Primordial Soup

Share Collapse

Author Comments

You are a highly acidic amoeba swimming in a pot of "primordial soup".
Your objective is to dissolve 25 of your enemies.
The less insects you destroy, the higher the flames will rise.
If the flames get high enough, you will be boiled.

(I know it doesn't make a scrap of scientific sense, but HEY, it's a game!)

Controls: SPACE to JUMP

This was my submission for the NEW YEAR GAME JAM:

Completed in two days.

Design + Programming : Me

Too easy. but has potential

Music was good and I applaud the simplicity but you can hold down the jump key and never miss....I suggest adding a jump counter and rate your performance on number of jumps used to reach the goal.

Liked the music, but it's too hard.

Not bad. Nice art (although the lid of the pot seems too big). There doesn't seem to be an actual point in moving left and right however, and it got boring faster than I could beat it, since 80% of the game is waiting.

Good for a two day game. However, it needs improvement. If you miss any insects, you lose. No real point to the game. Not even a great time-waster. Try making multiple levels out of it. Make upgrades to the amoeba to make it easier to defeat enemies later in the game. Maybe make it equal to the speed of the bugs that go flying across the screen. I hope you improve this. It has some potential.
