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.

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).

Amazing support team and absolutely stunning game

This is actually one of the first games I have reviewed, since I normally don't review games but Flutter and Flutter: Starlight are my favorite games! First off, the games are GORGEOUS from music to graphics and the characters are just adorable! I've never been big on butterflies/moths - until now, and this game is based off real species. Recently i opened an account with flutter, only to find I could not connect it to facebook. I sent a message to support and they replied within a few hours! I learned from them that I had another account, which I had forgotten about but now recognized. When I logged into that, I had so much more progress there! I wasn't sure what to do so I sent support another message and the sweet lady helping me actually moved all my special event butterflies from my less progressed account to the other one!! This is amazing and I don't think any other support does things nice as that. One thing I would like to see implemented is a "send to missions" button since it can be frustrating to try to keep track of a butterfly you are moving through the forest towards missions. But really that's my only critique! Thanks for a great game, Runaway!
