Well, I tried making the worm like, not enough cells to complete with the 10 cells. It does not matter where are they heading they always just stay on the same size and keep moving to the infinite loop.
One solution I found was to simply have a photocyte that splits into a photo/lypo and from there the second stage photocyte splits again into another lypocite and the original photocyte (ensure adhesion is ticked for both splits!). This makes an ugly stringy mass of photo and lypo cells that can survive long enough for the light to revolve around the Petri dish - leave it on incubate for a minute or so and you eventually reach the population required!

I solved it by making a worm of photo-lipo-photo-lipo etc. You can do this with only 3 modes. Basically, you want to have every other cell be a photocyte, or else you won't have enough energy coming in to fill up the lipocytes. If you end up with two lipocytes touching, tweak your organism a little more until no two ever touch.
I'm doing this but I keep getting the same short worm that never increases size. Could you please be more specific with how each mode splits?
Tap "Spoiler" when you're on the "Objective" screen for Sunlight II. It provides a solution. Other solutions are possible, but they require tinkering with several of the cell properties.tiro217 wrote:I'm doing this but I keep getting the same short worm that never increases size.

So just following the hint wasn't enough for me. I tinkered with this level a lot. The way I beat it was basically making the worm in the hint, but one thing that wasn't very intuitive was how I increased the nutrient priority on the lipocyte. This way it was able to absorb more from the photocytes to save over the short "winter" period, and the lipocyte won't let the photocytes die if it can help it, so leaving the photocytes with less energy didn't end up being a problem.
