plant escape [browser]

Somewhere in New Jersey a pot of soil was left behind in a prison cell. Suddenly, a plant springs forth, so it's your job to help the plant escape in this puzzler by Tom Brinton. Press the arrow keys to move and the Z + X keys to start/reset the game. But when you reset, you go back to your humble beginnings.

I'm glad you told us it was Z+X to start (oh, it says that below), otherwise I never would have been able to play, because the intro screen seems to insist that it's O+X, which is sort of obnoxious to have people do just to start the game anyway.

Anyway, that was pretty bad. The levels weren't challenging, which is probably good, because god forbid you press a wrong arrow key and have to go all the way back to the entire frickin' beginning. The alternate exits never really made a difference, which might have made the game a bit more interesting, but oh well.

So yeah, if you're going to do a puzzle game like this (which isn't even all that original), at least put some effort into making some more interesting (and difficult) levels without the haha-you-made-a-mistake-now-you-have-to-start-the-game-over-from-the-very-beginning "mechanic".

Ugh.

I had good fun, no easy undo made sure every move was well considered, not just random chance like other games.

I found it really frustrating a couple of times when I just hit the wrong key which then meant going all the way back to the start. An option to undo just that last move would be really good for those situations.

I also got fed up of having to go right back to the very beginning when I went wrong... Gave up in the end. :(

FFS... you have to start over completely with a mistake. That was a waste of time.

Easy for me, but I loved it.

Restart the game with a single wrong key press? FThis comment has been removed by the author.

I have played and replayed until I get to a trapped screen, with a lot of stalk blocking my exit... I can't get through the other door in the previous level, which i can see I could use to exit. What am I doing wrong? Please.

Woo hoo! Made it out, finally! :-)

there is a screw you choice near the end on the left, also don't run too much thru the easy stuff, one over step & it is back to the start. this game is almost as bad as puzzlescript.
