Z+X to reset
Arrow keys to move


Somewhere in New Jersey,
A pot of soil was left behind in a prison cell.
Suddenly, a plant springs forth!!

Help the plant escape.

When you reset, you go back to your humble beginnings.
In a flowerpot, in a prison.

a really good game that involves a one way path to the goal. I wish there was an undo button or checkpoints though.

This was a pretty fun throwback arcade type game. I REALLY wish you didn't have to start all the way back at the beginning every time you died though. Maybe gives the player 3 lives before making us start all over again? It would be much more fair and enjoyable if you were to implement something like that.

Yes, I will fix that when I have some time. thanks for playing anyway

Cool yet disorienting game. It kind of sucks that when you get stuck, you have to start from the beginning, but that's what makes it challenging. This game starts off right with good puzzle design, but kind of rushes in difficulty for the new player by the third or fourth one. Cool concept, interesting setting/setup/story idea, good use of pixel art and decent animation and sound. When you have to go all the way back to the start from a farther away room, the camera swing back through the 45 degree line pattern background isn't that great on the eyes. That could be fixed to black, or something less barfy.

finally i managed to escape the prison!!!!

Why the hell does a reset take you back to the start and not the room you were in? I don't want to replay all the easy rooms.
