    === STORY ===
    Evolution looks cool but things can go wrong.
    You have to stop the evolution of a new life form !

    Why ? Because one day they will steal our ideas and violate our patents.

    Thoses life form are agile, unpredictable and they can divide themself or even revive from a dead body.

    Burn that sh*t as quick as you can !

    Cool entry ! I had fun playing a it. I was surprised to see the monster shades after they die but then I remembered the revive thing... Is it linked ? Because none of them revived even if I was waiting for it.

    Yep Amoeba can splits and revive from dead corpses.

    sorry for the freeze, i don't know if it's legal to fix memory leaks, my pooling system is not finished ^^

    No source provided? I was very interested in the graphic of the explosion and the flame behind the ship!

    I finished this game in about 20 seconds. Was it supposed to be that short? It was fun while it lasted, the music was not to my tastes though.

    The music didn't really fit, but the enemies looked pretty sweet. I had a good laugh at the memory leak bit at the end!

    It was fun but I didn't notice any lose conditions besides maybe the memory leak killing the game if you don't win fast enough. At the credits it says you made it for Ludum Dare #25? I guess you're gonna get a lot of feedback before then! xD

    The graphics were really nice, but I wish there was more to the game, it's too short! I also didn't enjoy the music, not a fan of dubstep or whatever it's called.

    Like the art style, and the flow of the game. It feels like a shooter. The music fits; fast paced and fun. Not sure I understood the evolution aspect, the only thing I saw change was the colors. It did freeze up on me twice, maybe that's the endgame? ;) Overall, I'd say the concept is good and you'd only need to add different creatures and some sort of level progression.

    Aug 29, 2012 @ 5:46am

    Nice graphics, great music. Not sure about the story and evolution aspect, and because there was no way to lose, it got very boring very quickly. There is the beginnings of a solid shooter in there, though!

    Thx for feedback :)

    Yep, i want to create different waves :
    first amoeba, then fishes, amphibians, reptiles, mammals and finally zombies :D

    but i ran out of time ^^

    Very cool atmosphere! Really good work on graphics. Not sure exactly what I was doing, but it seemed nice and it appears that I was battling some computer bugs as well. =)

    Good game! I enjoyed it very much while it lasted. My only complaint is that it was too short! The graphics are great and unlike some others, I liked the music. Definitely got something to build on here with this game. Solid start!! Well done!
