Set on a evolutionary adventure where you must devour the weak and survive against

Here's my entry for Ludum Dare 24! The theme this time was Evolution. Ludum Dare is a world wide game developing contest where participants must work alone and create a game from given theme in under 48 hours.

In this game, you must travel the stages and eat creatures that are smaller than you. After you have eaten
enough, you are ready to evolve and you need to find the stage exit to proceed to the next level. You need to eat around 20 creatures to get a message that you are ready to evolve. You don't have to eat every single creature in the level.

Use arrow keys to move and jump/swim
Use Space to bite.
Use P to pause
- and + to adjust volume
0 to mute/unmute
Esc to return to main menu

NOTE: If the game appears very laggy for you, try different browser. No guarantee, but I've heard it's fixed the problem with some folks.



Rated 4 / 5 stars

Very cute, though a bit of a shame that you couldn't play as the final form (not even a little, to, say, eat some eels). Speaking of eels there wasn't any good reason to reuse them for the final level, crocs would have fitted better. Also, in the second level there was a leaf at the bottom of one of the pits, I was a little surprised (and dead) to find that it doesn't register as a platform.

Still, the game was rather enjoyable!

The third level is a bit rushed because the deadline was closing in, so unfortunately I had to recycle some creatures. Crocodiles or Piranhas would have fit better to the final level I agree.

Pretty good, although it was a little disappointing that you don't actually get to do anything once you've evolved into the dragon, but that's just me... still pretty good.

This really reminded me E.V.O The Search for Eden. The eating enemies and evolving were the key elements. I have been looking for another game to capture the feeling I got as a child of swimming through the first waters of life all the way up to the surface, leveling up and adding horns, legs, big jaws, and this game brought back all those memories. This was a great game and controlled well. The animations were smooth and the art style was nice. If this was done in 48 hours it would be amazing to see what you could do with longer. Keep it up t was amazing.
