    Gardenscapes is an interesting fusion of the hidden object and building game genres. Casting the player as a recent inheritor of a run-downGardenscapes is an interesting fusion of the hidden object and building game genres. Casting the player as a recent inheritor of a run-down English home and its garden, Gardenscapes tasks the player with rebuilding the garden to its former glory. To do so, the player collects items from the cluttered rooms of the house for sale; the money earned from those sales is used to renovate the garden. On the one hand, Gardenscapes is an excellent hidden object game with sharp visuals (which take full advantage of the iPad Retina display) and excellent play styling. While hidden object games are generally a dime a dozen, Gardenscapes does a much better than average job with it, even going so far as to offer a choice between timed and untimed searching -- allowing the player to choose between challenge or relaxation. The other half of the game, wherein the garden is restored, is equally engaging, offering the player multiple "work toward this" elements that give the game a sense of purpose and accomplishment. Visuals in this half are also outstanding, and each restoration item offers several choices to fit the player's sense of aesthetics. Really, the only drawback of the game is its length; it is somewhat short, and while the hidden object stages don't generally feel like they're getting stale (thanks largely to the amount of detail put into each one), there are a fixed number and they don't change much (although the objectives do rotate, helping to keep them fresh). Replayability, though, is not a problem; there are enough objects in each scene to prevent them from becoming routine. The game just feels a little short given its price tag. Truly, though, this is one of those games where you'll reach the end and begin hoping for a sequel soon. Expand
