    My Sis tried this today, and here is what I can tell you from watching her play (across the room, whilst I was working Belly laugh):

    This is a hidden object game with the same game mechanics as Gardenscapes: You have customers who come to your house to buy things, and you use the money earned to revitalize the inside of your new barn. The characters and "outside" graphics are the same as in the match-3 game Farmscapes. During HOG scenes, you can find hidden coins to add to your earned money.

    There are three types of hints to this one: The HINT button (you will get a cash bonus for NOT using the actual hint button) is one. The other two are items that you find on the screen: The lighbulb works like the camera in the first game - find a lightbulb, and you'll see a flash that shows you where five items are. The final hint is finding a magnet on the scene, and the magnet works like a compass, pointing out the direction of an item to find.

    There are some adventure elements to the game (much like in Farmscapes), but the primary thrust is hidden objects and rejuvenating the barn.

    I can't wait to play for myself! I know that I'm going to love it! Heart
