Interesting little game. I felt there were a bit too many menus. It kind of seemed like I was doing word processing more than playing a game! The gameplay itself was good though it was not always clear to me why a given set of flowers expired. On the other hand, for other levels the solutions tended to be too straightforward (e.g. you have 2 seeds which you place in the two corresponding lines).

Very well put-together. I can see myself coming back to this one sometime very soon.

Definitely a great game to play while the other ones are loading :D

Solid puzzle game! Really like this. Too bad there is no sound. Good job!

Ah, a pure HTML5 game! Nice effort! Your CSS and web design look really nice. The game itself needed a little more spice I think. I found it difficult to visualize what it would look like a few turns in the future. I like the concept too, and a few tweaks would make it pretty cool.

I enjoyed the puzzles and the game was clearly well thought out. I would of liked some other graphics and some more variety in gameplay but I enjoyed what I played.

I understood what was going on, and it was still too hard to figure out what would happen. It seems like it is easier to guess the solution than think.

And if I didn't know what Game of Life was, I would have no idea what this was.

Very cool use of Conway's Game of Life! Fun!

Very complete. It's not often that a cellular automata game becomes so engrossing.

The game looks really clean and runs nicely. It's a little too hard to really figure out the solution in many cases, but it's a good puzzle.

Interesting game. Some levels are really easy and some are very hard, or maybe I just don't understand it that well. 5 on innovation!

Nice game, a good take on making the game of life into a real game :) Clicking through the menus gets in the way a lot.

Nice concept and graphic interface.
It will sound like a whim but I would have enjoyed flowers sprites and some garden background.

I thought the first puzzles were too easy, and the difficulty didn't increase soon enough. This is really fun though. :)

Great puzzle game, liked it a lot :)
In my opinion you should have put a bigger tutorial since it's not easy to grasp it just like that

Super little puzzle game. Fits the theme brilliantly and is yet very original, I'm impressed with the tutorial too - it teaches the basics of the game well. Great game!

I liked this game a lot. I did feel like the "Make little spinners" puzzles were a few too many, and that the generator puzzles were somewhat hard to grasp without a lot of fiddling around.
