As we told you last week, Oceanhouse media released three new Dr. Seuss apps to the iPhone App Store, two of which centered around the Lorax and Earth Day. The app in question here is Lorax Garden, which we already knew was a continuation of the story from the Lorax Book proper, but Gamezebo has taken a look at the title to provide other details that you might be interested to know about this casual garden simulator.
The story in Lorax Gardens picks up where the storybook left off. You’ll travel from land to land within the game returning the cold and barren landscapes to their former colorful and plant-filled glory. This is done by planting a set number of trees in each land and waiting for them to grow. While you’re waiting, you play a flower mini-game that sees you planting seeds in order to earn “Care Hearts.” In turn, Care Hearts can be used to speed up the growth process of the trees.
Once you’ve completed an area to the game’s satisfaction, you’ll be able to take a picture of your restored land that can be shared with friends via email (there is no native Facebook support). As you work to restore the lands within the game, you’ll even unlock access to tree customization, allowing you to change the color of your trees, their stems and shapes.
Lorax Garden is now available for $2.99 on iTunes.
