Critic Reviews for Garden Simulator

Garden Simulator is low risk, low reward, but highly addictive. We spent hours before we even realised it, and found the experience to be thoroughly relaxing; exactly what the small plot of the game sets out to achieve. While it’s nice to potter around your small garden and admire your crops, it does feel somewhat tedious after a while. Tasks tend to be repeated in some form or another, and there’s no variation in season or weather. Every day is the same. It feels like a trick has been missed with this, and that so much more could have been done by adding this in, along with some garden pests.

Ultimately, it's a great chill out game, it's very low stress and you could even get some idea for how to design a garden (to some extent) with the range of items available to you. Just remember… don't water the cat… pat it, unless you want to get notes from your neighbours about animal abuse. Definitely grab it for some easy going virtual green thumb enjoyment!

A lower learning curve gives Garden Simulator accessibility the genre isn't known for. The lack of touchscreen support is a negative worth noting, but the overall title (quirks and all) evens out as something worth digging a little deeper into.

Enjoyable for a time, Garden Simulator doesn't have the staying power to keep players coming back for more. Whilst it can become addictive, the lack of variety means that this wears off far sooner than I would have liked.

Garden Simulator is a great gardening game, balancing the strategy of unlocking all the items with the simple pleasure of creative design. Unfortunately, the size of the text reduced my overall enjoyment.

Suburbanites will likely recognize the tasks of maintaining a yard and home in some form here, but life is thankfully a bit less janky

Garden Simulator is a fun, casual game to play. You are limited to one garden and cannot change the building decor, other than remove the wooden planks that bar the outside of the windows. Features such as greenhouses would be a fun addition while further interaction with the random cat would always be welcome!
