Use your bean

Jay Is Games is having their second flash game design competition, and as far as I'm concerned, the other games will have to be pretty darn awesome to beat Sprout, a simple but elegant (and droll, I thought) mini-adventure game.

That was indeed very cute.

Cute and fun but a one-shot deal, no? Once you beat the game once, it's over.

Well, yes, but that's pretty much all adventure games.

Oh. Right. The beanstalk was awesome.

Some of the games have been fun, some tedious; some have done a better job of really integrating the "grow" concept into the gameplay than others (e.g. the "Chicken Grow" game, which is really "Solve these two puzzles and as a result oh yeah there happens to be growing".)

"Sprout" was both fun and well-implemented, and was incredibly pretty and endearing as well. (The same is true, I should note, of Sprout.)

Presumably you mean "desert". There's something you have do earlier to make it possible to get past that point.
