“Concealed beneath a smooth interface, a beautiful art style, and a really fun set of core-mechanics, Reach for the Sun, while certainly a successful game for the classroom, excels even beyond through the total consideration given to its design.”
Games for Change

“GameDesk saw great value in Reach for the Sun. Its ability to demonstrate systems of plant growth and the relationship between the root structures, leaf structures, flowering structures, and pollination is remarkable.”
Lucien Vattel (Game Desk, Executive Director)

“[In an interview with VentureBeat, Mark DeLoura (White House Senior Advisor for Digital Media) picked Reach for the Sun as one of his Top 3 educational games.]”

A cute little simulation game. I wouldn't pay the full price ($10), but I believe I made an okay deal when I got it for $5 on sale. The game doesn't offer too much gameplay time (aka replay value is pretty low, at least until they release more type of plants and maybe more extra stuff, if they ever do), but again - for $5 it's pretty much a fair deal. It's definitely not worth any more than that, though.

The recent update including the strategy mode cuts down on the "clickiness" by a lot; which leaves this game as a 4/5 for somehow being fun and educational. The update also had the unseen benefeit of cutting down a graphical issues, since it can go as a turn-based, not real-time.

A small educational game about plants that sadly lacks depth and becomes a manic click-fest just to gather your resources in time. Not quite sure how I would improve the game but its gameplay could need a fair bit of tweaking. The dev do seem fairly active so the game can still be very much improved.

Very simplistic achievements that mostly are tied to upgrades and growing each plant in an optimal way.

Time to 100%: 2-3 hours

Interesting game. The concept is what got me interested but at the end of the day, it felt like a click fest with no discernable goal or end game to achieve.

Why am I trying to grow individual flowers? Is it for the seeds? So that next season I can plant one more flower?

If they added some scale to this game, like, every year you have a few more flowers to take care of simultaneously, and then eventually you're tending a garden or something, it might have held my interest.

Beyond that, all I did was click click click click click click click click click to get a flower grown and harvest my seeds. Kind of one dimensional I guess...

Cool concept, needs more end game. Thanks for teaching me about plants.

I'm into gardening in real life, so this is a great tool for me to have!
Although you are given tips and background info through the tutorial, you play as a plant, fighting for your life and offspring!
This is a successful simulation-type game that generates excitement and reflection in the process of educating you in the subject of plant life!
