Fixed the game progress bug (hopefully for good). Really, really sorry for any frustration this has caused. This has been an elusive bug to fix, only affecting certain players on certain versions of iOS/Prune.

NOTE: This update will not restore lost progress. If you've been affected by this, please do not hesitate to contact me and I'll try my best to help.

Comments and Ratings for Prune

Beautiful and Haunting (1.0.68)

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.

Absolutely Love This Game, But, Could Use a Few Improvements (1.0.68)

I just started playing this game about a week ago and love it. It looks so simple but there's so much more than what it looks like. There's a few things though that I feel could make the game even better and address a couple of questions and issues. I was surprised to find out there was a "ceiling" and you can only go so far up. It would be great if it was indefinite to see how far you can actually go. I was also wondering what the different color "moons" or "suns" were, are they something you want to branch out as much as possible to? And the different colored diamonds in the sky. I noticed occasionally when there's a blue diamond a blue flower will bloom then just as quick disappear. I seem to notice when cutting branches the game doesn't respond to my swipe and sometimes it takes two or three times before it cuts. Lastly, are white branches a good thing? They seem to be a random thing. It would be great if these things could be explained in the opening of the game. Otherwise, I think it's a great game!

Was a good concept with a lot of potential. I wouldn't say it is $5 worth of game but if you can get it on a sale go for it. Definitely wasn't as fun or satisfying as i was lead on to believe. Would rather have my money back

Not enough bang for buck (1.0.68)

I love this game, it's very pretty and a super cool idea, I could play it for a very long time. Except the problem is there are only 5 'groups' with about 12 levels in each and once you finish those there's nothing else to do on the app. :/ Other than that though I love it.

Amazing (1.0.68)

At first, I didn't get this game. I am quite cautious about buying games, and at first I thought it was a total waste of money. BUT, in just 5 minutes, I was IN LOVE with this game. TOTALLY worth the price. ***note for authors, I expect more levels with higher difficulty***

pretty good (1.0.68)

recommend playing while listening to the interstellar soundtrack. the last level i didnt feel like i won because all of the blossoms didnt fully devolop before the game abruptly ended.

Beautiful!! (1.0.68)

Beautifully made with ambiance and art that leaves the player wanting more!! Like me. It's mysterious and addicting! I'm looking forward to new levels.

oh, and in case you didn't know - this game/experience deserves the hype (1.0.68)

One of my all time favorite'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

Good but.... (1.0.68)

I feel like for the amount of money I paid that there should be more than 5 worlds. Other than that it's fun to try to grow your tree to enormous heights

Not That good. (1.0.68)

Good game... just not $0.99 good. It could be a good free game.
