Preliminary note: As I write this, I'm done with 15 fields out of what seems like 20. I've unlocked every upgrade available and I'm still amassing money with no idea about what I'll actually do with it.
This game is definitely not bad. The puzzle system itself is intriguing, the aesthetics are nice and clean, and for a while, there's a good feeling of progression. I have some issues though:
-The puzzle system is anything but relaxing. This game really feels like it ought to give you the time to think about potential moves. However, not only is there a time limit, but after a while you start seeing all sorts of critters and other things that threaten to destroy your crops. It makes the game feel frantic in a bad way, as it makes it hard to enjoy the strategic puzzle gameplay.
-After you get every upgrade, the game starts feeling like a bit of a chore. There's just really nothing to aim for anymore, and it gets tedious.
I still managed to enjoy myself playing this, but I feel like I've seen all it's got to offer, so I will probably uninstall it shortly to avoid getting sick of it. Overall, not a bad game, but not one I'd go out of my way to play.
Note: This kind of game is the reason I wish the review system had a "neutral" choice instead of a yes or a no.
