The background of the image is made up of portions of the start states of five games in On's GROW series, and the scattered items comprise all of the addable items in those five games. Playing each game and adding items in the order given by their respective number* yields the following end game states:

In each case, all but one or two items reach Lv. MAX. Reading the levels of the non-MAXed items alphanumerically (using the layout of the item panels in-game where necessary) gives END UP, the solution phrase and a play on the GROW games' ever-present "LEVEL UP".

*Grow Nano 3 and Grow Cube both use the same image for their fire, but the required ordering can be still be disambiguated from the numbering of other items.
