Those gnomes, those terrible, terrible gnomes - The first time I saw this game, I thought, "oh, just another Arkanoid/Breakout clone." Oh, how wrong I was. The gnomes continue to haunt me to this day. How they dance about. The flower pots they throw upon my head. Their laughter. Their terrible, terrible laughter. The only real problem with this game is that you'll keep wanting to play "just one more level," and then you'll realize that it's been six hours and you need to go to bed, but maybe you can just try one more time, and teach those gnomes a thing or two... And is that really such a downside?
RIDICULOUSLY SLOW! - This "game" is so painfully slow, that it made me ill. I could have made dinner between the times the ball hit the paddles! Everything on my computer runs just fine, and the music and little critters all wiggle and play just fine, it is just that this poor game has the ball move and a pace the snails would think slow. If they could speed it up a bit it might be a lot better, it has the potential, but it slays me how slow it is. On top of that if you bounce the little gnomes X times it will "reward" you with something, but half the time the "reward" slows you down, or makes your paddles half size. I mean really, did this game REALLY need something to make it SLOWER!?!? I think it could have been a great game, if it were not so sadistically slow.

As addictive as it is AWESOME - Like any great arcade game, you will have dreams about it. I now see more gnomes than Tetris blocks as a slumber. You will love it, you will hate it. You will win, you will lose. But you will carry on. Don't think: get Jardinains!
Classic - I was a fan of the original Jardinains, and Jardinains 2 is even better. Incredibly addictive.
It's Highly Addictive! - Like most of the best games, this game is simple, but it's fun. Lots of silliness and enough strategy possible to keep it interesting for a very, very long time. It's my go-to game for a kick stress-buster.
Hilarious game, and bouncing those gnomes is SO SATISFYING - Great game with a great sense of humor. The gnomes (and the scoring system) add a new twist to standard brickbreaker. Totally addictive.
Excellent!! - My new favorite game!!
