Gah... stupid game.

I lasted six minutes into the demo - when I failed the second level I knew it wasn't a game I would enjoy. How on earth does someone fail a TUTORIAL????

Deleted immediately.

That's all that has been coming out here lately is stupid games. That's why I go to other sites. That's why I bought another game on Iwin. A nice HO at that.

tried it for about 15 minutes, but all I seemed to have to do was keep watering the trees and couldn´t do it fast enough, they kept dying on me, so deleted it.

I also played it for about 15 mins, but just couldn't see the point in it. A bit boring for me, watering and planting, and not getting anywhere.

It's labeled "action adventure". I know better than to download those because they all end up "do it as fast as possible". however, it IS nice to see a variety in the types of games. Even an HO addict (me) noticed that for a while the only games that were showing up were HO.

After 10 minutes of planting and watering, I deleted the game. I didn't see the point of the game.

In the rubbish bin. . . .

What?
Did not even get that far. !!
Played it at least 2 months ago via iWin. Did not finish the demo than either.

It's about seeds from trees, mix and grow them.
All complicated latin names.
Big bore.

I played the whole hour. I think it's supposed to be a different take of the game plant tycoon, except plant tycoon was more fun. I don't think the purpose of this game is to ultimately find every tree combination necessarily, just the 5-star ones. Might be more fun if the trees didn't constantly need attention to prevent them from dying.

Well Fishes I am glad I read this, I was thinking of downloading, needed a cheerup but it looks like that will not help.

just have to hang in or go back and finish the hard ones, or I might try and find some roots.

Let's see, I lasted about ten minutes into this game, according to the timer on my game manager. After failing the first level after the tutorial five times!!! No wonder you never see these games go to the beta tester's before they are released. As I have stated many, many, many, many, many, many times across the internet in many, many, many, many, many, many, many, amny, namy, forums If a game is not sadistic enough to keep you playing it's not worth playing at all! By sadistic I mean, 1. Giving you the resources to complete more than one round. 2. Making the game absorbing so you want to continue to play it, the music in this game almost put me to sleep which may be why I never completed the first round, and I was on cup 7 out of 8 cups of coffee. 3. Timers that run too fast are tantamount to failure for even the most advanced gamer, read number one above. 4. Do NOT assume that just because everyone at the office can finish a game before you release it anyone else will even be able to play it, remember the people in the office have been living this game for months or longer.

This would have been a nice distraction from work, if it wasn't for the time limit. As it stands though, it's not something I will ever play again.

I didn't last five minutes. Garbage game.

Thanks for the warning!! I have had a game pass since the 5th and the rate BFG is crankin out games I won't spend it til the 5th of next month. Alot of them won't download in the first place, or play if they do. I have turned to other clubs, Playfirst for example for relief. I am a total Chocolatire fan & the new one is a refreshing relief from Crap games. Dangerous School Girls? or whatever.,. you get my drift. OOH, a pond word!! I probably can't share the name but here goes. Decadence by Design. I hoped it would come out here, so I wouldn't have to shell out 10 clams. But it was sooo...worth it. The pond used to be the best!! I would rather pay more to play better games. Come on fishies, play all the demos you want but lets just buy the Quality games.

I also think that this game is very poor.

I tried the demo and cannot see the point of a game that puts you off even before the demo is half way through. Especially when this is the sort of game that I usually love!

Sorry BFG but this game is a No No No.

Despite all the warnings I tried this game. Brother, what a waste of 5 minutes. I agree with the majority -- don't waste your time on this one. The trees soak up water at an alarming rate and you can't get anything else accomplished. Back to the drawing board for the developers.
