Woah, I went 7 days just spam clicking for treasure till I "die". On the 8th, I decided to take the opposite approach, and walked around. Seeing the lake gave me an odd sense of wonder, and the quote at the end gave me chills. Thank you for this.
Pinball Gardener combines pinball gameplay with resource purchasing to manage a farm. While I love- LOVE- the concept, I think it could use a little more refinement to fully integrate the two genres. However, Pinball Gardener’s strongest suit is it’s art. The art itself is gorgeous- chunky pixelated colors and shapes really add a clean, visually appealing style to this game. Also everyone knows I have a crippling weakness for cute things rendered in pixel form. Beyond the basic art style though, the UI design is so clean and clear- some of the best UI I’ve seen this whole Jam. The sound design is also top notch, sfx are differentiated from each other and well balanced. This is a fantastic product to turn out in only 72 hours. I award this game 5 pixel art vegetables cute enough to actually make me want to eat vegetables out of 5.
