First, I want to say that I understand that this is a game developed by a single person, I think it has some promise, and I absolutely support developers learning the ropes and trying to make it. So despite the fact that I can't recommend the game, I applaud the developer for his effort.

The game is a Super Mario 64 / Super Mario 3D Land style 3D platformer where the world is made up of a bunch of connected geometric objects. You're a tree. You can run, jump, swing a leaf to attack... and that's about it. The objective of each level is to get three water drops and get to the end of the level; there are also berries scattered around (around 100 berries per level or so). You don't need to collect berries to finish the game, but if you collect 200, 400, or 800 you can "upgrade" your leaf, at 850 you get a headband for your character which seems mostly cosmetic, and there's an optional hidden level at 600 berries. There are 6 main game levels plus the optional level. Each level takes about 8-10 minutes. Personally I 100%ed the game--that is to say beat all levels and unlocked all optional content or unlocks in-game--at 71 minutes.

The issue is that much of the core gameplay loop doesn't work very well. Your default walk speed is far too slow, your default run speed is far too fast to be controlled for precise jumps. The game also never tells you you can run, so, PRO-TIP: You can. Underwater, everything is too slow and the physics don't adjust at all besides movement speed. Jumping is not controlled very well and I frequently missed pretty easy jumps. There are clipping issues. There are almost-but-not-quite making a jump and getting stuck in the lip of geometry and having to jump again to get unstuck issues. There are also issues where you feel like you've picked up a berry but you aren't inside its hitbox, so you sort of wander back and forth until you pick it up. You almost never get good feedback--the "feel" of the game is a real problem.

When you die (you will, frequently, enemies AI is basic, many enemies are stationary, the rest move in fixed patterns, but clipping is generally poor and it's difficult to tell if you're going to hit an enemy when you swing your weapon), you respawn instantly either at the beginning of the level or at a checkpoint, but you can't see where the checkpoints are and in my experience they're rarely where they make sense to be; but because enemies and items don't respawn when you die, you basically run through an empty level until you get back to where you died.

The camera is the biggest problem. The camera angle is frequently no good; for example, in a 3D platformer the camera should never be directly on your level facing straight, because it ruins depth perception entirely. The camera should never be so close that it obscures the action, and yet it is. Worse, as you collect berries, the bag your character holds gets bigger and bigger, so the obstruction is actually worse at the end of levels than at the beginning. You should never have to run towards the camera and take leap-of-faith jumps to get to platforms unless there's some visual indication that you ought to.

It's an hour long game, so obviously if you want to play it, you'll deal with the frustration. But it's pretty rare that you're playing and something isn't going to be bugging you.

The music's composition is not bad (it is a little simple, and it's not really catchy), but the author chooses very very very chintzy, cheap sounding samples for almost every instrument. In particular there's some sort of harpsichord used as one of the main instruments and it sounds really terrible. Sound effects are rare, to the point that the game feels a little unfinished because there are times where you expect sounds and don't get them.

You can't quit the game from inside the game without doing an Alt+F4 or Apple+Q or whatever. There's no main menu to go back to. When you beat the game, it sits at the end of the credits section. This is very frustrating to me. There's also no Steam Cloud support, and although the game is multi-platform, achievements don't work on the Mac or Linux versions.

It's a pity because the graphic side of things is very good. The enemies and your character are cute. The visual style is simple but colourful, and reminds me favourably of Mario 64 or Super Mario 3d Land. There are lots of little touches in the animation. If I had to guess, the guy is probably an animator or an artist who made a game, rather than a programmer.

I don't want to dissuade the guy from continuing to make games and there are occasional hints of promise, but it comes off more as the kind of thing that would have been free online in the late 90s / early 00s, or the kind of thing that would be released on Desura. I am confident that before Steam changed the approval process to be more open last year, this game would not have seen release. Moreover, the dev is still actively patching the game, but a lot of what he's adding in seems to be stuff that would be typical of a 1.0 release, which makes it seem even more like a hobby project.

It's definitely an earnest effort and I hope the dev keeps trying, but I don't think it's /there/ and besides supporting the dev, I don't really feel like there's much to recommend here.

Woodle Tree Adventures reminded me of old platformers from the PS1 era. I liked it a lot. There are 7 levels in the game and you can finish all of them pretty fast. You collect "berries" throughout each level which can unlock a bonus level as well as "leaves". The worst part of the game, however, is the beyond bad camera. The angels are terrible, it will get you killed more often than not. In the game's current state, it is not worth the the full price. Overall i would say it is barely recommended, but it is still worth a shot!

When it comes to how it’s made and how it runs, I would say this is a pretty bad game. It’s unpolished and just generally feels amateur. But it's cute and I still ended up playing and 100%ing it. I’d say It's a very easy 100% and that’s the only reason really why I even started it.

It can be quite charming and adorable at times but can also be quite frustrating with the camera angles and just generally it being a low budget/quality kind of game.

