Educational, casual point and click shop game.

This runs like most 'shop' games, all taking place within a few screens. Graphics are cute and simple, music is okay, speech is a little jarring for those with an ear for sound production.

I found it interesting with regard to the terminology in plant genetics and heredity.

Short and easy game. Suitable for kids smart enough to stop pasting glue on their hands and peeling it off.

Very fun and easy to play game with short gameplay time. The theme as mentioned in other reviews, is not "mainstream" but it is still very interesting. I myself had fun messing with the concepts the game presents about breeding plants. If you want a short casual game that entertain yourself this is a good one. And if you happen to like plants than you definitively will like to try this one.

You get to be a botanist who breeds plants with different genetic makeup. Your goal is to unlock all plants after Day 13 as well as complete 4 challenges to win the World Fair. You earn money from selling plants as well as spend money on buying new plant species and paying your landlord store rent fee. This game is about financial management and space management. Though this game is fairly short, it was quite entertaining for its price.

Quite nice a game. Altough rather simplistic once you get hang of it.
