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.

I would have loved to have played this game when I was learning about punnett squares in school and would highly recomend it to anyone currently learning about them. The landlord is Gregor Mendel, THE creator of the punnett squares, which I thought was pretty cool. When there was a word that I haven't seen since school the dictionary option was particuarly helpful. The only downside to the game is that when you finally have 2 of each plant, both having one dominant and one recessive gene for each trait, any combination can be created, thus removing any challenges from the gameplay. Overall I found the game to be entertaining for a day and would recommend it to science/plant enthusiasts.

I went in expecting something akin to the 3DS title Flower Town, but without that irritating "waiting for other people to progress" aspect. Unfortunately, it's not that, it's actually a game which was clearly developed for use in classrooms/aimed at youngsters. It's got a fun sense of humor, and none of the above makes it bad by any means, but it's not particularly deep and it's easy to blow through if you know how a punnett square works.

I appreciate what they tried to do here, but I honestly feel as though the lack of learning curve and the difficulty inherent in differentiating the smaller details in the windowed play mode, as well as the rather tedious instructions, make this a game that will turn away the vast majority of gamers. I do think that many of the plant species and gameplay elements are quite good and clever. Yet, I cannot help but feel that this game could have been highly educational and useful for a far broader audience with some fairly small adjustments. Instead, this is a game that really only works for a niche audience, and it's only through sheer stubborness that I stuck with it to the point of generally figuring it out, because prior to that it was highly frustrating. In general, that is not a reaction one wants to have when they start playing a game, and not one that most are willing to keep playing in spite of.
