as much as I like the grow games, I do wish that they weren't so arbitrary. The game would be more fun if you could intuitively figure it out rather than having to guess the entire way.

You can intuitively figure out a lot of it. Grow is more about cause and effect than trial and error. Depending on the order you do things or the time relationship things fail or fail to mature in time. In this particular one there were a few main time based relationships that really narrows down the possible sequences.

My spreadsheet says it took me about 15 or 20 tries to finish it. Since there are 10! (or 3.6 million) combinations it can't be all that arbitrary, or I'm really really lucky.

Spoiler space...







man - puddle - shapes - bucket - tube - fire - bowl - bone - spring - ball

I just got the solution as well. Buddha, calling it arbitrary just means you don't have the patience to determine its non-arbitrariness.

well, my best pattern was:
water, man, plants, tube, bucket, bone, fire, bowl, spring
What the hell is the correct order!?

Watching the different elements "max" is a great clue. Using a spreadsheet to keep track sounds brilliant too.

I ran into a bug, not sure if it's just me...

man - puddle - shapes - tube - bucket - bowl - bone - stuck??

Sweet! As pointed out in a previous thread, these are puzzles rather than "games", but they do have charm.

on post, thanks SkelPaff ( think I got screwed up because I thought you needed the springs to open the platforms that the springs are actualy supposed to sit on)

WOW. Very cute when complete.

Well that was a great way to 'waste' half an hour or so of my time. Great little puzzle.

bobo123: I ran into a similar bug, at least twice.

If you run into the "stuck" bug, just reload the page. Before reload version was "e" and after reload verson was "f" and didn't get stuck.

This one seems a little more interesting than Grow RPG. Even so, the original is still probably the best; it had twelve options, this one still has only ten.

I liked this one most, because I could figure it out without clues.
