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!

I got this game from the latest Humble Bundle and I must say that I'm quite enjoying it.

Do you know those pseudoclickers? The ones where you only click in the beginning and later on the clicking is just a small acceleration. Well, this is one of those games.
It's about growing plants, harvesting plants and scaring away fairly harmless predators. It's not difficult or challenging. There's barely any strategy or anything like that. It's just a simple, cheap game. And it's bloody great for it.
It looks nice and it's mindlessly simple. But if you weren't looking for something like this, then the clicker genre isn't for you anyway.
So, do I recommend it? Yeah, I do.

Genre: Casual

Plantera is a cute take on the clicker genre, a genre which is already gone beyond over populated with most of them being free to play. What does Plantera do to set itself apart from its competition, let’s find out


Plantera starts out by giving you an empty garden with the purpose of making it bloom. You click onto flying butterflies and bash moles to get the initial coins needed to plant your first carrot plants. From here, you have a little blue helper who helps out by pulling them out and picking them up. As a general clicker game, from there you start unlocking different trees, bushes, farm animals and special items by collecting coins. I was surprised at the speed at which these items unlock. Since it’s a paid game and not a free to play title, there is less grinding here than say games like Adventure Capitalist or Clicker Heroes. There are various critters who annoy who throughout the game like magpies who steal fruits fallen down from trees, dogs who scares away your animals and stuff like that. You can counter them by placing various special items like scarecrows and pets of your own to scare away these critters. You unlock more helpers when you expand your garden which slowly eliminates the need to click. This pace also makes feel you a little useless later on as you see the coins being gathered up faster than they drop. There are huge price spikes on more expensive trees, bushes, animals etc as you place a few. Unlocking more garden area also helps in increasing the limit of the amount of things you can place in your garden. In middle of the game, you will see loot hero and ladybugs coming in sometimes who give lots of coins when clicked on. In latter game, your only job seems to be limited to look out for these as clicking doesn’t seem as helpful as it would in other games of the genre.
In a normal clicker game, the time you spent away from the game also made you money for the time you were gone. While this is implemented here, it is applied in a different way. There is a limited time for which your workers will work after you’ve closed the game which can be upgraded slowly. You can also double the coins you receive every time with one of these special upgrades. Being a clicker game, there is a certain level of grind which slowly settles in with the huge price spikes. But, the time taken to unlock everything is surprisingly quite low. What disappointed me was the lack of options of the plants themselves, with 4 of each type running out of steam far early.


Plantera is a cute game. From your little helpers to the critters that invade, it is an eye popping game with colours raining down. Plantera keeps its cutesy touch down to the facial expressions. When a magpie steals your fruit, it looks so happy that you just want to let it take the fruit. When you come back to the game after sometime and all your helpers and pets are asleep, they look so peaceful that you do not want to wake them up. In the start of the game, it is just a empty palette, but as you progress through the game, there is so much going on the screen that it’s hard to keep track of what’s going on. The butterflies which give you coins have a golden glow on outside which helps them distinguish them from normal butterflies and so on. All the plants, trees and bushes have less variety but are distinguishable from each other, especially the cherry tree which when planted throughout the garden, gives a sense of bloom like no other. Overall, Plantera is a very cute and relaxing game to look at.


Plantera has a very soothing soundtrack loop. This keeps you in the game as you watch the animals go about their duties and listen to the music. It really mends in with the graphical design of the game and helps create a very good environment. Rest of the sounds are fairly generic with coin drops, dog barks and magpies chirping pretty fairly done. Later on in the game though, these sounds overwhelm you as you hear your pets scaring away the critters, coins getting picked up and so on. This almost drowns out the background score which is nothing short of stellar.


If you like clicker games, you will like plantera. It runs well on even the oldest of PC’s and there are no obvious bugs present. It is marred by the usual grindy tropes of the genre but it handles it surprisingly well and does an excellent job of keeping you hooked. It does not overstay its welcome and gives away everything it has to offer in a short period of time. Its graphical cuteness combined with the very good soundtrack makes it easy on eyes and ears. If you are tired of clicker games, Plantera might not change your mind much, but on 3$, it is worth a try

Most of the clicker/idle games that I've played always felt like MMOs: never ending. While I appreciate that, it's also nice to mix it up and actually have one that ends in a timely matter. Plantera does exactly that. I was able to obtain all the achievements in less than 15 hours of gameplay.

  • classic idle relaxing game
  • flawless animations
  • profile leveling

Plantera is a relaxing game where you place plants, bushes, trees, and animals on a 2D plane to raise money to repeat that process. Game can get repetitive and is relatively short (6-8 hours for 100% of achievements). It's fun for a while, but doesn't offer much variety or longevity.

Got this game from giveaway. Aaanndd its worth to play. Its a clicker farming simulation game, its very simple. Just pick the plants you want to plant and voila, it will bear fruits on its own without the need to water them, same for the animals.

+ easy achievements
+ funny music
+ cheap
+ cute graphic

+ repetitive, but you can leave it idle
+ you need to buy the upgrade in game to let the worker harvest the plants and animals longer, otherwise, you wont earn any cents when you leave the game

I got this game in a complex bundle, and decided to try it out.

It's alright, but I wouldn't buy it.

Basically? 2D farmville or something like that.
Music is catchy for the first hour, then it will get annoying.
I always seem to need more workers, and the prices for buying things goes up insanely.
The late game achievements only require you to sit and do nothing for a long period of time, you'll eventually get them if you have the patience.

No real skill needed, no real goal or objective, just a mix between cookie-clicker and farmville.

If you are really bored, you could buy it and waste 10 hours, but that's about it.
