Grow Up 

 

Family Friendly Gaming was able to play Grow Up on the Xbox One for free since Teen Gamer paid for the Xbox Live Gold membership. Grow Up is one of those games that was available on the Xbox One as long as the Live Gold membership is paid. So technically Grow Up is not free. There are no physical copy versions of Grow Up. So Family Friendly Gaming would not have ever played it because FFG only purchases physical copies of games.

Grow Up looks indie, sounds indie, and plays indie. The robot character we play walks really funny. We use the triggers to grab with his right and left hands. This is very important since climbing is a big part of Grow Up. Then riding plants that we grow becomes important a bit later on. It is very easy to die in Grow Up. It can also be a pain to figure out where to go.

I ran into all kinds of glitches while playing Grow Up. The odd sounds sent me off edges at time. The worst thing that can happen to you in Grow Up is to fall. It is such a pain to climb back up. There are teleport spots as long as you can make it to them. It took me a few hours to adapt to the controls in Grow Up. I can see some gamers rage quitting over the controls in Grow Up.

I liked being able to scan and recreate certain plants. That was a pretty cool game play mechanic in Grow Up. The star plant looks like rocks to me, but who is going to quibble. Riding vines is a neat game play mechanic in Grow Up too. I did some research and found out the first game in this series had that as well. No one at Family Friendly Gaming played the first game - Grow Home.

I hope Ubisoft moves Grow Home and Grow Up to a physical copy edition in the future. Plenty of families will never find out about these games because they are digital downloads only. Just be aware there are glitches and frustrations in Grow Up. I would like to see a sequel to Grow Up in the future. I would like to see the controls improved a bit on the home consoles.
