There is a tree sitting in a field, barren from Fall. It is the dawn of Spring, a time of growth. The tree is besieged by insects, it is a time of growth for them, too. But fear not, for insects attract spiders. Grow this tree to it's full potential.

1-buy spider

2-buy leaf

3-buy roots

I think this game has merit!
Pros: New enemies as you progress, and the idea of spidermen protecting the tree was cool :D Seeing the visual representation of the tree growing was nice too. Sounds and music are all right, they're fitting. What you wanted to convey (calmness, patience) can be felt.
Cons: got boring after a while, as the upgrade rate is pretty constant (always have to wait approx the same amount of time). I also wished for more upgrades. Also, at first i thought the bugs were friends :D
Ideas for upgrades: birds, nests, flowers, fruits, squirrels, seedlings, bushes that slow down enemies
Ideas for enemies: thermites, skunks, flying bugs, wines

10 minutes into the game and I'm not sure if i've come close to completing it or not. There's no score, no health bars, no completion percentage, I know nothing about what im doing or even why.

Agreed too simple for instructions.. but here is what found out..
Spiders = offence each adds more projectiles
Leaves = Increased energy production per second
Roots = Defense adds to your overall "health"
