Blocker Level Occurs too Early
For some background, I've worked in the mobile gaming industry, and I've worked specifically on monetization.
I can tell you that the Blocker Level comes so early in the game, that, rather than inspire me to monetize, it inspires me to quit. There is no incentive to monetize on Level 8. It occurs so quick and without having hooked me into the game with more gameplay, I promptly uninstalled. I'm a whale when it comes to monetization, so you either get a lot of money out of me, or nothing at all.
A level redesign may be in order, but if the current strategy is working in terms of ROI, then I'm just the incorrect user targeting for this game.
The gameplay itself is easy. The UI is clean. The art style is pretty, but as an overall design, it lacks a hook to get me invested enough to want to spend anything to continue playing.
Fun yet frustrating
I really like how this game mixes a garden game with a matching game, it's super fun! My only complaint is that it takes so many stars to do certain things (with the suitcase it's 1 to get it out of the fountain, 1 to check it out, and 2 more to figure out the lock) and you only get 1 star per each match game which are sometimes very difficult.
Fun and rewarding
Building/fixing up the old garden is a nice reward to completing levels. It feels like some of the levels are almost impossible at times; but they can be done with the right pre-purchased boost or sheer luck. If you're patient and enjoy games like Candy Crush, you'll love this.
