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.

YESSS! I loved EVO when I was a kid. This is a clear homage to a very underplayed Super Nintendo classic. Isn't it now? ;)


AdventureIslands responds:

Yeah this is pretty inspired by EVO, perhaps I make a sequel closer to it, too.

A simple and "cute" game (sorry if that's what you weren't going for! As others have said, it is a bit short, but a nice time killer and a break from the intense button mashers. Not bad for a 2-day developed game. I also found the controls just fine.

On the tadpole stage, some small blue fish were hidden in the rocks/background. You could see the tail if you looked hard enough, and can still eat them, but unsure whether that's a glitch or not. Also, you can die by going through the bottom holes? Huh? Kind of makes sense...

On the dinosaur stage, birds fly backwards? lol...
