I’d love to hear your thoughts on this.

Just when you thought simulation games – SimsCity, Flight Simulator, and a plethora of other artificial reality games – had reached their climactic point, it seems that gardening has now become a game in itself.

Last Day of Work® have created a Gardening Sim called Plant Tycoon®. The objective of the game (apart from waste more of your precious time) is;

“… to breed and cross breed plants until you find the 6 Magic Plants of Isola and solve the genetic puzzle. You start with a couple of dollars, a handful of seeds, some soil and water. Grow plants, organize and harvest seeds, monitor your plants’ health, age and maturity and protect your plants from dehydration and infestations. Sell some of your creations to fund your research, buy better supplies to use in your Nursery and purchase ornaments to customize your virtual garden.”

At less than US$20 it might be quite the bargain to add to your blogging – or blog reading – stints.

I’ve downloaded the PocketPC version so I’ll let you know how it goes.
