It's Spring -- time to grow some virtual plants. Get Reach for the Sun now for the low price of $4.99!

  • Strategy mode is now available on the plant selection screen
    This mode uses a set number of turns with no time limit. Plants will automatically collect resources between turns. Keep your plant balanced and try to maximize your resources on every turn to fruit each flower before winter comes!

  • Players can now grow the prickly pear cactus
    Cacti like the prickly pear have no leaves. Photosynthesis takes place in enlarged stems, requiring a slightly different approach to growing.

  • Bees!
    We’ve added bees to replace the current pollen system. Creating nectar will now spawn a bee. Players must click and drag the bee onto a female flower to pollinate.

Arvostelut

“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 clickfest that has you reveling in satisfaction. The game consist of clicking different sections of your plant to collect resources, using your spare time to grow and increase the rate at which you can collect resources. Budding flowers or fruit and ultimately collecting seeds before winter stops you. The life of a plant is an intense one and I have a new understanding for green life. The gamplay lasts about 3 hours before you complete the main. Replay value imo is low. Don't let that discourage you from the beautiful game that is Reach for the Sun. 8/10

This is more like an 'educational' game but it is nice.It provides you various plants to grow with their different stages and things to make the game enjoyable,which it does.Actually,I would've been more happy if they didn't provided the knowledge,which OF COURSE everybody knows(like photosynthesis,chlorophyll),but still I skip those things and play it. SO,my experience with this game is good and yes I would recommend it.

I'm really glad they included Strategy Mode in a recent update, because while I'm not that fond of RTS clickfests, I had a good time with the turn-based mode. Not that long game, got all the achievments in less than 2 hours.

A fun timekiller. I'd recommend this for anyone intersted in botany or gardening. It's a surprising thinker of a game, cute, and actually teaches you about how a flowering plant grows, if you pay attention.

Well Im torn on whether to recommend this game or not. It only takes 2 hours or so to complete the main game and unlock all the acheviements. So I would not recommend spending much on the game.

It is however, fairly interesting to play. There are two modes. "Cliassic" mode which I didnt like as its a simple clickfest as you franticly click to gather resources to continue building your plant. Then there is a "strategy" mode, which is esentially a turn based game. I enjoyed this mode much more. In this mode you plan each turn and spend your available resources all while trying to grow your plant enough to produce seeds to gain points to spend on new plants and upgrades.

Overall I do recommend this game, just know it will only take a couple hours to complete and try to grab it at a discount like I did.
