4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful game! March 2, 2009
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
First thing to say is this game is absolutely beautiful to look at. It truly is a work of art and interacting with it is delightful! This isn't a difficult game but it is fun and can be picked up pretty quickly with just a few minutes of practice.

Has a bit of an RPG element in that you can choose which skills to upgrade as you progress and change "wing sets" to give you special abilities. The only thing I don't really care for personally is the cut-scenes (who really does), although they do carry forward a somewhat interesting story and gratefully they are short.

I find it rather relaxing compared to a shooter or standard RPG. It's simple and elegant in it's game play. Pick this one up if you fancy a mildly challenging game or you have fantasies of being Fairy Folk. You won't regret it. Worth the $6.99 price tag.

5.0 out of 5 stars May I have another!! June 19, 2009
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is exactly what I needed. The mouse lets you become the fairy with all the fun that comes with flying, battling rather odd bugs and bad guys. The spidermen made me laugh, and the black and red creepies made me mad. Why aren't there more games like this one Reflexive?

The artwork is beautiful, sometimes I get distracted and get my butt kicked, but what a way to die (lol). I maxed out on the scoring 16M. Even the muscle man at the intro is fun to watch.

Thank you Reflexive.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The game itself is fun, for what it does. It's a simple game involving a faerie who needs to fly around the screen collecting pollen for the Great Tree. As you do this, a backstory unfolds of creatures being captured, possible treachery and so on. As you collect pollen, you start to develop a long ponytail. When it gets long enough, a sound prompt lets you know you have collected the maximum you are able. When maxed out you can then attack the various other creatures flying about to increase your score. Otherwise you need to avoid them or you'll lose your pollen and health until you've lost a life. As you advance in levels, you earn points you can spend on improving your strength, health, agility, and magic power. You also earn special "wings" of various colors you can use to assist in various ways depending on which wings you choose to use.

The game itself is rather unique and the faerie you control responds well to your mouse movements. The background song, while repetitive after a while, is still catchy and pleasant to listen to. I have only one problem with this game. Twice now it has completely erased all my saved data for no apparent reason forcing me to start over from the beginning. The first time I wasn't very far so I didn't mind too much, however this last time I almost finished the game. I won't be repeating all these hours for a third time, especially since I don't know the cause. I use CCleaner frequently to clean all the, well you know, on my computer and it's possible the program is identifying player data as temporary file and deleting. It's just a guess and outside of this I can't speculate on any other reason why I keep losing my player data on my Windows XP system so I'm uninstalling it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whimsical,beautifully presented April 23, 2009

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is an awesome looking game for this price.The graphics are beautiful!
The game play is also fun,and inventive.
It is a gentle diversion from real life,which ain't so whimsical and beautifully presented at times.
I'm glad I purchased it. Good for adults and older kids,I think.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful meets Boring May 12, 2009
Platform for Display:PC Download
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The game itself is beautiful and stunning and I could look at it forever, but the gameplay is very limited. As a fairy you collect pollen while avoiding harms way, and you are limited to the screen. There really isn't much to this game, it's very basic, but again, very beautiful.

3.0 out of 5 stars This is it? September 24, 2009
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I played the game and enjoyed it pretty much. It was different. The ending was rather lame. I expected the last level to be much harder and "dangerous", but it went really quickly and was over before I knew it. I don't know if I will play it again for quite awhile, tho.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love the great tree! June 12, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I had this game loaded on my previous computer, the kids & grand-kids love it (as do I!). When that machine gave me it's all, I sadly lost this game :( Luckily I did a search & found it once again :) for ...7 bucks???? Sold!!! For hours of relaxation, or a needed brain exercise (hand/eye coordination), or a rainy day entertainer. Amazon never lets me down!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Game
I love the art work in this game and it is an fun game to play, but a bit repetitious. It is a good game to play when you just want to relax.
