    Eyehawk: I have no idea. Just started coding the tongue and the other gameplay concepts came to me xD

    I'm intrigued by the idea of having to compete with my own offspring :).

    This was a lot of fun but I am not sure what it has to do with the theme. Nice job!!!

    hehe I had a lot of fun with this one, cute sounds too

    Aug 28, 2012 @ 3:28am

    Very fun! LOL cloning, super-long-distance eating and saliva sprays, fun for all here!

    haha, neat game. i would've preferred mouse controls for the tongue, though!

    Genuinely funny. I think you meant to say "mitosis," there doesn't seem to be any sexual reproduction going on (as I interpret it).

    So funny. :)

    I like camera movement, especially zoom out when your clone is near.

    Interesting. I like it, good work.

    Fun but I don't see how the game play relates to the theme.

    Neat little game. Enjoyed it! If you decide to work on this further, you could think of implementing powerups (longer tongue?) and maybe giving the player a bit more advantage when it comes to evading clones, for example by slowing down gameplay for a split-second before you get eaten.

    Funny idea, sadly, I didn't find the gameplay to be all that fun, since it was highly repetitive. Also didn't like the tongue controls too much, mouse could've worked pretty well for that. Music would've been nice.

    Considering you made this in such a short time, it did feel really polished. Nice one.

    Space HAAAAAAMMMM. Excellent. Got that precious high score for now.

    Haha, the saliva particles are pretty awesome. And the creature noise when your player gets devoured by your clones is funny too.
    Nice graphics, I like the way the tongue looks dynamically generated.

    Cute, simple, and fun! A little disturbing though!

    Fun to play! I'm amazed it was made in just one day!

    Fun, but my death came quickly.

    @chamberlainpi The tongue IS dynamically generated :P curveTo().

    Give me a flamethrower, this creature must disapear :D
    I had a good laugh, well done :)

    Aug 28, 2012 @ 7:24pm

    Enjoyable, fun game kinda like a mix up between smash tv and asteroids, but with tongues, ha, the controls worked surprsingly well also, got to level 7 with 36200 points.

    I like the fast pace of movement. Controlling the tongue angle with arrow keys felt new to me, so innovation points from that. Suitable graphics (bonus points for parallax stuff in background). Minimalistic audio, but pleasing. I love how the character looks happy after getting some ham.

    That's some serious saliva action. Pretty impressive for just a day's work!

    Aug 28, 2012 @ 9:24pm

    Very funny game. A little bit annoying you cannot zoom out to see where your clones are and you can only spot them when it is too late.

    This is pretty fun.

    Fun to play, funny, and impressive that you did it in one day.

    Aug 29, 2012 @ 1:38am

    pretty fun game :) I found the controls and overall game play got repetitive though. Neat idea with the tongue and movement being controlled separately but in parallel

    Kassoon says ...
    Aug 29, 2012 @ 8:42pm

    Cool idea, gameplay was pretty fun, but I couldn't play for very long cause the speed of the scrolling background made me feel sick. I could see the potential though!

    Aug 29, 2012 @ 8:58pm

    Ahah, hilarious :)
    Baby version of Lickitung from Pokemon xD ?
    Too bad for the music, it adds a nice mood in your post-comp :)

    Great humor and a fun game to play.

    Funny game :D Good job !

    infernet89 says ...
    Aug 31, 2012 @ 7:32pm

    Cute eyes for the ham is a good reason to play this. Very good work!

    Amusing :) Good feedback loop with the offspring slowing increasing the threat as you become more successful.

    The little details like the space saliva and the cute blink whenever you ate something were really nice. This game would have been so much more awesome with a chaotic soundtrack in the background though! The game itself was really fun.

    Great reuse of resources, fighting ones self (or clones) is always a surreal experience, doing so as a space ham with a giant tongue is even more so. I don't know whether to praise you, or call for the men in white coats to come and get you. Since I don't have the phone number for the men in white coats, I guess I will have to praise you.

    Really fun to play! I especially liked the feeling of speed I had, and the way the camera zoomed out and said "look out" when you were near one of your offsprings! And there is such adrenaline rush when you get chased by them!

    keenblaze says ...
    Sep 4, 2012 @ 7:14pm

    Very nice entry! Love smooth controls and graphics!

    Pretty fun. I would have liked it if you had multiple lives; it seems like I always die as soon as there's enough clones for the game to start getting intense.
