    The laidback atmosphere and gentle flower tending hide a game that is far too predictable and frustrating to offer any lasting entertainment.

    All in all, The Undergarden is definitely a game that is to be avoided by puzzle enthusiasts, ultra violent droogies, or people who like to be given a clear purpose before giving anything their attention.

    Think Flow meets the Teletubbies with a drizzle of Gardener's Question Time, so long as the question is 'can I blow up those rocks with exploding fruit?' Brilliantly, the answer is yes, as you drag your chubby little pixie through underwater caves, pollinating flowers and solving puzzles using different fruits. Some float, some sink, some power machines with electricity, and all have to be pulled around behind you, which is weirdly both relaxing and satisfying. Watching the flora burst into life at your touch is so pretty you can imagine them prescribing this to the violently deranged as therapy: 'There Roger, watch the little pixie and put the machete down, eh?' There's not much depth, but plenty of eye candy, puzzling and cute. Full Review »
