Will it be blooming marvellous?

There's a real shortage of gardening games in the world, so thank Virtual Toys for doing its bit to redress the horticultural balance with its upcoming Hello Flowerz for DSiWare.

Played out in real-time, the game asks you to tend to virtual plants, feeding and watering them for a few minutes a day whilst the passage of time helps them to grow and flower. With a range of available seeds including roses and orchids, plus periodic competitions to enter, those of you with green fingers and thumbs may want to check this out.

Releasing in Europe this Friday, June 25th and across North America from Monday 5th July, we'll have a full review shortly.
