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.

Dear LORD, is this game cute! My little lizard dude is just the most adorable killing machine I've ever seen! I just wanna squeeze his little scaly cheeks!

Squeeing aside, this is a pretty well put-together little game. The pixel art style is very charming, and I may or may not have had a bit too much fun trying to eat every single edible creature in each area. The first time I went through this, however, I kept falling in the EXACT SAME PIT OF WATER in the dinosaur level multiple times. It was pretty dumb, but I still enjoyed the experience as a whole. The controls could've possibly been tweaked a bit, but I feel like that's a discussion for people with more knowledge of game design than I. Would definitely play it again just to kill a few minutes.

Cool idea and I had fun playing, love the pixel style.

Epic

I like it but the controls are horrendous

I'm not going to criticise the game for length, it was made in two days, come on people. But there are a few things that I think should be changed. For one, the dinosaur stage should be able to swim instead of dying every time, and there should be a level select and an option to go to the menu.
