New Update!



The new update is out! :)
Thank you to everyone who tested it in beta!

The main change in this version is that the building mechanic have been redone to show a visible outline of the available slots where you can place a plant, bush or tree. This should make it much easier to see where you can build and also get rid of the problem of placing the trees at the edge of the garden that was a problem for some users.

A new button have also been added to the HUD that that let you scroll to the middle of your farm instantly (or you can press W).

Some other fixes has also been made, among others are improved windowed mode and some improvements and bug fix to the Loot Hero.

10/10 – CGN

About This Game


In Plantera you build your own garden and watch it grow with new plants, bushes, trees and animals.

As you play and expand your garden you will attract helpers, round blue creatures that will help you pick up things and harvest your plants.

If you want you can pluck trees and harvest plants yourself, or let your helpers do the work for you while you watch or build and invest in new plants. The helpers will even continue to work while you are not playing the game, and some new gold should always be waiting for you on your return!

It is good to keep your eyes open though as sometimes some mean critters will invade your garden. Hunt them out yourself or invest in a guard dog to keep the order.

Go up in level to unlock new plants, bushes, trees and animals and continue to expand and improve your garden!

Very cute clicker. Requires enough attention that it feels like you're actually playing a game, but not so much that you need to obsess over it. Definitely worth the price. My only "complaint" is that there isn't more. Hoping for a sequel or some update expansions in the future.

The merits of this game lie not in the gameplay but in the feeling you get whilst playing it. This game reaches its most fun when being played in the backgroung of something else (for example Netflix or Youtube). This game is verry satisfying in the way you can play for ages and then look back at how far your farm has come.

So starting this game I had NO idea what to do 0-0
After trying a few different things finally found out how to play and it took me a while to build up my garden-empire, but it was pretty fun xD

No story though and no explanations... rating this a 6.7/10.

If you are looking for a game that is fairly easy to 100% and you get this on sale, go ahead! Enjoy!

Plantera is a super cute gardening/clicker game. The game features cute music, cute animals and basically a well fun clicking game which can sort of get addicting.

Graphics:

The game features sort of 8-bit type graphics with bright colorful art-style. No big problem with FPS and it was generally running at 60 FPS for me all the time. The game is not that heavy on the graphics so you can play it on even old pc’s or pc’s without the latest graphics cards.

Sound:

The game has a cute theme track though it can get pretty old. So some variety would be nice but it was happy cheerful music which goes well with the game theme of happy animal/gardening type game.

Gameplay:

If like me you’re a fan of Clicker games, this game is very fun. You start off with nothing on the screen except 3 butterflies which you (kill? I really hope our blue creature doesn’t kill those butterflies), so you get 1 coin from each butterfly. Once you have the 3 coins required to purchase your first plant you can start the game. You buy the carrots plants and your farming (no pun intended) begins. So basically you earn coins and build trees and plants and animals using coins.

Once the plants and trees are built the vegetables/fruits start to grow, animals start doing their thing which is laying eggs etc. When the fruits and vegetables grow full, you can go ahead and click them to either pull them from the ground if they’re a ground plant type or tear them away from the tree. A second click on the fruits/vegetable/animal products will collect them and give you coins. You gain levels by earning more and more coins and new plants/trees/animals get unlocked as you progress to new levels. All sorts of animals and plants and trees are available. E.g. apples, pears, carrots, pumpkins, turnips, chicken etc.

Every time you buy something their price goes up just like usual clicker games. There will be cute rabbits, birds and foxes trying to steal your fruits which you can prevent by clicking on them. Every once in a while a gopher will appear from the ground and you can click on it to earn a bit of extra coins, same with lady bugs which give you a lot of coins. There’ also a knight cameo and he runs across the screen and you can click on him multiple times to earn coins. The game also farms offline so if you quit the game and log back in later you’ll have a bunch of coins. The game will automatically save frequently so you won’t lose your progress.

There are upgrades available such as a scarecrow and guard dog which will help you get decrease the fruits/vegetable stolen by foxes, birds etc. Another upgrade is the alarm clock which will make your blue creature work faster. Another upgrade available is the multiplier which will increase your coins earned to double the amount and lasts forever, so this upgrade should be bought whenever you can. You can also purchase additional land and extend your garden. Though it’ll keep increasing in price every time you extend. A short gameplay video can be found below.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=695454628

Graphics: 7/10
Sound: 6/10
Gameplay: 9/10
Overall: 8/10

Conclusion:

A very exciting and fun clicker game. Very casual, family friendly and fun game where and you don’t have to worry about a thing and just click away. This can also help if you’re stressed and just want to relax. I highly recommend this game, as a fan of clicker games this game is a must play.

