It’s always difficult to review titles made with the intention of reaching a more casual and mild audience. Under Leaves is very much in that vein, in no way bringing intensity or action and instead focused on soothing sounds and colors in its artistic locales from all over the world. In each location you’ll be charged with finding multiples of a specific shape, moving between multiple screens to try to track them all down. In some cases it can require more effort than others and if you get stuck there’s a provision for help if you need it. By no means would this likely be for more mainstream gamers but if you’re a parent with gamers-to-be or simply someone who enjoys taking some time to unwind with something simpler it accomplishes what it set out to do quite effectively.
