This game was really fun, had a good time playing it.
Once you figure out what it is, it gets pretty simple.

And by the way, this game requires a certain amount of intelligence to play :D


Rated 5 / 5 stars

good job

this game was cool in animation and controls one of the best game playing considering i didnt no wat i was doing abit of the time. towards the end was wierd with flying embryos and such would be nice to add a birth sequence to finish off a realistic type of birth game..

good job

Vary strange, but I suppose that's to be expected, eh? Great job!

Was that seriously supposed to be the 'thoughts' of a zygote/foetus as it matured?! The stuff you think up sometimes...

Wonderfully addictive game, with all of that faintly macabre quality that makes what you create so distinctive. Nice idea not to include control explanations; took a while to figure out the last one.

What... ??

I played the game and beat it... last sentence needs to be viewable. I'm not going to comment on the controls. What I would like to address here is pretty much everything else. First the story line was terrible. It was sprinkled with lots of, vaguely translatable, emo-tic type ideas and drowned in loss, of both self and surrounding. No one really enjoys that kind of story, unless they themselves revel in the ideas. (side note: thats a bad thing (side side note: yes I am saying there is something wrong with being truly emo)) Secondly the game play itself was nothing, and I mean absolutely, interesting. Last time I checked the point of a game was to provide entertainment and I was not entertained. It was far too short and unresponsive. I didn't care much for the theme of the game as it is overdone and didn't like your outtake on the matter. The only level worth mentioning is the one where you are floating in some fluid with little "food" organisms and you control the direction and speed with the little controls at the bottom... (by the way the point to that level is to eat the "food") To make it better controls, and regrettably instructions, have to be improved. The storyline needs improvement, like I said no one really likes depressive stories (cheerier stories make for better "plots") That is why I graded you so lowly...

My main problem really is the title.. the artistic flavour doesn't mesh nicely.. the only thing I could think of on the same topic is that coil is a contraceptive placed in the uterus... but even that doesn't help understanding...
