    Love it! It looks great, is well designed, and the game is challenging but simple to pick up. Great work!

    Awesome Zen stuff!!! Art is so pleasant to look at (programmers, learn! =))) Very relaxing and nice!

    I liked it a lot! Best use of audio I've seen so far. I loved the atmosphere.

    Very nice! The background art is beautiful, but blurred enough to not be distracting. It was occasionally frustrating when a flower would pop up, open, and promptly close again right from under my sprite. I like that it happened, it just seemed to happen a bit much.

    But as I said, overall very good.

    Fun game, amazing graphics and never ever seen gameplay idea :P finally something, which I have never seen in any other game.

    Simple. Beautiful. Beautifully executed. Controls are great. Mood is perfect. Multiple "sprite" sprites is a good touch.

    Like a lot of games with edges, I had issues with my sprites being hit by flies before I could react. This is not unique to your game. I just need to learn to keep my sprites away from the edge.

    More of this. More from you. Please. :)

    I really liked it. The music and gameplay was good and it quickly became challenging. Loved the graphics!

    Definitely one of the above average games, I enjoyed this one.

    A lovely, highly polished and relaxing game that I feel I am somehow unworthy of - first I tried to kill the flowers with my fan, then I tried to attack the bees, then I started pondering the sexual implications of what I was doing, helping pollenate plants :P

    Jokes aside, this game stands out from the others - in particular I love that you can rescue sprites by catching them just before they go off the screen, kind of like a second chance.

    Some 'Limbo'-esque subtle animations to the background would be nice, but otherwise, an amazing job!

    Very well done! 4/5!

    I rather liked it. Difficult, and it felt like it'd be nice for you fan to have a hint more range, but overall good!

    Very nice! It's so beautiful and soothing and then the beetle flies through WTF!

    I could totally see playing this on the iPad or iPhone.

    Awesome. I loved the musical cues, what a great way to let me know when another dude is falling. Well done all around.

    Wow, this is great! Simple, challenging, visually appealing! Thanks!

    Zero-button game! Nice! Just need to change the starting and finishing clicks into gestures. =)

    Very nice artwork, animation, sound, and music. All the assets are splendid. The gameplay was definitely challenging on a trackpad. Some of those little sprites just came rocketing down from the sky, and juggling a half dozen was fine until a flower closed or a bug came flying through. Nice mix of plausible elements.

    It'd be nice if flowers didn't close when a sprite was in proximity, kind of like how a Piranha Plant will stop coming out of a pipe if Mario's standing next to it.

    Relaxing game. Nice visuals and innovative game idea.

    An enchanted experience =D. A nice take on the theme, very moody, great mechanics. Congratulations and thank you, I really enjoyed playing your game.

    wow, great flow! I like how you used the first flower and little sprite dude to confirm what you just learned from the instructions. And thanks for including the source. Such a small game but so much fun. Definitely a keeper. Well done

    So nice and relaxing... well, until that fly/bee thing comes and tiny broken bodies litter the floor!

    Very polished entry, and VERY good sound and music. Best sound and music I've seen in the whole competition so far! Great mood and graphics too.

    Very good realization ! The game feels very quiet, but is not as easy at it look at first :)

    This is really well done. It starts out nice and slow, and ramps up quickly enough to stay interesting without being too impossible. Nice job.

    Really cute little game. Felt very much like an orisinal game, in a good way! Good job!

    Very challenging! More than I actually thought it would be. Juggling 6 of those little suckers while the flowers aren't in bloom is tough! Good work!

    Very fun and, I think, appropriately challenging. Awesome audio and atmosphere.
