Evolve - jerombd - 48 Hour Compo Entry

"Click on the items to maximize the asteroid."
Minimalistic gameplay but fun illustrations (12 endings) ;)

Click to play
F4 fullscreen/windowscreen
Graphics made with Photoshop CS4
Music was generated by (c) http://tones.wolfram.com/

Not the most innovative game (yeah it's a Grow-like), but I'm pretty satisfied with this first LD entry!

The graphics are wonderful, as I expected! It refreshing to see great graphics that aren't pixel art.
I suppose you were clearly inspired by Grow (I hope so...because if not, you just invented an awesome gameplay that was invented some years ago ^^)
I also loved the planets' names, that was a great idea, and it makes me want to fail many times to find all of them.
Actually, I'm thinking it would have been even better if the goal wasn't to find the good planet, but to find them all...I mean...they're all great!

Screen stayed white, when I tried to start it using Wine on Linux.

Great! I loved how you fail when you give candy to the dino's :D

@kddenkadenz I don't use Linux but this code is not optimized so maybe that's why it crashes on Wine...

Fun combinations and great graphics.

This game is adorable. Art is beautiful and I went out of my way to find every permutation of planets. Great job!

Description says it all! Great graphics. Saw most of the endings. I got 100% on first try too! :-)

A simple idea but well executed. Awesome art, you are talented. As Pierrec said, it could easily become some kind of collectible game because you want to see everything, it keeps you replaying !

Love the art of the game, and the planet are quite fun too. I think i found them all quite quickly, i tried the Pierrec objective

First of all: yes, I find this not innovating !
But who care of innovationin front of your game : Great graphisms, musics and humor , simple control and a perfect sense of "retry it"!! I like to discover alls combos and ever when I failed, i don't mind because I was seeing a Alien picnic area!
For me , it was a cool vision and a funny game with a bright "touch" inside of him!

Apr 25, 2012 @ 8:15pm

I like it, but then again, I made a game with a similar concept:)

lots of fun. I have no real complaints.

absolutely stunning graphics, way to go! The music was effective too. I would have preferred not to black out the screen completely between changes. It would be cheap to leave the GUI where it is and just make the earth black. It would give you something to rest your eyes on. As it is, it makes me feel a bit uneasy. And then I look at the new awesome art and I'm happy again ^-^ Top marks for graphics

I LOVE THIS GAME!

Ir's just what an LD should be: Very simple, but very entertaining, and shows proffesionality.

How many endings are there?

It's a really good, funny entry but unless you made some special arrangement with them, you CAN'T USE WOLFRAM TONES! Read their terms of use!
