5 the art and style 3 for the gameplay

Beautiful and cleansing game. The gameplay is short and simple. I wish there were more interactive components other than sliding hills up and down. I still enjoyed the game. While taking breaks to do various things around the house inbetween the gameplay, it probably took me 2-2.5 hours to comeplete it.

Yay, now for my Air!

I have played this dear little game on my iPhone, my iPad and now I see that I can download it for my Air. It is the most lovely, spiritual, soulful game I've ever seen. It doesn't change, but I still play it over and over, often when I'm having a sleepless night and need to be reassured of the beauty of the world. Don't listen to the dweebs who need bang-bang shoot-em-ups. Just pay the small amount asked and pray for many sequels.

This is a charming little game. If you are tired of the shooting, loud, obnachous games. This one is just the thing.
Relaxing, well put together, beautifuly drawn. sweet little story. Not overly chalangiong. A good game for the end of a busy day when you just wish to relax.
The music is easy to listen to and creative.
If you are looking for a chalange this game would not be for you.
Beautiful little game.
Not a wast of time or money.
Have a cup of tea and play it.
