Skyling: Garden Defense
Developer: Mighty Studios
Help a young Skyling named Bloom restore each garden by touching every square to spring them back to life. But be careful, the gardens have been overrun with Blight Monsters that want to destroy everything, including young Bloom! Thankfully, the gardens have switches, gates and elevators you can use to avoid their grasp.
The gardens are also home to some adorable sleeping cats you can pick up and move. Position the cats around to keep the Blight Monsters away, or use them to hold down switches for you. They don't mind. They'll sleep anywhere!
Inspired by arcade classics like Pac-Man, Q*Bert and Crystal Castles. Skyling: Garden Defense is simple, maze-game fun suitable for all ages.

Skyling: Garden Defense is a good example of how preconceptions should not be based on appearances alone. The bright and innocent atmosphere here gives off a walk in the park vibe that is undermined by the game's deceptively challenging puzzles. With seemingly no incentive given to each level's time and unlockable stars, however, Skyling missed out on an opportunity to challenge the player to continually outdo past runs and perfect each level.
