Lunar Flowers is an ethereal experience based in a fantastical land with certain elements of Chinese mythology. You guide a nameless, silent princess on her quest to complete the moon after it is destroyed by the dark magic of purple flowers. The princess comes across several puzzles. Many of these are in the form of random petals scattered across the sky which must be connected in the right way. So basically, join the dots. Others require you to complete puzzles with hints which can be found in the surrounding statues Clues for how to join them rest in tiny details in the game environment.
The problem here is that the puzzles are way too easy to pose any real challenge to the gamer. This, unfortunately, makes it feel like lesser of a game than a beautifully illustrated storybook. Lunar Flowers has the most breathtaking art and music. The art reminds one of Monument Valley in terms of how delicate and detailed it is. This game doesn’t offer intellectual stimulation but definitely pleases the eye and the ear.
