Gardening Mama

Video Game Generation
9 August 2009
  • Summary: The more things change, the more they stay the same. Gardening Mama represents both a pleasant change and cozy familiarity for fans of the Cooking Mama series. While the format and gameplay is the same, there’s enough variation between the two to make this one interesting in its own right.
  • Pros: If you enjoyed, Cooking Mama, , this is right up your alley., Character design and extremely broken English are both endearing and too cute for words.
  • Cons: Lots of repetition – the same steps/mini-games pop up over and over as you raise different types of plants., Very poor, abstract instructions make some games far harder than they should be by any rational standard.

  • Conclusion: Just like Cooking Mama saw players engaging in different stages of a recipe, Gardening Mama breaks the plant growing process up into small bite-size chunks of game play. The simple mini-games can be played by wannabe gardeners of all ages, as they grow increasingly more colourful and rare flowers.
