You move Tom across the map, and whenever he leaves a cell a tree will grow behind him, making that cell inaccessible.
The goal is to reach the exit of the map, without getting blocked, and while planting enough trees.
The number of trees needed is given at the start of each level, and is visible in the top right corner of the screen.
You need to beat each level in order to progress to the next.
Many special cells will appear as you progress through the levels. Teleports, fences, axes, boulders, etc.
Chapters and Levels
There are currently 70 levels, in 5 increasingly difficult chapters.
The first chapter contains 10 tutorial levels, and is followed by 4 chapters of 15 levels each.
More chapters and levels will be added as updates in the future, possibly including user-submitted levels.
Scores and Rankings
The higher number of levels completed, the higher the rank.
Players on the same number of level are ranked by the cumulated time spent to clear the levels. The quicker the better.
You can retry a level as many times as you want, so once you know how to beat it, try and beat it quicker and quicker to boost your ranking.
