Just a couple things

I enjoy this game and I think the premise is great. The style is cute, and it fulfills the promise of satisfaction. I think it would be fun to add a feature where you can collect items like flower seeds and fence blueprints to cultivate a property that you own, maybe even mow your own lawn once a day to get items. There are just a few things that irritate me: 1) The mute button on the ads does not work until the skip button appears, meaning I have to listen to the first 3-5 seconds of every ad. 2) The animation meant to highlight the last few blades of grass you may have missed is rough on the eyes, and largely unnecessary. I wish it was optional, or at least delayed another couple of seconds. 3) The birds move so quickly that I often miss them, and my mowing path goes awry as a result. It's distracting, instead of interesting. 4) This one doesn't bother me as much, but the limit on toolboxes discourages me from continuing to play, and then I forget to come back for days at a time. A toolbox that takes 24 hours to unlock doesn't seem like a great business model, especially since the epic parts don't offer much difference from any others. Faster, cheaper toolboxes would be much more motivating, and generate momentum for both gameplay and gem-spending.

Fun and relaxing, but can be frustrating

I’ve been playing this game for about 1.5 months now. I’d like to see more variety in lawns, the current options are pretty limited. Things like baseball diamonds, new park ideas, even simple cosmetic changes would help keep me excited for the next street.

My main issues are the ads and toolboxes. There’s a 30 second ad after each lawn (sometimes I get 2 lawns before another ad) which gets pretty frustrating as each lawn takes about a minute to complete. I get that you have to make money but that seems a bit greedy. As for the toolboxes, I’m just a bit disappointed with the “random” aspect. You spend hours opening a box only to get a part you already have, which I understand from a business standpoint. But out of the 8 epic cases I’ve unlocked 3 have been new items and 5 have been repeats of those items. They take a day each to unlock. I’m at the point now where I get a feeling of dread now when I get an epic case, because I know I’m gonna spend a day opening it and it’s probably gonna be a duplicate and I’m probably wasting my time but I still gotta do it. I may get a new item every couple days and the rest are duplicates.

TLDR; overall a decent little time waster game but the constant ads, limited variety, high costs to remove ads and buy toolboxes, and endless duplicate parts are why I uninstalled.

Chilled Out and Zen

It makes me want to get out my John Deere mower and cruise around the yard. I wish there was a perk included when removing ads that also reduced Tool Chest opening time, it’s pretty long. At the very least, we should be allowed to see what chest we will be getting so we can decide whether to keep the new chest or not. It takes away some of the zen when you keep getting the message that you don’t have an available slot. Gem acquisition is pretty slow, though existent! It would cost a fortune to open every chest at the end of each street, and I would like to save a slot just for Lightning Chests so I don’t miss them. 5* if we can get a preview of the chest we don’t have room for so we can decide which one to keep. For example, I’d be much more inclined to spend more money if I have all Rare and Legendary Tool Boxes staring at me rather than regular chests that take 3 hours open. Let us delete chests to make room for more desirable chests. I love this game and want to do more than play in short bursts! Please work on the Tool Chest system and make it more streamlined to match the total Zen of the rest of the game. Awesome game for chilling out!
