This isn’t going to be a very long post like most of the others I make and I would like to apologise for that. The thing is that, as great as it is, there isn’t much to say about this game. So I’m just going to explain what the game is, how you play it, and then just let you be the judge.

Okay, here goes. So, flower reaction is a fairly simple game to play; you have a bunch of tiny flowers that fly around the screen randomly, and you control one of those flowers which is your mouse cursor. When you left click, your flower mouse grows big and any of the flying flowers it touches grow big too and, in turn,  any flying flowers they touch start to grow as-well which can cause a kind of chain reaction if you position your flower mouse in just the right place and click at just the right time. That is probably why they named the game flower reaction in the first place.

Every flower that grows earns you a point; you need to try to get as many points as possible with a limited number of clicks. You can’t move your mouse for a while after you click so don’t think you can cheat the system and move your flower around as it grows. You only get three clicks so use them wisely.

The game is visually very pleasing with new coloured flowers coming in as you play and the way they shine as they grow is quite nice too. They even have a little soundtrack in the background (careful though, its loud!). You have the option of muting the soundtrack if you like so you can focus entirely on the visual aspect of it, or enjoy both the music and the visuals.

Of course the game isn’t just sights and sounds; it is a head scratcher too. Remember, you want to maximise your points with your limited clicks. So make sure you pay attention, wait and click at the exact right moment for the best chain reaction.

Go ahead and check out the game for yourself . Sadly you can only play the game on a computer not a mobile device; but don’t let that dissuade you, go ahead and play. Forget about everything else, relax, have fun and get a high score, live in the moment, at least for now.
