Sunflowers has made its way onto the Playstation Vita. Could you possibly go wrong with a game that only cost $3.99?
This game is very simple once you get the hang of it, and it makes a great game to pick up and play while on the go.
The main goal of this game is to collect all of the flowers for your garden collection. There are over 100 different varieties of flower to collect for each landscape. You can choose between two landscapes, classic and tropical. Some flowers are rarer than others, so they can take some time to find them.
Your job in this puzzle game is to control the sun to grow the sprouting buds below. You can move the sun by sliding your finger along the touch screen. Tapping the screen will cause the sun will produce a ray of light. Shooting sun beams through clouds will cause a water droplet to fall below.
Light beams will catch flowers on fire if they do not first pass through a cloud. Passing a single sun beam through multiple clouds will cause bigger raindrops, which in turn means faster growing.
Sun beams passing though a lightning cloud while cause your flower to be damaged, and possibly destroyed. Once three flowers have been destroyed, it is game over. So you will want to be sure to aim for those good clouds!
As you collect flowers, you will go through different seasons. Spring, Winter, Summer and Fall. During these different seasons you will come across different types of flowers.
Every flower you collect will get put into your visual garden. From there you can send flowers via Near to other friends. You also have the option to mix breed two different flowers. I was able to cross pollinate several different varieties of flowers. Some of them gave me flowers I didn’t have yet, while others just gave me the same old flowers I already had. It’s worth playing around with to see what flower you end up getting though!
So the main goal is to collect flowers? What’s so good about that?
Yes, this game is very simple minded. You pass beams through clouds to make raindrops, which in turn grows flowers. Sometimes simple is the way to go, especially for a game on the go. I personally found this game very addicting. It’s just like all the other addicting puzzle games; it leaves you wanting to improve every time! On the downside, the goal is always the same. Don’t let your flowers die, and go as long as you can. If you get bored easily with games like this, then you may not enjoy this game very long.
Sunflowers is very crisp and visually appealing as well. It simply looks amazing on the PS Vita’s OLED screen. This game showcases bright and vivid colors to really showcase those flowers. You couldn’t ask for much more on the graphics side of things.
The sound and music in this game has also been done real well. The background music is very relaxing and goes well with the game setting.
One thing this game really missed out on was the social side of things. There are no leader boards of any type, and there is no kind of head to head multiplayer. These things would make the game truly feel complete, but the game is still great either way.
Overall, this game is very fun to play. You will find yourself lost in time as you play Sunflowers. Gameplay is very addicting, graphics are clear and crisp, and it’s a title that everyone with a PS Vita should have. Who can go wrong with a game for only $3.99?
