The Lone Terraformer

by hyperturtle - 48 Hour Compo Entry

After leaving Earth X years ago, the humans detected water forming again on earth. They send back a robot(you) back to earth to make it more habitable. It's a puzzle game where you terraform earth!



Yeah.. I'm sorry guys, it sorta wasn't intiutive enough on what to do. (something I'lll have to keep in mind for the next one I make) if you're impatient here's a few hints: click on drill and then drill the trash. it'll give you lasers to laser the ice to make water. laser'ing water gives clouds that give you more water. If you end up with more too many trees, you can drill the trees. if you end up with too much water you can use plants to absorb them, or laser the water.

Pretty, but very hard to figure out what to do.

Fun game! Would be way more playable with hotkeys though.

Well I think I was able to figure out what to do through intuition...sort of. I'm guessing I couldn't beat 'easy' mode because I made way more trees than water. It's an interesting concept but the game gets repetitive quickly.

Why does the item always switch back to grass every time I click?

It makes using any item (except for grass obviously) very annoying. I think it's something you should have been aware of enough to try to fix. I can only imagine how annoying it was test your own game when it behaves like that.

Also, don't feel bad about your game being hard to understand. I thought I had submitted the simplest, most-intuitive game ever to this LD, and the first comment I got on it was "I have no idea what you are supposed to do or how to do it"

I like what you have made, but just can't figure out what can be done with things. 87 is my best on easy...

I like the concept. Took a while to figure everything out, as mentioned. But could be turned into something great, I believe.

Need hotkeys badly, and I can't figure out how the plants grow
