You control 5 little characters as they try to plant a light seed while avoiding the dark parasites that also inhabit their tree.
Mr. Twig – Is a tall and skinny creature with many arms that can stretch to reach items. He also has the unique ability to grow flowers.
Mr. Lantern – Is a small nut-like creature that holds the light seed within his body. This enables him to glow and gives him power.
Mrs. Mushroom – The only female of the group. She is able to duplicate herself and shrink to a smaller size.
Mr. Feather – This little character flutters about and is the only one of the group who can fly.
Mr. Poppyhead – Is a larger, more solid character. Probably the strongest creature of the bunch.
