This is an old, crusty attempt at an arcade-style game I made back in 2018; I really only put it up for the sake of archiving my old work as the original website I uploaded it to is awful and won't load it.

The storyline I came up with was that the main character is an ancient hominid dude who is kidnapped by aliens, all of which are based on food. Your goal is to use your spit to subdue the aliens and then eat 'em, before they reach the monolith and - in what I believe is a 2001: A Space Odyssey reference - regress you into a baby?? Also, in what is definitely a Dr. Slump reference, you gain one coil of pink poop to use to clear through enemies below you, in a game where the action is mostly horizontal.

You'll notice that the helicopter apple girls only face right (I couldn't figure out how to dynamically flip them within the Construct 3 limit), the graphics look super-anti-aliased (I didn't consider the resolution of anything when creating the sprites), and it's generally not a very good game. If this was blammed, I would entirely understand why. Still, I'd hate to see this game entirely lost to the sands of time - so, if you have like 5 minutes to burn... I guess there's worse things to do?

Music is taken from Tim Follin's Silver Surfer soundtrack for NES. He doesn't seem to mind use of his older work so long as it's not for profit, and the publisher for the game is long dead, so I figure it's safe to use.
