  • oh, and in case you didn't know - this game/experience deserves the hype

    One of my all time favorite games...it's just so perfect in every way...the craft/art that went into this game/project by the dev and musician is one of the all-time greatest achievements in IOS gaming...imo, it changed every notion you could have about an iOS game, and the kind of game devs could make...this is like that masterpiece album that influenced a new generation of game developers with a strong visual presence, combining a timely thought provoking message and innovative gameplay. This is an essential for any iOS library. The score is unbelievably haunting, uplifting and beautiful at difference times within the game...the final 'level' or sequence can bring me to happy tears of joy. Update: developer deserves praise for awesome customer support which is so refreshing to see...this guy can do it all, and seems like one of the nicest people....seriously, support this game if you are discovering for the first time
  • Proof That Games Are Art

    All I can say is... wow. This game is so much more than just about cutting branches and growing flowers or whatever. It is a story; a story about life, how no matter what obstacle life encounters, it will find a way to survive and continue. And I have never felt so emotionally impacted by a game in my life, besides Shadow of the Colossus. For example, sometimes, I complete a level while the “red” stuff, whatever it is, is infecting my tree, and, even though I completed the level, I feel a pang of sadness as I know that that tree will spend the rest of its days as a red husk, unable to produce flowers or do anything other than sit there as a testimony to the red infection. I have never felt like this towards a game, ever; this is a game about GROWING TREES, for Pete’s sake. And yet it managed to pull on my heartstrings as though I could feel everything the trees felt in the game. Easy five stars, amazing game.

    I absolutely adore everything about your game— the music and sound effects are so calming and add a tangibility to all the on screen actions. The art design is easily my favorite part— the use of color as a guide throughout the different levels is really clever. Keeping the game mechanics straightforward helped me feel engaged with the game while still being able to actively enjoy the unique and beautiful world you created. Two of my all time favorite console games are Flower and Journey, and you have managed to evoke the sense of calm and focus I get with those games. I have not encountered a mobile game I have enjoyed as much as yours. I hope you keep making games, and I will definitely keep an eye out for them in the future! Thank you for your game!
  • Short, But Sweet and Meaningful

    Title describes the game really. When I got to the end, I had a feeling I knew what was gonna happen & when it happened it was even better and such a full circle I felt. I just thought, "Whoaaaaa." I felt so proud. I learned so much from this game. You'll know what I mean when you play it, which I recommend you do. I've played it only once through but in the future perhaps I'll play again & take my time to try pruning differently so I can achieve some neat looking trees. I felt like the first time I was still learning and ended chopping the branches off into stubs, desperately trying to save my tree. Anyway play it. It's 3.99 but like my bf said, you're paying for an experience. And a great experience it was!
  • Beautiful and Haunting

    The Music, the design, everything about this game was so amazing that I can't stop thinking about it. I also see a meaning in it: as I progressed, the game got more difficult but also, the themes became more industrialized and the trees became further down underground; it became more difficult for them to reach the light and people probably forgot about nature. In the last level, everything was shaking and the world was overtaken with red (nuclear holocaust of the human race?) and then everything was dead. And there was a tree, showing that life still continues. I found it to be an incredibly strong metaphor that induced such a strong emotional, mental, and even spiritual reaction from me.
  • Symbolic?

    By Gm1234gm
    I found this to be a beautifully designed game. Not just the minimalist graphics and dramatic score, but it also seemed symbolic to me. Maybe I'm reading too much into a game, but it seemed like you're being taught life lessons like you must shed old beliefs to grow (pruning), you'll be drawn to toxic people but if you let them in, they'll destroy you (the red circle), some people need coaxing to grow, couples should grow together... Again, probably reading too much into it. As for game play, it starts out easy and gets more challenging as you maneuver obstacles and try to figure out how to keep your tree going. Recommended for those wanting a slower paced game.

    Yes it is VERY simple to play but you may find yourself trying to decipher some of the colors and effects of some of the levels. It took me 2 days to make it through the game but now I'm going back for blue flowers and to try to reach the sun etc. I would love to see some instructions added. Maybe the option to turn on or off a point system. I like the non complicated nature of it but I don't think it would be diminished with clarification and points. Maybe a second game with different challenges? Would definitely buy a second version guys! If you build it, I will come!
  • It’s art is lovely at least...

    I really enjoyed the art style of simplified colors to tell you what to avoid and the objective is, it lends itself well to the interesting gameplay mechanic of letting the tree grow and pruning it back to avoid obstacles. I enjoyed all the levels and trying to get the blue flowers as the challenge but it’s way too short. I beat this game under three hours and I’m not that great at puzzle games to begin with. Then add on another hour just to go back and get the blue flowers, plus I wish there was more of incentive to even want to get the blue flowers like a different cutscene or something. I overall really enjoyed the concept and gameplay but really hope they come out with more levels in the next update.

    I have had this game in my wish list for a while and I finally decided to download it. I couldn't be happier. I have only played it for about 5 minutes but I absolutely love it. I am by no means a "gamer" and I don't play a lot of games on my phone but I do like to have some in standby while I'm waiting or on a plane or whatnot. This game is peaceful and relaxing. There are no time limits or things to beat. Just grow your tree and prune it so it reaches the sun. The music is just perfect and Zen. Need I say more. If you're into peaceful, relaxed type games....this is it.
  • An enticing idea, an imperfect execution

    By E.S.S.
    The goal of Prune is to grow and prune trees around obstacles until the tips reach a certain destination. Unfortunately, this tends to result in fewer “visually stunning” trees and more long, vine-line ropes reaching for a target. The minimalist design is pretty and soothing, but occasionally makes the game confusing. Also, once you unlock the blue level replays, the game will automatically zoom out when you’ve completed the original level objective, even if you’re in the middle of trying to complete the new one. Some aspects of the game are time sensitive, so this can be unwelcome if it happens at an inconvenient time.
