I wasn't sure why I died. The stairs after the second jump are annoying. Still the concept is interesting.

The text-boxes that pop up when you pass a sign are too big and make it hard to see your bacteria. Other than that, neat idea, I enjoyed playing it.

A very interesting concept and well executed, but all I did was farm points and went right to the giraffe. I liked the mellow guitar in the background, but more sfx would of been nice.

If done right you could do a lot of neat things with this! Very nice entry :)

It was unclear how I was supposed to manage my cells.

Cool idea. I've to see this one expanded. It was frustrating starting the level over when dying. Also some more explanation would be nice. You can get more cells by killing enemies.

Interesting idea, but since the game is a little hard, checkpoints would be really nice !

I like the idea but the game, but couldn't figure out why I was dying. Really cool what I was able to get through though!

Nice graphics, sound and concept. Only problem was you died a lot and often unexpectedly with no explanation why.

It was kinda buggy for me. I got trapped inside the ground and if I hit z after a new life, the camera jumps to where I previously died. Overall, interesting concept.

Took a long time before I realised you get more cells by picking up dots that drop when creatures die. They don't stand out at all. Also I got stuck in a wall after being a bat. Also the massive text boxes at the beginning are irritating.
Good game though once I got into it. Nice concept and I like the music.

Fun game, I enjoyed playing. Agree with others about the large text boxes but other than that it was really good. Smooth controls, and interesting idea. Well done!

Really great idea, would love to see it a little less crashy in chrome!

I love the concept of this game, I'd really like to see a less buggy version.

There's a bug where if you press Z at the start to take over the rat, the screen focuses on a corner of wall and you're stuck there.

Love the concept but the execution was a little off, this could be great with better mechanics!
