Great time mgmt; just a bit short.
Fabulous game with small but useful improvements on the common time management game. I love the action queue. Easy mode switching is nice.
Planning out a garden and keeping things in shape is fun and looks great. Some of the flowers are really pretty; I can't remember being impressed by the graphics in this genre before.
As with other reviewers, I am a big fan of Ranch Rush - both 1 and 2. This is very similar in core gameplay - and better in some regards. I found RR2's machines more interesting, but that's just personal preference. The only downside I see here is the short story mode - maybe 10 hrs total for 8 levels. Still, it's a good deal while on sale.
Great Game -- We Want More
When I bought this app, I was expecting yet again a "racing against the clock" game like Ranch Rush, but it's much more creative than that. You can play against the clock if you want to, but you can choose not to. Fiona doesn't care how fast you create your garden or sell your products. Several of my friends agree with me that this is a game that has some elements of the Sims game in it.
I'd like to see the developer create a follow up "Fiona's Garden" in which you could grow herbs, too, and have a potpourri machine and a scented candle machine and a fruit rollup machine and... Come on guys, you develop it and we'll buy it!
I have been waiting for this app for some time. If you like time management games this one is for you! It's refreshing to see flowers grow and such. It sure does keep you busy!
Grow flowers, sell them, water them, lay fresh dirt down, spray for bugs, weed your garden and lots of other things to do. Nice colors, great graphics and nice music to. I can't say more about this game them buy it you won't be sorry if you like these types of games!
Hi-Five to the dev that made it! Thanks!
