Thanks for the tut.

Couldn't you add another condition with "Is touching Buttons" that says, basically, "and scale < 1.6" so that the "grow" variable isn't even needed? So, basically: "if touching and scale < 1.6 then scale [plus]= 0.2"

Uh, why can't I use a plus sign in this comment?!!?!

Just wondered if I'm missing something about why you used the extra variable.
