AppTastic Tuesday: Prune

August 25, 2015

Prune is a really fun and enjoyably challenging game for iOS.

It’s got a simple, minimalist, beautiful design. David Sparks of MacSparky even used a screenshot from the game for his iPad lock screen!

You start with a screen like this:

Then you swipe up to start your tree growing.

You can pinch to zoom to get a closer look, which you will need as your tree grows in multiple directions. When it is time to prune the tree, which you do to get it to grow toward the light, just swipe your finger across the branch you wish to cut, and it will fall off.

You beat a level by pruning to create the predetermined amount of blossoms on your tree.

The graphics, music, and sound effects are all beautiful and relaxing.

You will want to avoid things like red suns, or your beloved tree burns up:

But like this

Once you spend the $3.99 on the app, there are no further in-app purchases or ads.

One might be forgiven for wondering how engaging an app with this premise can be, but it really is fun to play. Apart from its gorgeous design and responsive controls, users will quickly find they are eager to make progress through the game’s various levels. Prune came recommended, and it’s been even better than expected.

Find it in the App Store here.