This game. Oh boy, oh boy.

What I Was Expecting:
Dont get me wrong here, I love clickers, but I had a really hard time deciding to buy a clicker.

What I Got:
A totally adorable farming clicker that I would have spent like $7 on.

Pros:
ADORABLE
Farming FTW
Rabbits!
Pixel Graphics

Cons:
Rabbits and foxes are a bad thing.

But, the big question is; Is it worth it?
Andddd I can really say, if you like adorableness/farming/clicker then it is way more than woth it.

I really want to like this game. Really! The problem is... After 5 minutes of playing it became 4 things.

1. Earn Money

2. Buy Things (Plants/Animals/Exspansions, EXC.)

3. Click Things

4. Let Run for More Money and Repeat.

After a couple minutes it just became a game where I let it run in the background and checked every once in a while. Only reason why I'm still playing this is for achievements.

Clicker games can be fun. And this game is a step in the right direction for clicker games but it has no endgame and like I have said it ran out of me doing anything quick. Wait till a good sale to buy if you are still interested.

Product received for free
TotalBiscuit says that a game is only a game if it contains a failure state.

Plantera is a game where you have to click things to gain money. Using this money, you can buy other things, that help you generate money faster, so you can buy more stuff that lets you generate more money, that lets you buy more things, ad infinitum, a la Cookie Clicker.

This game is indesputably more fun that Cookie Clicker - there's a lot going on, it's cute, there's actual graphics, as opposed to just clicking aimlessly, but it has pretty much the game gameplay. Or lack thereof. Just click things until you get bored, and then tab out and do something else, and tab back in when you want to play again.

Not paying attention to the game doesn't mean that you're losing anything. Profits may go down, but you aren't missing out. This isn't a game you need to pay attention to to play. Idle clicker is pretty much the perfect thing you could call this game.

It's got cute graphics, and it's got nice sound, but that's about all I like for this game. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it's just not my thing. For what it is, the price is fair. But unless the graphics are your thing, just hang out with Cookie Cliker.

You buy it thinking, whatever it's $2, I can spend the little that is in my Steam Wallet, download it, start it up.

4 hours later you have an intense farm and you wonder what the hell just happened, then you're stuck for the next week getting to level 100 and getting the achieveables.

Go little blue dudes.

Alright then, It seems that you want to see if this game is worth buying. Well good for you, Im here to tell you ALL about this game including everying you can unlock and buy at the bottem. Just make sure you dont want to be spoiled before looking at those. Hope you like my guide!

(FYI, This guide still has a lot of information, but a few other guides might be better than this)

So this game is basically a cute little clicker game where you buy plants, bushes, tress, and animals to make as much money as possible. You also have little helpers that pick the Fruits / Vegatables off of everything so you dont really have to. There are also things that will want to take your plants, rabbits, moles, birds, foxes, and wolfs. You can also upgrade your farm starting at 750 coins. It is also possible to pick them yourself, but who wants to do that? There is also a loot hero that comes around every so often that you can click to get a lot of gold, Loot hero can also drive away rabbits, birds, wolfs, foxes, and moles. (Or I could have said all of them...)
(Put your hand down! >:| )
You can also gain levels, and you have to reach certain levels to unlock better crops - animals in which make you more money.
(If you want to see all you can buy, I'll include them at the end of this review. It might take a little time though.)

You'll probably want to know whats good and bad about this game, So I have np problems telling you, or at least trying to.

PROS:
  • Time waster
  • Cute
  • Non-Laggy
  • Lots of play time
  • For all ages
  • Cheap
  • No ingame purcahses
  • Lots of achievements
  • Good soundtrack
Of course this wouldnt be a game without Cons, but it really dosent have many.

CONS:
  • Lots of waiting
  • Easy to get money
Honestly, thats all I can think of. There are porbably more but these are the only to things ive found.

So this game dose get boring after a while and it basically turns into
  1. Start game
  2. Get money
  3. Close game
  4. Wait a few hours
  5. Repeat
So thats basically what it turns into, but if you're after achievements you'll probably get 30 - 50 hours of this
game! Im trying to get achievements so I'm going to be getting lots of play time out of such a cheap game. Also with it having such a good soundtrack it is definately a great buy! I would reccomend that you do get this game!


CAUTION! If you keep scrolling you will be exposed to spoilers! If you have seen everything, Keep on going! f you havn't... Go if you dont care about spoilers! If you haven't bought this game... Do what I said before this! But you do have the chance of being exposed to spoilers!
