a bit unintuitive, what's the effect of hunger and scent ? do the creatures reproduce somehow ? what does positive/negative mutation do ? (virus or creature?)

Not sure what to do :) Clicked on creature and waited for results. However game is looking nice.

I enjoyed the simulation side of this, it was quite hard to affect the game enough to win, but I liked the idea of making creatures immune to other strains or killing them etc. High marks for theme and innovation

It's interesting how much better a texture makes simple shapes look; the graphics appear professional with the light gradient and the rough texture. Not really all that fun, but kind of interesting.

Not sure how I affect the game. I liked the presentation though.

Looks great with the textures and all, but there are some gameplay issues. Virus B didn't make it through the first five seconds of the game. I started making all my creatures immune to C, which got me 90% of the way there, but then some remained that were infected with C but immune to A, so I couldn't do anything to get them. Also, I don't see what the point is of killing a creature that is carrying your virus around, and the effect of mutations was also never explained.
