Monkeyectomy - iximeow - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Straight from the readme:
Hello and welcome to my second Ludum Dare entry!
I made this in the span of six hours this morning, after two other ideas just didn't work at all.
I had figured I'd drop out of the LD this time around but hey, look what happened today! :D
You may notice it is an incredibly small resolution: it's 160x144, the same resolution as the Gameboy Color. I felt it would be more fitting if I tried to stick to four-six buttons and a small resolution, as I knew the game would be simple.
The instructions are ingame this time around, and hopefully somewhat clear. You (the player) take the role of a Monkey about to undergo an experimental procedure to jumpstart the evolution of the Monkeyman race! I am no geneticist nor very familiar with biology; any resemblence to reality or real science is purely coincidence. There isn't any, though, so don't worry.
There are five buttons relevant to the game: w, s, f, enter, and escape key. Enter moves forward in the menus, and through the instructions. Escape at any time will exit the game. W/S move up and down the section of the genome presented ingame, and F attempts to replace invalid parts (in red) of the Monkeyman genome with parts of the next stage of Monkeymanity (in green)!
If you are too slow to fix the section of the genome shown, you recieve a blast of radiation and the process reverts one stage.
Ninjaedit: For the Linux version you'll have to do chmod +x on LD24.jar itself and then run it.
