Gardens of Time: Chapter One

Gardens of Time was originally created by Playdom.  RockYou purchased it and made it into an app.  I’ve been playing it on my iPad.  The app is a bit crashy, but the content of the game is mostly the same as it was before.

Chapter One of Gardens of Time starts with a tutorial that walks players through part of Chapter One.  The tutorial is mostly over by the time players hit Level 2.  Here is what the rest of Chapter One was like.

Gardens of Time: Tutorial

Gardens of Time was originally created by Playdom.  They sold it to RockYou shortly after Playdom removed Gardens of Time from the Playdom website.  I did not immediately seek out the app because I had no device to play it on.

Since then, my husband gave me his old iPad Mini.  The best part of the RockYou version of Gardens of Time is that it is almost exactly the same game that Playdom originally released.  The beautiful artwork, and interesting storyline, are the same.

Gardens of Time: The App Version

Gardens of Time is a game that combines a well written story line with a hidden picture game. The artwork is very detailed and beautiful. Players can unlock more of the story, and more hidden picture scenes, just by playing the game.

My favorite part is the garden, where players can put different objects, buildings, and decorations – and move them around as they like. I recently started playing Gardens of Time again after a long hiatus. Originally, I was playing the game on my desktop computer (which is a Mac).  Today, I am playing it on my iPad Mini.

Gardens of Time: The Parisian Painter

Gardens of Time is no longer available at the Playdom website. It is my understanding that it has been removed from Facebook, too. There is a Gardens of Time app, but I haven’t used it (yet). The game may be gone, but I still have screenshots of it that I wanted to share. One of my absolute favorite things in the game was the series of scenes, quests, and items that were connected to the Parisian Painter Series.

Gardens of Time: The Tale Telling Art

Gardens of Time created a really fun Halloween chapter in October of 2013.  It was called “The Tale Telling Art”.  This chapter is no longer accessible.  Like the other holiday related chapters, it is only around for a limited time.  (This one expired on November 13, 2013).

All three scenes in the Halloween chapter were based on the work of Edgar Allen Poe.  Players needed to unlock these crystal chapters in order to get started.

Gardens of Time: Spooky Handbook

Gardens of Time did a couple of fun things that fit in with Halloween.  One of them was the Spooky Handbook.  It was directly connected to the Time Lab, and it had a “countdown” attached to it.  This meant that players had a limited amount of time in which to complete the Spooky Handbook.  I didn’t complete all of it, but I managed to get pretty close.

Gardens of Time: Memorial Salute

The Memorial Salute appeared in Gardens of Time in May of 2013. It was one of the “10 Days of Gifting” items. Every day, you had to collect up a certain number of a specific type of plane.

To do it, you needed to ask your friends to send the “plane of the day” to you (as a gift). If you did not get enough of the “plane of the day” you were out of luck and had to spend gold in order to complete the Memorial Salute.

Gardens of Time: Rainy Day Song

Gardens of Time has gotten into the habit of putting together special items that take days to build. Each can take anywhere between 8 to 12 days.

You cannot complete the build on your own. Instead, you must rely on your Gardens of Time friends to send you a particular item each and every day until the time runs out. I play the game through the Playdom website, so this has never been a problem for me. I imagine it must lead to a lot of “game spam” on Facebook.

Gardens of Time: Staircase Garden

It looks like Gardens of Time is going to continue doing periodic “Days of Gifting”. The most recent one involved a Staircase Garden. It worked the same way as the previous “Days of Gifting” items did. Playdom gives you a new item to put in your garden. The item is unfinished. To complete it, you must collect up a certain number of a particular item each day until the days are over.
