REVIEW: Potata: Fairy Flower on Xbox One


Review by Jon Donnis
I was a sent a review copy of Potata by the good people at Sometimes You.

Potato is a side-scrolling fantasy game, you play as the character Potata, a witch that wants to explore the world. This is an Indie title, but comes across as very mainstream, with its incredible graphics and fun game play.

The game can be quite challenging, but not so much so that it would put anyone off.
Each level has things to collect, and puzzles to solve. You start off by heading off to search for ingredients for her mothers soup, which is to help Potato's pet fox who is sick, and of course as you head off that is where you get yourself into trouble and the adventures begin.


As you progress through the game, you get lovely cut scenes which help tell the story.

At no point does the game seem too repetitive, and although challenging, it never comes across as frustrating, which is always a hard balancing act for any game to walk.

The Good
Beautiful graphics, great sounds, fun smooth game play.

The Bad
Some of the puzzles are ridiculously hard, even the first one had me stumped, but you can spend tokens to get help, but you might find yourself looking for online guides for help more than perhaps you should.

Summary
A fun game, that although challenging is not one you will want to give up on.

Potata: fairy flower will be released on Xbox One and PlayStation®4 on May 13’th!
Price is £14.99/£14.99 everywhere!
