Good but room for improvement
This game is truly beautiful but it is lacking in certain areas. I really feel that instructions are a necessity with any game and this one is no exception. Granted, I figured out how to play but there are some that may not be able to catch on. Also, the sound effects can be a bit grating after a while. It's just a looped track of crickets chirping. I can envision soft music accompanying the game and being a very nice asset to the overall feel surrounding the growth of the trees. Basically two things added/changed would make this a five star app 1- Instructions for gameplay and 2- A musical soundtrack to add to the ambiance of the game. This is truly an app with potential!
Relaxing and Zen-like
This is a beautiful game and such an original idea. It is also very relaxing to play and rewards patience. Sometimes I am tempted to just draw beautiful, interesting trees just to try out what different angles will produce.
One thing though is that once in a while the AI will fail to pick up one of the wisp-lights when it should, and when that happens the game ignores that wisp from then on, making it impossible to complete the level.
Would love to see that fixed as it happened when I was at 855 points which cost me the #2 spot on the leader board, because I still had 3 targets left but couldn't get that last wisp to move on.
Still a beautiful game and highly recommended.
Fun but has some bugs
Its an addictive game and it's fun to collect the orbs. Takes a bit to get the hang of it but it's fairly easy although I'm not sure you can totally predict how the trees will grow. A bug: sometimes I get to a point where the orb Is right in the middle of a branch and it won't pick it up, and I use all my tries to try to get it and nothing works. It ends the game which is very frustrating. Overall a fun game.
