Great for a time out

I love being able to cultivate a bonsai tree at my leisure without feeling pressured by the game to constantly pay attention to it for hours on end.
The UI and general design is lovely and gives intuitive feedback and gives me the information I need to jump right in and figure things out without being bombarded with text and tutorials.
I can definitely see myself checking in on my Bonsai regularly.
