Gardenscapes review


Published & copyrighted by Playrix

Escape into a world of puzzling fun and gardening mastery with Gardenscapes — the renowned first title from Playrix's Scapes™ series. Whoever said you couldn't harness your inner gardener while basking in the comfort of your living room surely hadn't encountered this game.

The Gameplay: Puzzlingly Perfect

Gardenscapes uses the familiar and much-loved match-3 game formula, perfectly intertwining it with a home restoration narrative that keeps the players hooked. The brain-teasing puzzles become your golden ticket to gradually unveiling the splendor that lay hidden in a once-vibrant but now dilapidated garden. As the game progresses, the stakes become higher, and the puzzles intriguingly harder.

Casting & Plot: Beloved Butler & Secret Garden

Meet Austin, your ever-dedicated butler who not only serves in maintaining your manor but also accompanies you in your gaming journey. Austin's assistance is perfectly timed, making the game more engaging and lively. The garden that you work diligently to restore is not just an ordinary patch of land – it's a treasure chest of secrets waiting to be unearthed, keeping you on the edge of your seat throughout.

Visuals: A Treat to the Eyes

This game offers far more than just puzzles and a captivating storyline. The aesthetics of Gardenscapes are nothing less than a visual feast. The precise detail of foliage, the lush greenery, and the vibrant colors suck you straight into the virtual gardening world. The transformation of a shabby garden into an exotic display of flora is as rewarding as getting past the levels.

Tailoring Your Dream Garden: Flexibility At Its Best

Another delightful aspect of this game is how it gives you the freedom to personalize your garden. Your journey involves decorating and restoring various parts of the garden, making the end product a reflection of your choices and style. It's a garden built not just by ticking off levels but by your creativity and without following a rigid template.

Conclusion: A Blossoming Experience

The game keeps you invested through its perfect combination of an engaging match-3 system, vibrant graphics, and a storyline filled with mystery. However, like most puzzle-based games, players may find progress slow without in-app purchases and a steep rise in difficulty later on. Regardless, it's an intriguing journey that lets everyone have a taste of gardening and the sense of accomplishment that comes with it.
