Editors’ Notes

Is it unfair that butterflies get all kinds of love because they’re prettier than most insects? Maybe, but this delightful animated rainforest has us unabashedly adoring these beautiful bugs. With an incredible variety of goals to achieve, missions to complete, and butterfly species to raise, this tranquil haven feels like a second home.

Please Fix!


Rarely do I️ give 5* ratings, but this app deserved it. There are 5 stars that must be earned, and I️ go by 5 critiques, one for each star.
The five stars:
The quality of the game in general: this includes basic concepts such as if it crashes, how good the graphics are, and how easy the app is to use. This app fulfills all of these things.
How much time the game gives me: what I️ mean by this is how much time the app will engage me for. This app doesn’t engage me for too long at a time, but the time builds up.
Advertisements: I️ know it is essential to have advertisements on a free game just because it does cost 100 dollars a year to keep your app on the store. (Unless you want to totally destroy the app and make it a pay-2-play) this app offers in game money (flutter bucks/coins and what not) for watching advertisements, making them optional.
How well the game lives up to its type: for example, if it was an rpg, then, in order for it to get the forth star, it must be good compared to the other rpgs. This game is one of a kind! I️ really appreciate it.
How greedy the makers are: the makers of this game aren’t very greedy at all. In order to collect event butterflies, it’s not a necessity to buy in app purchases. I️, personally do like to do in app purchases, but that’s another story.
One thing I️ would do though: Make a features that allows us to lock butterflies so that we don’t accidentally sell our important ones!!

A problem


I *love* this game. However, I have a huge problem with the current event. The game gives me 1-2 special flowers a day. I’m not positive, but I think that you are supposed to be able to get more flowers from friends. However, my game will not connect to fb and customer service says that the problem is with my connection. Not so. None of my other apps/games have issues connecting with fb - only this one and their two others, which I also play. I tried to find friends on Game Center but that doesn’t work either. My husband even downloaded this game so that he could send me gifts through the game, but the links we sent each other through iMessage didn’t work. We tried multiple times. Please fix this issue or at least make it possible to collect more event flowers on your own! I will happily change my rating back to five stars when this is fixed.
