  1. Fun for what it's worth.
    by Seth Foreman, USA - Apr 23rd 2010

    Your the lead landscaping and building planner in this game, you decide where you what to put each structure and then place your little workers where they need to go in order to plant the gardens, build the structures and sculpt the statues before time runs out. Your funds are also limited and each building, garden or structure you create costs money and only brings in a certain amount of income each month, so you have to plan accordingly in order to satisfy your clients.

    Overall, it's a fun, fairly simple game and what you'd expect for $9.99. I zipped through it in a couple of evenings and enjoyed the Shakespearean side plot of the girl who must pretend to be a boy in order to follow her professional dreams amid the snooty royalty, jealous rivalry and rigid expectations of the 18th century.
