There is not a single word or phrase that can accurately describe the experience of flOw.
There are certain games which come along every now and then which make you sit up, pay attention and realise that games are a unique artform. FlOw is one such game.
Taking control of a worm-like creature, you slink around a plane of the ocean’s water. As you progress deeper through the literal ‘levels’ of water into darkness, certain organisms exist which you gobble up and evolve your worm.
The organisms which you devour for your own personal gain are oftentimes oblivious to your existence. At times, they will be quite determined to do you harm. By ducking, dodging, and weaving away from them, you can eat the little spheres on their back (the same as you have) and destroy them.
The game itself is nothing short of amazing. Every aspect of the game is smooth and completely ‘of’ the world which has been created. The creatures are unique and individual, always a pleasure to look at, while the music gently rolls along in the background with you. Don’t miss flOw.
You can say flOw is a great action/RPG game unlike any other. Very pleasant flash graphics, music and gameplay. Start as a goldfish and become an anaconda!
There are many kinds of creatures in there to fight with. You will need to adjust your fighting style to defeat or, more accurately, "eat" the various monsters.
It wasn't mentioned that after growing very large (or "old"), you give birth to a new species, which you take control of.
Bad thing you can't save your game :-\
Certainly worth downloading.
The game itself is fantastic and fun, but the bug where you can't continue on past your jellyfish stage is annoying, I've yet to figure out how to get past that bug.
Really amazing, simple but very beautiful. And I must say the most unique game played by me.
