Update: After all the positive reviews and some fresh ideas, i have decided to start work on version 1.2 which will incorporate the following features:

- Easier to tell apart powerups with characteristics to what they do
- A small twist with enemies (don't want to spoil it)
- I think 3 new game modes... kind of like "Survival", not sure how many difficulty levels they will have...
- More variety of music
- Even more powerups
- Different graphics? Maybe choosing your animal species...
- More once i remember all i have planned lol


Hey, Aldarn again! You may be thinking "why the hell is he submitting this again?", well the answer is this had had some MAJOR updates including bug fixes, the game now remembers your preferances, 5 extra songs (to try and have something for everyone), two extra powerups, better hittesting, more animations, fixed difficulty settings, fixed sometimes only reds on screen, now theres almost always some greens there and loads of other stuff, too much to list here! Well, please enjoy, if theres anything you feel needs updating etc etc let me know in your review and i'll see what i can do about it! However, unless i make a version 2 (no idea what would be improved...) then this will be the final version. Enjoy!

P.S. Plase support the artists by buying their album if you enjoy the song, thanx! All music property of their respected owners.

Simply made, the graphics are non existent except for the power-ups (I dont consider static images moving around graphics. and the game play was ridiculously simplistic. pretty much a cliche to every cheaply made small fish eat smaller fish game out there.
Ive seen better

Bearing in mind i made this 5 years ago..................................


also yea my graphics are crap *shrug*

[edit] make that 6 years :S


You told me to check the new version, so here I am.
It was actually pretty cool, but I didn't really get the little animal inside the ball. The music choice was eh but at least you could shut it off. The background pictures were nice, and the upgrades made you lose AND win faster at the same time (you run for it and die/you get it and live). You kept the mace thing when you lose, and I don't get that either, but it was funny how you had the difficulty setting "Ultra Hard." The speed choice was cool too. Overall it was a pretty fun game, but in the future you may want to improve the graphics and I guess fuse the spawn zone into the background picture. I still like the "the bigger you get, the more stuff you can eat" idea, which isn't all that creative, but it's still good in the way you use it.

Simple but superb.

The graphics were very simple, but yet, they were all that was needed. I like the blob-eat-blob style. My favorite thing aside from the addictive gameplay was the music selection. Thanks for putting Perfect Dark in there; it's a great song. Keep up the excellent work!

Aldarnc responds:

Thank you very much, i checked on newgrounds today after a long while, and only just noticed this got a medal :). soo happy lol, glad you enjoyed the game... i hope i can make some better versions in future!

great game

over all it kept me occupied for more than an hour, very tedious. perionally i like the songs you chose.

Aldarnc responds:

glad you enjoyed it :-)

Very Nice

Really cool game I was so close to beating ultra insane mode. Well anyway good chice of music most graphics were ok but when your little guy got really big it was a little choppy around the edges. Plus if you could make the Place mine and Detonate buttons a little closer together that would be cool. Otherwise great game.

Aldarnc responds:

Ok i will re-think the keyboard controls. I had to make the Xion lower in quality because otherwise it really lagged the game.
