~ Update v. 1.01: Added buttons to rotate blocks, enhancing playability for touch displays and laptop trackpads ~

(playing with a mouse is still recommended,)

Place blocks and plant objects like flowers, mushrooms or crystals to make a beautiful lunar garden!


1. Choose a block by picking it up with the left mouse button. Place it on the field by pressing again.
Once picked up you can rotate the block pieces by clicking the right mouse button.

2. Plant objects by selecting them from the inventory at the bottom edge of the screen.
Each object can only be placed on blocks of the matching color (except for the moon flower which grows on every color).
Once planted, the object will grow and spread on surrounding blocks of the same color.

Object Types:

Normal Plants: 
(star flower, water lily, cactus) will only spread horizontally.


(mushrooms, corals, crystals) will only spread vertically.


Moon Flower: 
spreads horizontally and vertically and adapts to whichever block color it's placed on. 
It will only spread on other blocks of the color it was initially placed on.
Can only be placed on full moon!

You can click on the "PASS" button to skip a turn if you are not able to place a piece or object, or if you decide you don't want to.
Choose another challenge by clicking on the "MENU" button.
Retry the current challenge from the beginning by clicking on the "REWIND" button.

The game ends when the lunar circle is complete and there are no turns left.
You get points for every object on the field according to it's stage of growth:

Small: 3 Points   |  Medium: 6 Points   |  Large: 10 Points

I am  getting slightly better... Can you implement a highscore ranking? Then I am ambitious enough and will play daily :-D :-D :-D Madita

Wow! :o Nice score! Implementing a high score system is a little bit more advanced because the data needs to be stored on a seperate server (as far as I know). But I will look into it if I find the time :) So many projects at once! :D

Ich habs auch mal angezockt. Echt meditativ  und macht ziemlich Spaß, weil es komplexer ist als man zuerst vermuten könnte :D Madita

I would really love seeing someone getting more than 500 points! :D
