When Tom’s parents send him to his grandpa Joe’s farm, he thought it would be backbreaking labor with no computer to play on. Little did he know that Joe’s farm is in debt and it’s up to both you and Tom to save him.
The plot of this is quite simple. The town wants to build a mall and they’re using Joe’s farm as a space for their parking lot. You’d think it was one of those small towns don’t want big city malls destroying their pleasant atmosphere despite how it would help the economy plots. Instead, the town settles on a compromise that they get to later in the game.
The game play is your basic buy decorations for the farm. In order to get the money, you need to take part in a match 3 game. Sometimes, citizens will write letters to you or call you for special orders. During the game, you can read newspaper articles in order to further explore the story.
This game is addictive and beautiful. I give it 7 out of 10; typical Gardenscapes game with a twist.
