What I love most about this app is the fact that it is essentially the entire Gardening Mama game in app format, leaving none of the essential gameplay out while utilizing the iphones unique touchscreen.
The only problems one might encounter are the load times between actvities. Some of the mini-games require you to switch between lengthwise and widethwise, and even if you do so it still tells you to turn it, adding unecessary time between things. The extreame amount of rating slows one down too, as the individual activity along with the entire group are graded.
Having to consistantly check wilting plants may bother some but I feel as if it adds to the concept of a real garden, although it can get bothersome having to check plants or have your plants die, especially if you want to plant new plants.
Perfect for iPhone
I adore the cute graphics and varied game play. I'm an adult, and I find it challenging enough to hold my interests. There are a couple of mini games on a few flowers I can't seem to master (sunflowers and cosmos come to mind), but I'm not frustrated. The bug spraying does get old, but making water rainbows just makes me smile. I wish there was a way to turn off the voiceover.
I've been really enjoying this game, but for some reason it has stopped giving me bonuses when I finish a task in under half the given time. I'm not sure why this is happening. Some tasks could also use better explaining. Other than that, it's a fun little game!
