Lotus is a beautiful game that grows into a unique work of art every time you play.

Clear your head and take in the quiet strength of the Lotus garden. It takes skillful care and nurturing to grow these flowers to their full potential, but once picked, they provide their owner with wisdom. Beware, for there are others who will do anything they can to get their hands on these mystical flowers. You'll need to enlist the help of creatures native to this land to take control of the Lotus garden and achieve true enlightenment.

In Lotus, players take turns adding petals and utilizing guardians to control and nurture these mystical flowers to maturity. Collect special abilities as you grow to aid you on your quest, and gain wisdom points for each completed bloom. At the end of the game the player with the most wisdom points will emerge from the garden that much closer to enlightenment!

Vibrant visual effects, skilled AI, meditative environmental music and smooth touch play translate the serenity of Lotus to your phone or tablet.

Game is one step away from perfect

Gameplay, graphics, controls etc. are amazing, and gaming the AIs, which even on hard difficulty play suboptimally, is also fun. The one thing preventing the game from being perfect, is a strange bug previously brought up in another review by LadyIce830. Specifically, when you are about to reach level 10, on the appearance of the final mission you need, the game softlocks, presumably because there are less than 3 missions left to display. Thus, you can never actually reach level 10, obtain the golden scoring stone, and achieve perfect enlightement, no matter how many times you outplay the AIs. I’m curious as to whether Lanterns, or any of DWD’s other digital board games have this strange bug, or if it’s just Lotus.

Developer Response ,

Thank you so much for the review and for the report! We are currently working on a solution for this issue and should have an update shortly.

Thank you so much for bringing this to our attention and for your patience as we investigate!

I originally gave this game 1 star due to frustrations at launch with bad connection. That has since been fixed.

This is a beautiful game. I love the physical games art and this really just knocks it out of the park. I really love how I can play this game with friends at different times.

If they ever get notifications to work this will be a 5 star game. As of now there is no way to know when it’s your turn until you open the app.

My favorite game on my phone!

First of all I love how beautiful this game is. It’s so calming and relaxing to just look at. The music is also very calming. But I also like that it challenges me at a variety of different levels. If I just want to relax at the end of the day and plan easy game I can do that. Or if I’m feeling up to it I can play a more challenging game and really push the limits of strategy play. This is a super addicting game. So if you have a road trip or a long flight coming up make sure you download this!
