Game description

In Grow Home you play as BUD (Botanical Utility Droid), a robot on a mission to save his home planet by harvesting the seeds of a giant alien plant. On his quest BUD will discover a beautiful world of floating islands that are home to some rather strange plants and animals. 
Grow the giant plant and use your unique climbing abilities to reach ever higher ground, but be careful…one wrong move and it’s a long way down! 

Key Features 

Climbing: Procedural animation allows you to move BUD's hands independently, creating a unique and unrestricted climbing experience. 

Growing: Guide and ride the giant alien plant as you create your own pathways in the sky. Everything you grow can be climbed on. Use it as a bridge, a safety net, or simply as a tool for artistic expression. 

Exploration: Explore every nook and cranny of the alien world as you hunt and collect crystals that can enhance BUD's abilities. It’s a physical playground and many of the alien plants have unusual properties that can help you on your quest.

This game doesn't grow on you

I really thought I would enjoy this game more. My biggest issue with the game is that the robot controls are sluggish and imprecise. Watching the game's trailer video, you see BUD hopping from rock to rock and vine to vine, but that's practically impossible to do in actuality. BUD's movement capabilities are severely limited as any change in direction or speed is slow to occur. Controlling BUD is like flooring the accelerator in your car and having to wait 2 seconds for the car to actually start accelerating. Aside from the controls, growing the star plant never really became interesting. To grow the plant, you grab on to a red flower bud and a vine immediately begins to extend from the plant. The vines only grow so far, so you'll need to do this several times to reach distant locations. You start off having to connect the plant to 4 sources of food. Then the main plant grows taller and you repeat the process, always needing to connect it to more food sources than before. The final growth spurt requires you to connect to 8 sources of food, all of which are significantly spread apart so it takes many vines to reach each of them. There are crystals spread out among all the floating islands as you work your way to 2000 meters. Collecting crystals unlocks and enhances a jetpack ability for BUD, which is extremely helpful in navigating the Star Plant. Should you happen to fall, it can be a long way down before you hit something you can grab, and then you'll have a long trek back up. Checkpoints are spread throughout the environment and you can teleport between checkpoints, but they seem oddly congregated below 1000 meters, with only 2 above that point (at least, that's all I found). Lastly, every plant and animal you encounter can be scanned if you drag them to one of the checkpoint locations. I did this for a few items, but I found controlling BUD while he is trying to carry something was just too difficult to continue. The game isn't bad, per se, but ultimately you're just doing the same thing over and over again for 3 hours. Should you want the game to last longer, it sends you on a fetch quest to find 8 hidden seeds after you beat the game. (No thanks!)
