Whoa, I got it after seeing this and for the past 40 minutes or so I am glued to it!

Played way over 2 hours now, still fun!

The game itself is totally different, but somehow it reminds me of Tiny Tower.

Also the timers remind me of TT. Some fast, some slow, so you'll always have something to do.
Did not need any Premium-Diamonds so far.
