Protect Marvin's Garden from the weed infestation while moving to the beat and avoiding dangerous pests.

Move with arrow keys. Hold Z and press an arrow key to spray in that direction.


  • Ammo refills only spawn when there are less than four in the garden, so be sure to collect them to allow more to spawn.
  • Spiders take two hits to kill, but you can safely stun the from afar with your spray and walk up for the finishing blow.
  • In Speedrun mode, it can be wise to let some weeds spread to maximize your potential score gain, but don't get too greedy or you'll get overrun!

This game was made for GBJAM 8, with the restriction of having a 4-color palette. It was inspired by Crypt of the Necrodancer in its rhythm-tied movement. This is my first published game, so I'm looking forward to your feedback!

Special thanks to tutorial creators including @LazyDevsAcademy and @bridgs_dev, and also to @kirai_s for sprite inspiration.

I love it, (even if I’m really bad at it :p )

That was fun! I got 880 - no idea how that rates, but I felt good about it :)

Thanks! 2bitchuck - is that in survival mode or speedrun mode?

That was survival mode. I am definitely not a speedrunner!

Nice! My highscores are ~35000 in Survival mode, and ~520 beats in Speedrun mode. So there's room for improvement! ;)
