Blobosphere Evolution Zero - mortehu - 48 Hour Compo Entry

WebGL required.

Firefox users: The submitted version will not work. Use the "Bugfix" version instead, which adds a missing parameter declaration.

Mac users: If you have a single button mouse, use the "K" key instead of the right mouse button. Safari requires that you enable WebGL manually before it starts working (Preferences -> Advanced -> Show Develop).

Liked the idea and graphics. Some background music would be nice. Still looks really nice.

Game didn't work for me, clicking did nothing (Firefox). Tried latest internet explorer, and it complained about not having WebGL.

Really cool implementation of evolution. Also quite challenging. I especially like the "Quests" which also act as tutorial. Very well done.

My highscore: 52482

@AnnoMundi Thanks for pointing this out! It was a pretty stupid bug: https://github.com/mortehu/ludum-dare-24/commit/62356e7bcfefa38b3dd7f1e41a58f666bcafd263

This was surprisingly captivating. The tutorial system is pretty good and non intrusive as well.

Nice evolution principles.. almost feel bad killing those "weak" cells :) Good tutorial.. just too bad there are no sounds :(

Very cool concept, really stressful to get the best cells. The bullet-speed should be faster, as of right now A LOT of the bullets miss the big targets even if they are almost the only one. Should also be able to preserve some mass if you want to divide cells.

Great game, really cool and love the graphic style!

Surprisingly tough little game (or maybe I'm just rubbish ;D ) Pleasant graphics and cute characters (love the expressions on impact). Would've been nice to have some sounds. Very nice though! Interesting take on the theme and well implemented. :)

Very challenging. Love those little guys.

I love the idea and putting them to use! Very nice! I wish this could be refined and the shots were a little more effective at the start...

Even though it's not perfect, I came back and played it again, I liked the concept so much.

It does get a little crazy after a while, though...

Really interesting stuff, well polished mechanics and cute graphics.
One of my favorites so far.

Excellent gameplay! I'd love to see some variations in the enemies, which require you to swap between desired breeding traits as the game progresses. At the moment it seems easy to max out fire rate and you're set.

Really nice game. I have played for about half an hour. :)
It gets too easy after a while but it's still fun.

There's currently a "This website is offline" error.

@evilseanbot Yep, I'm using (very cheap) shared hosting, so it happens from time to time that another customer overloads or crashes the computer. CloudFlare hides that only to some extent.

This is a brilliant concept, and five out of five for theme. It would be great to have some sounds, so you can keep track of what's happening while your eyes are fixed on the bars. Also five stars for graphics: simple but subtle, with the little ones going :O and the screen shaking and the bubble denting and all that.

Great HTML4 Game- I loved it... I didn't quite understand #3.
Would be nice to add music.
