Wedding Garden iPad Game Review.
So far, I've built one farm, two cafes, an entire city and an aquatic empire. Who else can say that? In real life, probably just a couple of people can take pride in doing all or half of these stuff. In the virtual land of games, all this is certainly not a big deal. And when I came across Wedding Garden, of course I said to myself that building a wedding paradise seems like a nice addition to my collection. So, it was back to the drawing board for me. And although I have a ton of work to do, I'm still playing. Pretty crazy, right?
Well, that's exactly how Wedding Garden is: crazy addictive! I don't know, maybe it's just me, but when all these quests keep coming and coming, and there's always something new to explore, plant, harvest, buy or sell, build and collect, I can't stop playing. And I realize it's an awful time waster, but just like the Pringles commercial says, it feels like "once you pop, you just can't stop." I say it again: crazy!
What Wedding Garden is all about
Now, the story behind Wedding Garden is pretty basic, but nice: two lovers are planning to have their dream wedding on a gorgeous island, but when they reach their destination, they find everything in ruins. And only with your help can they bring the island to its former beauty.
Nice indeed, but, let's be honest, these stories are more of a pretext to give the whole building, planting, harvesting, and so on, a purpose. If the graphics are beautiful, and the game has what it takes to give you the incentive to play, in the end it doesn't really matter if you're building a farm, a city or a wedding paradise. You're hooked anyway.
And Wedding Garden gets you hooked right from the starts. Because what starts like an interactive Tutorial, meant to teach you the basic stuff, turns into a continuous flow of quests that you don't really have to complete this very second. But it somehow feels wrong not to, since the tasks seem pretty easy to do and not time consuming at all. And what do you know: after 1 minute spent here to build a chocolate factory, 2 minutes there to plant and harvest some oats, 5 minutes to explore a new site, you end up waiting for an hour for the chicken to lay its eggs, thinking that there's still so much to do around here in the meantime.
Plus, there are all these incentives that get you going. Besides that strive to have the most beautiful wedding garden ever, you get all these crystals and special coins with every level you clear. And you can use the crystals to speed things up and buy all sorts of cool stuff. And the special coins unlock a mysterious treasure chest. And if you put your mind to work, you always have enough money to buy more, build more and earn more. Because everything you harvest, or collect from your animals or factories, you can sell at any given time to get more money. And the place also gets prettier and prettier. So, before you know it, you regard this wedding garden as a place of your own, an investment you just have to carry through. It would be a crying shame if you didn't.
A time waster only if you allow it to be
Bottom line, Wedding Garden is an extremely addictive game. Like all other similar games. This is not some ground-breaking discovery. But it is only as addictive as you allow it to be. Remember you can stop playing at any time and pick up where you left off when you have the time. Unlike an actual business, time stops in Wedding Garden when you stop playing. And if you manage to enjoy Wedding Garden without turning it into a horrible time waster, at the end of the day it can be a pretty cool game to play.
