Space Gardener (Pixelated Gardening in Space!)
In space, no one can hear you scream. But did you know that you can plant flowers and tend to your very own space garden, while enjoying calm relaxing atmospheric music? You really can. There are no aliens bursting from peoples chests, and no short circuiting, malfunctioning androids attempting to kill you. There is only you, your gardening tools, lovely music, and the peacefulness of your space garden. Does that sound like an enjoyable way to spend some time? If so, your blue space thumb is calling to you. "If you plant it, it will grow!"
Key commands for Space Gardener are as follows...
A = Left
D = Right
SPACE = Jump
Left Mouse Button = Dig
Middle Mouse Roller = Toggle between stone/plant/other
Right Mouse Button = Build Stone/Plant Pot
G = Game Guide
F4 = Toggle Sound On/Off
F5 = Save
F8 = Load previously saved game
Esc = Will quit the game, so be careful and save first!
You will need to dig into the spacey ground, (Similarly to the Atari classic game Dig-Dug) through blue stones to gather the nutrient rich blue tinted soil. Every 20 stone squares gathered can be traded for 1 flower pot with seed. After planting the seed in the pot, the plant then grows fully and flowers. You will then need to gather the adult flower's seeds. Then continue the gathering/planting/trading process onwards to obtain a harder shovel and more goodies to make your extraterrestrial garden even more otherworldly and plentiful. Your space garden awaits. Put on your spacesuit and get planting!
