My Review of Botanicula
Botanicula is a point-and-click adventure game where you control five inhabitants of a tree, a feather, a lantern, a mushroom, a poppyhead, and a twig. They are on a mission to plant a seed before the tree they live in becomes completely infected by a scary parasite spider that is sucking all the life out of it. Along the way they meet many other creatures living in the tree and they all help each other survive and thrive.
I enjoyed playing Botanicula. I had trouble with some of the puzzles. The story was heart-warming, though may be scary for young children.
My Achievements from Botanicula
I completed all of the Botanicula Steam achievements.
I used the following guides and videos to help me complete the game:
- Gamezebo – Botanicula Walkthrough
- Fredericma45 Gaming – Botanicula playlist (Walkthrough and achievements)
- gamingTA – Botanicula playlist (10 achievements)
- crackbiscuit Botanicula – Svolavac achievement
But it appears I missed some things. At the end of the game, I was told that I had collected 113 out of 123 creature cards. And I was able to view two ending cutscenes. I assume, had I gotten them all there would have been a third.
