COTTAGE GARDEN - a colorful sea of flowers, framed by walls, paths, and hedges. As ambitious gardeners, you face the challenge of filling the beds in every corner of your garden with plants, inspired by the limitations of space to create ever new compositions. You will use a variety of plants — as well as flowerpots and garden cloches — to design gardens that bloom with diversity. Be kind to the helpful cats!
Goal of the Game - In Cottage Garden, you compete in the art of gardening. Plant two Flowerbeds with different flowers. Score each Flowerbed when there are no more free spaces visible on it, then exchange it for a new, unplanted one. You receive points for all visible Flower Pots and Garden Cloches on the completed Flowerbed, and you may also receive Flower Pots and Cats that will help you with your gardening.
The player with the most points at the end of the game is the winner.

Ratings and Reviews
Mostly enjoyable, but a few flaws.
As a huge fan of Patchwork, I was excited when this game came out. For the most part I love it, but I wish online play weren’t so tedious. I am constantly having to restart the app because of network connection problems. I also find it takes too long to complete a game, sometimes several days. An option to play against 1 person instead of 2 would be nice. I know there is a quick game option, but whenever I’ve tried that, there’s never been anyone available to play. Because of the slow online play, I prefer playing against the AI. I don’t see much difference between the medium and the hard AI. I usually play with one easy and one medium so I have half a chance of winning, but the easy character’s moves are so obviously bad, what was once laughable has become annoying.
Computer cheats and no saved states
A good start it would be nice if it had the ability to resume games in progress. If the app closes or you can complete a whole game in one sitting you are out of luck and have to start all over again.
Developer Response ,
Hi, all games are saved all the time - you can find them in the running games list in the main menu. The AI does not cheat - that is plain impossible in an open information game. Cheers.
A surprising challenge
I was looking for a “different”sort of game when I stumbled on Flower Garden. I tried it and once I understood the rules, it became a daily challenge for me. Definitely a departure from match three and other typical game genres, and there is something about it that draws me in. At first, the rules seemed a bit cumbersome, but once I played a few games against the AI challengers, I got the hang of it. As typical, the AI games are stacked against you, but they offer a good way to practice strategic thinking and planning. The graphics are appealing and this game offers a nice daily game experience. Perhaps the developers might consider introducing alternative ‘mini-games’ to keep us interested and challenged.
