Oftentimes when you play a game such as this, you will find that you just can't finish the level in gold time. If you try one method several times and it just doesn't work, you need to come up with something different. Start with a different building first. Work in a different direction. Pyramid Rising has something different in this game and that is the ability and necessity to purchase camels and elephants. On some levels just purchasing the animal will be enough to allow you to finish more efficiently because they allow you to work faster and carry more stone. On other levels, you will find that you actually need to have a certain animal to finish your building task.

The Walkthrough: Each level has a beginning screenshot. This screenshot will show you the goals for the level and starting state. In addition, it will show how much it costs to get past each Nomad, stone requirements for bridges,and what is in each treasure chest. You might want to take a look at the screenshot before looking at the level step-by-step instructions and try again that additional information in front of you. Use the control-F find feature in your browser to enter the specific level you are interested in to get there faster

The following are just a few hints:

Consider restarting the level and press skip all so that you can go your own way. Sometimes the tutorial gives you instructions to do something before you really need to.

Before starting a level, take a good look at what you need to do and make a plan. You can click on uobstructed obstacles to see their cost before starting; just don't click on any houses that have rent to collect or you will start the timer.

Wait before starting until all available buildings have rent available and always start with collecting rent first.

The market is a very important component in this game. You can make a lot of money selling your stone. The market gives you way more money for your stone than the quarry charges in every instance. The more stone you have on hand, the larger amounts of gold you will be offered. At around 1500 stone, you will consistently be offered 5000 gold for 500 stone. In some levels it really pays to build up your stone supply as fast as you can and keep it there to get to this high exchange amount.

Trading with the port is an interesting new twist. These are usually great deals. While you can wait for a new one if you don't want the current one, I thought it was faster to just take the deal offered quickly and then get another one. I suggest taking them unless you don't have the resources to trade with them or you are going to run short if you do so.
