Hard for me to believe it’s been 30 years since E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial came out. They filmed some of the movie near the house I grew up in, too, so it has a special significance to me. The game out today, published by Chillingo, looks like a sort of free to play Farming sim with an ET skin, but we’ll have a full review up soon.

Fly past the moon and soar across the stars together with E.T. as he returns home to The Green Planet. Only you can help E.T. save the dying planet by creating enchanted gardens full of intergalactic plant life.

E.T.’s magic healing touch will speed you along as you breed new and exotic species that are truly out-of-this-world!

With the help of E.T.’s wise teacher, Botanicus, and an army of Micro Tech workers, you will cultivate the land, sow seeds, nurture plants, build structures, and develop the most astounding planet in the universe!
