Pros and cons of Prune app for iPhone and iPad

Prune app good for

Worth every cent. Looking forward to seing more stuff from you guys!
Great design and quite unique gameplay, very relaxing. A bit expensive though
This game is so beautiful - its just very relaxing and simplistic, plus the music matches the feeling of the game really well. It might be a little more on the expensive side of things but if youre looking for a more innovative puzzler to take your mind off of things, you should go for it!
A great looking game that quickly becomes addictive. More levels would be nice at some point. Until then, Im gladly paying some money to see a beautifully designed game (both the visuals and the sound).
I really enjoy this game. It blurs the line between what is art and what is a game well. The music and ambient sounds are great. The only drawback might be the starting pricepoint.
Its a soothing game, even when its a bit frustrating to get through some levels. Yes, it has levels, its a bit disappointing this turned out to be a puzzle per stage type of game rather than just a free for all grow whatever tree you like. Nowhere in the description does it say this was a puzzle game, so now you know, its a tree growing puzzle game to bloom flowers.

Some bad moments

A little faster moving then I anticipated - thought it would be more meditative - and like another reviewer said, it gets old fast
I must be missing something, I find this app slow, boring and very repetitive. Not interesting, nor creative. The same thing comes up over and over again, boring. I could find no instructions, maybe I am missing something, but for now this was a waste of money.
The performance on my iPad mini 4 is unbearable. I just dont understand how such a simple 2d game runs at less than 20fps. Its so choppy that I feel nauseous after one stage.
If this game was free I would say it was great but for the price I would expect more levels from it or even a create your own option.
But finished the game disappointed. I agree with the other review, the industrial feel to the later levels of the game didnt go where I expected. Just feel like the game shouldve taken a different direction and would have had better results. The idea was really cool, the execution was kind of meh. Oh and the game is too short for what it costs. This feels like it should be more of a $3, not the $5 it is now. Even at that price point I hesitate to recommend it.
For the price, I would expect to play more than two hours. Also agree with other reviews : not very relaxing, and were cutting trees, not actually making them grow. We should be able to slow down time, perhaps even stretch one game through several days, like a virtual bonsaï trimming game. Not what I expected, and paid too much.
