  • Summary: While not fully realistic (they're very forgiving), your succulents will require some maintenance and can die from over- or under-watering. Name your favorite plants, give them special care and attention, and they might even flower for you.

    It’s a difficult thing to put a score to. A normal free experience might be valued against the other things you could be spending your time on, but this isn’t something you’ll interact with very often. Give it a try and see if it resonates with you, but don’t expect to fall in love.

    The game is best experienced as an occasional therapeutic exercise.

    You won’t find anything that’s truly groundbreaking here, but you may find a relaxing experience if you’re the type of person that’s always wanted to grow a desk plant but just haven’t had luck with the real-world variety.

    Viridi is a poor experience throughout. A plant growing simulator in name only,

    First of all, it's not a growing simulator! Rather, it's an interactive screen saver or a relaxing app.
    I've been playing it for 20 hours.

    I've been playing it for 20 hours. How does it look?
    Once a week or two I remember about it (or more often when I'm stressed), open the "game", water flowers, remove weeds, plant new flowers and enjoy by watching the pot with pleasant music. That's all.

    This game is for plant fans. You get a little garden and you can plant things and its a cozy little experience that you can check in on daily.This game is for plant fans. You get a little garden and you can plant things and its a cozy little experience that you can check in on daily. It's not a game you'd actually "play" but rather like an actual plant just with a fraction the amount of work involved in actually growing a plant.

    I'd love to give it a higher rating but frankly it works FAR better on IOS.

    A beautiful game with lovely music, great for running in the background. Has a few problems, but they are minor, mostly control related, andA beautiful game with lovely music, great for running in the background.

    Slow paced game of waiting flowers to grow in a pot while playing calm music in the background.
    It might not be what you want, but could be just what you need.

    It's a different kind of a game, and requires patience unlike seen in other mainstream game genres. Might even stretch a bit the old concept of "game". Bonus points for being outside of all that's already seen. It's free to play and deal includes some free seeds for beginners, but all extra costs cents or more.
