Not Quite For Me
3 stars for being so beautiful, but for me this was a 'Jack of All Trades, Master of None'. A little of this and a little of that done 'okay' on a stunning background. The physics were excellent at times and not so at others. Sometimes you explore, but once I finally figured out what to do, it was so simple there was no reason to explore any more - which was the fun aspect of it. Then later you're led around by the nose, and passing through any challenging areas feels more like luck than skill.
I understand the underlying theme and concept from the film, but as to translating that to a game I feel it failed. The events and any goals set forth seemed to be erratic and random in their placement and execution, leaving the concept undefined, and causing it to feel unsatisfying at the end of each level.
I found it to be simplistic in the way that each moment was more of an individual disconnected action. This was not a game that flows and builds upon itself, with continuity and well-placed momentum and goals.
I was hoping for something relaxing and thought-provoking, but found myself feeling simply frustrated and unsatisfied.
Could Be Longer
This game has one of the most interesting and unique storylines of any app and the gameplay is definitely different. This was exactly the kind of app I was looking for amongst the sea of overused plots and superficial gameplay mechanics. The only thing I would add would be more content. I played through it quite quickly and there was so much more that could have been done with the plot. However, though it may not be as long as I liked, it's still one of the best apps out there. Definitely recommend trying it out.
You had me at Level 1!!
Wonderful game! I love exploring! The plants are creative and beautiful and the music is soooo peaceful. Only thing I could see that would make it even better is if the plants puffed and/or moved if you bump into them.
Gorgeous game though! Wonderful!
