Editors’ Choice

A rare kind of triumph, Prune takes a simple idea—pruning trees—and shapes it into a creative, deeply playable puzzle game. The visuals echo the style of Japanese painting in striking fashion, and the beautiful music instills a contemplative tone as you swipe to trim the limbs of a rapidly growing tree and guide it around obstacles. There’s no frantic pace, no demanding skills to master—only a quietly bewitching and unforgettable experience.

My opinion

The game was really sweet and relaxing, but I wish there where more levels and maybe the music would be just a bit updated, I like it and all but maybe make it so each level as different a type of music. Something to go with each levels own person style. But all together was a great game, I would recommend this game to people who just wanna do something to relax.

Prune : my review

English version below

Français :

Beaucoup d’avis disent que ce jeu est nul, ne vaut pas 5$ et que il ne devrait pas être jeu de l’année. Je parlerais donc de mon expérience, sans faire attention à l’avis des autres sur le sujet.

Pour résumer Prune, il s’agit d’un jeu basé sur un peu de stratégie et beaucoup de relaxation. À vrai dire, j’ai du mal à définir ce jeu selon un genre, il est simplement relaxant.
Le principe est assez simple, plusieurs niveaux avec une difficulté croissante, le seul objectif est de tailler son arbre pour qu’il puisse pousser plus haut et atteindre le soleil ou les étoiles.
Niveau Gameplay, bien que ça soit amusant quelques minutes, je ne recommande pas d’y jouer intégralement en une journée. Vu que ce jeu est avant tout prévu pour se détendre, jouez-y quand vous voulez décompresser un peu.

À noter que dans un tel jeu, se retrouver bloquer peut-être extrêmement frustrant, mais ne vous en faites pas, vous pouvez passer un niveau que vous trouver trop difficile. En soit, si certains puristes y verront un mal, il est en réalité beaucoup plus intéressant de se détendre en profitant de ce jeu que de se stresser plus à chercher une solution.

Si l’on s’en tient à ça, est-ce que le jeu vaut 5$ ? Honnêtement, non, car il n’est pas si long que ça. Ceci dit, sa durée de vie est éternelle, il est toujours aussi plaisant de couper son arbre pour admirer les fleurs pousser au Soleil.

Mais ce n’est pas ce qui fait la force de ce jeu. Bien que ce n’est pas clair au début, j’ai, à la fin du jeu, compris toute l’histoire, et retenu plusieurs leçons.
Je n’irais pas spoil ceci, je vous invite à les découvrir par vous même, mais sachez que ça parle de pollution et d’entraide.

Pour toutes les sensations que m’a fait vivre le jeu, bien qu’il soit un peu court, je suis très heureuse de mon achat, et j’espère que vous serez tout aussi combler par Prune en y jouant.

Souvenez-vous, ce jeu est là pour vous détendre, pas pour vous stresser. Si vous sentez que le jeu vous énerve, cessez de jouer, vous y reviendrez bien assez tôt, quand vous serez prêt.

English :

A lot of people say that this game is trash, that you shouldn’t pay 5$ for that and that it shouldn’t be a game of the year. Well let me talk about my experience.

First, let’s resume the game. Prune will ask you a bit of strategy and to relax. I can’t really define this game, it’s unique, all I can say is that it’s relaxing.
Basically, the gameplay can be resume in cutting a tree to make him grow so it can reach the sun or the stars.
Even if cutting a tree can be fun a few minutes, I highly recommend you to avoid rushing the game. It’s made to relax, so use it properly, no one is behind you with a chronometer.

Also, we can add that is such games, it can be frustrating to be stuck, and that’s why you can skip levels if you find them too hard. Some people may not like it, but it’s way better if you can just relax and not have that stress of searching for the solution.

With only the gameplay, does it worth 5$ ? Sadly, no, and that’s why you can see all those negative comments. The game also don’t have so much levels, however, it’s always fun to play a simply level you’ve already done and just relax while making your tree reaching the stars.

But the gameplay ain’t the strength of this game. Even if it’s not clear at first, at the end of the game, you understand the full story and get a few life’s lessons. I won’t spoil you, but it’s basically about pollution and helping each other.

So for all the sensations that game gave me, I’m happy of spending 5$ on such amazing game and I hope you’ll have such good time as I had while playing Prune.

Remember, make sure to relax. Play it whenever you need, but if you feel that it’s getting on your nerves cause you can’t find the solution, just leave it, you’ll come back soon enough.
