A while ago, On of Eyezmaze announced on his blog that he had lost the files for his original Grow game due to a failed hard drive (reviewed here way back in 2004). But he was able to recover some of his work from the original SWF files, and decided to do more than fix a Flash Player versioning issue with it: He added a new ending (there are now 2!) and a hint button as well. The result is Grow (ver. 3) Remake.
Simply drag the item icons, one at a time, onto the big red sphere. The objective is find the correct order that will grow each item to its maximum level (some require more time/turns than others do).
This first release for the Grow series is a little more difficult than the others that came afterward. With 12 items, that means there are 12! possible permutations (over 479 million!!). Fortunately, the game gives you clues after each attempt identifying what level each item achieved and whether it reached its "max lvl" (maximum level), and the new hint systems helps to uncover the new hidden ending.
The new 2nd ending is so radically different and so extensively animated that it provides a compelling reason to relive this awesome little game once again!
