Timed pipe puzzle
I really enjoy pipe puzzles so as this game is 100% pipe puzzles, I thought I'd love it and it's a game by elephant. Sadly I didn't.
Unlike normal pipe puzzles, this is timed and didn't have an end to it. Usually the goal is to turn pipes so you connect the ends but this isn't like this at all. You have a water container which waters the full connected pipe line and along the line there is flowers which auto blooms and goes automatically into your flower trellis at the left and the goal of each level, when it finishes is to fill the trellis of flowers.
Depending on combos or how quickly you get the flowers you get extras like water, different types of connections of pipes, timers, money etc which makes it easier to be able to complete the level.
But you have to keep turning the pipes to water all the flowers as there is no solution to it which is the most infuriating thing to me.
I don't like timed games but if it was a normal pipe puzzle which had a beginning and end pipe or even this type but not as tight a timer it would have been interesting. I liked that there was a bit of a twist to it but if it wasn't so 'open' (had an end to the pipe) it would have been far better or alternate the type of pipe puzzle as it was to much of the same for me.
In between levels you get to look at a cottage garden where you can buy things (flowers, trees) and that was nice although small area.
I just stopped at level 36 as I was bored (I think there is 60 levels) I just wish this brain teaser game didn't play like a TM game and actually had a different goal like it was possible to water all the flowers in the garden by a certain configuration. With tweaks and some vast improvements in the graphics area this could have been a gem of a game.

even though it is relaxing it makes your brain to work without you trying hard; lots of fun to play "Bloom "

How does your garden grow?
With pipe that you put together as a puzzle to water your flowers. If you complete the timed level, you can upgrade your yard. Very well done puzzle game.

Pipe Games Rule!
These are such fun games to keep the mind sharp and active. As a person with ADHD, it keeps me occupied, and helps me to be able to work on concentration on "one thing at a time". Please make more "pipe connection" games!

well what can i say about bloom?? it was blooming aweful, i've had more fun watching paint dry. This game seems pointless to me, its got a water tank and you have to turn pipes to allow the water to flow up the pipes which then water flowers, normal pipe games have an end once all the pipes are connected.. but sadly bloom has no end pipe.... like i said a BLOOMing aweful game.
I do NOT recommend this game

No Pipe Dreams For Me!
I love pipe games, but this one is not really a pipe game. I only played the trial, which jumped from tutorial #3 to #11, so I had no idea what I was doing. It's not clear what exactly you are to do as the pipes don't join together like regular pipe games. I also found I had to keep turning pipes after I thought I had them in the right place.
The graphics are beautiful, but the game was just too frustrating for me. I usually don't use tutorials, but when I do, I expect them to go in order & to be able to be understood & if not, then put in a help section.
I gave up after about 15 minutes into the trial. No buy for me.
