Want to play a fun and cute little Flash game to while away a few minutes ?

I love Flash games. I don't want to post every game I like here, but the Grow series in particular make me giggle like a schoolgirl. I'm not sure why. See if you can get the full ending, with everything MAX. Or don't.

I really like the concept, but the game doesn't do a very good job of teaching you the patterns. It doesn't tell you the level of each industry as you go along (and comparing the levels of each industry to each other is really the most important thing I can think of for figuring out which order to activate them) and even besides that, it doesn't do a good job in general of elaborating the connection between them all and how they work together.

I've been doing this for a while, and still can't quite figure it out. The couple times I got somewhat far were flukes, and without the various clues and hints that should be there, it's hard for me to recreate them without simply repeating, as opposed to improving.

But maybe I'm just dumb.

And sorry to bash your game, I do like it, which just makes it more frustrating that it wasn't executed as well as it should have been (Borderlands PC syndrome).

You have to watch what happens. Don't mistake it for anything more than a trial and error game though. It's not 'logical', you just have to play with it until it does what you want. Basically, if your guys spend a lot of time standing around doing nothing, then you chose them too early. They should be doing something pretty much every sequence.

It's almost more of a webtoy than an actual game. I loves it.
