Wedding Garden HD: Written & Video iPad App Review
Get ready for an island adventure! The new Wedding Garden HD app for iPad comes to us from Game Insight sporting some seriously cheerful graphics and fun civilization builder style gaming with a cute back story and plenty of action to keep you enthralled for the long run.
Odds are, you’ve seen a civilization style game or two. The closest game I can compare Wedding Garden to is Farmville, only Wedding Garden has a clearer backstory, which always helps. Sure, building structures, planting crops, raising animals and decorating an island paradise is all well and good, but it’s even more fun if there’s a solid story behind your endless building.
In Wedding Garden, that story is a classic. Boy meets girl, they fall in love, they get engaged, then they head off to an island paradise with two tickets from grandma and grandpa, hoping to plan and have their dream wedding
Unfortunately, when they arrive, the island is trashed. So our plucky heroes decide to make over the island and host their dream wedding anyway. That’s where you come in.
By completing quests, exploring new territories and building an awesome island full of wedding-worthy adventures, you’ll create the ultimate wedding destination. This game is perfect for casual gamers looking for something to work on over time. It’s not the most original type of gaming I’ve ever seen, but it’s a tried and true style with a fun island twist. What’s not to love?
Layout & Design:
The graphics are quite crisp and detailed in the Wedding Garden iPad app. It’s a truly HD app, and makes plenty of use of the iPad’s expansive screen real estate. I love the little extras, like the cute waves and motions the engaged couple make as they go about their work, the waves lapping on the island’s shore, and even the super ribboned and bowed designs of the wedding decorations.
You can’t fault the folks at Game Insight for sticking to the theme. It’s island chic meets glorious wedding pink and white. The result may occasionally look jarring, but at least the app isn’t borring.
Navigating and playing the game is also relatively simple. You can pinch to zoom on the main game board, access ongoing quests and projects to the left, and open menus and other functions at the bottom of the screen.
Best of all? Wedding Garden iPad app is free to download and enjoy. Of course, you can buy more currency or crystals to move the game along more rapidly, and there is the occasional pop up advertisement for other games, meaning this title is far from kid-friendly. But still, if you’re looking for something casual to play, you’ve got a thing for island adventures or wedding planning, the Wedding Garden iPad app is going to be right up your alley.
Wedding Garden HD iPhone app requires iOS 5.0 or later and is compatible with iPad. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review, as well as a video production fee.
