One hit kill is a little harsh but I really liked the changing character and how hunger was the driving force.

Cool game. Web version was slow sometimes, but still liked it.

Thank you for the great feedback! For Kongregate maybe we will give the mammut a shield or think of some other way to reduce the one hit difficulty. The game is easier once you figured out which evolutionary state is good for which part of the level, but its still hard (our programmer was never able to finish it). Sorry sev_inf for the slow down, we tried to reduce it as much as possible in the last hour, but as we hacked here and there due to the time limit we did not have time to fully optimize it.

Fun, but hard. What if getting hit just made you get really hungry instead of one-hit killing you?

Fun concept, but just a little too difficult.

I like that you could interact with the scenery and got quite excited about seeing what I would involve into next.

It´s a little bit difficult but fun. We like the evolution. Great job.

I enjoyed discovering all the evolution forms, but I didn't made it till the boss since the hunger killed me everytime.
Nice and difficult as a scroller should be.

Cute game!
Changing the character and particle system are perfect.

Pretty good overall, but I'd agree the one hit kills are a bit much - why not just a de-evolution or something?
