Editors’ Notes

Is it unfair that butterflies get all kinds of love because they’re prettier than most insects? Maybe, but this delightful animated rainforest has us unabashedly adoring these beautiful bugs. With an incredible variety of goals to achieve, missions to complete, and butterfly species to raise, this tranquil haven feels like a second home.

Best butterfly game!!!

This game is great! I love that I can wake up to the calming sounds of the rainforest, wake up my butterflies and feed my caterpillars, go out for the day, then come back to them and do it all over again. I love the graphics, they make the butterflies and caterpillars look so cute! I think it’s awesome that the butterflies are real life species! I raise Monarchs and just have an overall fascination with butterflies so this game is great for me! The one thing that does disappoint me is that the caterpillars aren’t accurate. They look like what they’ll turn into which I guess can be nice. Monarch caterpillars are beautiful, they’re black, yellow, and white striped. In the game they're just orange. When they go into they’re chrysalis it’s green with gold flakes adorning the top which resembles a crown hence the name Monarch. For a few days before hatching it becomes clear and reveals its stunning colours. But in the game, the chrysalis is just, well... orange. I wish the caterpillar and chrysalis stages in the game where more accurate. It would make the game much more engaging and fun because it would make even the “common” butterflies worth collecting. I know this would be a big change but I’d hope this idea is considered! Great game, keep up the good work! 🐛🦋😁

Love this game and Starlight!

I have been playing this and Starlight for months because I have an amateur interest in Lepidoptera, and this game teaches me about so many different species! I love both of these games for different reasons, but Flutter is the better of the two in terms of play if not for the maxed out butterfly effects alone! Being able to hurry a caterpillar or pupa is so awesome and helpful, and I wish they would allow these effects in Starlight as well. Thank you for this app because I’m loving it overall.

I have a major complaint though, and a suggestion. I have now accidentally laid eggs and wasted precious Flutterbucks because there is no confirmation prompt on the Lay Egg button. I’ve lost a total of 70 FB doing this. When you are in-game tapping butterflies and flowers quickly, you can see how this can happen in a matter of seconds before there’s even time to register that I’ve tapped on a butterfly multiple times. There are at least 3 unnecessary prompts just to return a butterfly back into your forest (reversible action), but zero prompts to lay eggs (irreversible action) and spend your flutterbucks.

My suggestion is to please add a confirmation prompt for the Lay Egg button, and to make it faster to move butterflies between storage and forest by removing the confirmation prompts (or at least a few of them).
