is corrupted' even though in reality it is not); so as a precaution some anti malware programs will block and even delete the suspect installation files even though the files (i.e. the setup, read me and setup.gcd files are actually totally free from malware. This issue can be solved either by rebooting your computer in safe mode with networking or a quicker method is to temporarily turn off your security software to allow the installation. You could also try whitelisting the setup.gcd file. In the almost 11 years this game giveaway site has been operating there has 'never' been a game given away that was infected with malware.
If for any reason you want to contact the giveaway team, for example, you have a game to offer the community, or are unable to download the latest game or other issues that the FAQ's thread or these comments don't cover or solve you can do so HERE
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank MyPlayCity for giving away Monument Builders – Rushmore and also to the game giveaway team, as always, for securing other ways to get free games.

Whiterabbit-uk, Where is your conclusion? Your never include your own conclusion anymore. Why not?

............................Moderator Comment...........................


I've only missed conclusions for the past few weeks, simply because I'm so busy with other things at the moment, I haven't had enough time to play the games long enough for myself to give an informed opinion.
