Reaching for Petals does a good job at grabbing your attention from the very start with a narrator that sounds like honey trickling over gravel…

If you're in search of something aesthetically pleasing, I think you'll find a lot to like here. From the voice work to the visuals and especially the score, Petals' presentation shines. If you're looking for a more hard-hitting game in the same genre, however, there are certainly better options out there.

Ultimately, because of Reaching for Petals' short running time, it feels more like a tech demo than an actual, fully-formed video game experience.

Reaching for Petals has an attractive story and with the perfect use of Unreal Engine 4, visually, it has become one of the best games of the year. If only the developers devoted more time to the gameplay, then we would've recommended the experience to every player.
