Sep 19, 2018The Gardens Between is a short and simple adventure that holds a lot of charm. It plays upon the nostalgia we all have for childhood and focuses on experiences we’ve left behind in adulthood. It’s also distinctly bittersweet in how it deals with the nature of change within relationships. While it’s not the longest game, it’s perfectly put together, and though the puzzles aren’t too difficult, the way they’re crafted should be praised as should the whole package.
Dec 12, 2018The Gardens Between is good enough to get you interested in what it has to say, and smart enough to know exactly what to bow out. It’s not perfect by any means, but it’s the kind of game that’s aware enough of its limitations that it doesn’t need to be. Go into it expecting a fun little diversion rather than an all-time classic, and you should find just enough here to make it enjoyable.
Playstation Official Magazine UKOct 27, 2018With a beautiful ambient soundtrack, and a warm story wonderfully told, it’s one that will stick with you for a while. [Issue#155, p.78]

If you do value your money a lot, this might be slightly overpriced, but in general the game is good, and even if it's technically short it's not like it didn't explore most of its gameplay.
The genre is a puzzle story which has a medium level of difficulty; it will be found hard by beginners but it's very doable by everyone else.
The puzzles are generally sensical with the exception of one or two only.… Expand

A short charming puzzle
The Gardens Between is a puzzle game where you play as 2 friends spending their final day together…
And you control both of them…
However not separately…
The gardens Between takes place across 19 levels and is a little less than 2 and a half hours long…
Here you’ll be doing increasingly challenging puzzles involving a lamp…
The controls and Idea is simple... you can move forwards or backwards which will rewind time or progress time… and both characters move simultaneously... so there is no back and forth nonsense going on here exactly…
there is a bit.. but it’s more of lining things up, passing the light onto the little box helpers in levels, or figuring out codes or ways to line up the environment to get past…
All with the end goal of getting the light to the end…
getting over the different environmental obstacles in your way trying to stop this from happening
nothing ever too difficult which I appreciate…
it’s a quick little charming brain teaser…
and I felt the gameplay consistently changing things up slightly as the game goes on while keeping the goal the same…
but slowly new obstacles will be thrown at you which will carry onto the problem solving of levels throughout..
There are so many unique and memorable puzzles here…
this is definitely a game puzzle game fans should give a shot…
There’s not much of a story and things won’t necessarily challenge you…..
But there is something special and enjoyable here in the Gardens between
I give the gardens between
a 7.5/10… Expand
Sep 23, 2018This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I enjoyed a peaceful Sunday with this one, I just wish it was a bit longer.
The puzzles are clever and there's always a logical solution -no lucky guesses- and the learning curve is just perfect.
A unique puzzler, nicely designed that with some extra content (length, maybe some more story in between levels) would be a classic. Sequel?… Expand
