  1. Moving plants around

    I'd like the ability to re-plant flowers and objects that have already been planted

        congratulations for getting so far. Have you unlocked all the plants now?

        What would you like to see added to future versions? Extra islands are definitely on the roadmap, we have visions of a whole circle of islands to control.

      • Make plants die and have more than one stat

        Make plants die after a while – having plants live forever is neither realistic nor good for game play. Also have more than one stat that you’re trying to balance as otherwise there’s little skill involved. At the moment all you do is plant loads of bamboo and, well, that’s it. The whole thing comes across as if it were designed by somebody who doesn’t play these types of games and has a freakish obsession with planting banboo.

          We’re always looking at ways of improving the game but we will keep the plants indefinitely. The goal for our players is to build up a garden they are proud of, removing and playing with the layout.
          We’ve done a lot of work on the balancing of the new version and are always tweaking the time vs reward of each of the plants, we’ve certainly removed the reliance on bamboo from the equation.
          We do have the option of using watering as another ‘stat’ but we’re reluctant to do so until we’re happy with the game as it stands, otherwise it’s just another thing to balance.

        • Hey guys

          I love the idea of the game, it's very casual, laid back, and atmospheric - however, I think it would benefit from a few additions.

          Retina display support - A game of this nature (no pun intended) would look gorgeous on the iPhone 4's screen.

          Game Center support - The game already includes achievements and linking them to Game Center would give extra incentive to play.

          Rewards - Although unlocking seeds is fine, it often feels like there is no reward/incentive for leveling up. Changing scenery/backgrounds as you progress may be a good idea. For example, constellations in the night…

            Hi Anthony,

            You’ve made some really great suggestions – thank you!

            We are looking at a more effective way of developing the multi player integration and Games Center is certainly being considered.

            Really like your idea of changing the scenery and being able to personalise the game in more detail. The idea of stars is one we think could really work and could offer an interesting concept via connecting with other gardeners.

            How long have you been playing the game and what is your favourite plant so far?

            Best regards

            Tim

          • Stay true; don't mimick FarmVille

            I really liked how spirit didn't expire, before the update, much unlike most Facebook games (which is why I stopped playing them); I have a busy life, and don't have time to constantly check back to harvest anything.

            That being said, I really like how much easier it is to level, now. In the earlier build, it felt like high-level grinding in an MMO. blech.

            I love the relaxing music, and like that the tree has a face. :)

              Thanks Elspeth, that’s great to know.

              Our current balance is between making it enjoyable for those with little time, yet testing to those who want more of a challenge.

              As you unlock a few more of the later plants they take longer to grow (and therefore don’t expire as quickly), designed specifically for this issue, so that you don’t have to revisit the game as often.

              We can actually update things like growth time and reward remotely, so if you are still finding it not effective for you, then let us know what could help!

              Make it so you don't have to buy some items with actual money $ . And make it so you get notifications when your plants need to be harvested. Also, have the spirit last longer and the plants get it quicker.
              Thanks.

                Hi Meggy, thanks for getting in touch.

                Notifications we have looked at and are trying to implement for an updated release, although I can’t put a time on when that will be ready unfortunately. We’ve played around with timings for the spirit, and are always looking to make it more satisfying for users. That’s why we have some plants that grow really quickly, but others that take a lot longer, but reward you for you patience.

                Money wise, do you have any other suggestions on how we can make money from the App? We don’t want to populate it with Ads so providing dedicated players with a way of getting new plants through purchases seems like it is fair on everyone?

              • Fix it so I can plant on the third piece of land. It just started.

                I can't get the window to open correctly or fast enough when harvesting or now ot won't open to plant anymore!

                  Thanks for the message!

                  We are looking into this and wii get it sorted as quick as possible.

                  There is a new version update in iTunes for download that features a few fixes.

                  Thanks again for pointing this out to us. Really appreciate it.

                  How long have you been playing the game?

                  Regards

                  Tim

                    Hi Deborah, you get the 3rd island at level 30.
                    Marigolds are a great idea, we’ll add them to the list of plants to add to the game.
                    What problems are you having with the pinch, anything we can help with?

                      We’ll look into this straight away! Thank you for the feedback. have you tried re-installing the App? There is a recent update available for the iPhone that fixed a few minor issues.

                      Thanks for the note,
