5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing and unique, 21 July 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Botanicula: Collectors Edition (PC DVD/Mac) (DVD-ROM)
I absolutely loved this game as there is nothing quite like it out there. This was created by Amanita Design, who also created Machinarium,another totally unique and highly amusing game. The game is very whimsical and that's what I love about it. It's about a bunch of five friends - little 'tree creatures' who set out on a journey to save the last seed from their home tree which is infested by evil parasites. You come up against all sorts of odd looking creatures in this game, creatures like spiders with long bendy legs, weird birds who sing weirdly, crabs with claws, and fish, along with all sorts of weird plants. You never know where you are going to end up and kind of drop through holes into something completely unexpected in some parts. The graphics although simple are wonderfully creative as are the little group of creatures, who all have their own special and hilarious voice to symbolise the happiness of a successful task or sorrow of a task that has failed. And towards the end things turn a tad sinister. One of the puzzles in this area is timed and I thought this was going to be an impossible task and especially on a laptop (and I do actually hate timed games) but I did manage to prove that it IS in fact possible (whoo whoo :) and I was impressed with myself for making it and especially as there's a lovely entertaining finale to experience. It's very hard to describe and especially as I played it a while ago now, but I enjoyed it so much and nobody else has written a review and I feel that it deserves a good one as it is so unique, strange and wonderful. So I thought I should get the ball rolling in terms of promoting this game. Seriously, if you're looking for a good game, that is also something different, give this a try and I promise you it will be a really entertaining experience.
