Summary: Here's the good: it's a fun premise and the graphics are really great. The storyline is cute & I like the butler and dog. The not-so-good: it seems to take a long time to switch back and forth from the garden to the hidden object game back to the garden again. The weird: this is a game that seems appropriate for all ages, so why are there so many items associated with smoking in the hidden object part of the game?
Summary: This game was super amusing -- I love how the little people in the game were so polite, looking up at me and waving every so often. The story line was great and I love that after the main game was over, I can still play to buy ludicrously expensive outfits for everyone. :-) Cute little game and a lot of fun. I like that after you place an item, you can go back later and change it to a different color/ style/ plant.
Summary: Oh what a delightful game! :D I almost overlooked this one, as it has a time-management aspect that put me off, but you can play on relaxed/untimed mode, so that's what I did...and I was so enthralled I promptly bought not only all three installments in the series so far, but a few similar games. I've found a new favorite genre! Plot: You've inherited an old mansion and its spectacular garden...but alas, the garden has seen far better days.
Summary: My 4-year-old grandson loves to play this and the first Gardenscapes (although he says some of the people look mean, lol). I believe it is helping him learn to read. I do wish the game gave you the option of showing pictures or silhouettes instead of the words for items that you need to find. There's a hint that does that with the items that are showing but it doesn't last long.
Summary: This is fun - and Clean Fun at that! You sell items in the house to save $ to buy items to refurbish the garden. Very slow paced - so no panic here and no blood or terror or bad words. If you are looking for action, not your game - if you kid likes Hidden Object games and you want them to learn math - this will be great and worth the tiny cost.
