this game would be PERFECT, but....
I love the dash games I am a huge supporter of them and I love playing them. and I would give this game 5 stars if I could actually play level 11 without it crashing so I havent been able to go past level 10 which is a huge bummer. PLEASE DO A BUG FIX UPDATE!!!!!
crashes a lot, not enough time
I play a lot of time management games and am disappointed by this offering from PlayFirst. I expect higher standards from them. This game crashes a lot and so you constantly have to restart the game. The worst is that they do not give you enough time to complete the tasks - there is simply too much to do - especially if they are requiring roses, eggplant, oranges, tomatoes, AND the green plant. You can't stop the ants, put scarves on the oranges, get music to the roses, water the green plants twice, trim, etc before the time runs out and this is all within the first 10 levels. They will not allow you to put multi-automated upgrades together (one auto-robot per pot) and even with the green leaves, time just runs out. It's very frustrating.
Finished all levels of this game within 24 hours FUN, Easy, and Addicting. I did not have any problems with the application at all.
A Really Good Time!
This game was a lot of fun and is very addicting as another reviewer expressed, once you start playing it's hard to stop. I had no trouble finishing the levels within the time allotted as another reviewer expressed trouble doing. The key is to chain as many tasks as possible: water all plants at the same time, prune all plants at the same time, etc. Chaining helped me achieve an "expert" rating in almost every level. There are two difficulty levels of to choose from: Green Gardener & Harvester. Harvester is not available until you've completed all the levels in a given stage. Several upgrades are available to help you throughout the game, I found the auto-harvester (the robot hands) to be the most useful. Periodically, as well, you'll be given new pots to add to your growing area. Keep in mind that the larger pot the longer the soil takes to aerate resulting in a longer or shorter wait to plant seeds. The last stage of the game is the most challenging with plants losing their happiness very quickly and attacks from bugs laying waste to your plants very quickly in comparison to other levels. I found that the layout of your pots in this stage, especially in level 50 is key to passing this stage. Overall, lots of fun. I only wish the game had more levels.
I just bought this game today and it constantly crashes. Not worth it.
