The controls are stupid, have you ever played a game before?


Rated 3 / 5 stars

so......slow..... Everything about this game is decent except the pace. the vine is slow, the walking is slow, the jumping is slow. I just couldn't bring myself to get past a few levels.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

It's way too slow. Maybe you should have the option to make the vine grow faster. Also if you die you should have a choice between restarting from before you grew the vine and restarting from after you grew the vine. Good job for getting the game done in the time limit though.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

This is a fun, but challenging gardening game. The controls work well, and the graphics were great. I am not sure why people were so critical of the jumping button. I had no problem withing jumping, it went well for me. The medals work, and I earned them all. Will there be a sequel?


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Not a bad game.Maybe some extras,like a flower,or some rocks or something would make it look better.For the controls,I see that you are very criticized.Well,in fact the controls are very good.They make the game more challenging are more interesting.And also,maybe Gary could take a moustache,he would really cool with that.Anyway,well done!
