Ease of Play

Saving Seeds starts pretty easy, but quickly ramps up the difficulty. But with persistence and the ability to learn from your mistakes, no levels are impossible.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Saving Seeds HD: Doodle Physics is a physics-based puzzle game for the iPad. Like Angry Birds and Cut the Rope, players must use geometry and physics to their advantage -- in this case, the goal is to put a falling seed into a flowerpot, where it will grow. This is achieved by drawing lines and using gravity and momentum. The game is very easy to control, but finding the right way to use your limited supply of ink can be tricky -- and will certainly be too frustrating for young players. High scores can be compared via OpenFeint, but the game does not offer any multiplayer component. A non-HD version called Saving Seeds: Doodle Physics is available for the iPhone and iPod touch.

Is it any good?

Physics games and iOS devices go together, but so far the emphasis in these games has been on cute and funny cartoon characters. Saving Seeds HD: Doodle Physics takes a different, slightly more mature, approach. It accomplishes this by offering a series of increasingly tough puzzles and rewarding you with a Zen-like moment of peace when you succeed, with calming music playing as you watch your seed(s) turn into flowers. It is, in fact, hard to get truly frustrated with the game, as the omnipresent lulling music is so effective at calming the player -- and perhaps sharpening their game. With more than 120 levels, there's a lot to play here. And like the titans of OS gaming, even when you finish, you'll want to go back and play it all over again.
