Is Flower a puzzle game or is it a meditative adventure in which the sheer spectacle of floating across its stunning landscapes absorbs all your attention? Yes. Traditional gameplay concepts are paired with novel interactions, and masterful use of color, sound, and movement. Flower is as much an artful expression of rebirth and regeneration as it is a game, and an experience that broadens the understanding of what a game can be.
Almost as good as the PlayStation original
I bought this day one upon its release on the PS3, and it remains one of my favourite games ever.
The graphics haven't been altered (neither better nor worse), and the audio is amazing on headphones.
Touch screen controls are passable, but a bit obtuse; I often find them both over and under sensitive at times, but the most confusing aspect is the speed control. Everything is molasses slow; to be clear not the frame rate or processing speed of the device…where the PS3 analogue triggers could go from a light press/crawl to a deep press/sprint, the iOS version only has crawl, which severely diminishes the sense of flying as the wind. 😕
The other critique is there appears to be no manual or text anywhere—even online—to describe what the two icons mean in the menu (camera with opposing arrows, and gradated chevrons).
Aside from the occasional glitch (audio dropping out, partial flower models, the red flower of level two and all red petals disappearing), it's a faithful reproduction of the console experience, especially with the accelerometer controls. Better the larger your screen and higher your audio fidelity. 👍👍
Beautiful but frustrating
After falling in love with Donut County and Sky: Children of the Light, I decided to check out some of the other games from the same developers. And Flower immediately caught my eye. I struggle with anxiety, so I bought this game thinking it would be a peaceful, stress relieving game that I can play to calm myself down. And, of course, when I opened the game I wasn’t disappointed by the beautiful music and graphics. However, the controls were almost unforgivably frustrating. It took me 45 minutes to complete the first level, and it just left me feeling even more stressed out. If there was some way that players could drag on the screen to fly around instead of tilting the device, it would make the gameplay a lot easier and more enjoyable. I want to give this game 5 stars, I really do. But until the controls are less frustrating, I can’t really enjoy Flower.
