Since our usual Time Waster Tuesday fun game playing guru Dawn is not around this week (actually, she keeps texting me from DISNEYLAND, yeah, you can hate her too), you get one of Rosalind’s favorite timewasting activities instead! I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but that pretty much means puzzles, especially logic puzzles. I like puzzles. I do logic puzzles as relaxation. I know. I’m really nerdy. You don’t like nerdy, tell Dawn to get her butt back from Disneyland!
So, today’s Time Waster is a game that my husband actually showed me, knowing me like he does. It is called Grow. Yup, Grow. It has a variety of variations, but I will first discuss the game basics, and then look at my favorites.
You start with a colored ball and choose between two options. These options will eventually grow into a variety of interesting creatures, a bear, a giraffe, a vampire. Yeah, I love this game.
In this one, you are growing a storyline along with the puzzle. It’s a little bit Zelda-like, and the objective (other than the usual grow leveling up) is to defeat the monster and save the town. Watch out for your life meter at the bottom!
Grow Tower is the newest one, and I have not yet solved it, so go ahead, beat me to it! Just don’t give away the answer. There are also a variety of mini games on the site, some using the Grow techniques, others not. Still, more than enough stuff to waste a little time. Or, if you are the obsessive type, it could waste a lot of time. I think I took about a week the first time, spare time only, to solve all of them. Also, new games are being added once in a while, so it’s worth checking back often.
