Review by copper9lives

Wonderful, Astonishing Creativity - I'll admit it: I'm not much of a gamer, these days. But every now and then, when I need a break from thesis-writing, I look for games that can tell me stories, that can engage other parts of my brain in creative and refreshing ways. Botanicula does this in spades; the entire universe the game is set in is completely alien, and must be explored and interacted with to yield understanding. The creatures are delightful, surprising, occasionally laugh-out-loud funny, and always touchingly sweet and innocent (which is something of a hallmark for Amanita Designs' work -- I also recommend Machinarium unequivocally). The scenery is exquisitely beautiful, the colors rich and saturated, the interface easy to figure out with a satisfying number of totally unique puzzles, and the soundtrack is so much fun I went and bought it from iTunes as soon as I'd finished the game. If shoot-'em-up is not your style, and you're looking for a puzzle game that is like nothing else you've seen, this is the game.

Pure Genius ! - Love Amanita Designs. Always full of elegance, beauty, a sense of innocence and humanity. Hope I can get Botanicula on iPad as well, so I can play the game anywhere …….

Review by Squidward9000

Wonderfully created! - This is a beautifully created game, humble and innocent, from the sounds to the artwork, and is great for the whole family. I have no regrets with the price or purchase of this game, there are a lot worse things that you could spend ten dollars on! I cant wait for the next chapter in Amanita games!

Terrific! - Bontanicula is a joy to play! It has a great soundtrack with enlightened animation. It is creative and allows for a lot of exploration. None of the puzzles are too difficult to figure out, and the game is longer than Machinarium. The characters are adorable. Totatlly worth the price!

Review by CodexSeraphinianus

So much fun! - I don't usually like computer games, but this was amazing! The images are cute, the game itself is fun, and the ending even brought a tear to my eye. I don't really know what to say, except that I'm sad it is over (but I will play it again and again!) This was just so much fun! BUY IT!!
