What Is It?


A completely new simulation game where you raise a pet, known as Ppu – the Sweet Garden pet. This app is played as a widget on your homescreen. This ensures that your pet is constantly available and ‘alive’.

Is It Easy To Use?


Yes, once you’ve downloaded the app from Google Play you need to install it as a Widget on your homescreen. This is very simple to do and full instructions are provided along the way.

Is It Fun?


Totally, if you’re a fan of pet simulation games, then really this is as good as it gets. It is incredibly interactive and despite it being constantly ‘alive’ it does not drain your battery excessively at all.

There’s a built-in tutorial/help guide that ensures you fully understand how to play this game when you get started.

Your pet sits on your homescreen and keeps on growing, you can interact with it whenever you feel like it. If you want to water or feed it, or clip away some weeks or zap some pesky insects, then just click on widget and get fixing.

Should You Download It?


If you are a fan of these type of games, then yes, absolutely. This particular app is free but you can upgrade for $0.99 and get rid of some ads. This is recommended because the icons are quite small to tap and it is all too easy to find yourself viewing yet another ad, just when you wanted to water your plant, or similar. If you want to try it and see, then download the free version first to check it’s for you.
