CNET Editors' review
Despite the story line, girls aren't the only gamers who will enjoy Plantasia. You play Holly, a "fairy-in-training" who has to restore a series of gardens to grant a wish. The comic-book-style introduction keeps the file size down while elegantly furnishing back story. To revive the gardens, you have to dig holes, break up rocks, plant seeds, water plants, pick flowers, and, on later levels, poison pests. The correct tool will appear when you hover the cursor over a plot. You can quit the helpful tutorial at any point. Picking flowers earns mana, which you can use to buy more seeds or upgrade your tools. Once you complete a level's basic goal, you use the rest of the time to work toward the expert goal.
Plantasia's installation politely checks whether you want to create shortcuts. The only thing you can do to the music and sound effects is turn them on or off, but at least you can run the game in a window rather than full-screen. Though we wish the trial version didn't boot us out mid-puzzle when time was up, that didn't ruin the fun.
