Night Garden text

Night Garden in Text mode.

Night Garden is unlocked through normal game play when a player reaches level 29.

Players can 'pay to play' Night Garden from level 27 onward, where they can choose to pay with crystals (which will need to be bought with real money) to unlock the Picture early, rather than waiting until they reach level 29 and unlock it for free through normal game play.

Night Garden is one of five regular pictures that require special items to play. In addition to energy points, a certain number of fireflies are required for each play of Night Garden.The number of Fireflies needed depends on the level the picture is at. Fireflies can be given as rewards for successfully investigating Palatial Office, given as daily bonus rewards for visiting friends, given out by Sphere of Miracles award, given out by the Pyramid of Wonder award and given as rewards for combining certain collections. Carrots required to play the Illusionist's Room can be given as rewards for successful investigations of Night Garden (from Detective Level onward).

From the Diary: "Christy was right. This garden - it's a wonderful corner to retreat to after a wearisome workday."
