Sickly Thing

Is ickle man all better now? Izze? Aw.

Good news – a new Grow Game is out at last. These stylised sequence-puzzle webgames always manage to charm my bitter, cynical socks off – here’s me giggling like a giddy schoolgirl about the last one, Grow Island, and below’s the link to its follow-up.

Creator On’s been ill for a while, but he’s managed to crank out a short, simple new instalment nevertheless- concerning a sickly gentleman, as it happens. Unlike the more complex escalation of Grow Island, Grow Nano vol. 3 only takes a couple of tries to figure out, and is a little shorter on clap-your-hands animated surreality, but it’s ten pleasant enough minutes. “Please let me off this time”, poor On requests. Aw, alright then. But only ‘cos your game is so cute.

    Yay! I absolutely love these games. And this one is only six steps!

    The only one I was actually able to solve before was Grow World, which was kinda neat – but it took a long time. I got this one on my third try :)

    The best part was the doctor at the end.

    Yeah, those things can be hard. I’ve beaten a few of them – I don’t recall if I ever beat Grow Cube, but I think I beat Grow Adventure, maybe Grow World, Grow Sphere, and just now (on your advice) Grow Island. Hooray!

    This is the first one I’ve managed to beat without any hints. But I love these things. They are entirely charming.

    The fact that his family helps to heal the guy by loving him is adorable. I love these games.
