  • patience yes, skill yes; program no

    By waitful calm
    patience, yes; skill, yes; however, there are some levels that there isn’t any way to win except by how the game is programmed. At one level there is no way to break the chain on the lemonade except by a well placed bomb. There is no skill involved in getting those bombs and no skill involved in where to place them. It all depends on the game program. I’m going to dump out -- three weeks on one level — wasted time. two weeks on the next level — no more fun. I would purchase some items, but it would be a waste of money. I had saved up and used everything I could put into these levels and they were just wasted — no progress. I completed levels very fast and worked at it. Delete time.
  • hard to succeed without spending money

    So sad to see Gardenscapes become a game that requires you to purchase coins in order to succeed. I love match games, but this is so difficult because you only have a limited number of moves. I believe I have had a timed game a couple times, and I do great at those. But the current level I am on, I have played the game at least 20 times and still cannot get past it. It requires boosters, and those cost money. Unhappy am I. Though the graphics are good and the garden scenes are fun.
  • Not really about designing gardens

    By Tinypadfoot27
    I thought I would be designing gardens for this game but you’re stuck with playing the matching games which they make very difficult so you have to pay actual money so you can buy the boosters and defeat the levels. Then after you do, all you ever get are BS stuff that don’t even involve the garden. I’m very disapponted in this game!

    Fun for the most part; takes forrrevverrr to get to the next level, have to spend a lot of coins getting there and the reward is poor! 50 coins for most levels and 100 for the really impossible levels.
  • Frustration is not fun

    By Needs some stability
    Like many other reviews I’ve seen, main problem is game gets too difficult, especially the timed levels. Additionally, the daily “spin the wheel for a reward” is way too stingy; most of the time the “reward” is essentially irrelevant. Lots of potential, but lighten up to keep it fun rather than frustrating.
  • Fun game!

    By Noelle E
    Lots of fun, the graphics are great and the levels have good variety. Some tasks require too many stars and some levels are very difficult to pass. It would be a good feature to have a side bar with the bombs or dynamite available to use during a level instead of having to select it at the beginning.
  • So sad….

    By grumpy unhapy player
    Art work excellent. I have a love hate relationship with this game! Eager to see each garden take shape. Frustrated with the stingy rewards for how hard it is to “earn enough stars” to accomplish each goal. The game sets you up to fail repeatedly. Sometimes 20 times on each level before a combination appears that can be won. I like a challenging game but I don’t like being set up for failure! Don’t waste your money on power ups, they are not a guarantee that you can get to the next level. I saved up my power ups, to test them and see if they really made a difference on the hardest levels. They did not. You have no control over how they will be used in the game so they are often wasted because they are in the wrong place at the wrong time to do any good in beating that level. If your goal it to test your tenacity… this is the game for you. If you need to reduce stress… play some other game. I read the other reviews. Believe them. They have legetimate input on how this game could be inproved. I am on level 883.. complete 4 1/2 gardens… stuck on on level 883 been playing repeatedly for 2 days and still not a winning combination showing up in spite of powers. Apparently I have tenacity. Would appreciate some mercy from the creators of this game! It is just too difficult to be consistently enjoyable.

    It is impossible to beat certain levels without spending money for tools. And when you finally DO beat the level, your “reward” is meager. The Five Lives thing is a BIG DISAPPOINTMENT because if you can’t get what are increasingly hard puzzles after five tries, you have to wait to play again or pay cash to try again. At some point, there’s no way to win w/out buying (spending real money) upgraded tools to help you. It has nice music. The story is a little silly. I’d like to see MORE TRIES and LESS B.S. please. I feel used.
  • Interesting…

    It an intersting game to play.
  • Lovely game, but...

    By GummiWorm09
    I adore this game in the most unexpected way. I don’t generally enjoy match-3 puzzles but wanted a casual game I can play on my Macbook. I love the puzzles and have personal favorites - timed puzzles, the honey pots, the ivy - but the best aspect of the game is by far putting together your garden. The gameplay is great and the “social” aspect of the characters adds a cute dimension. However, the game is self-defeating. From what I can tell, there are hundreds and hundreds of levels. The garden is certainly massive. Each task to develop the garden often requires 2 to 3 stars. It takes at least a couple of days to complete a garden area and each day requires anywhere from ten to thirty stars total (so far, in my experience). There is plenty to do. It would take anyone a huge amount of time to catch up with the developers (unless you’ve been playing from its release, perhaps). I say it’s self-defeating because the purpose of these games (for most players and especially myself) is to relax. I play for leisure. I don’t get the opportunity to play throughout the day so I come home from school or work and look forward to sitting down with it. But you’re limited to five lives, which generate once every 30 minutes. I run through my five lives in less than ten minutes and I’m done. I can’t play for another few hours, at which point I’m in bed. I want the freedom to play this game as long as I like in the evening but the only option for getting more lives is via Facebook. None of my friends are able or willing to play this game, and I don’t want to add a bunch of strangers to my Facebook account just for a few extra plays. It’s absurd, for the mechanics of the game to rely so heavily on a social media account that you may or may not have. I suggest generating lives more quickly or adding more ways to get lives (which currently stands at competition rewards like the orangery or firework festival, the once-a-day spin game, and starting a new day - all of which are extremely limited). This is especially frustrating when I’m stuck on a level or really looking to unwind for more than a few minutes. Give the game a go. It’s delightful to play. There are no advertisements and the developers offer ample side competitions or mini-games that are fun, expand your gameplay, and provide really nice bonuses. I’ve yet to run out of power-ups. However, know that you will not get to play this game often or to the extent you want, especially if you have a life. It’s very limited in that regard and so frustrating that I’ve been tempted to delete it altogether.
