My world was once a place of lush green, a kingdom of life and beauty. But now it lies as only a dark shadow of its once glorious splendor. Shattered by the comet that came from the heavens, its molten core burst upon on the lands and twisted the planet into a place of soot and darkness.

With the power of the VineKings, I must rebuild our kingdom. I will set forth against this unknown darkness and prevail over whatever forces may oppose me. I will regrow all the lands, and they will give birth to a new generation of Vinelings and eventually a new VineKing to take my place. I will reclaim our planet!

I am the last VineKing. My journey begins here.

Good Luck!

Hint#1:The screen shots can give you a good idea of some of the level sizes!

When you draw a line through the Lava Rocks, they get smashed away and grass will grow in their place!

each level has aprox 70 Lava Rocks, maybe there are 35 levels so I guess total 3500 Lava Rocks in 35 levels!
