Gardenscapes™ is a mix of three different game genres: hidden object, time management and sim.

Gardenscapes™ is available at retail in over 20 countries and has been localized into multiple languages.

“We are extremely happy that Gardenscapes was distinguished by the selection panel of Great Game Awards 2010”, said Igor Bukhman, Playrix’s President, Products. “We are proud of the way this game turned out and the fan base it has built. We wish good luck to every title in the nomination list, and in the meanwhile we’ll keep our fingers crossed.”

Gardenscapes™ is not the only title of the Playrix brand that got distinguished in this year’s round of the Awards. Elementals: The Magic Key™, a puzzle game developed by Lucky Soft and published by Playrix, is one of the five finalists in the Most Innovative Game category. Last year, Playrix’s match-3 puzzle Around the World in 80 Days won the Great Game Award as Top Match-3.
