Plantera 2: Golden Acorn

Plantera 2: Golden Acorn

The round blue Mellows return to tend to the garden once more and grow the big magical oak tree that have been rumored to have placed its seed there. Build up your garden around the tree to attract Mellows, round blue creatures that will help you pick up things and harvest your plants.

Tend to the oak tree and grow it to the sky to harvest its Golden Acorns.

Adorn your garden with decorations and watch as your garden grow more lush than ever before with new plants, bushes and trees and get populated by new animals, both in the sea, on the ground and in the sky.

If you want you can pluck trees and harvest plants yourself, or let your Mellows do the work for you while you watch or build and invest in new plants. The Mellows will even continue to work and tend to the garden while you are not playing the game!

As you play you will unlock new items and as you continue to expand and improve your garden your magic oak tree will grow even bigger with it, soon reaching its crown to the sky and beyond!

This is a cute, psuedo-clicker that is extremely simple compared to many of the other titles in the Clicker genre. Everything goes together very nicely. The only problem is that it’s mostly a quest to complete the achievements, and then there isn’t much to do. The garden gets maxed out. The upside is that it doesn’t require micro-transactions (I’m looking at you, Clicker Heroes, Adventure Capitalist, etc) to “complete” the game.

The idea is to build a garden with 3 layers of plants (trees in back, bushes in the middle, and vegetables in the front) to harvest, as well as animals to get “produce” from, such as wool, milk, eggs, and random stuff the pigs dig up. There are various critters that will try to interrupt the farming. Wolves and foxes will scare the animals, rabbits will steal vegetables, and birds will fly away with one produce item. Obviously this has minimal impact on the overall output, and they don’t really add much except something else to look at.

Create, expand and watch your garden grown in this super addictive and totally adorable casual clicker game.


Plantera is a simple and highly addictive clicker game, where the basic objective is to build and expand your own garden. As your garden grows, you collect more coins which allow you to further boost your garden (and coin collecting efficiency). Boosters can be bought with the coins, which allow higher value of produce, collecting coins when the game isn’t running for larger periods (I can currently leave my game for 12 hours, and come back to a large sum of coins waiting for me!), and guard dogs and scarecrows to scare away the critters trying to steal your produce! Though I’m not generally a fan of clicker games, I have really enjoyed Plantera thus far.

Luna’s Fishing Garden

Luna’s Fishing Garden

Luna’s Fishing Gardenis a short, cosy fishing and building game. Players take on the role of Cassie and catch fish, trade items and create a dream garden by cleaning up, planting flora, and bringing animals to the curious archipelago.

The game sees Cassie complete quests for the various animal characters that she meets, whether it is cleaning the islands for Luna the fox or collecting specific fish for Jellybean the seal. As various tasks are completed Cassie is able to clear more of the storm’s residual fog and explore further, encountering more characters along the way. Fishing is obviously a major part of the game and can be set to either relaxing or challenging mode. There is also a definite idler aspect to the game as most farming items have a timer dictating how often they can be harvested such as the tamarillo tree which has a 95-second turnaround.

Really fun and relaxing game. The premise is simple but entertaining - catch fish and plant flora to harvest and sell for money which you can then use to plant more decorations around the colourful, pixel islands of the game. As somebody who really enjoys the fishing mechanics in Stardew Valley, this game easily had my attention for hours. If you find that method of fishing too difficult, there is an option to switch to an easier method, so the game remains fun and relaxing for people of all preferences.

I really enjoyed the beginning of the game and the progression, up until a certain point. I’d still recommend the game, but with some caveats. There are some really nice positives, and most of the negatives have to do with how the game fizzles out towards the end.


Design: Cute and simple. I like most of the designs and the art.

Progression: Good feeling of progression at the start. The number of things you can upgrade and work on make the beginning of the game feel nice in terms of making progress on goals.

Alchemy Garden

Alchemy Garden

15 hours worth of exactly what I wanted, I’ve maxed everything out, looking forward to full release! I paid 5$ for this, and easily would have paid 15 - 20$ for the alpha.

Not sure if a developer has ever read one of my reviews before but, things I would like to see in the future for A.G (also my initials, because were dope) are :

Relationship status with villagers - Increasing this would broaden the villagers desires and spending leeway. The amount you overcharge on an item would be in the formula for decreasing their relationship points. Levels of acquaintance could be titled. Pop up messages from villagers to convey appreciation or anger. “Damnit! I can never rely on you!” This may even end up influencing his battle outcomes.

I bought and played this game for about 5 hours on Alpha 2 until they updated it the next day with Alpha 3, and there were so many changes that it feels like a whole different game. The Alpha 2 version was fun if a little simple, but the update has made the game so much better in a lot of ways. It was like the developer could read my mind, they added pretty much everything I wanted to see in this game.

Overall, the game is a lot more fun and a little more challenging than it was before. If you enjoy collecting/harvesting items and crafting with them at a casual pace, then this could be a fun game for you.

Monster Harvest

Monster Harvest

Should I recommend this game yes or no? I played about 50 hours of it.

But this game feels very early access. It is fine for the price.

Don’t expect too much though.

Here are my pros/cons.


-Monster farming/fighting is integrated in the gameplay loop, unlike Stardew Valley where it feels more like an afterthought/removed from the actual gameplay.

-The world is more phantasy like. You don’t have your typical normal farmlife but instead you farm eyes and skulls. Especially the Dark season is very Halloween. Yes there are only 3 seasons: Dry, wet, and dark.

I am quite conflicted about this game.

I really like the concept of Monster Harvest. It’s different from the usual. It’s like a mix between moonlighter (for the dungon part) but with planimals for fighters (a bit like pokemon) and harvest moon, stardew velley, peaceful days, etc… for the farming / townfolks part.

And that is a good idea. But there are a lot of itching little things.

Let’s start with the + :

Three seasons which are different from the usual is nice, 21 days instead of 28 or 30… Well, why not.
