Ratings and Reviews
I’ve been playing this game for over a year, maybe even two, and i love it. I wanted to write a review to be clear that the game is not impossible without spending money, not even close. I’m on level 1300 or so and have never spent a dime. You do have to be prepared to be patient and play some levels many times until you win. I guess if you’re looking for it to be really easy and to just soar through the levels, this game might not be for you, but i love that it’s realistically challenging. Most importantly, in my opinion, is this is a free game WITHOUT ads!! I’m not sure how they manage to put out a game this engaging and fun without ads, but maybe they could teach other companies... You do need power ups once in a while, BUT, you can easily get them for free by playing the optional challenges they give you, and by logging in each day to collect your free daily prize.
My suggestion to developers, if you read this, is to fix up the rockets. They explode things that make no sense, like pieces that have already disappeared, or prioritizing dropping lemonade glasses rather than things that make way more sense. Also, if someone uses a power up on a level, it would be nice if it didn’t enter by interfering with other matches that are pre-setup for that round.
Addictive but mean
Okay, this game is definitely not what the ad was for, but it is a great distraction and is really addictive. At first, I was annoyed at the silly butler and all the time it took to make the garden features, but then I kind of got used to it, and I looked forward to new areas. It was annoying, though, when the games got tough, and I had to spend stars on silly things I did not think were needed. Then the games got really tough after 480, and I ended up buying some coins to get through it, but it stayed tough, and the tasks started costing more and more stars. You have no choice—I don’t want to invest in more bushes here or send everything to the lab, and you are forced into silly side projects that you cannot advance without. The lake is really frustrating because you start it then have to go back to other areas before you can make any progress. Then, after some really tough levels, you spend stars to get AUSTIN to get into the diving suit, and then it turns night, and you don’t return to that plot for at least another dozen stars. It is becoming more frustrating than fun. IMHO, It needs an hourly lucky spin for more moves at the end of a game or at least some options so you don’t have to do some of the useless tasks. (Eg, will you spend 1 Star to try a wind-powered scare-mole or 3 to get a sonic mole deterent; would you like to add the topiaries? Will you use the experimental fertilizer or go organic?)
Fun but annoying
This game is definitely addicting and can be fun, but also very frustrating at times. As others have mentioned the levels get progressively harder as you go on. You can end up wasting lots of power ups and coins trying to beat a level and still lose. Also the rewards stay pretty much the same so you’re basically always getting diminishing returns as you play.
But by far the most annoying thing for me is the multi-step process needed to restart a level when you lose or decide to quit. Whenever there is any kind of challenge active where you have to collect things or earn rewards, there is always a pop up where Austin asks if you are ABSOLUTELY SURE you want to lose your rewards/collected items from that level, trying to get you to use your coins and continue. Yes Austin, I am 100% sure I would rather give up these 15 apples I matched than waste my coins on 5 more useless moves that will bring me no where close to winning the level.
Of course there is no option to disable these popups, probably because they are just a poorly disguised attempt to get people to spend money on coins. This used to be less of a problem because there weren’t always challenges going on so usually there would be no popup. Now the challenges are constant, and I have to mash the end level button multiple times to blow through Austin’s unhelpful advice every single time I lose or quit.