"Classical elements from the 90's games and new interesting ideas."
The camera, as mentioned earlier, reminded me of the Mario 64 rage days. When you find yourself literally screaming at the screen as if that would actually help the camera move into a less ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ position. Which if I’m honest, is the wrong part to be remembering of that 90s nostalgia.

It's not really at all challenging, the levels are pretty casual and are completed pretty easily. You collect berries as you go, which help to unlock levels, but there isn’t all that many levels to unlock so after they are unlocked the berries become somewhat pointless.

The story is pretty lame, but I think that just fits in quite well with how the game is supposed to be adorable and cute but so badly made that it’s just like… what?

But yes, all in all it’s quite bad but I’m still recommending and it and I still played through and completed the whole damn thing. No regrets!


TL;DR : Badly made, but play it anyway it’s frustratingly adorable and easy to 100%

What should I say? Beating this game was a child's play. Somekind of berry counter was bugged so I got the 3k berries a in few minutes. In the beginning I had some issues on the camera control. Then I figured out, you just can use it by zooming in and out with mouse moves in hope to get a better view.

Otherwise I really enjoyed playing these lovely animated and dreamful sounded enviroment levels. This game has no violence at all. It's like a Mario64 clone which is one of the greatest entertaining games ever. I liked the Bee Level or the Underwater Level. Even the Snow Level was slippery during walking. It's quite challenging to collect all 3 drops in each level. A nicely done fun game!

This is a traditional old-school 3D platformer with nice graphics and fun gameplay.Camera certainly needs fixing before the game could be fully enjoyable though. It's simple and exciting, especially considering there aren't many this sort of adventure/platform type games on PC.

Woodle Tree Adventures is a quick and casual 100%. The levels are simple and quaint. It's very linear but it's not something you play when you want a challenge. It's more of a pick me up game when you're in between other activities.

The camera needs a lot of work. Most of the time it gives you awkward angles and there's not a whole lot of options to re-adjust it.

Adorable game overall. I recommend it for an hour or two of half-bliss.

at the heart, it is a satisfying gaming experience for the most part that is worth a few hours of your time for the very easy 100 percent achievements, and trading cards being a nice bonus.

the devs(or whoever made the decision) to include STEAM trading cards and achievements made a good idea as people like me would have never looked at it otherwise, even as a free gift from indie gala (thank you indie gala)

the sound design in the game is the best part. nice satisfying noises, great music.
the game recommends you use a gamepad, and I do too. it doesn't feel good on a keyboard at all. the very frustrating and inconsistant camera are easier managed on a gamepad for some reason. Keys are bindable though. You can do a 2 player deal as well if you have a small child that would like this kind of game. Don't make an adult sit down with you though. That'd be cruel.

its a decent platformer as in its not bad. its just not original. nothing about the game is original. its hardly even an adventure, with just a few stages and no connection between things. barest of bones narrative. and to be frank, very lame art/world/character design. only controls are to move, jump, run, adjust the camera's closeness to you (its not a camera you can rotate) and weakly swing a leaf (your one and only move that isn't simply moving your character around the level) there really isn't a difficulty to speak of. a 5 year old could play this game to completion.

my only real gripe is the inconsistant and uncooperative camera. also the overall art design really seems like it was made by one teenager with ambitions to go into game development, which in combination with the lack of other game elements warrents very little of your time. however i do immensely recommend it if you are after easy achievements. I have them all with the playtime shown in my review.
At 2.99, I wouldn't recommend this game. At .50 cents or free , i can.

Before begin, who is the genius who doesn´t know there exist a thing called "paused", seriously is stupid you press "Esc" and the game closed...totally.

The thing can´t be more simply, you need to collect 3 tears in every level to restore an old tree because is old and blah blah blah blah is dying or something.

Levels are short (it have 6 levels and one extra)

But is replayable to find more berries to unlok leafs and achievements...

Is very easy if you don´t do a ragequit the first 5 minutes if you fall.

Relaxing music.+

The coop achievement....seriously? you need to have an xbox 360 controller? there is something called split-creen (i don´t say online also because is indie)

Well a indie game only about cute little things and happiness, oriented to the children public...

So if you come here because you want something easier than Dark souls or another average puzzle game because your mind can´t handle all that, this is your game...

Woodle Tree Adventures is a basic platformer which is meant for children 6 and under. The objective of the game is collect tears in levels and optionial berries which if you collect a lot of them, ur sack of berries just glitchs through ur character. The game to me is so boring and you just move so slow ormaybe its my laptop. In my opinion i think ur the enemy for u literally attack ice cream doing yoga with a leaf!? Theres really nothing else to say about this game
I give this game 7 out of 10 because the audience for this game is children, not adults or teens however the levels are design good and the berries and tears are hidden very good
This could be a much better game. The graphics are charming, the soundtrack is nicely chill and the lack of stuff like time limits is quite nice. It's got serious potential, but a few negative aspects really work against that potential.

