Evolving Enemy

by J00nzu - Jam Entry

Hello, and thanks for wasting your time checking out my game. :D


The idea of the game is very simple:
A cat vs. bunch of evolving AI robots. You are the cat. The AI robots try to destroy you, and you try to destroy them.
Every robot is controlled by a simplified neural network. After every round, the best neural networks make it to the next round, and duplicated to form a full squad. The new AIs are slightly mutated, and tadaa! We got evolution!

And btw. This is in space. :D


I guess this would have otherwise been a compo entry if I hadn't taken the graphics engine source from my previous project ;D


I didn't have time to do any music or sounds because of the time the programming took. So just put something fancy from youtube or spotify
(or whatever you use to listen to music).


Have fun!

It's a bit of fun, but the rocket is very hard to maneuver, and it lacks a proper objective.

that was cool! i had fun with the physics of the missiles and the boxes. I agree with Rellikiox though, it was hard to maneuver and needed some sort of objective! nice job though!

@Rellikiox I'm glad you had at least a bit of fun. The difficulty of the maneuvering is on purpose, but i totally agree that i should've incorporated some sort of an objective. :P


@Brucef Thanks! :D

Hard to control. I liked the physics.

Great physics. A smaller two player map would be amazing.
