This was a thrilling adventure! lots of fun playing it! I like the strategic element of choosing which seeds to pick up first. Nice job BLEX!


i really like how you essentially choose the difficulty for yourself based on the order you grab the seeds. the first few times i ended up with the green one last which made it hard to get since it's out of the way but starting with the green one made the rest a bit easier since the spikes aren't that hard to avoid. fun little game
