Barn Yarn (

Tom and Joe are back and this time they bought a barn. Only problem, it’s not in good condition and they need your help to fix it up.

That’s right, the characters of Farmscapes are back. There’s not much to say about the plot so I’ll just skip to the game play. It’s exactly the same as Gardenscapes. You participate in hidden object games in order to sell your junk to your neighbors. Sometimes, you’ll get letters asking you to assist only one neighbor. Keep going until you can afford decorations for the barn.

This game is incredibly addictive. I give it 8 out of 10; better than Farmscapes.

Farmscapes (

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.

Manor Memoirs (

When Scarlett gets serious writer’s block, she moves into a beautiful 19th century mansion. Only problem, the place needs a little work. Can Scarlett count on you to fix the mansion up?

The makers of Gardenscapes came up with a new fix-it-up/hidden object game for you to play. Except there’s more going on than just fixing up the mansion. During the game, Scarlett discovers the diary from a former resident, which inspires her to write the owner’s life story. The more you buy, the more she’ll write.

The game play is exactly the same as Gardenscapes. You find hidden objects in different scenes in order to make money. Every bit of your funds goes to decorations for the mansion. You’ll also get cut scenes that require you to take part in mini-games.

This game is incredibly addictive. I give it 7 out of 10; a fun game from the makers of Gardenscapes.

Gardenscapes: Mansion Makeover (

         Gardenscapes: Mansion Makeover™

 After fixing the garden, you decide to relax in your giant mansion.  There’s only one problem, you were so busy fixing the outside of it that you forgot to fix the inside.  Now you have to sell everything in your house in order to fix it up.

Like the last game, you will be going to different rooms and selling various items in a hidden object sequence.

After you’ve saved up enough money for an item, you purchase which version of that item you’d like to have.  Unlike the last game, events actually happen on the main screen that you can take part in.  You still receive letters from townspeople and some even ask you to collect 20 of the same item.  You get something for your mansion when you’re done.  You can also choose to make the game into a screensaver so you can watch Austin, your butler, make various comments and get into tons of antics.

This game is addicting without much of a story.  I give it 6 out of 10; it gets boring after a while.
