PlayFirst today released Plantasia, a game of gardening that focuses on fictional plant life. "From the creators of Diner Dash comes Plantasia, a game of gardening delight. Enter your luscious gardens, where magical flowers and a fairy-in-training are waiting to show you the way. Plant seeds, harvest flowers, restore fountains, and watch as your gardens bloom. But beware! Weeds, rocks, insects and the clock are all waiting to make your game a fun-filled challenge." Players restore one garden after the next, choosing flowers and gardening spells as they discover how a fairy wish unfolds. The game features 50 levels, more than 35 types of plants with varying blooms, five gardens, multiple emotional states for each plant, and two modes that consist of "Holly's Story" or "Garden Challenge." Plantasia is available for $20 via Macgamestore.com, and requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.
