My daughter thinks the best part of this game is the Sprouts address you "Oh great one!" It's a Little People game with beautiful graphics and atmosphere. And she has hit on the heart of the game...it's about enjoying the little Sprouts. Sprouts is an immersive world where you need to hang for a while. Meet your Sprouts need for food, sleep, motivation and curiosity and they will work diligently for you but slowly. Nothing happens quickly here. Move the Sprouts onto rocks, flowers or butterflies and they may grant you karma points "Oh great one, this is for you!" Earning karma points gives you spells such as lightening, making the sun shine, or rain fall. Slowly very slowly the Sprouts build structures and invent things to meet quests and inch toward the end game and the end game was okay. But this is a game where you're supposed to enjoy the journey. There's something sweet and addictive about watching the Sprouts work and play. They cry "Whee!" when they're having fun. And say "I'm so bored." if their motivation or curiosity gets too low. Every Sprout pink or blue sounds like a teen boy and they don't seem to have individual personalities. Yet the game is filled with individual sounds like rain fall that made me keep coming back until the end.
