The Timebuilders: Caveman's Prophecy: General Information

Our Timebuilders: Caveman's Prophecy Walkthrough will step you through this exciting time management game. Included in this Timebuilders Walkthrough is step-by-step instructions and screenshots to help you get by even the most challenging levels.

The Timebuilders-Caveman's Prophecy is a time management game with an interesting twist.  Set in prehistoric time, you'll be collecting steaks instead of gold and stones to make a variety of buildings.  You will be harvesting giant eggs, bribing man-eating plants "Bigjaws", opening "Gotchas", and fending off crocodiles.  The goal for each level is to finish in time to obtain a Flystone; each one will add a building to your village.

Oftentimes when you play a game such as this, you will find that you just can't finish the level in the time allotted for an expert 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. Caveman's Prophecy has something different in this game and that is the ability and necessity to purchase different mounts. 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.
  • 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 unobstructed obstacles to see their cost before starting; just don't click on any houses that have steaks to collect or you will start the timer. 
  • Wait before starting until all available buildings have steaks available and always start with collecting the steaks first. 
  • The market is a very important component in this game. You can make a lot of money selling your rocks. The market gives you way more money for your rocks than the pickarock (quarry) charges in every instance. The more stone you have on hand, the larger amounts of steaks you will be offered. 
  • At  1000 stone, you will consistently be offered 4000 steaks for 1000 stone. 
  • In some levels, you will not want to take the maximum amount being offered because while you will get few steaks in total, you will also use less rocks to do so.
  • Trading at the port is an interesting new twist. These are usually pretty good deals. Frequently you will be able to trade for eggs in addition to steaks, rocks, and mounts.
  • Building strategies for housing include:
    • Immediately upgrade after completing a building as you will have time before the first batch of steaks is ready
    • Upgrade immediately after collecting steaks
  • The pickarock is the name for the quarry in this game.  You will be able to buy more rock with the more expensive mounts.
  • Always purchase the maximum amount of stone available
