Introduction

Gardenscapes is a match 3 game where the player needs to clear away the junk and rebuild the house. The game is set in the backyard of a mansion which the player must restore by removing all the old junk. In order to do this, the player must match at least three or more of the same items.

Gardenscapes is a casual game developed by Playrix. The player starts with a dilapidated garden, and as they play, they get to revitalize and decorate the garden. The player has to complete different tasks, such as leveling the ground and removing rocks, in order to plant various flowers, trees, and other plants.

Gameplay

The player needs to match the junk in order to remove it from the screen. The player can also water the flowers when they have been cleared to get them growing. The player has a limited number of spaces in which to play in, which means that he must strategically manage his time to avoid running out. There is a timer at the top of the screen which is constantly running and shows how much time is left.

This game is a casual game in which the player can play in Adventure, timed, or free mode. The player can also choose to start from the beginning or from where they left off. In the Adventure mode, the player has to complete different tasks, such as leveling the ground and removing rocks, in order to plant various flowers, trees, and other plants. There are also tools to use, such as the hedge trimmer and the water hose. In the timed mode, the player is given a set time to finish a level. In the free mode, the player is given unlimited time to finish a level.

Graphics

The game has very bright and colorful graphics. The game is played from a top-down perspective so the graphics are in three-dimensional. The player can zoom in and out to any desired level.

The graphics in this game are fairly basic. The player just has to click on the screen to level the ground, for example, the hedge trimmer and the water hose.

Controls

The player can play the game as he chooses. By dragging the cursor to the left or right, the player can move around the screen. The player can also zoom in and out by the same method. The player can also tap a space on the screen to open up a menu where they can change the level of difficulty, number of moves, and time limit for each level.

The controls are fairly simple, as they just involve clicking on the screen to level the ground, for example.

Replayability

The game is replayable because there are many levels to complete. In order to open up more levels, the player must complete the objectives for the previous levels. The game is fairly easy to play and does not require any real skill, so this game is not very replayable.

Conclusion

This game is very fun and addicting. The puzzles are clever and the game is easy to play. I can see myself playing this game for hours and hours and not getting bored. This game is fairly easy to play, but it is not very replayable.

Pros:
  • Gives a sense of accomplishment
  • Rewarding
  • Relaxing.
Cons:
  • Gets boring and repetitive.
