Grow: Song of the Evertree Review
Grow: Song of the Ever tree PS4 Review
When we presented preview Grow: Song of the Ever tree, we noticed that the game was a hybrid of Fern gully and Animal Crossing. Well, on November 16, the game is launched and everything we observed before always holds. Our preliminary version was on PC and this time we played the PS4 version on PS5. The game is just as relaxing on console than on PC.
In terms of configuration of history and gameplay, Ever tree is Animal Crossing Crossover with Star dew Valley. In the game, you are the last of the Ever heart Alchemists. As such, you are responsible for taking care of the Ever tree. This care is vital because the worlds reside in the branches of the tree. A disease has fallen on the Ever tree, and it is now a simple young tree of its former glory. Your mission is not only to restore the Ever tree, but also the many lost worlds.
Your trip will not be fast. There are many tasks to accomplish and a lot of knowledge is lost. To do this, explore the world and expand your skills. Perhaps, just perhaps, will also redeliver lost knowledge that can give Evergreen and Malaria their glory of yesteryear. However, no clock requires you to finish the game. This means that you can take your time to restore the world.
Two paths to success
The game takes place in Malaria, a formerly prosperous world that has been fed by the many branches of the Ever tree. The evergreen formerly majestic does not bloom anymore. The Ever tree has reduced to a simple young tree. To further complicate things, you must rediscover the lost knowledge of what has grown the Ever tree.
You start the game by agriculture, which requires you to take care of the Earth with the help of tools you make, such as false, mornings and axes. To start agriculture, you ride your faithful Destroyer, Kabuki. Kabuki is a winged creature resembling a Pokémon. Since the chief town, Kabuki will take you to the branches. Each branch holds a city that comes with a default name, or you have the opportunity to rename the city according to your desires. Landing, you must restore each new plot. This involves cutting weeds, planting seeds and watering them. As diversion, there are caves to explore. They take you underground where you can solve puzzles and find treasures. Once you have restored a piece of land, other activities, such as construction and fishing, challenges and quests are unlocked. These new opportunities allow you to customize villages and communities, increasing the health of the Ever tree.
As Ever tree grows, the seeds of the world become available. At this stage of the game, two paths become available. You can either grow or explore and increase your skills in alchemy. These two activities are the basis and strength of this game. With the tasks of agriculture and community building, you stay pretty well in the same place, while alchemy is to be moving and exploring. Both paths are complementary and both offer the player of substantial rewards and systems. As a general rule, you will explore during the day and make the farm overnight. You can rest at night, but you do not need it.
With your alchemy capabilities, you can use these seeds to grow new worlds in the branches of the Ever tree. These new worlds include familiar environments such as forest, ice and desert. By doing this, you will meet new people, you will find friendship with a variety of very cute animals. To help you on your travels, several companions. First there is Copper top and Book, which serve you with sources of knowledge. On a more practical level, help comes from citizens of Malaria, Ever kin. They teach you how to manufacture and use tools to cultivate and build.
a state of mind of growth
The paths of agriculture and alchemy are both presented with lush and colorful visuals. This style gives the game an impression of very Japanese RPG. With the music, the game gives off a very relaxed atmosphere. This is a game that allows you to relax and relax rather than having to excite yourself to fight or enter an increased state to put your muscular memory and your reflexes on alert. There is no fight anywhere in this game.
With the preliminary version, developers urged us to use a controller to test its friendliness. The results were excellent and the same goes for the PS4 version. Orders are reactive and easy to understand. The only small problem, and this can be enough to turn off some players, is the constant cycle from top to bottom of the menu system to access the necessary actions commands. The game developer, Prideful Sloth, emphasizes the marriage of narrative and detailed construction in the world. It's a great game for players who just want to relax or for parents looking for a safe game for their children.
