Cellulae

by mariscal - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Hi all! This is my first ludum dare!

I finally did a really simple game based on absorbing the cells that are on screen, but you will only be able to do it with the ones that are smaller than you!

The gameplay is very similar to OSMOS, it wasn't my idea at first, but then the game "evolves" to that ;)

Hope you enjoy it!

Some technical stuff:

I did the game using XNA.

For the graphics I used photoshop, the background music was composed by me using the site: http://www.beatlab.com/

For about ten generations, I was always so big at the end that I never saw a red cell. Then I got a streak of bad luck and everything was red, but I survived for another several generations by eating leftovers and dodging everything.

The idea is great and the first levels are fun, but from level 3 it becomes far too easy, you instantly become enormous and eat everything

Cool game, had fun, but after the second generation I was always bigger than everyone else, so it wasn't a challenge.

So, like the others, I had a problem with the difficulty. The others aspects are good !

Yeah, the more you play the harder it gets, maybe I need to speed up this process to avoid first levels to be far too easy! Thanks for all your comments!

I found that if you get big enough you're bigger than everything at the start of the next wave, it becomes a bit easy after that. The music worked well, fitted the mood of the game. It would have been nice to see some kind of a twist on the osmos mechanic.

Happen to have an installer-less version?

Nice game to chill. 13k score. Nice music and art. Difficulty is too easy in the beginning and then finally kicks in too fast. Enjoyed it! Well done.

Heh, after generation 9 I had no one smaller than me and it was a case of "run awayyyyy!". Fun little game, nice music and pleasant graphics. Well done!

Everything is there, a concept, graphics, sound/music, interface, splash screen, everything good, but none of the exciting.
There is one music loop, the concept is like in some other games (but kinda better), I like that bigger circles get slower, but it's nothing new.

XNA never agrees with WINE...

Couldn't play it due to the file host wanting me to sign up for an account in order to download the install files. Try dropbox next time. This looked pretty cool, but I'm not going to create an account just to access it.
