This is a continuation of my Competition 12 entry. In it, you make your way up a mountain by growing various plants in order to overcome obstacles. It is finished now, although I might greatly expand upon it in a remake/sequel sometime.

thanks to Des Tomate for this playthrough video: http://youtu.be/JFiIlRuCXSc

Updates are summarized in the posts below.

This is a really cute game, I love the idea that you grow flowers when walking on the dirt, managed to get myself trapped underwater, at the second water puzzle, will try and finish later today when I'm back home! :)

Tell me when you're selling your game. I'd like to buy a copy when you're finished. Just don't make it too expensive. I'm don't have much money. :lol:

// Edit: I think you should make it possible to change the controls. And also make it possible to enable/disable ingame sound. Music didn't fit with the music I was listening. ;-)
Another thing you might want to change/improve: When you beat the game it says "You're back home". But the place doesn't seem like a home to me. The plants were in full bloom. That signals me "You've reached the end of the level". But the home itself seems a bit empty. But I think it's realy cool. But the level amount and the different plants make it more like a demo for a full version.
If you add more plants and more levels you could realy sell it. At least in my opinion.

Purchase this game! This could all be yours for only 99 easy payments of $99.99!

I should allow movement with the arrow keys at least, but I want to keep it simple so I can wrap the game up and finally get back to work on my other game, "The Chasm". A sound volume setting sounds like a good idea and I am also planning on adding a couple more songs. I might make a full version sometime with completely redesigned plants and new graphics... etc.
