This game right here is great. From it's simple story to it's great randomness, there's nothing i would complain about. The art is amazing and the gameplay is awesome and intriguing. But most of what i loved about this was it's music and the sound effects, just brilliantly put and they even make you feel rewarded when you figure something out or stuff (though everything was pretty easy to figure out).

Botanicula is now my favorite point-and-click adventure game, because it’s the only one I’ve ever managed to beat without a walkthrough! Well I lie, I had to use a walkthrough ONE time. But yeah, it’s quite easy compared to similar games I’ve played, and as a result, I found it much more enjoyable, because I wasn’t lost all the time.

It’s also made in Flash, and shows that Flash games can look and sound really good. If you like games with unusual art styles, you should check it out.

great sound design and nice music too !

easy achievements are always a plus.

brief fun game. doubt you'll get past 10 hours of total playtime. I have all the achievements with my current play time, and while its very cute, I probably will not be playing through again.

Do you like to have fun?
Do you enjoy videogames?
Do you like wonder, magic and amazement?

Botanicula is a work of love, wonder at every screen, laugh at every surprise, sure its not for everyone, but if you believe that modern videogames are the ultimate form of entertainment, then Botanicula will undoubtedly leave you wanting more, few games have heart and even fewer magic.
Botanicula has both.

Enjoy this "simple" gem for what it is, a true modern masterpiece in every sense, in its simplicity lies its wonder, playing it makes you feel like a child again, full of amazement, full of joy...
