Grow Cube solution walkthrough guide (with pics)
Grow Cube has been a flash game for well over a decade but the iOS and Android versions of the game came out just this year, bringing a whole new audience to EYEZMAZE's fascinating Grow series of puzzle games.
Grow Cube itself has always been the most popular of EYEMAZE's games, perhaps because it's one of the first or because it's the easiest for people to functionally wrap their heads around. Figuring out the order of items to have the people manipulate the cube for everything to level up adds a certain charm the other Grow games lack.
This guide will cover the basic version of the game and not Grow Cube Omega, which is still Japan-only.
We're going to go through the process step by step -- with links to images showing the effects of the item you've chosen so you can make sure you're doing it right. Completing the game is a simple 10-step (one for each item) process, and the final result is worth the trouble!
If you don't want to read what happens, just skim through the headers telling the item order.
Item 1: People
You can do either water or people as your first item, as long as the opposite is your second (so people for turn 1 and water for turn 2 or, water for turn 1 and people for turn 2).
Not much happens when you put your first item down in any case.
Item 2: Water
Placing the water down causes your people to dig a small pond. Here's what it should look like.
Item 3: Plants
The people you put down will carve a small stream into the cube on this turn after you put down the plants. The stream will make the top layer of the cube turn green to look like grass instead of dirt. Your cube will look like this.
Item 4: Basket
Like with all the other items, your timing with the basket is important. If you're playing Grow Cube without a guide you may see the basket explode on the fire instead of level up.
On this turn your people will carve out some of the land at the top of the cube and your plants will grow. Here's what it should look like.
Item 5: Pipe
The pipe not only needs time to grow, it needs certain parts of your cube to be carved out. You're putting the pipe down now to get started and let your bucket level up into a vase, which your people will put a plant into as well as carve out a cave. The pipe is just going to be hanging there for now.
Item 6: Fire
It's finally time to put down the fire! Your people will make a plant bridge to the vase, which levels up again and is ready to be put on the fire. They also carve a hole next to the fire and clean out some more around the cave. Your cube should look like this.
Item 7: Saucer
This turn your pipe should extend into the hole your people dug last turn. Not only that, but they light a fire in the cave! The cube is really bustling now and your journey is almost over. Your cube should look like this.
Item 8: Bone
Your plants keep growing and your saucer changes this turn, and your people run some water down the side of the cube with some new irrigation. Only two more steps to go. Here's what the cube should look like now.
Item 9: Ball
The saucer grows to new heights this turn and your people make good use of the surrounding plants and the boiling pot to make a mysterious yellow ball. What could they use it for? If you've followed the instructions so far, you're about to find out.
Item 10: Spring
The spring is the final item you put down and your cube should transform in some surprising ways this turn. I won't spoil it in text, but if you want to see the final result in image form, here you go.
See? That wasn't so hard. Grow Cube has been stumping players for years and the solution seems so simple written out. Congratulations on your fully grown cube!
There are no secret endings in Grow Cube, but if you want more games like it I highly recommend EYEMAZE's other games like Grow Park, Grow RPG, and Grow Jungle.
