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.
As suspected, CCleaner is most likely the cause of the "disappearing" savefiles. A helpful fellow Amazonian pointed out the following in the comments:
On the Reflexive forum people are saying it's caused by registry/system cleansers like CCleaner which deletes the .sol 'save game' files. In particular it appears it's just these two files:
C:\Documents and Settings\<name>\Application Data\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\EDF8QSZ8\localhost\TGTConfig_cookie.sol
C:\Documents and Settings\<name>\Application Data\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\EDF8QSZ8\localhost\TGTPlayer01_cookie.sol
My main computer is in the shop so thanks to Amazon policy of keeping our game purchases in a permanent database, I decided to reinstall The Great Tree and finish it completely. Yes, as others have mentioned, the gameplay is repetitive. I have a problem with this argument since almost all games are repetitive. Moving from one environment to the next killing people in your typical shooter or killing baddies and upgrading your gear in your typical rpg doesn't seem much different than moving from one environment to the next collecting pollen, killing baddies, and upgrading your abilities in this game. The difficulty ramps up slowly but don't be fooled by the relative ease of the first hour's trial. There are 100 levels to complete and as you get deeper into the game things get really hectic. Creatures hang down from the sky waiting to grab you and whisk you away to their lair (instant death). Giant caterpillars somehow shoot you with electricity out of their antennae. Even certain plants spit sap that will make you drop all of your pollen if touched. Nature is not this little faerie's friend.
Upped the review to four stars. It's a simple game with great art, responsive controls, and an interesting premise that's easy to learn but difficult to master. As a bonus, you'll be an expert on the mouse by the time you've finished. Definitely worth a try if you're tired of the many hidden-object or time management games being churned out.
All in all, it's a refreshingly different game and no one can go wrong with the $6.99 download price. Highly recommended and as an added bonus, it will train you to use your mouse quickly and accurately. Music is appropriate and relaxing as is gameplay (until you get to the higher levels!).
A nice game to just sit back and play with. BTW, I had no problem "losing" my progress as some other reviewers said happened. When I go back to the game it has me right where I left off the last time.
It's got a decent amount of levels, it has some role-play like elements (stats, wings that you can equip), and a nice difficulty curve, and some good stick style play with using your attacks to chain combo bonuses and further attacks.
On the downside, two items stick out to me-
There's no native resolution for widescreen monitors.
The narrator for the little plot sequences that happen every so often- sucks.
So, overall, like 4.875 out of 5 stars.
Apart from that, I do enjoy the game. I played to level 46 before my history was wiped out. The graphics are pretty, the game is easy to learn & I like the background story.
GREAT GAME for young kids too. I loved this game.
And by the way...there are a bunch of bugs in this game with windows 7, 64 bit O.S. so beware you'll have some crashed games but nothing that will hurt your computer. Why they can't get it right is amazing to me.
