Phyta is a game mostly focused on aesthetics where the player directs the grow of a black plant by positioning a black sun, controlled by the mouse. The game consists of five levels and the player progresses by catching, ensnaring and trapping little golden creatures. The growth of the plant and the thickness is determined by keeping the left mouse button pressed and positioning the black sun strategically.

New parts sprout from each other and they need to be directed around and in front of a creature to trap it. In the meantime, the game scrolls forever vertically. With each trapped creature, the black sun grows. In later levels the creatures become much stronger and they are able to break through most barriers until the vast blackness eventually gets the better of them.
