App description: Help young Bloom rescue the Skyling Gardens from the terrible Blight Monsters!

Touch every square in the garden maze and watch it grow. But be careful, the gardens have been overrun with monsters who want to destroy everything. Use your wits to avoid or destroy them as you sprout the garden back to life.

Use the garden to your advantage. Trigger switches and elevators to dodge your enemies. Move sleepy garden cats around the maze to block passages and hold down switches for you. They don't mind. They'll sleep anywhere!

Can you rescue the gardens, or will the Blight ruin everything?

Features:
* Simple and intuitive gameplay.
* 30 gardens to rescue.
* A variety of adorable monsters to outwit.
* Three-star scoring system for each level. Can you master them all?
* Multiple control options.
* no ads or in-app purchases.

Very interesting mix of Crystal Castle and Q*Bert.

Hypocrypha, thanks a ton for updating your review in the App Store. I really appreciate it. I'm glad you are now enjoying the game on your iPhone 5s.

Everyone: Please keep the feedback coming on the controls! I'm curious whether people are having a better experience with or without the on-screen buttons, or if there are any actions you find tricky to perform.

I just took a chance on this. Its nice, and after trying it with the left button option, like it much better. The no button option is not responsive in the way that is expected. That would need some tweaking. But otherwise, lot of potential, and hopefully if it takes off, more levels in the future.

I agree with buttons turned on it's far better. Still needs a bit of tweaking or perhaps the hit areas to be larger. Love the graphics and the gameplay. It's like a good q*bert style game

The first screen looks like an exact copy of the first level of Crystal Castles...

And I know ios devices and trouble shooting. Regardless, I DID however UPDATED my review.
As you'll see, I gave it 5Stars on the INTERNATIONAL /American iTunes Store.
But I'll keep it at 4 stars here until YOU update. And now I shall BUMP your games thread on the TA list for you by hitting enter.
They were referring to it not working on iPhone 5S (which is clearly not true). Your iOS device and troubleshooting skills appear questionable at best. The request was completely legitimate, although you should have updated without having to be asked.

Lose the attitude.

More gameplay

That gameplay video is a little odd to me. The player seems to be tapping the screen buttons rather than just pressing to move along the path. I wouldn't want viewers to get the impression that the game requires that kind of repetitive input. Although you can certainly play that way if you prefer.

Here's another gameplay video I found on YouTube for comparison.

By the way, if you are is Seattle for PAX you can find Skyling: Garden Defense on display at the OUYA booth. I'll also be just up the street from PAX at the Seattle Indie Expo on Monday, Sept 1st showcasing the game there. If you are in the area, please stop by and say hello! http://six.seattleindi.es/
