This game was reviewed using a code sent by the developer.

Well, damn, I am learning while playing a video game...Crazy Plant Shop is a game based around the idea of breeding and growing plants to tell to your customers in your "Crazy Plant Shop". This game is actually used in school based environments because of the benefits and information it provides for teaching.

Essentially you get a customer who has a request for a certain plant. You then have to either purchase the plant out right from the plant catalog or you can breed the plant with your Super breeding machine "out back". When using the breeding machine you have to take into consideration dominant genes and recessive genes, as well as different genotypes and phenotypes combinations. While doing this you also use the Punnet squares, something which I have not seen since my secondary school days.

I can see why this game is used in schools, because there is so much information, each word that you may not be familiar with comes with an audio definition recording. I actually learnt quite a bit from this game, science wasn't exactly my strongest subject at school, and boy could I tell when playing this. I haven't managed to complete it. The aim is to actually buy all of the plants in the catalog within a 13 day time frame and not go bankrupt through paying rent everyday. I really struggled around day 8 or 9. You have to be really good at your breeding, and try not buy as many plants just to sell outright, at least that's what I figured out would be the best solution.

The graphics are very cute; the game can be played in a browser which I suppose is for the school environments that don't want Steam being installed on all their machines (understandably) , so we are not talking revolutionary graphics - it does its job to a very high standard.

The game actually has amazing voice acting; every character, and there are tons, have an awesome voice actor. It's actually on par with some AAA games if you ask me. It's amazing how good voice acting can have such a positive impact on any game.

Difficulty; like I said, I didn't finish Crazy Plant Shop, I am terrible at science so that didn't help. If you put a lot of hours into this game you will eventually beat it. I have seen people ten plus hours on this so it does have it's own fan base out there. Along with some very handy community made guides in the hub.

There are no technical problems which your regular player will run into really. The only issue I had was that I was not able to take screenshots either using Fraps or Steam, I assume because it doesn't use any DirectX engine behind it so it doesn't recognize it, who knows.

In conclusion, do I recommend Crazy Plant Shop? Well I suppose the best way of putting it is that I "don't Not recommend it". The game does it's job very well, it serves a purpose to teach the younger audience about breeding, genes etc, and it will do that! I will actually be showing this game to my partner who is a teacher to see whether it would be used in a classroom environment. I am not going to down-thumb this game because its not bad, it's just not going to be everyone's cup of tea who will be on Steam.

You should try this game out before judging it.
At first, I though this game is casual game like dashing game (Taking order and serve the customer quickly to earn points).
But turn out I'm wrong, to play this game you need to know the basic of biology (about breeding plants).
You have 12 days (13 days - 1 day tutorial) to run the store and at the end of each day you have to pay your rent.
You don't need to accept all orders from the customers, sometime it's wise to just reject the order.
By finishing this game you have learn yourself about Dominant - Recessive genes and some economic stuff like how to run a shop.

A game that is more to education and fun to learn deserve an appreciation.
I have finished the game and learn how to make a quality seeds.

Holy cow this game is intense for a kids game. Very interesting. Like Viva Pinata. On one hand it is shorter, but it is more complex. Recommended!

Despite probably being outside of the target audience, I really enjoyed this game. The mechanics are simple but not too tedious since there's plenty of variety in plants you can create, and it has really cute art and amusing characters. I only wish there had been more to it - perhaps different difficulty levels or a new game plus - so I could keep unlocking more plants and filling increasingly complex orders past the two hours or so it takes to play through it. If the developers made a sequel with additions like that, I would absolutely buy it.

Wow, who would have thought such a seemingly simple game could be so engaging and fun!? Diving into the science-y world of genetics through plant breeding is definitely amazing as well as great for the brain to think of how you're going to breed a specific hybrid for every customer that walks into your store. The voices are great, the characters are different and unique and amazing, and while they game is 'simple', it's still no walk in the flower fields because it really makes you think about how you're managing your orders and resources. All in all, this is a super great game that'll suck you right in to the point where you lose track of how many hours you've been playing it.
