Ludum Dare 23
April 20th-23rd 2012 :: 10 Year Anniversary! :: Theme: Tiny World
Nematode - danblack - 48 Hour Compo Entry
My tiny world is viewed through a telescope and populated by colourful Nematode worms. The aim is to create worms with specific patterns by feeding them the right coloured food in the right order. They have a habit of turning at the wrong time though or eating the wrong coloured food.
-Left click drops food.
-The colour of the next piece of food in shown in the bottom right hand corner.
-When a worm eats a piece of food that colour is added to the front of their body.
-The worm you are trying to match the colours of is in the bottom left hand corner.
-Your score is shown on the left and the time remaining on the right
-Matching a worm gives you points and more time
-When the timer reaches zero its game over.
When worms get older / longer they die and make way for new worms. Try to feed longer worms to get rid of them quicker to make way for smaller worms.
The sequence of colours must be in the correct order from front to back. If you have to create a match to a worm with a red head and blue tail first find a single blue worm. Then feeding it one piece of red food will create a match.
The worms move at different speeds. Try and find slower worms to feed for matches and try and get rid of fater worms by feeding them up quickly.
It seems my instruction wrinting skills are weak. I knew the game was fiddly to play but I didn't realise the concept was tricky that tricky to grasp. I will try and describe it again now I have had more sleep.
There is a worm shown in a box the bottom left corner. The aim is to feed the worms randomly milling around the screen to that they match the length and colours of the worm in the box.
You can't control worms directly but you can drop food in front of them to feed them. The next colour food in displayed in the bottom right. So if you have to match a worm that has a red head and a blue tail you need to find a worm that is just a single blue dot and feed it some red food. You will then get points and more time for getting a match and another target worm for you to try and match will appear in the bottom left hand corner. Rinse and repeat.
