Flowerz is a puzzle game from the lines of Bejeweled in that you have a grid area and need to work to get 3 like colors in a line. However, there is no "Swap to lineup" involved, it is placement of flowers from a que.

Time is not an issue with this game, there is no clock, no buzzer or no angry troll to beat...you can really think through your movements and plan ahead.

What gives this game it's difficulty, is that as it progresses the Flower in your que are a single color, and as you work your way up the levels they change to Multi-colored and add different colors. What I mean by Multi-Colored is that the flower will have 1 Initial color...and a separate color inside for when the initial color is matched and removed, the secondary color will be left on the board. This is where the strategy comes, because you have to constantly think of what each flower will LEAVE and plan accordingly.

So, that will give you a basic idea of the game...this is not a quick 200 because of some cumulative achievements that may take days to achieve. At my current pace, I can get about 10,000 pts in about 3-4 hours of playing on my couch, watching TV... To obtain the 250,000 total points, I would expect to play 75-100 hours.
5.0
OsirisPretty good review. Not much more to say about it. It will take forever to get all the achievements IMO.

Minchy Munchkin2 Thing missed in this review Which I think should be mentioned.

1 - value for money. It's FOC with the full 200 points and quite addictive as well. IMO it's better to play than 1 of the 100's of bejewelled clones out for the differences mentioned above. Well worth downloading.

2 - Saved games. Unlike most wp7 games I've got, it saves the exact position your up to, no more restarting the level you were on before (even if your phone goes into sleep mode or your battery dies) great for playing on a coffee or cigarette break at work.

BrutishMuffinthere is no way in the world it takes 3-4 hours for 10000 points. it's more like 10000 points in an hour max. I've only gotten about 50k points, but that has only taken me a few hours of playing.

OwnMyGamerScoreCurtieson did say 10,000 points in 3-4 hours while watching TV, so I imagine he/she just plays during commercials so that's pretty reasonable.

Not a horrible review at all, but perhaps a bit more detail into the modes and whatnot could be added.

Regardless nice job.
