Slimevolution

by Pixelulsar - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Please don't rate until you evolve a few times, because it starts slow!

~~~WASD to move~~~
~~~Arrows to shoot once you've evolved enough~~~

First dodge enemies, then destroy them when you get strong enough. Play as a little slime that must evolve to survive! Defeat Bats and alligators, get friends and eat alligator ham. Made in AS3 using FlashPunk. Hope you enjoy! Thanks to NewGrounds for featuring my game!

It's a bit of a slow start to get going, but the graphics are beautiful

The theme can get a bit annoying after the first minute or so. The controls are a bit slippery and often don't respond to my button presses which often leads to me crashing into bats and alligators a about 1 second after I press the button. The graphics look great though!

Graphics are great, but I had a hard time killing bats effectively. I got to level 4!

The way it opens up is brilliant, the way you create that learn by playing, Aha! feeling is great, and i really think you did an excellent job interpreting the theme. As each successive power up came more innovative abilities, and the game mechanic is extremely well done, and innovative, I think you've got the beginnings of a really cool project here, and I think you could really make something cool out of it with some time and polish. Well done man!

Interesting, although I think using the theme as get power-ups throughout the game will be pretty over-used.

Good job with graphics

Nice graphics. Fun to play.

Very slow at the start, but quite good after a couple of evolutions. A bit annoying to lose all your progress from a single hit though :(

The graphics are pretty :)

I like it a lot.
Really cute characters. The first couple of evolutions take too long, I'd speed that part up. It would also be nice if the evolutions were reflected visually in the slime character somehow. Nice work!

I should have sped up the starting stages, and I wish I had time to make it so you could see the effect of evolution, but I ran out.

Nice progression of enemies, beautiful graphics, smooth framerate and feels very polished and playtested overall.

Nice game.

it's a shame that French keyboard have to switch in qwerty.

Nice graphics, good build, clever changes. I like it!

It came to the point where i was like, "attack up? What do I attack with?" Some instructions would have been nice!

That slime is ADORABLE! Yes, my standard for everything is how adorable it is.
The music is a tad irritating after a while, though...

I didn't have time to add instructions in game, but they are the 2nd and 3rd lines in this post right under the link...

I stuck on level 4. I tried 5 times before giving up because of the slow start and the annoying music. despite this, the game is very fun to play and the gfx are pretty good. I like especially the grass tile.

Nice visual style. "Get friends and eat alligator ham" made me laugh.

Really enjoyed this game. Made me play more wanting to know what the next enemies/evolutions were. awesome art style!

@LuizHGMonclar I know, I only got stuck for a few minutes I got past it.

Ohh okay! I thought you got stuck permanently :} Okay, sorry! :)

Augh! Got to stage 7 on my first try and got sloppy, killing a guy by the top of the screen only to have another come immediately. Awesome game, I disagree with everyone above about the pacing, felt just right. LD judges are the most impatient people alive.

The instant kill is very annoying. Since monsters can spawn very near to you, it is more likely to die by accident.
Nevertheless the game is still very entertaining and has good looking graphics. :)

Good use of theme. Unique controls that where fun! I've not encountered something like that before! Good job!

Very nice graphics. Gameplay does indeed take its time, but the controls work fine and the enemies are nicely tuned to your abilities. Good effort.

Love the graphics, the music got a bit annoying after a while and it didn't feel particularly challenging.

Good 8-bit music, like the low tones. Enjoyed the game, and it related to the theme well. Good job! Ha, I just looked back at your comment to me and you liked my music etc too. Funny!

wonderful game - very nice graphic style too

Nice game, with some challenge. Too bad it starts soooo sloooow. It really hurts the fun in the game, since you have to start all over again.

The audio was a bit annoying too (i ended up muting it)

Nice entry nonetheless

I like this nice graphics. And flower growing animation.
But I think, that flowers must grow more often and creature must have lives/healt count (and collect them while playing). Because I die often :)

Fun game! I loved the look of it. I wish it had some amount of checkpointing instead of one hit making you start all the way over again.

Graphics and sound work well together. Overall I like the idea and I think it plays out very well! I think the player should be able to shoot straight out the gate though, cause having to start over without being able to attack is rough.

Wow, you have an actual touch with pixel art, I envy you. Hope my games would be so fun as this one :)
