Tim Schafer might find it difficult to get a classic point and click adventure game made these days, but Czech developers Amanita Design have been the custodians of the genre for the past few years, with their Samorost series and most recently,...

It is all so persistently delightful to experience, so charmingly quirky that Botanicula has the power to melt away any frustrations resulting from the occasionally poor section of gameplay. But that doesn’t excuse their existence. There are some good...

Joyful” is not a word I'd use to describe many games. “Enjoyable”, “fun”, “challenging”, “satisfying” all perhaps, but how many games can produce actual wondrous, pleasant, smile-inducing joy? I can name three off the top of my head: Samorost,...

From start to finish Botanicula manages to remain a charming and delightful experience.

Titles like Botanicula are why the point-and-click adventure genre continues to exist. It may not be as hilarious as adventure games of yesteryear, but it’s persistently delightful, oozing character and grabbing hold of the imagination. Many games...

Botanicula takes you on a delightful journey through a beautiful world that's packed with charm, clever puzzles, and a fantastic soundtrack.

Gorgeous visuals that paint an imaginative picture of a hidden world ; Clever and challenging puzzles ; Endearing characters ; Beautiful soundtrack

Not much replay value

It's a shame that your journey is a short one. A hidden collection of creature cards isn't the best incentive to go back and play through again either, particularly as the solutions to puzzles remain the same. But what a journey it is, taking you from...

A glowing seed blossoms into a beautiful tree even as the calm, almost meditational music lulls you into a warm, secure haze while you play idly with the brand new buds, unprepared for the sudden, vicious attack of an amorphous, spidery blob that...

Unique, surreal game world with outstanding art, animation, sound and music; vast cast of imaginative characters; challenging but interesting gameplay; numerous puzzles of many varieties

Main cast poorly-defined as individuals and never work in tandem to solve problems; zero instructions and experiment-based gameplay may alienate inexperienced players

A creation of obvious love and care, Botanicula is a must-play for those seeking a truly imaginative and entertaining adventure game.

The secret life of plants

A little blurry around the edges and not always focusing into the puzzle game it is at heart, but Botanicula is dripping with so much charm and character that it's impossible to feel grumpy with it.

Interacting with this bright and soulful world is a deeply involving experience, and you’ll find yourself continually finding excuses to play for just a few more minutes... only a few more. Maybe another 15-minutes. Soon an hour has passed and you...

Art Style; Level Design; Charming Characters; Brilliant Soundtrack

Hints wouldn’t hurt; A slightly more comprehensive map

Relaxing and playful puzzle-solving ; Beautifully drawn and intricately animated ; Wonderfully imaginative

Large areas make some solutions elusive

Utterly lovely, although certainly imperfect, Botanicula is a game filled with soul and bursting with imagination. As you click your way to victory, it'll be hard to stop grinning.
