Ratings and Reviews
Good, but not great.
I enjoy playing this game when I just want to veg out, but it could be improved. The graphics are quite good and the character banter is fun. I also like the novelty of the “newsfeed”/Austin’s social media and especially the little bios for all of the other characters on Austin’s friend list. Like others have stated, the timed levels are annoying. You have no control over the drop, and if anyone walks into the room or there is any distraction in real life, poof, one life wasted, because I’m not going to ignore a human or my dog or whatever to try to beat a game level. Also, fairly quickly, the game progression really slows. By the third section of the garden — having the mason come fix the fountain — every task requires multiple stars, but there is no way to earn multiple stars in one go. Every level is just one star. Seems to me if some levels are going to be intentionally hard, or very hard, beating them should earn more stars. I’ll keep playing for now, but I imagine in the not too distant future, the game progression will become so slow, I’ll get bored and move on to something new. Also, it won’t let me sync my game on my laptop (MacBook) and my iPhone even though I connected both to Facebook. So that’s another annoyance.
I like a little competition, but seriously...
I’m totally in to this game. I like the challenge, and even the near impossibility of getting past certain levels. I think the storyline(s) are quite creative as new garden areas are unlocked. Seeing as how I’m a bot of competitive person by nature, I even like the tournaments. However, even as competitive as I am, I don’t want to be forced into having my score go toward either Fireworks or Rainbow Blast/Electric Show tournaments. Hence I rated this game “3 Stars” - the average of “1 Star” for being forced into constant tournament play, and “5 Stars” for everything else. I’m at such a level of frustration with the game, because every day is tournament day! I mean, seriously; no sooner does one end, then the next one starts. I really wish participation in the tournaments were optional (like doing the dog training). Many times I just want to play a few rounds - especially if I’m just goofing around waiting on something/someone. I can’t do that without having the pressure to participate in some tournament and maintain my league level. So now, I mostly just collect my daily spin, watch videos, and collect coins, power-ups, or extra lives. PLEASE Playrix team, do something about the constant “mandatory” participation in tournaments. I like a little completion, but seriously...
Can be quite annoying at times
This is a nice puzzle game if you just remain calm and don’t expect to make fast progress. My biggest issue with it is that they drop timed levels in every few levels. I play puzzle games to relax. Timed levels are frustrating and annoying. It would be nice if you could opt-out of those levels. Others have mentioned that it takes a lot of stars (you get one star for each level you complete) to progress through the game. This is very true. It’s a very, VERY slow game. I was also playing Fishdom and it is set up very much the same way with the timed levels. I deleted that game. I just don’t want to deal with those darned timed levels. Gardenscape is a bit more interesting than Fishdom. Austin is a funny character and there are other friends and neighbors that he interacts with occasionally so it’s a little easier to put up with the slow pace. Gardenscapes is what it is, a slow, at times very annoying, somewhat cute puzzle game.
