I want to recommend one of my favourite creators called 'koknsun'.

I think I'm pretty safe in saying he's probably japanese. He has put some English translation in which , while not always making perfect sense , is a nice touch. To be honest you don't really need it anyway to enjoy the levels.

He has a series of levels all based on the theme of the player being or becoming a 'Legendary Gardener'. Don't worry you don't need a spade or an extensive knowledge of all the Latin names for plants.

Although you don't need to play them in order I would advise it simply because every single level is a feast for the eyes and it's great to see how his talent and designs have evolved over the months since I played his first level. Having said that even his first one is brilliant and I would be ecstatic if any of mine were that good.

I'm not going to spoil it by giving any details away as it's great fun to see it first hand when you have no idea what to expect next.

His design in every level is absolutely breathtaking and when you get to the fourth level some of the mechanisms he has going on in there are fantastic. I can't imagine how many logic switches he must have used for it all. I only wish I knew how to do half of that stuff.

The fourth level is also the most challenging imo but not frustratingly so. I managed to finish them all anyway and loved them all.

If you want to see some truly beautiful design and some awesome physics at work check out all his levels. It's also a travesty that he has relatively few plays considering how good they are but that's down to the crazy cool levels system again I suppose. Anyway stop reading this and go play them. You won't be disappointed.

Cool stuff.
I managed to see only the first level because connection sucks these days.
Anyway great find.

Yes. I tried this creator's levels after he/she was one the first to upload up a picture on one of my levels. I haven't really played a lot of levels based on flowers or gardening so i think i can say this creator's are the best i've seen utilizing this theme. But the innovativeness of some of the puzzles to these levels are really inspiring. The visual design of the flowers and trees are really well done also. I would also recommend this creator.

Part 5 of his Little Big Gardener series is out now. I can warmly recommend it.

I agree with everything mrvista has said about these levels. They are breathtakingly beautiful and the skill of the creator is astounding. I loved them.

I still have played only the first episode, later on I'll play the others.

Yes, very cool. I've played some of these, but I didn't realise part 5 was out. Groovy :)

Just wow!
I played all the series in a looong session and I'm amazed.
The quality of the stuff is increasingly insanely good.
Good puzzle, awesome platforming, marvelous visuals.

I think that this series deserves at least a crown, since it's just as good as Grantos' stuff.
Keeping this consistency on 5 levels is veeeery hard I suppose, and few people (like even Coyote_blue's Lone Ninja Series) manage to be such great.

Koknsun is one of the most gifted people whose creations I have had the pleasure of being introduced to and for that I thank you mrvista.
