Botanicula

ablegamers.com
1 September 2012
  • Excerpt: As the title suggests, Botanicula is firmly rooted in nature and is as visually green and verdant as you might imagine. The game is a visual feast for the eyes as you travel through beautifully hand-crafted landscapes containing all manner of peculiar looking animals. During this point and click adventure game you follow five of these botanical creatures on a mission to save their tree from some nasty looking parasites that have invaded their home.

Botanicula

Adventure Classic Gaming
20 May 2012
  • Excerpt: While some critics may argue that computer games do not qualify as art, to claim that Amanita Design's Botanicula is not a work of art is in many respects an insult to the game's creator. This is because Botanicula is truly a visual and aural marvel, replete with the same mysterious and surreal feel that is the trademark of the developer's work. The game begins in a strange, ethereal world where a translucent, luminous tree grows.

Botanicula review

GameZone
10 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Nature is a perfect backdrop for a game about harmony. Botanicula (now on Steam ), a point-and-click exploration game from Amanita Design, extends that theme beyond the story of five tiny tree dwellers journeying to save their home from parasitic spider-creatures. From a design perspective, the game seeks to balance the pleasantries of music with delightful puzzles and exploration.

  • Conclusion: Concept: Five bug-sized friends set off on an adventure across the tree in which they live Graphics: The creatures and plants in this tiny world are full of life and humor, thanks in large part to their artistic presentation and animations Sound: Charming music and nonsense voices add tremendously to the smile-inducing scenes Playability: Things can't be much simpler than moving a mouse around the screen Entertainment: A classic and well-designed point-and-click...

  • Excerpt: Tim Schafer might find it difficult to get a classic point and click adventure game made these days, but Czech developers Amanita Design have been the custodians of the genre for the past few years, with their Samorost series and most recently, Machinarium . Botanicula springs from the same well of creativity, with all the pointing, clicking and quirky puzzling of those titles.

  • Conclusion: If you can pull yourself away from killing things for a few hours to play a sweet, adorable, bizarre, funny, joyful game, you owe it to yourself to buy Botanicula . It’s not massively challenging and it only really lasts four hours, but you’ll have a smile on your face for the entire time – and often a good laugh too.

GAME REVIEW – Botanicula (PC)

Alternative Magazine Online
19 May 2012
  • Conclusion: Amanita Design refers to this title as an ‘exploration game’ rather than an adventure game and this seems like an ultimately fair label. Even more so than Machinarium , Botanicula is about the experience rather than telling a deep, meaningful story. It doesn’t offer anything particularly profound or new, but it is a fun blast for the few hours it lasts and once again proves that the only thing restraining indie gaming is imagination.
