[  3  ]    Walkthrough

I will provide a in-depth walkthrough of the beginning of the game (first 
few levels) to get you started.


-You choose a new save slot and name your file whatever name you would 
like. 
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.
