Sweet Garden is a simulation game of planting your very own garden directly on your homescreen. You must care for, manage and grow your tiny seedling into a blossoming full plant. If you enjoy sims or Tamagotchi style management games, then this just may be for you!

Sweet Garden is a SIM game in which you care for and grow a cute little sampling “Ppu”, the Sweet Garden pet, into an adult plant. There are many activities you can manage to do this; such as cleaning your garden with the towel, use the scissors to cut weeds, use bug spray to rid pests, and of course water your plant. Do all these activities and in time you will keep a happy growing plant. There is a market within the game to purchase soothing music tunes your plant will enjoy, fertilizer for growth, and custom potting vases. You earn currency within the game in the form of silver and golden seeds. As an option, you can purchase seeds with real cash. It disturbs me to see the prices range from as low as $0.99 yet to as high as $89 for seeds. As you progress you get to unlock different background environments like the desert, winter season, and a fantasy land.
Sweet Garden is a game that requires you to grow your plant on your homescreen, so you’ll need at least a 1×1 (space for one icon) up to a 2×2 slot. This is required before you can even play the game, luckily the game has plenty of helpful tutorials to guide you through this. In the Settings menu of the game you can toggle plenty of features like; background music, sound effects, vibration, receive notification alerts of activities like pesky insects, battery status widget, animations (the game notes to toggle this if you experience performance issues), dialogues, and your plant’s life meter.
This will be a preference factor as some will thoroughly enjoy the tender love, care and time commitment you must have in order to flourish your garden.
The Tamagotchi style of gaming will immediately draw you in, if not you’ll certainly get alerts of changes in your environment in order to correct things when needed. Growing an adult plant takes days and not hours so it will be something you revisit often.
Sweet Garden looks and acts just like a cartoon. Your plant is animated along with pests trolling about and even menu items dance about making for a cutesy green world.
Accelerometer, Vibration and Sound
As mentioned there is background music and sound effects which can be toggled. I’ve noticed you can play the purchased soothing music for your plant to encourage plant happiness, while still muting the overall background music. Lastly, vibration occurs when you touch and interact with your plant, when using care methods or rid pests.
