Extreme Grass Cutting

Share Collapse

Author Comments

I was inspired by my garden for this game. Its completely overgrown, so instead of doing something about it, I made this.
Just wave your mouse over the grass to cut it, click on gems to collect them.
Free Play mode is a simple mode where you can just relax and cut grass in your own time, hit the "grow grass" button at the top for more grass.
Survival mode, the grass grows against you and you have to cut it down before it reaches the top of the screen, the more you cut, the faster it grows.
Time Attack mode is where you cut back the grass to find the gems hidden behind it, each level has less time and more gems to find.
Scores for each mode are seperate.

ENGAGING... kinda

While the idea isn't go great, you executed it as expected. It looks nice, but the gameplay just isn't so exciting. Rather than just clicking, add unlockable tools like a scythe which cuts the grass as you you slice the mouse across it. And poison which halts the grow speed for a time. Of course to buy these you would use points. Eventually you could even make this 3D where you can spin the camera around you to cut all the grass around you.

You're only moving your mouse...?

...and in other games, you're only pushing buttons on your keyboard. :p

I took the title "Extreme Grass Cutting" to be ironic, so that's the spirit I'm judging the game in. It's a time-waster, and a little tongue-in-cheek. The Free Mode is fun for a little bit, but the real game is the Time Attack and Survival modes.

What /really/ impressed me was the in-flash online scoreboard, that marked names with country flags. That was probably the best bit of the whole game for me. But I'm weird like that.


I dont see why this is getting great reviews. IT SUCKS! You move your mouse. OH MY GOD! Dont waste your time playing this.

Loved it

You definitely thought of something original here. Only thing I noticed is that sometimes various blades of grass grew off to the right of the screen and you couldn't actually tell how tall it was until the danger light went on. But there was enough grass here to set off my allergies, great game.

Only the attack mode is fun

But it is pretty fun. Definitely engaging enough to keep me into it 'til I died. I'm number 3!! El Harlo. And I do like how you included the freeplay mode, it allows you to work out tactics for the competitive modes. Very nicely drawn and programmed.
