Plant Tycoon is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great plant breeding game OK I bought this game yeaaaaars ago and I found it again in my stuff recently and I still love it! (13 years ago, good lord) I mean the graphics are decent by today's standards but not shoddy by any means. The games mechanics are good as well. They could use a modern-ish update though. Multiclick and drag, selling plants but being able to tend to your growing plants at the same time, and maybe some other tweaks. But overall it's still a really great game. It's a good time killer but you can also just let it run (while its closed) and come back later if you don't want to baby sit them. My fav thing though is you can change the speed of in game time or just turn it off for a full pause. The breeding system is a bit complex too, you have to breed based on plant type AND flower type. I highly recommend making a table to keep track of it all though. It can get a bit confusing if you rely on memory alone. Either way a great game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Haunting... Ok, more than four years ago I started yearning for some Zen and greenery in my life, and began playing Plant Tycoon with no actual skill or green thumb. This game was my stress reliever. No real plants or vegetation had to die during my experimenting with nature. I also enjoyed displaying and selling my plants at the nursery (which adds a nice business aspect to the game), and the bug catching side mission. Highly recommended; Alas, there has been no sequels as of yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my all time favourite strategy/simulation games. I hate career/business management type games whereas I love games like My kingdom for the Princess, Dragon Keeper, the Island; castaway. The object in this game is not to become a millionaire but to develop some original rare plants through crossbreeding and genetic mutation. No hustle here. Fantastic gameplay which can lead to extensive record keeping of crosses and gene linkages (simplified). The game is real time but you can leave the game at a point where nothing is happening to avoid this. It is a pity it is one of a kind - its predecessor is not in the same class

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First game I bought from BFG back in the day. Game may only have 4 songs, but I managed to track down the artist & get mp3s off him. You could relax to them or even use them to lul a baby to sleep. It's a pretty slow paced game that could take months to "win," & by win, I mean buy everything in the shop, max out your plant nursery, & discover every crossbreed. The fact that you can fail & be set back adds challenge & the variety of plants adds endless gameplay. Be sure to visit "Last Day of Work" & nag/beg them to make a sequel. If you like this game, you should enjoy "Virtual Families," "Fish Tycoon," & "My Tribe."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Endlessly Enjoyable I first started playing Plant Tycoon 5 years ago, and it's still one of my favorites. I love how well-executed the cross-breeding aspect is. If you are nerdy enough to compile a cross-breeding spreadsheet (like me), you realize that there are actual "genetic" patterns in play! The soundtrack is soothing to boot. With so many possible species, this game is sure to keep you engaged for a VERY long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I absolutely love this game! This game is not for the impatient. But it is so engrossing...if you like plants, I think you will love this game. You have to watch them, feed them, kill pests, fertilize, etc, and do it as the plants grow. You can leave the keyboard to do other things and when you come back the plants will have grown, produced seeds and so on. Thank goodness you can set the time so that if you turn it off for 20 hours you don't come back to find everything dead. (I killed everything the first time.) The details are amazing. And you sell them in a nursery, but only when they are ready. I think this may be my favorite game of any, and I have LOTS of games from BigFish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relaxing and challenging This game is truly an exhale of calm. I love the music and the subject matter. I love cross breeding plants to try to find new breeds. I only knocked a point off fun factor because sometimes I'm impatient for the plants to grow. But like virtual villagers, it's time based. It's the sort of game you enjoy slowly and let it work for you while you're away. While you're playing you can catch butterflies, care for your plants and sell in the market. The music really makes this game the wonderful game it is, however. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not for everyone, but I loved it! If you've played fish tycoon it's a similar type of game. You start with a few normal seeds and average soil etc. As you cultivate and sell plants you gain money to buy more rare seeds, better soil etc. You can cross pollinate which sometimes gives a better plant other times gives a plant prone to disease that costs more money in bug spray and nutrients or dies before you can sell it. In the normal window you're just watering and planting. In the selling window you watch the creepy people come shopping with heads that swivel 360 degrees. (Pretty funny actually) You can upgrade all you tools, buy decorations for the selling area to attract more customers and catch bugs for a collection. It's not fast paced, but you can speed time (remember to set it back! I think the clock continues when shut down if I remember correctly, so stop it when away) It's fun to see what plants you can create!
