Thanks for playing. People have problems understanding how to play it :) I didn't have time to make proper tutorial during the jam. 

I have seen in the video that you had problems with teleporter. X - is used to place it and pressed second time teleports player to its location.  C is used to clear teleport so you can place it in different place.

Second thing is genome you have created. You would get better results if you had placed dots in forward and root boxes for all directions in the beginning.

Third that grey arrow points you to the "Flower" which after unlocking will let you level up your genome.

Example genome 

2 dots to forward in all 4 directions UP DW LT RT

3 dots to root in all 4 directions

That will allow you to grow bigger trees and gather more dots for further experiments with a genome.

Thanks Megawacky Max. I had a little time to make a proper tutorial. When I think about it right now I see that I could make some things that would make the game easier to grasp. Game developers are always learning so I have few more things that I have learned.

Thank you for playing!

I was in a hurry to finish the game before Procjam ends and I was unable to do a proper tutorial.

To help you started:

Collect as many small dots as possible you have 1000 in the start. Press enter and modify genome. Experiment with different options. There is also a help in the main menu. To level up your genome you must find grey circle things (however each one require different method of unlocking). When you modify genome keep in mind that plant is growing in four directions denoted by up, dw, lt, rt. It is possible to make it behave differently for each direction. Genome is executed from top to bottom. Most important are the roots which are like new plants. Enough of these and plant will grow huge fast.

Example for UP direction

If you put two dots for left two for forward and four for root it will have 50% chance that plant will turn left 50% that it will go forward in up direction and 48% chance that new root will be created. If a new root is created the process will be repeated for it.

It is a platformer where you create plants by modifying their genome. 

Each plant gives you "life" points which can be used to further modify and upgrade their genomes.

Game was made for #Procjam 2017
