/*EDIT*/ Medals are broken right now, I'll be looking into fixing them. The API's giving me a ton of errors, so I'll add a new version if I get it fixed.

/*EDIT II*/ Hoorah for Daily Third!

/*EDIT III*/ Front page woot! As promised, I'll get to work on those medals ;)

/*EDIT IV*/ Ok, I fixed the medals. They should be up soon. If there are any problems with them, PM me and let me know, thanks.

/*EDIT INFINITY*/ I am blown away by the positive response to the game. I wasn't strongly considering a sequel, but now, it just may happen. Also, Revert to Growth has officially passed [Visible] II in views on NG! Hoorah!

Here it is NG! After 2 months of hard work are now in front of you! I now present: Revert to Growth

Revert to Growth is a puzzle platform game with 20 levels ranging in difficulty from easy to really hard. You've finished all the levels, you say? You think its over? Well got to the level editor and make your own levels! The fun never ends!!!

A huge thanks to l-minus-l for doing the art. He did an amazing job, and the game wouldn't be anything close to its current level if it wasnt for his great talent. Also a big thanks to Twune Music for the audio and King for the sponsorship.

This project originally started in a game development competition, where we had 24 hours to make a game with the theme "growth". It took me 22 hours to make the original version of the game (you can imagine how crappy it was haha). I ended up winning 1st place with the entry, so I decided to expand upon it. Two months later, this is how it turned out!

If you get stuck (you probably will once or twice), be sure to check out the walkthrough (press the 'g' key anytime, or click the walkthrough button on the level select screen)

Thanks to my fans for the support, and to my future fans, wink wink, for your future support.

Please leave some good, constructive feedback, and vote fairly.

PLEASE RECOMMEND FOR THE PUZZLE COLLECTION!!! (its below the related submissions on the left side)

Also, if you make any good levels with the level editor, feel free to PM them to me.

I really like the puzzle element of this game and that makes for a fun game, You can get stuck at times on this game but just gotta pay attention, Overall its a fun and addictive game


Neat game, though the stone pushing seems buggy sometimes, but nothing gamebreaking, so hats off to one of the more creative plattformer games from back in 2009

To get all medals I had to create a level of course. And it would be a waste to not put it public for others to try, else I would have wasted my time for almost nothing. So feel free to check it out, it's very easy, but still requires a bit of thinking. I like to imagine it plays on a mountains peak on the robots hunt for his spaceship parts. A harsh territory with little place to grow plants. If the game was longer, different sections like that would make for a nice touch of story :)

Here's the code:

my level

It was indeed special. Artistic, musically, challenging, soothing. Level 11 bugged me more than I'd like to admit, but the rest of the levels I did alone. Maybe an explanation about the robots ability to passively move rocks would be good, so people don't have to go to walkthrough. Looking forward to more sweet games, and I see you have a nr. 2. Cheers!

Liking the game idea, music, theme and difficulty, though I can't find any solution to level 11 and it seems that the walkthrough doesn't exist anymore, so no help from there. Also custom levels don't work when I try to paste the codes. Enjoyed THE GAME anyways, thanks for the entertainment it provided.
4/5 points for effort and quality