The first and most damaging is the fact that you cannot control the camera. In a 3D platformer where it's very easy to mis-time your jumps, that's a quick road to frustration. Even worse, sometimes the game will change your camera angle for you, making it hard to see a jump that a moment before was perfectly visible. Add in the fact that if the character's pack is full it enlarges so much sometimes that you have trouble seeing past it and you can see that earlier potential just start to bleed away in a flurry of missed jumps.

The second flaw doesn't directly affect gameplay, but it affects immersion a lot. That is, the character animation. For the most part this is fine, and I really do like little touches like being able to jump until Woodle is upside-down. Charming. But when walking about the world, I noticed very quick that the walk animation doesn't interact at all with the ground. The speed at which you move seems independant of the motion of the legs, giving a feel of sliding about which may not seem like a lot but since you have to look at this for the entire game, it gets a bit bothersome. And to a degree, since you can't really tell speed from watching the character, sometimes it's hard to judge jumps and you're down into the abyss again.

The third is the general lack of explanation of anything. I've played up to where I was able to buy a second leaf mainly by accident. I had no idea why I was supposed to gather fruits until I pretty much randomly wandered outside the house for a bit. I'm not really sure what it does yet, since there's no explanation when you get it, so I guess trial and error? In any case, the game doesn't really give you anything to tell you that upgrading your leaf is significant, so it almost feels like the game doesn't care. Even a little fanfare would be nice.

Overall, I'd say maybe a 6.5/10. Barely recommend, mainly based on the remaining charm and the knowledge that updates seem to be planned. Hopefully they'll fix some of these issues.

This game really surprised me. I won a free key in a giveaway and wasn't expecting much of this game, but it was really fun to play the cute little tree.
A big contra: you can beat the game in less than 2 hours, but i think maybe that's the attraction of this game. Its a lot of fun for 2 hours, but nothing more. It would be a really great free-2-play title, but i wouldn't recommend to pay money for it. 7/10

This game is really cute, but that's it. There are just too many flaws that make this game not really enjoyable. Things like:
- No story
- No real objective
- No threats (you can die as you wish and enemies aren' much of a challenge)
- Horrible camera view (inducing quite a few of rage moments)
- Stupid fruit bag takes up your whole character as you fill it up
- Few levels you have to repeat to get somewhere
- Kind of flimsy controls

I just cannot recommend it, I had no fun at all playing this (maybe first 5 minutes).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tahle hra je strašně roztomilá, ale to je tak všechno, co se o ní dá říct. Je zde spousta chyb, které tu hru nedělají příliš příjemnou. Věci jako:
- Žádný příběh
- Žádný pořádný cíl
- Žádné ohrožení (můžete umírat, jak se vám zlíbí a nepřátelé nejsou nic moc)
- Příšerný pohled kamery (způsobující několik rage momentů)
- Stupidní batoh na ovoce zakrývá celou postavu, čím více ho naplňujete
- Málo levelů, které je nutné opakovat, abyste se někam dostali
- Trochu divné ovládání

Bohužel to nemůžu doporučit, vůbec jsem si hraní neužila (možná prvních 5 minut).

This is a first impressions after 30 minutes of gameplay


As a big fan of the 3D Platformers of the mid 90's to the early 2000's Woodle Tree Adventures quickly caught my attention when it released onto Steam the 6th of June. And after playing it for about 30 minutes or so I can summarize the game in one word ''Disappointing''.

Throughout the game you play as Woodle the tree, who is told by his father to ''Go get water and shizz''. You then embark on a horrendously frustrating adventure across badly designed worlds. The game is advertised as a return back to the 3D platformers of old, and the developer even has the audacity to compare it to masterpieces like Super Mario 64 and Banjo Kazooie.

In each level you must make your way to the end, collecting 3 drops of water, as well as apples which are used to unlock new weapons and levels. You're given a leaf which is used for hitting the idiotic enemies, who most of the time won't even try to attack you, and just happen to run you over when you step up infront of them while they're out jogging back and forth. The controls are absolutely dreadful (using mouse and keyboard) and movement feel extremely slippery.

The game suffers from a horrible camera, which decides to fix itself in awkward positions, causing you to misjudge your jumps and fall to your death. Sometimes it even locks itself to the side of you, turning the game into a 2D platformer, which can lead to you running into enemies you didn't see. The checkpoint system of the game is also terribly broken, and seems to place you at random. sometimes it places you at the start of the level, sometimes it places you just a few jumps away from the start of the level, and sometimes it places you in the middle, there's no consistency at all.

The audio design of the game is inconsistent. Sometimes it starts playing a song, and then suddenly cuts off for no apparent reason. The opening cutscene when your father talks to you is completely silent aside from stock sounds of the ocean which sound absolutely dreadful. The sound effects are laughably bad, so is the soundtrack

Can you have fun with the game? Probably. Children in Uganda have fun with sticks and rocks, but anyone with higher expectations than that should stay far, far away.
