In the increasingly monotonous Time Mamanegement games landscape comes a game that breaks from the usual resource-management format once in a while. Amy’s Greenmart is a new Time Management offering from Cyber Intellect. Get to know Amy, a promising young woman who aspires to take her newly-opened eco-friendly supermarket to success.
Amy’s Greenmart takes on a Time Management format that is rarely seen in today’s casual games world, one that reminisces classic hits such as the Dash series or more comparable titles like Spooky Mall and Supermarket Mania. You take on the role of Amy as she opens her first supermarket. Your everyday tasks are essentially stocking up on eco-friendly items in the store to serve your customers and earn profits at the end of the day.
The game features four varied locations, each with 15 levels for a total of 60. Each carefully-designed level separates into three distinct areas; the stockroom, the garden, and the customer-facing store. Long-time Time Management fans will find Amy’s Greenmart to be quite familiar, yet refreshing in its own rights. New players of the genre will also find it easy to get caught up in the liveliness and the charm of the game.
On the challenge side, there is no denying that Amy’s Greenmart is a fairly hectic game. Still, the game also offers a Relaxed Mode with no timer for those who prefer a slower pace. Considering how many tasks Amy has to handle at all times, from stocking up on items to planting fruits and flowers to manning the cashier to feeding the cat, you can benefit a whole lot from choosing your upgrades wisely. Whether it be hiring helpers or increasing speed or whatnot, the game allows you to spend your profits on upgrades at the end of every level. However, do note that these upgrades are tied to a single location and cannot carry over to a new location.
Like many Time Management games, Amy’s Greenmart can get repetitive after a long session. Thankfully, the game lightens up the mood with colorful visuals, lively animations, and upbeat music. Although certain sound effects, for example, Amy’s running and mopping sounds, are very distracting, sound effects volume can be lowered separately from music volume.
