Game Description: Create the perfect garden! Comb the rooms of a gorgeous mansion for hidden items and restore a once stunning garden to its former glory. Choose from a variety of garden accessories to customize the garden to your taste. No worries if you are a garden design novice - an amusing and witty butler, Austin, will always be of assistance. Become an outdoor d├ęcor pro in this cutting hedge game!

How to Play GardenScapes: I am just going to go over some of the basic things you need to know to get you started. You will have fun figuring out the rest on your own! (There will be some surprises along the way. I haven't figured all of them out yet myself). There is also an animated butler, named Austin, who will help you along the way.

  • You begin the game with $750. This is enough money to buy your first garden accessory. You may buy either the White Picket Fence for $550, or the Wrought Iron Fence for $650. (You may also save your $750 for something else later).
  • To earn more money to buy garden accessories, click the 'Start' button in the lower right corner of the game screen. This allows you to play your first hidden object game where you can earn more money for your garden.
  • The hidden objects you can find will be listed on the left side of the game screen.
  • Each hidden object has a dollar amount that you can earn.
  • When you click on a hidden object, the object will float to the left side of the game screen. It will then disappear and be replaced with gold coins.
  • To earn the money for your account, you must now click on the gold coins.
  • Once you click on the gold coins the money will be deposited into your account at the bottom, and a new hidden object will appear on the left side of the screen to take its place.
  • Continue clicking on hidden objects. And don't forget to click on the gold coins to deposit the money into your account.
  • Earn as much money as you can before the time runs out.
  • There are also usually a few gold coins scattered around the room itself. Always click on these coins to earn extra money.
  • Sometimes a hidden object will consist of more than one object. For example, you may be asked to find 3 phones. In that instance you must find all 3 phones to earn the gold coins.
  • When the time is up, click where it says 'Click to continue' to go back to the main garden screen. You may now buy garden accessories by buying items from the Design tab. Mouse over each item to see how much it costs.
  • Any money not spent will carry over to the next round.
  • If you don't have enough money to buy that special item you want... no problem. Remember, you can always earn more money by clicking the 'Start' button and playing the next hidden object game.
  • At certain intervals the game will ask if you would like to purchase the full version. To continue playing the free version here on Richard's Game Reviews just click the 'Continue' button and continue your game.
  • The free version of GardenScapes has 7 levels of play. There is no way to save your game progress with the free version. It will take approximately 30 minutes to complete all 7 levels.

GardenScapes Game Options:
  • You may pause the game by clicking the 'Menu' button. To continue, click 'Resume'.
  • The game sounds may be turned on or off by clicking the Sound On/Off button. You can access this button by first clicking the 'Menu' button.
  • If you would like to pause the game and just enjoy the garden view click the little eye icon located in the upper left corner of the main garden screen. To continue, click anywhere within the game screen.

GardenScapes Playing Tips:
  • The Hint button is located at the lower right corner of each room. When you click the Hint button a picture of each hidden object that you are currently looking for will appear under each text description. (Before you click the Hint button make sure that there are no undepoisted gold coins on the left side of the screen for your found objects. Because if there are, you will not get a picture hint for that square).
  • If you see something that looks like a 'question mark' click on it. This can earn you an extra hint!
  • Sometimes it can be a good idea just to click randomly. You may accidently find a hidden object, or find something even better.
  • Don't forget to search around the edges of each room. Sometimes hidden objects will be there too.

Richard's Rating: 4 out of 5.

Pro: GardenScapes is quite fun. The graphics are outstanding! If you enjoy hidden object games, you should really like this one.

Con: I have, of course, the free version of GardenScapes here on Richard's Game Reviews. The free version has only 7 levels of play. It would have been nice if the free version had a few more levels to enjoy.
