Let's Play: Garden
A Simple Game for Children
You can only buy this game used, so for those of you who didn't get an instruction booklet, here goes: This game is for 1 or 2 players. You don't use a nunchuck, just the basic Wii remote. You move around with the +Control Pad, up, down, right and left. Because of this the movements of your character are jerky, and you can get dizzy walking around the garden, but this is the worst glitch in the program. Most of the rest of the game is pretty good if you like simple children's games. The basic idea of the game is that you play mini-games to earn items that make the garden look nicer. Walk over to one of the ! (exclamation marks) which are located throughout the garden. To play one of the games you must point the remote to either the bronze, silver, or gold versions of the mini-game and press the A button. You must always start with bronze, and then work your way through silver and then gold. When you win the gold challenge, then something new will appear in the garden. The graphics are cute, but not excellent. The music is OK, it's appropriate for the type of game this is. The best thing about this game is the mini-games. Younger kids will enjoy it, but grownups will get bored very easily.
