Customer Reviews:

  • Garden of Fun
    Following is a review by Isabella (6 years old), one of the younger members of dream factory:

    "You can make a big nusery with flowers. "You can make a seed collection. And have as many tools and products for the nursery. And try to discover the 6 magic plants. You catch and collect bugs and insects, either for jars or money. You can sell the flowers to the customers. Their are 100 products to chose from, and 500 different plants."

    Parent: Yes this is a recommended PC game due to it teaching youngsters at many levels. Plant care/nurturing from seed - seedling - plant. Defence against insects. Nursery arrangement and customer service. Not a simple game by any means. Taking much lateral thinking during play and operation....more info
  • Best Tycoon
    I have played alot of tycoon games and I was one of those people who hated fish tycoon but this game is so much better. It gives you other ways to past time and make money other than just selling your items. You can catch bugs for money and sell seeds. Anyone who wants a cute little game to play that's easy and doesn't require alot of waiting....more info
  • Plant Tycoon
    I enjoy this game very much but mostly due to a program I downloaded from the developers forums website that does a great job of tracking all that you do in the game and that program provides an unlimited seed tray as well. If it weren't for that program I don't think I would enjoy this game as much or even play it out to the end because there is just too much to keep track of and it's easy to get bogged down in paperwork with it. Then it just becomes work and not fun, for me anyway, some would probably enjoy getting into all that detail. The plants are very pretty to look at and it's a great little game for when you just feel like sitting and watching them grow without having to think about it much. I rated the game 4 stars but honestly it's because of that program I downloaded. If I didn't have that I would probably have rated it 2 stars because it doesn't help you in any way to keep track of what you've done and the seed trays in the game aren't nearly sufficient enough....more info
  • Highly Addictive
    Got the Plant Tycoon together with Fish Tycoon. Much preferred this as it allows you to save your plant seeds of the new breed for future cross breeding. I would suggest making up a spread sheet to keep track of the parentage of every new plant discovered. ...more info

  • Plant Tycoon
    I like this game. I can play it while cleaning the house and if one of my kids need me i dont have to pause it to see what they need. I think this game is great for parents to just play if you like seeing what you can make by mixing the plants. I think some of the plants look beautiful...wish I had them in my garden. Over all it can get a little boring if you play it too much but it is still fun....more info
  • Entirely too addictive!
    I love this game! I have it, Fish Tycoon (the sister game that came out before it!) and all three of the Virtual Villager games. Actually, I have both the PC version and the PDA version, so I can honestly say that this game is extremely addictive. As for the Fish Tycoon game, I have the PC version, the PDA version and the Nintendo DS Version. The PC versions are put out by Activision which has done and excellent job and the PDA versions are by LDW. I recommend *ALL* of the versions!...more info
