Then you sign your name on the line for the deed. It will then bring you through a couple tutorials to show you around the garden. -First goal is to clear away some of the rubble to attract Whirlms. On the touchscreen you will see in the upper right corner a blinking red outlined icon. This is you tool icon. As you collect different tools such as water can and shovel they will be able to access them from touching this icon. Touch it and the Shovel Icon will be outlined in red now. Click that to give a drop drown of choices for what you would like to do with the shovel. The green star means poking, the orange star means smashing, and the dirt icon is used to clear away rubble or grass to expose dirt in your garden. Click that dirt icon and now you will see your shovel on the touchscreen. Click and hold the touchscreen and drag wherever you would like to clear away rubble. You will have to clear it all away for this tutorial. You will notice after a clear away a certain amount that the symbol in the upper left corner of the touch screen will have a green exclamation point flashing. That means that something good has just happened. You will notice that in the top screen it will say new appearance by a Whirlm. After clearing away some more rubble and the Whirlm finally becoming apart of your garden the game will pause and the screens will show you Willy Builder. Just letting you know that he is the building maker (homes and other buildings). -In your garden you will notice objects that are half way stuck in the ground. You can take the shovel and using the smash option smash those objects so they are destroyed. They will drop coins which you click on and it will add to your pocket change. The top screen displaying the flower clock will show you how much money you have to the left. Below that is the Gardener Level and it shows you what level you are. You are currently at level 1 and should be around 1.12%. -Now clear all the rubble away so it shows that you have 100% dirt in your Garden Terrain %. In the upper left corner of the touchscreen, right below the switch icon you will see a Shopping Bag Icon. Click that icon and it will display the icons of the different people you unlock like Willy Builder and the shop. It will show Willy next to the options he provides and you will see an icon for homes. You click on that icon and you will see the whirlm icon for the whirlm home. Click that and now you will have the option of placing it somewhere. Try and place it in the upper left corner to leave as much room as possible. Any of the corner will be good. It will probably take a couple of seconds for the house to be build as you see Willy dig himself up and go inside. A little icon of Willy and a timer appears over the building and tells you how many secons are left. All buildings are different and as you progress they take longer to be built. Once Willy steps outside he waits for you to take the shovel and smash the hut. It will break displaying the newly built house. The screen will pause and you will be introduced to Seedos. He likes to gather seeds that may be around your garden. He will randomly show up and walk around your garden. It will go back to your garden and focus on Seedos walking into your garden. Upon entering the screen will prompt you to make a choice. Seedos wants you to choose one of his beautiful seeds. Choose one and then he will drop a seed and walk out of your garden. You then click on the seed. In the upper right corner of the touch screen next to the tool icon and new icon will appear showing a shovel. Click on that icon and the seed will bury into the ground. A little plant will show. You constantly click on the plant and see what it's water level is and make sure it is constantly happy. -You will notice now that the Whirlms should have heart over their heads. This means they are ready to romance. They met the requirements that you provided. Click on one of the Whirlms and drag to the other Whirlm. A yellow circle will follow you and make sure it clicks on the other Whirlm. If done right it will say Romancing in progress on your top screen. The Whirlms get together and do a little dance and you will see a mini cutscene showing them do a little dance or something (all are different). Everytime you get a new species to romance you will see a cutscene of them doing whatever they do. After watching the cutscene they probably will go in the Whirlm House. You will get prompted saying you unlocked new pinatas. (Sparrowmint, Bunnycomb, and Mousemallow). You will also be introduced to Storkos who delivers the eggs whenever you romance two pinatas. You will then see Storkos drop the egg off outside the Whirlm house. The Map Icon will flash a green exclamation alerting you a new specia has entered you garden. The sparrowmint enters. By clicking on it you will see that it's requirements for becomign a part of your garden is to eat a Whirlm and have a house. Keep romancing the Whirlms so you will have enough to allow the Sparrowmints to eat. Click on the Shopping Bag icon to get Willy to build a home for the Sparrowmints. Try and keep it to one of the corners as best you can to allow as much open room in your garden as possible. You should soon be introduced to Lottie from Costolot's General Store. She will be located in the Shopping Bag Icon and will sell a range of things to you (seeds, tools, ornaments, fruits, vegetables, etc.). Your seed that you originally