As Shu, a space-cactus of the bouncy persuasion, you spring from planet to planet, spreading plant life and finding new friends. Create a forest! Enjoy a splash in a pond! Play tag with a bee! Make weird hybrid plants! Launch a giraffe into orbit!

Shu’s Garden is a fully open playground with no hard goals, scores or missions. Just kick back, explore and experiment in this space-garden full of friends, foliage, and fun.

An all-ages videogame by Colin Sanders and Jason RT Bond.

Tilt your device left and right to roll Shu around. Touch and hold on the right side of the screen to shrink, and release to jump! Touch and hold the left side of the screen to eat any plants you pass by. And, finally, when you have picked up any blossoms, you can shake the device to scatter seeds in a new place.

Shu’s Garden is created by Colin Sanders (design, sound, music) & Jason RT Bond (design, art, animation), but important contributions were made by Ami Matsuda (voice, Japanese translation), Mike Bond (grass) and Ornella Bertrand (French translation). All of them live in Toronto, Canada.

Need to work it out

Bought this as on the The Guardian top 10 list of apps for kids. None of us can work out how to play it though. It looks like it could be great, lovely animation and sound but I need to work it out to explain to my son. Has potential!
