Gardens Inc.: From Rakes to Riches
Hardest game of this type I've played.
Despite my hatred of Time Management, I love this type with the running around. I usually mess around with the game's scripts to allow for infinite time to play in sandbox mode, but I couldn't figure out how to do it here.
This game is severely more challenging for me than other games of this type, with the overly tight time restrictions & the amount of micromanagement piled on at each level.
While I'm too much of a laid-back person to enjoy being challenged, I know that's exactly what someone out there is looking for. I enjoyed it regardless.

Another Solid Pathway Game
Another solid "pathway" game - follows along the lines of MKfortheP - clear rocks and debris, build sawmills, etc. In addition to other tasks (i.e. collect 50 units of wood), each level requires you to plant flower beds in a specific arrangement (i.e create a striped pattern, etc.). The gardening aspect is a cute little twist, though i wish this aspect was more relevant - Gardens Inc. isn't really a "farming" game.
Overall, this is a good game, but not without some tedium - similar to other games, ghosts and other menacing creatures come out of the woodwork randomly causing your workers to return to homebase and not resume work until the creature is gone. Personally, I find this more annoying than challenging. Reminds me of the menacing pirate that would randomly appear in Island Tribe 2.

Fast pace and fun time management game
The demo was a blast, cant wait to buy. similar game to kingdom chronicles, and not as fun, but well worth the time. The story line is a different twist from many of the time management games i've played.

I really enjoy this game but would like the option to go back and redo levels. Other games I have played have this option. When I get frustrated I have to start over and dont like that.

Good but twitchy
The game was fine but a bit intrusive during the tutorial. Premise was fun and game was certainly playable. Game got twitchy when I hit F1 by accident and it never recovered. It made the game hard to deal with since it had to be force quit to get it to stop flashing.

Almost too tough
Some were very difficult and it resulted in not being able to complete the "landscaping". Really disappointing not to be able to advance.

at times, you would need to play the level once in order to set your strategy. You can click ahead.

Keeps you on your toes
Pros: Pretty fast moving once you get into it - no relaxed mode and you have to beat the clock planting flowers, repairing bridges and getting rid of the ghosts and robbers. I definitely enjoyed it after having to start over boocoo times until I got onto it.
Cons: That's one ugly female.

Garden Fix it Game
I like the general idea of the game, and the play is really good. The only thing I have against it is that it seems to be impossible to make the amounts of money needed to repair the villa. You don't get enough from each game to fix even one thing, and there isn't enough parts to get the money for everything. It's very aggravating. Like working for minimum wage and trying to buy a house and a car, etc.
