Towns brings a fresh new take on the city building/management genre by introducing many RPG features.
Not easy, but not so hard. Some parts of this game are like "The Settler" or "Dwarf Fortress", and it is more easier than DF. (Well, that doesn't mean you won't be fail in the beginning...) In my point, there are some space for improving, even though, it's a good game, I like to play it.
I played this game for awhile and loved almost every moment. I enjoy the challenge of sieges but its a bit unbalanced. The game has improved tons over time and most of the things I had issues with have been address but there are still a few kinks I think it needs to work out.
Once you work out how not to get completely owned by your first town siege, this is a wonderful game. I find myself compelled to 'just get this next thing done', which usually means I go to bed later than I really should.
For me, this is a really good sign of a really engaging, fun game.
