Great game, and I don’t spend money on it ever I don’t understand the temptation to spend money on this game??? While I can see how easy it is to spend money, I never have and never will. For me, whenever the “buy” messages appear, I ignore them. When you are out of energy or lives, to me that is the cue to put the game down and shift focus to another activity, possibly that doesn’t involve playing another game on your mobile device or tablet. When I’ve exhausted my lives, I've already spent a considerable amount of time playing GardenScapes and it’s now time to do something else, like cook dinner, wash the dishes, sweep the floor, etc. This reminds me of how great this game is constructed. At the point when you’ve exhausted your current lives, you must wait a time period before a life or lives are regenerated. In essence, there is a subliminal message in this game that tacitly tells you to keep your priorities in order, and not be so obsessed with constantly playing a game for hours upon hours. I appreciate the sociological/psychological aspect of GardenScapes. Finally, the game is very impressive and the graphics are exceptional. The developers should be commended on how well they’ve constructed the game. NOT 5 STARS. READ THE LOWER STAR REVIEWS FOR TRUTH I’ve been playing the game for about 2 months now. Early on, I realized the best and only way to actually play this game is to invite friends. I don’t mind losing once in a while or even every other game (except if you do not win on your first try you lose any winning power up help) But game after game after game, unless I spend more money? I’ve spent more than enough on a part-time pocket game. The games are without a doubt set up so you are unable to win unless you have every single move, exactly right. Basically, it’s like going to a casino. Your chances of winning without power ups or coins are basically nil. Even after several invites and earning up to 25,000 coins. They are all gone. All power ups are gone. I have never gotten a jackpot on the wheel. The carnival, lost so many coins. Nothing that will help. It’s too bad because it’s a nice game if not for the fact that putting so much time into playing and never achieving, is nothing but frustrating. I do not like being taken advantage of. What kind of people fix the game so you can never win? That is just very BAD BUSINESS owned by very GREEDY people.
