Jardinains

CNET Editors' review

The adorable game Jardinains is one of the best Breakout clones we've seen. The aim remains the same: Destroy bricks by deflecting a falling ball with your paddle. Jardinains plays much like the arcade classic, with power-ups and different types of bricks. However, the game adds little garden gnomes who throw plants that subtract points and freeze your paddle momentarily if they hit you. If you hit a gnome with the ball, he will fall with a scream. You can bounce him up just like the ball and double the points for each bounce. Controlling the ball and falling gnomes while avoiding flowerpots and catching bonuses adds up to quite a challenge. The read-me file has good cheat codes, and the license agreement has good jokes. The only quibble we had was that in the main menu, sometimes you enter your choices with the mouse and sometimes with the arrow keys. Aside from that, Jardinains may leave ball-and-paddle fans shaking their fists at those naughty gnomes--then shaking their heads in amazement at how fun this game is.

    "Jardinains becomes addicting right away."

    December 29, 2010  |   By robertsax

    Version: Jardinains 1.2

    Pros

    Relatively simple program that serves as a quick diversion from daily routine. Can become addicting. Colors good, excellent variety of features such as bonus and negative score items dropping without notice from the top area of the screen.

    Cons

    Would like to see this in HD and, even better, made for the iPad. The VGA graphic resolution is old school, but still very functional and cleverly adapted to work with higher resolution displays.

    Summary

    I've played this game several times and find it an easy way to take a break without having to get involved with drama or setting up characters and weapons and complications like that. Everything works on my desktop computer with no glitches that I have discovered and there are enough tiers and skill levels to keep it interesting. Well done. Develop this for the iPad and distribution will explode into huge numbers.

    "Best little game to come along in a long, long time."

    April 2, 2010  |   By Ftubaman

    Version: Jardinains 1.2

    Pros

    The game is very flexible for different skill levels, and is challenging in the upper levels.

    Cons

    What's not to like?

    Summary

    I have had this game for years, and still play it quite often. There is rarely a glitch in opening it, and it functions smoothly through all of the levels and through the movement to the different levels. The pause function adds an ease in handling to the whole experience. The levels repeat adding twists and changes that keep the game interesting. I give this a "10!"

    "Excellent variation of "Break-Out""

    March 14, 2010  |   By MumblinBerk

    Version: Jardinains 1.2

    Pros

    Stable. Funny. Fresh. Enjoyable. Decent re-play value for a freebie.

    Cons

    Basically, there aren't any.

    Summary

    It your looking for a quick, mindless little arcade-type BrekOut style game, this one is a kick. It's well written, well behaved, funny, and the game logic is random enough to allow a lot of re-play value. Lots and lots of levels. Certainly worthy of the small amount of HD space it takes up. Get it.
