Plant Tycoon®

By Last Day of Work

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Plant Tycoon® is a gardening sim game where you nurture plants and experiment with increasingly rare and valuable species. The object is to breed and cross breed plants until you find the 6 Magic Plants of Isola and solve the genetic puzzle. You start with limited cash, a handful of seeds, some soil and water. Grow plants, organize and harvest seeds, monitor your plants' health, age and maturity, and protect your plants from dehydration and infestations. Sell some of your creations to fund your research, buy better supplies to use in your Nursery, and purchase ornaments to customize your virtual garden. This is the same best-selling Mac and Windows game, now in a universal app for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, so you can take your greenhouse full of plants with you wherever you go!

Customer Reviews

In app purchases ruined the game

It is bad enough that you have to buy games twice - for PC and for IPad. But for this game, you can earn all the dollars you want, you still have to buy plant bucks for certain upgrades...really to complete the game. And they are expensive. What a ripoff!!! Even worse, I played the game through once, spent about $20 on upgrades and am trying to play it again...the upgrades are all gone. You'll note the positive reviews are for people who play it on PC, where there are no up sells, or are writing about playing to years ago. Yes, I used to love the game on PC.

UPDATEI heard from the web developer for IPad about the outrageous greed of,requiring upgrades just to play through the game...upgrades which must be repurchased every time you play the game. Received back an arrogant email that I could get all the seeds without upgrades. I KNOW that!. But you can not buy seed boxes, many supplies, many nursery upgrades just by breeding and selling plants as you did on the PC Game. You have to purchase plant bucks via In app,purchase. A total rip off. You NEED seed boxes to have room to breed plants. I want MY money back after winingn the game all my in app purchase have vanished AND I want my in app purchases refunded.

Plant Bucks

Edit: After some serious gameplay, I discovered that the higher selling plants barely reach maturity when they die, if they do. So, Like countless others, they try to make you buy. But note- Technically, you only have to spend a dollar mostly in what I have come across, but no one is gonna waste a dollar. Put up ad banners, or higher the price for plant buck stuff and make a video thing, but seriously, what a waste of time if you can't complete it without spending anything.

Original review:
This game would've been a lot more popular, if it wasn't for the fact there was plant bucks. It's not necessarily plant bucks in general, but the fact you have to buy them. The game would've been a lot better if, let's say you could trade 500 coins for 1 singular plant buck. That way the game isn't extremely hard to win without spending money.

Awesome and creative!

Love this game! Never knew a plant tycoon existed, and this is more than I expected. You can tell the developers care a lot about it. The art is nice, gameplay is simple but also relaxing and it's very convenient to have the option to change the timer because I don't spend a lot of time on these games. I do wish the supplies weren't so expensive, but I don't feel obligated to buy them. I highly recommend this game if you want to just do some planting in a relatively slowish and relaxing setting, but if you're looking for something fast-paced and you're impatient, this isn't the game for you.
