Tiny Eco - Truce - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Tiny Eco is my take on Conway's Game of Life, crossed with an old shareware game I played as a kid called "Eco Master". I started about halfway through the competition, so it's rough around the edges, but it's a fun little game/toy with an elaborate simulation driving it.
Construct a small ecosystem out of terrain tiles and place animals into the world. When you click "Lock In", the game of survival begins.
Balance is key: too many hares on a tile and they will reduce the rate at which edible plants grow. Too many foxes on a tile and they'll hunt the hares to extinction. No hares for the foxes and they'll starve.
When the simulation is complete, you will receive points for each surviving animal: 5 points for a fox and 1 for a hare. The highest score on each puzzle is recorded. There are 12 puzzles for you to try.
Hope you enjoy playing! =)
TL;DR - Drag land tiles and animal tokens to complete the map, click Lock In. Watch it go, then reset and try for more points.
