Description: A world where danger lurks under every leaf. Where real heroes don’t only climb up, but climb down too. Evolve, loot resources, and craft to conquer higher levels above the clouds. Why? To beat the most dangerous enemy, the spirit of the tree, and become one of the legendary Bean Stalkers.

Review: Trying to sum this unusual game up, it is kind of Jack and the Beanstalk the RPG. Each level takes place on a giant beanstalk and you will have to take down a small range of enemies all the while collecting resources and crafting new items. The graphics are not too bad at all and the sense of depth you get as you climb the beanstalk is amazing. But it does have procedurally-generated beanstalks so while no two levels are ever EXACTLY the same the gameplay does get a little tiresome after a few hours. I can’t see this game being worth the full £25.99 asking price, but if you grabbed it in a sale you might appreciate it a lot more than I did. Kudos does go to the developer for trying something new, I appreciated it for sure.
