While some of its puzzle flow can be hit-or-miss, The Sundew delivers an entertaining graphic adventure. While I hate to see the sound design miss the mark so badly, genre fans should enjoy pointing and clicking their way through this tale's surprises.
Drenched in the sci-fi dystopian rainfall, The Sundew emerges with admirable ambition. Join Anna Isobe as she's tasked with an objective that will change her life forever. Be sure to bring a little brainpower and intuition; this is a game not for the faint of mental puzzle-solving.
The Sundew isn’t perfect; every so often I ended up shaking my fist at its list of tasks, mocking me with its empty boxes, knowing full well some of them were entirely dependent on others. But this pixel-based point-and-click adventure still had me hooked to the end. All the more remarkable for being a solo effort, The Sundew is a real treat for adventure fans, cyberpunk aficionados or anyone who’s sick of being a chirpy chosen one.
The Sundew is an interesting, if short, adventure game. It has its rough edges, but it accomplishes what it seeks, which is to be an enjoyable and interesting experience.

Except for the visual style which you can count among the best of pixel art designs in the world of video games, The Sundew doesn’t do anything mind-blowing or innovative in its other aspects but it still tells an intriguing, if a little cliché, cyberpunk story and couples it with a classic point-and-click gameplay with good logical puzzles.

Overall The Sundew is a strong and engaging point and click adventure game with a compelling story and enough strong puzzles to keep players scratching their chins for its run time. Fans of the genre will find things to love here, and the fact that it comes from a one person development team makes it all the more impressive.
