One of the best games ever!
I have been replaying this game over and over through the years. One of the best games made! Wish they would come out with a second. Only a few games I have loved this much!

This is a great tower defense game. It's one of my favorite offered by big fish. I really loved this game. I download it for the first hour and was so disappointed when my time ran out. It is a lot of fun. I can go through it over and over again. Also, it is a lot of fun going back and trying to beat it at higher difficulty levels.

Wonderful Game: Replay-ability Is At An All Time High!
I've had this game for quite a while now and I still replay it! If you don?t own it, you should.
While Garden Defense is an older game, nothing about it will seem outdated. It best fits in the category of ?Tower Defense,? but it is your flower beds you are defending--from hordes of hungry bugs.
There is a wide assortment of insects heading your way and they get nastier the further into the game you get. I personally hate the big orange centipedes.
To defend your flowers, you can buy devices (garden gnomes with rocket launchers, pink flamingos to slow down flying insects and the cupid fountains to slow down crawling bugs# and plant flowers #cacti to attack flyers, bells to gas the crawlers and sunflowers, which attacks both#. You can also enlist the help of friendly insects #fireflies, stink bugs, lady bugs and the wonderful black widow#.
As you play the game, you need to defend gardens around the city. There are five locations each with three areas, for a total of 15 ?levels.? Each level is refreshingly different. And, there are five modes of play: very easy, easy, normal, hard, and very hard.
On each level, the insects come in waves #varying from 5 to 30 waves). You have to click a button to start the each wave, so you can take a break and assess your defenses between waves. You can also choose from three speeds and slow down the assault, if you want.
On each level you earn Experience Points. Between levels you can buy new items and upgrades. Don?t worry if you can?t stop all the bugs on some of the earlier levels. Once you get a few upgrades, you won?t have much of a problem.
The graphics are cute. The sound effects and music are good. Not annoying, IMHO. The story is pretty straight forward. Cut scenes are minimal?just enough to explain the story.
There are a few extras built into the game. There is a book with information on the bad insects and one on your defense options. There are about 15 Challenge levels as well. They are really challenging.
From my experience, Garden Defense is delightful and very, very replay-able. I highly recommend it.

Tower defense goes to the garden
If you are a fan of Tower Defense.....You will love this game. Instead of Arrow tower, you get armed gnomes with Cherubs that create a mud pit to stop the evil insects from attacking your flowers.
