You are a plant trying to grow to the point of blooming. Growing will cost you sunlight which you can collect by clicking on falling rays, and water which is collected automatically over time through your roots. You must defend yourself from caterpillars, beetles, and flies. To defend yourself, you can purchase upgrades at the bottom of the screen.

Upgrading roots will more than double your water per second.

Upgrading leaves will collect sunlight over time in addition to sunlight gained by clicking on falling rays.

Hiring ants will defend you from ground bugs and upgrading them increases their damage.

Growing thorns will defend you from flying bugs and upgrading them will increase their damage.

Synthesizing poison will defend you from both flying bugs, and crawling bugs.

How cute!


Game has a nice idea and great potential. A few more upgrades and maybe more to do after growing the first plant (spreading to other places maybe??) Music was nice and the over all idea is good just needs a little more polish, would love to see a sequel.

Loved it. It was over too soon :/ Just a suggestion, make the visuals a bit more clear. It was somewhat difficult to see how much Sun I needed in order to upgrade. Also, maybe more upgrades would make the game a bit more interesting. Overall though, great game

Very nice. I think it had a simple concept that was well executed. The graphics were gorgeous, the music was nice, and the gameplay was ... just relaxing. Even tough there's a constant storm of bugs, if you don't upgrade, you die, and if you do upgrade, you just kick back and relax. Some might argue that it might become a boring game after that, but instead it just goes on for just the right amount of time to keep being interesting, before it ends with a satisfying ending screen. In short: very simple, short in a good way, and just beautiful. Nice job!
