Blueberry Garden (PC) - Review

VGChartz
11 July 2009
  • Excerpt: Blueberry Garden has to be one of the most charming in existence. If I could just write a review on the game's charm, I would probably just write something as lame but simple as "This game is BRILLIANT!!!! Buy this NOW!" then give this a 10/10. Sadly, I can't do that and even though this game is amazing it still misses the opportunity to be given a perfect score.

  • Excerpt: You might have heard about Blueberry Garden through word of mouth, pondered its ineffable teaser trailer, or caught a glimpse of it at the Independent Games Festival like me -- and when you're faced by these unanswerable questions on your first playthrough, you're inclined to be moved or otherwise impressed. Where you can't scratch the surface, you picture depth. Playing the game shows these to be, I think, red herrings.

Blueberry Garden Review

GameSpot
19 June 2009
  • Excerpt: On the surface, Blueberry Garden sounds like a sure hit for fans of small-budget independent games. It won the grand prize at the 2009 Independent Games Festival, and it retails on the Steam digital download service for a mere $4.99. What's there to lose? Well, you could lose $4.99 that could go toward purchasing a better game, for starters. This teensy 2D puzzle platformer has mild, minimalist appeal, but it isn't clever or engaging on any level, and it's buggy to boot.
  • Pros: Pleasant minimalist visuals, Nice relaxing music, what there is of it
  • Cons: Solving the "mystery" isn't rewarding, Simple gameplay lacks charm and creativity, Bugs and technical issues

  • Conclusion: With the indie scene’s biggest award under its belt, the simple Blueberry Garden may make you wonder “What’s the fuss?” But take it at its own pace, and it’ll give you a soothing surprise.
  • Pros: Protagonist Mr. Beak has an inept flying style that seems totally hopeless, like a rag doll on a clothesline. When he gets the job done, it’s tempting to applaud.
  • Cons: Though

  • Conclusion: „Blueberry Garden je svým zpracováním vynikajícím reprezentantem nezávislé scény, avšak jen lehce nadprůměrnou hrou. Pět eur do ní investovat můžete, ale zábavu jako u Gishe či Aquarie nečekejte.

  • Excerpt: L'évolution du marché des jeux vidéo ne se résume pas à une course à la performance technique. En marge des grosses sorties plus ou moins standardisées, la scène des jeux indépendants nous fournit périodiquement quelques titres originaux. C'est aujourd'hui un jeune développeur suédois qui nous prouve avec Blueberry Garden qu'il reste encore une petite place pour la créativité dans ce monde de brutes.

  • Summary: Ergens op de bodem van de game-industrie en ver buiten het bereik van de tentakels van het winstbejagmonster ligt een haast nostalgisch tuintje waar het maken van games nog een 'act of creativity' is. Dit tuintje staat beter bekend als het ‘Indie’ (Independent) genre. Waar bedrijven als EA, Ubisoft, Sony en Microsoft puur uit zijn op de harde centen van de consument, boekt dit onafhankelijke en artistieke genre sterke vooruitgang.
  • Pros: Schitterende pianomuziek, Fris en fruitige wereld, Keuze tussen rustgevende..., ...en 'race against the clock' gameplay
  • Cons: Technische problemen, Korte speelduur

  • Summary: Ho il becco ma non le ali, eppure volo, e il cappello non mi sfugge mai dalla testa. Una testa che uso, sennò che ce l'ho a fare.
  • Pros: Un'idea senza prequel, Suscita emozioni, La musica vibra sotto pelle
  • Cons: Manca più di un mese alle ferie
