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.

The game is too hard and it hasn't got sense. Ok,
1) In the stage 1 you are a little tiny fish and you can eat crabs? maybe they are tiny too, but how a fish can do that? And what are those things? red fish? Maybe you shoulded think for piranhas?
2) There isn't a health bar? Die with oe hit and restart from zero? Ok i don't want to say the game is bad.
3) On the stage 2 you are a lizard ok, but flies doen't sta on the web created by spiders? Why a little lizard meet giant spiders, you are that tiny? And why you can jump 30mc over you with a jump?

Perhaps you are overthinking it a bit.

Good Game i dont agree with the @coolio335.

My thoughts:

The game its pretty solid can be a bit monotonous, doing the same thing but its ok because the game in fact its short and easy to play, the music its ok, graphics are good for this kind of game its colorful and alive.

i give you 4 stars because you did something that not must be done and its lure the player on "fake platforms" which was one of the big mistakes made in the Nes Era, and NO its not about skill or something, what i mean with this?

Stage 2: leafs. while you clearly give a warning to the player that not all the leaves are platforms where you can land safely by eating that worm, you put at least 1 or 2 of those fake leaf on a deadly pit, and its made worse when you are jumping trying to get some food.

its Ok when the death of the player its because his mistake, not because the enviroment, remember that now in day, games always make a difference between background and platforms, you can make a bit darker the colors of the leafs where you cant land. but putting leaf that i cant land because its background on a pit where i will get my food its no okay because the misleading also its worse when you fall and try to save your life.

besides that the game its pretty good, when i read the description i was thinking about EvO too. short and good game to spent the time. keep the good work but dont forget those advices.


AdventureIslands responds:

I honestly didn't expect people to confuse the decoration leaves for platforms. You are right, they should have been made with darker colors or something. Lessons have been learned.

Coolio335 must be a retard if he thinks arrow keys and space bar are frustrating controls.. the game was great, but i was looking forward to being the dragon!


AdventureIslands responds:

It's a real shame I ran out of time to add that in. Flying around would have been cool. Perhaps in improved, more polished sequel? Perhaps one day.
