I love the graphics, they are absolutely beautiful! And I like how the finger swiping is so smooth. I have one suggestion though: it would be fun to create your own worlds in a sandbox mode and play them. That would be really cool. Adding people would be fun and grow crops and things. I encountered a bug that almost no people would find but I would count it as a bug. So when my lives go to zero I can still make trees and things while it is going to the home screen. If there is an obelisk that pops when my lives hit 0, it makes the lives -1. Again, this is something nobody would find, but it’s better fixing.
To say that this game isn’t fun is not entirely true, but to call it fun is being too generous. It’s too simple to really be engaging, and as you get further in the game, sheer luck decides how far you get to progress. I can’t count how many times I’ve been far in a game, and an oil spill grows in a spot that is physically impossible to get to in 3 turns. Once, my fox was just far enough to make it perfectly in 3 turns, but a fire broke out right in my path making it impossible to clean the oil. On top of that, animals don’t specifically target disasters. You can guide them with trees, but they won’t turn to where they came from if a disaster breaks out. Overall, it’s a pleasant game, but frustrating that luck plays such a heavy hand in it. Would be nice if the game made it so that it would never generate a scenario that is guaranteed to take a life point away from you. It is not a bad game, but it is not worth paying for.
I bought this game off a whim because I thought it looked interesting but I actually am having a ton of fun with it! It’s strategic in the sense that you have to manage your moves carefully, but still fun to where even if pure not doing so good you still feel like your doing something. It’s very relaxing too, and t keeps your mind preoccupied if you want to just relax for a bit. It also has amazing sound and visual design. Overall a 10/10 for me!
This game came recommended by the folks behind Mini Metro, and this game is also an endless high score puzzler. This one lets players take their time, however, pulling up water, trees, and villages while their chosen animal wanders the land, occasionally halting disaster. I generally like it a lot, and it looks great, but it feels too hard at times, since the player only has three hearts with no way to restore them and sometimes the RNG nature of when damaging events are about to occur make them almost impossible to head off.
The design is gorgeous, and somehow even though this game is challenging, it’s peaceful too. The developer has done a great job here, and was detailed in response to a couple questions and feedback I had. They’re working to have mid-game saves in the future, so that’ll make it even more playable in shorter spurts. This is one of my favorite iPhone games, and to be able to buy it without IAPs is really appreciated. Great job, developers!
