Games Review

PRUNE ****

Polyculture, iOS, Android

While playing taxing games can be great fun and hugely rewarding, sometimes you just want to unwind and enjoy a game for its beauty and simplicity. Prune is a great example of this and while it has its difficult moments, it’s ultimately very simple to pick up and play. With great graphic and sound design, you prune a plant as it grows, trying to guide it past obstacles to the sunlight where it will blossom. It’s very zen indeed, and it’s also available in Welsh.

EVER OASIS *****

Grezzo, 3DS

Undoubtedly one of the best games to be released on the console, this charming game mixes elements of RPG and management in a similar style to Stardew Valley, just in a more developed style. You manage a town – an oasis in a desert – and build it up, attracting villagers to settle and set up shop. These villagers ask you to carry out quests, with plenty of side quests and exploration of Zelda-esque dungeons. It’s good fun and a great blend of genres that’s sure to keep all sorts of gamers entertained. LOB
