    Did you already finish it?
     
  3. Yep. :) I started early, though. Got an advanced copy. But finished it today along with my review. Top notch stuff.

    It's not a long game if you sit down and crunch it, like I did. But I did so because I really enjoyed it from beginning to end.

    Does the game thrown in more mechanics in later levels?

    I'd say there is kind of a "theme" mechanic (or complication, if you will) for each of the five chapters.

    Also: Congrats to the developers on the AppStore feature.

    Yes. I was actually really surprised at how challenging some of them were. I want to actually go back to one of the levels bc I feel like I sort of cheated it. But you can also skip a level and come back to it, which a lot of developers forget/neglect to offer.

    Here's my review if you want to know more details. But I purposely left parts of it vague:

    For those playing who want some less vague help/hints/secrets, I compiled this little guide: http://www.appunwrapper.com/2015/07/24/prune-walkthrough-guide/

    Holy shit! The screenshots in your review are enough to sell me on the game, it looks gorgeous! :eek:
     
  10. Like I said, it was tempting to just post a bunch of screenshots instead of a review. :p

    Well, I launched the game and loved it from the very beginning. So I kept playing and got to level 2-11 when it crashed. No big deal, I thought, let's launch it again. Imagine my surprise when the tutorial appeared. Apparently you just lose all your progress if the app process happens to close one way or another. Such a disappointment. I think I'll try playing it again in a month or two, but for right now this kinda made me lose interest in the game.

    The game is phenomenal! Atmospheric & Tranquil! From the art style to the simple swiping controls, this game is more than words could describe!

    Developer here--thanks for the kind words you guys!

    OrangeJews: Oh no!! Soo sorry about that! If you can give me any more details that would be great. (eg - device, iCloud on or off?)

    Yeah, sure. I'm running it on an iPad Air with iOS 8.1. iCloud is on.

    Nooooooo :(

    I just finished the game but I want more. I loved every second of it. the slicing mechanic to snip you tree and choose the direction it grows in works really well.
    brilliant game well recommended to pick up.
     
  19. Replay it and and try to make taller trees. ;)
