Haven't played the whole thing yet, but the first 3 venues offer some nice changes & additions to the familiar Dash series. I like this one a lot. Your customers are the plants rather than steaming people. They each require some extra steps & for the first time in the whole series, there is actual strategy required to complete levels in expert time -- mostly regarding thinking ahead about when to use "relax" points & how many of which plants to plant (b/c color matching adds time, which is important in all Dash games and to complete on expert levels, which I find the whole point of Dash games.) As has become usual, there is another whole expert level to each venue, and they are harder, of course. Upgrades are fun & interesting, also requiring some thinking. This is the right amount of thinking & clicking -- a happy medium finally for Dash! Each venue starts REALLY easily. Each venue adds plants quickly, and deciding on which pots to add is interesting at times. This one will feel familiar to Dash players, but some thinking (unusual for this series) is finally needed, and with it comes a decidedly nice change to the Dash games. Well done, PlayFirst!
