grOw is a puzzle game where you are constantly running out of space. As you move your orb will gather energy and grow until it can contain no more and it bursts.

Avoid red lasers and orbs at all cost! They grow you until you burst!

Use arrow keys, WASD, or the left thumbstick on a 360 controller to move. Change Player Orbs (if more than one alive) by pressing space/shift or the left and right bumpers of the controller.

I planned on making more levels, but ran out of time for the compo. (I will be adding more levels after Ludum Dare, and polishing everything up, adding sounds, etc.)

There is no sound, as I'm not good at making music or sounds (plus I ran out of time).

Note: The extended version was done after the Ludum Dare 42 submission time, and as such should not be the version you rate the game on.
