Make Money to Restore a Garden!
Tired of your city life, you're all too happy to take up your late grandfather's butler's offer when he asks you to fix up the mansion's dilapidated garden.
The problem is that you're broke. Can you make enough money from the random items in the mansion to transform the garden into a paradise and win the city gardening club's contest for the most beautiful garden?
Exciting Hidden Object Challenges
In this fast-paced hidden object game, hurry to find objects in the mansion requested by customers. The faster you find the objects in the mansion's cluttered rooms, the better the customers will pay you. Once you gain popularity, you'll attract customers that want groups of items, like the library asking for 20 books.
Find hints in each scene like a thermometer that indicates if you're close to an item or a camera that flashes briefly and shows the items you have left to find. Once you make some money you can buy new decorations for your garden, like romantic benches, a dog kennel and a fish pond.
Charming and Memorable
This game does a great job of making hidden object gameplay exciting as you hurry to meet the demands of the customers. The graphics and characters are charming and quickly draw you in so you won't want to stop playing until you restore the garden. Enjoy hours of fast-paced fun in timed or relaxed mode and replay it for another challenge.
For a memorable and enjoyable adventure play Gardenscapes now!
- Review by Sara
Gardenscapes is a gem among hidden objects games with its interactive graphics and long hours of re-playability.
Modes to Fit Your Style
The game includes both relaxed and timed modes so you can play how you want. Timed mode includes time bonuses for promptly locating items which increases the game pace and provides an extra challenge for the more active player.
Putting Up With the Narration Pays Off
The game also features unique graphics that react to cursor movement like highlighting missing objects with orbs of light or objects that make sounds when you interact with them. The guided narration in the game can become trivial and annoying at times but also offers helpful hints that can increase the money you can earn to renovate your garden.
Conclusion - An Excellent Hidden Object Game
Offering unique bonuses and a garden improvement theme, Gardenscapes is a fun game that offers a fresh twist to the hidden object genre.