planted is probably ready by now and should be a fruit or vegetable of some sort (i.e turnip). Certain pinatas will eat certain vegetables and fruit. So you can save it in your garden and see if anything needs it. Or you can click on it and an icon will appear on the right side of your touchscreen below the shopping bag saying Sell. It will double check with you if u want to sell it and you click the green check arrow and it is sold. It is now gone from your garden. At anytime you can click and sell anything (seeds, plants, buildings, pinatas). Just be careful what you sell incase you don't mean to. Keep the turnip so that the Mousemallow will come to your garden and eat it to become apart of your garden. -After breeding a couple Whirlms have the two Sparrowmints that are floating around your garden eat them. The Sparrowmints home should be built so all you need to do is have them kill the Whirlm Pinatas and eat them. You click the Sparrowmint and drag to the Whirlm. There will be little mini fights. Each pinata has a stack of chocolate which is health. When one reaches zero that pinata is destroyed and usually little candy will come out. The Sparrowmint will eat that candy. The sparrowmints will be ready to romance now. Click on one and drag to the other Sparrowmint. The Mousemallow should have entered at some point by now and all it has to do is eat that turnip and it will become a part of your garden. You should see a flashing green exclamation once it does. By now you have unlocked 3 types of Pinatas in your garden. Make sure you build a home for the Mousemallow also. This will cost you 165 coins so you will need to romance and sell to get enough coins. You can click on the Shopping Bag icon and Click on Lottie to visit the store and here you can buy more seeds. Buy another turnip seed and plant it somewhere it the garden so if another Mousemallow shows up it can eat it. You will need another to have them romance. Keep having the Whirlms romance so you can have the Sparrowmints romance. Don't worry about having too many. If it reaches the point that you have too many pinatas in the garden it will notify you on your top screen. Then you just sell some for coins. But atleast keep two of each pinata so you can romance to create more. It should get prompted shortly after that your tool has been upgraded. Your shovel has a little more strength to perform in the garden. -Around now you should be Gardener Level 2 and somewhere around 3.6%. You can grow flowers also and sell them for a little more gold than you paid to add up the coins in your pocket. You will notice that the flower petals around the clock on your top screen are filling with blue. As you gain experience for having new pinatas in your garden and doing different things. When all the petals fill up you reach the next level. **************************************************************************** [ 4 ] Pinata Species ---Arocknid--- Appear Requirements: Level 3 Gardener or better Visit Requirements: 4 Tafflies or Raisants in the garden Resident Requirements: Eaten 2 Tafflies or Raisants Romance Requirements: Eaten 2 Buzzlegums and an Arocknid House in garden Specie Conflicts: Arocknids fight Reddhotts ---Badgesicle--- Appear Requirements: Have 2 nonturnal residents in your garden and its nighttime Visit Requirements: 4 nocturnal resident in your garden Resident Requirements: Eaten 1 Newtgat and Eaten 2 Pumpkins Romance Requirements: Easten 1 variant Squazzil and Eaten 2 Tulip flower seeds and have a Badgesicle house in garden Specie Conflicts: Badgesicle fight Syrupent ---BarkBark--- Romance Requirements: Has eaten a Bone and has a Collar and has a Barkbark house in garden Uses: Barkbark can scare away Ruffians and Sour Pinatas out of your garden Specie Conflicts: Badgesicle fight Kittyfloss ---Bispotti--- Appear Requirements: There are 3 Poppie flowers in your garden Visit Requirements: There are 5 Poppie flowers in your garden Resident Requirements: Eaten 3 Poppie flower heads Romance Requirements: Eaten 1 Mushroom and have a Bispotti house in the garden ---Bonboon--- Appear Requirements: Bonboon resident in your garden Visit Requirements: 1 Monkeynut tree grown in garden Resident Requirements: Eaten 7 Bananas and Eaten 7 Monkeynuts and have 1 Banana Tree grown in garden and have 1 Monkeynut Tree grown in garden Romance Requirements: Eaten 3 Jameleons and have a Bonboon house in the garden ---Bunnycomb--- Appear Requirements: A Carrot in the garden Visit Requirements: A Carrot in the garden Resident Requirements: Atleast 4% grass in garden and Eaten 3 Carrots Romance Requirements: Eaten a Daisy flower and Eaten a Buttercup flower and atleast 6% grass in your garden and a Bunnycomb house in the garden ---Buzzenge--- Appear Requirements: A Candary in the garden Visit Requirements: 5 Candaries in the garden Resident Requirements: A Fir Tree in the garden and Eaten 3 Candaries Romance Requirements: Eaten 2 Pudgeons and Eaten 2 Sparrowmints and a Buzzenge house in the garden ---Buzzlegum--- Appear Requirements: Have 2 Buttecup flowers in the garden and no Arocknid resident in the garden Visit Requirements: 4 Buttercup flowers in the garden Resident Requirements: 6 Buttercup flowers in the garden Romance Requirements: Eaten any 2 pieces of fruit and a Buzzlegum house in the garden Specie Conflicts: Buzzlegum fight Raisants and will run away from Dragumflies and Arocknids Special: Buzzlegums produce Honey.
