you guys did such a beautifal job on this. The graphics are amazing, the colors are so bright, and when I play this it really does take me to another world. It’s so smooth, and the waving grass is so cool. The controls are good and I love the screen saver. The clouds are amazing and I love the idea, so original. Great job, and keep on going.

This game is magical
by Kritical Miss
At first, I was hesitant to buy this game due to reviews about the controls. While it’s true that sometimes you can tell it was meant for PlayStation, I didn’t find the controls that difficult to master. I really love how there are multiple times in the game that you can take a break from the objective and just admire the scenery and explore the levels. Each one is beautifully crafted and it’s clear that a lot of work was put into the design. If you are considering purchasing the game, I would suggest that you don’t focus too much on the reviews regarding the controls. Any problems with control is easily balanced by the beauty and freedom of the game. Worth the price, Flower is the definition of magic.
Game AND Interactive Art
by Butterfly Helper!
My favorite game of all time! I only sure wish they’d make a part 2! This game is virtual reality relaxation! The challenge is just to bloom all the flowers! The colors are so vibrant and must release dopamine because I always feel accomplished and relaxed when finished. It is more than a game. It is an artistic landscape that I actively add colors as I “save the world of flowers! After actively save the flowers of the world, I’m usually relaxed enough to release the worries of the day. My mind can imagine pushing through the flowing grasses with gorgeous, purples, blues, yellow, reds. My only frustration is that there is not a part 2, 3, or part 5! I’m constantly searching for a similar game but nothing has even come close!
IT NEVER SAVES!!! *must read*
This game has amazing graphics, visuals, and all sorts of awesome parts that make the game cool. I, not like the other reviews, do not think the controls are that bad. But the reason I gave it 3 stars was because IT NEVER SAVES! literally, whenever you go out of the game and then start it up again, you start off right at the beginning again! Are you supposed to play the game in one day completely through the whole thing? There should at least be a save and quit button, or maybe it should just auto-save like maybe, hmmm, ALMOST ALL THE MOBILE GAMES IN THE WORLD!!!!???????!!!! So, that’s my thinking. Buyers, please read this before you spend 5 BUCKS on playing the first 5 minutes of a game over and over again. 😡😡😡.
Glad to know it’s not just me...

...who finds the controls on this otherwise delightful game to be maddening. The tilt controls are really difficult to control; it’s not clear, for example, how to move down closer to the ground while moving forward. Sometimes you find yourself flying up in the air for no apparent reason. You have to be careful not to tilt your phone/iPad forward too far or your screen will flip on you. Also, the left-right tilt controls are unpredictable, at times moving left when you tilt right and at other times vice versa. The seemingly arbitrary nature of the controls can be really frustrating and mar an otherwise beautiful experience. If this were improved, this would be a five-star game.
Hard out the gate but love it!
I had a difficult time with the controls for a while at first. I found myself getting a little too animated with the phone waving it everywhere! Just keep it cool and you’ll get it. I find the game meditative and peaceful. I need that as I am a stress case. I do not play everyday so it’s a great game to pull out when I need to change my focus and chill. However I do notice that my battery gets low super fast after I play, and my phone gets hot. For that I give it 4 stars.
A game I replay for fun and hidden challenges
by PJ Donaldson
Played through all the way. Thought, that was nice. Then replayed one flower story and realized that the levels have hidden areas and challenges, and that the flower pictures at the end offer clues on how much of a level you’ve discovered. Have now replayed every level at least once. Finally fully completed one level last night. Very satisfying. One of the only games I play with the sound on. The controls sometimes go berserk when first entering a level, and sometimtes allow very subtle movement.
Hard to control, won’t save
I really, really wanted to love this game. Every now and then I find myself wanting a new relaxing game, and I really debated on this one because of the cost. I decided to go for it, and...ugh. I’m playing on my iPad Pro, and I will say that the graphics are beautiful. The controls, however, are REALLY hard to master. What makes it even worse is THE GAME DOESN’T SAVE. When I exit the game and come back to it later, I have to start from the very beginning again. I don’t want to keep playing the same 15 minutes of the game over and over. I was hoping this would be a relaxing game that would give me a little mental break from my day, but it’s just another frustration. Deleted. Adios, $4.99.
I like this app a great deal. I’m not sure I’d call it a game as much as a technology demo, but whatever you call it, it’s lovely and interesting. It’s short, but that’s ok, because it has decent replayability. If you like racing games, riding the wind can be pretty cool, and if you like meditative apps it’ll take you there too. I understand why some people might have trouble with the control scheme, but honestly, I didn’t. A little patience will get you anywhere the game world allows you to go. If you’re on the fence about this one, my 2¢ is: buy it.

Flower has changed my entire gaming experience. It’s absolutely gorgeous, and definitely worth the five bucks. I played the whole game in only two sittings. I give it five stars for absolute perfection, except for the fact it drains your battery (See, I would have played it in one sitting, but my device died in the process). This is understandable though, because the graphics and the details are stunning. This is truly a masterpiece.
