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.

  • 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.

  • Conclusion: In case it's not obvious enough, I wholeheartedly recommend this game to everyone. It's funny, clever and totally lovable.
  • Pros: Beautiful and funny game that feels entirely handmade, not too taxing on the brain, highly imaginative soundtrack, the controls are as simple as it gets, very low system requirements;
  • Cons: Makes other games look even blander, although I'm not entirely sure if that's bad, Mrs. Mushroom is a tease.

  • Excerpt: Parenthood, as some of you will know and some of you will no doubt find out, is many things. It’s certainly a lot of fun, but it’s also a lot of hard work. Mainly, though, it eats into your gaming time. I was a mean machine at Civilization IV, but since the arrival of my little bundle of joy, I’ve just about managed a single full game of Civilization V.
  • Pros: Witty and fascinating, Pretty
  • Cons: Simple, if thats a fault, Some bugs at the mo

  • Conclusion: Those who do persevere, however, are in for an incredibly imaginative, action-packed, and rewarding journey that covers a hundred-plus unique characters and nearly as many tasks within a span of about four hours. The most engaging aspect of this game, however, which binds together the excellent production quality, creative gameplay, and diverse characters, is its soul, the indefinable “it” factor that makes you feel as if you're a part of the environment and inspires you...

Botanicula Review

11 May 2012
  • Conclusion: Botanicular’s puzzles are incredibly fun, and require you to be both thoughtful and diligent (unfortunately, this is not a choice, it’s both or nothing). At times it’s a double-edged sword. The reward you feel knowing you used more than two brain-cells to progress through the game is sometimes matched by frustration when you haven’t investigated an area to its full and utmost extent, which will result in you going round and round in circles till you finally stumble...
