Robots have taken over the world, but the animals will help you take it back

Made in 48 hours for the Ludum Dare #32 game jam.

I would have to agree with Setho1992 on this one. The animals weren't used very creatively, just "throw low intelligence objects at machines and hope they break".

And for that kind of gameplay, that level design to accompany it, and that flat of a story, I have to give this a low rating.

The title gave me expectations that were not met.

These are my criticisms:

1. The title made me think that you could turn into animals or turns things into animals that fight for you on their own, not just throw a bunch of animals at things and that's it. This ultimately made the game more closely related to generic shooters (which this pretty much is) rather than help it stand out.

2. The boss was ridiculously easy. Just spamming attack when he landed once was all I had to do.

3. Being 2D, this probably could have been done in Flash so that people who normally use Google Chrome or other browsers that don't support Unity aren't inconvenienced (though I have no idea why Chrome doesn't support Unity anymore... Unity is cool).

I suppose the game was going in the right direction, but could have been a lot better if more was put into it.

Although the game has an interesting idea, the level design restrings the gameplay.

A very unique idea and very fun to play for thirty minutes or so, would love to see an expanded version with a story mode and maybe some upgrades!

good game, baddies could use health bars, esp bosses(?)( couldn't get past the first) could also use a duck and directional attack, i mean, if you're controlling animals anyway why not direction too?
