Primrose es un puzle de lo más simple que se pueda conseguir por 200 puntos (2 euros), y sin duda alguna consigue su objetivo de ser una experiencia relajante al tiempo que nos obliga a darle a la cabeza. Una partidita puede acabar sumando minutos y minutos de juego, haciendo que el tiempo pase volando, lo que muestra que funciona perfectamente a la hora de alcanzar sus objetivos. Insistimos en que poder salvar la partida hubiese sido algo muy de agradecer, y, de hecho, es lo que lo aleja de ser una pequeña joya indiscutible.

Primrose is the kind of game that gives back what you put into it. You can mess around and have a fun enough time, and if you're willing to put the time in to penetrate its intricacies you'll find one of the most rewarding puzzle games currently available on DSiWare. A lack of save feature is unfortunate, but for a scant 200 Points it shouldn't be missed.
Colorblind or color-deficient gamers should support this puzzler on principle alone, but Primrose is actually a pretty solid and satisfying little game beyond that topic too -- so give it a glance even if vision isn't an issue for you. And Jason, nice work. Thanks for looking out for us.
Not nearly as uninspiring or derivative as it first appears, but instead one of the most engrossing and thoughtful puzzlers of the year.
Most will brush Primrose aside as being too simple for its own good. But if you have a willingness to explore all the game has to offer, you'll discover that the mechanics do have a measure of depth to them. You may not get your money's worth when compared with other 200-Point titles. But if you think you can get used to the lack of structure, give it a try next time you're looking for something cheap.

If you like the sound of a desperate multi-storey car-park bun-fight in puzzle form with slightly less pointless anger, then go right ahead.
