Take gardening to a whole new level in this defense title where you handle the growth of one of the last plants on Earth to help it stave off an insect invasion. You'll need to plan ahead and use your resources carefully if you want to avoid being covered in hundreds of stinging, biting, space bugs. And really, who doesn't?

This game is awesome. I played the first two levels and can totally see how the difficulty is quite harsh. The tutorial was simple. The first level was a little harsh, but I scoffed it off (lolrhyme) on me being new to the game. Then I got to the second level and somehow passed.

The point system for buying items is good, but unlike most upgrade-games, merely upgrading everything isn't going to help you win instantly. Thank god you can reply levels and earn more points, because there is no way I'd be able to beat the first five levels without going back and getting more weapons.

And, like the analysis said, the planning in game is what makes or breaks a level.

As my daughter would say..."..meh..."
I tried, and after about 3 minutes, gave up. Too much going on, not enough thinking time at the start, and it is so darn confusing!
So I went and played Canyon Defence, and Viking Defence instead!Can't beat those for fun.

Grr, was sailing along fine, but I cannot get past the end of battle 8 - I'm using laser turrets to get past the early single enemy swarms, but then find I get overwhelmed at the end by the really fast moving enemies - I just cant seem to kill them and then they go and get full health again...argh.

Hints appreciated!


Hi JIGuest,you cool get in battle 8, for the fast enemies, you can use Smog Fruit to slow them, for crowds of enemies you'd better to use weapons that has good splash range for example Carronade Chunk.
And note that the back with full health because they had returned to a Insect Hole which recover HP, so take a look at Holes to see what they will do before waves come is very important, remember that you can use mouse wheel to zoom in/zoom out the scene to get a better view.


there's not enough down time to set up your towers in the beginning and the branches are tedious to move around. also the joints should be easier to see. 2/5

Thanks Burstyx Studio, I actually found that

Hungry Apple towers

were pretty useful for that level (and pretty good for most things tbh).

On the whole I think it's a good little game, the main annoyances were it being hard to click on the right part of the tree/plant during the heat of an insect attack.

I agree that slightly more time at the start would be useful, and I don't think it would detract from the game in any way.

the key to winning this game is DO NOT UPGRADE GUNS. surprisingly... upgrading your guns is totally and utterly useless.

1. when you need to heal, upgrade your main tree (dont repair it for hp). upgrade doubles your max hp AND heals to full.
2. just make LOADS of branches and put the most basic gun on it. every time you upgrade the main tree, upgrade all your branch lengths to accommodate more guns. NUMBERS is key.
3. once you hit 1k water regularly, start replacing the basic gun with the rocket launcher.
