    -2 or more organisms adjacent to a smaller-sized organism causes them to eat it and mate
    -combining organisms fills the evo-gauge a bit
    -When the bar is full, if the smaller organism is exactly one level beneath them, they create a new organism!

    Unlock all the organisms to win!

    Awesome! Nice job on the monochrome colours. The Gameplay was also on par with the graphics

    Haha. A great little puzzler. At first, when I didn't understand the rules, I managed to block off the leftmost column with just the smallest organism, leaving me with just a 3x4 grid. I struggled ahead, and won. Loved the ending screen!

    Great entry! Felt very retro because of the graphics. I also liked the puzzle a lot.

    Love the Game Boy graphics! At first I thought the mechanics was like Triple Town, but they are actually fully original - very interesting concept.

    Really nice mechanics - reminded me of Triple Town (in a good way). I think it could have worked better with a different theme - the "grass, bush, tree, hut" progression of Triple Town worked better then the "one circle, two circle, three circle" of this game. Could be worth expanding on.

    Great puzzle. You my friend are a pixel whisperer.

    Lovely graphics! Seems really easy at the start, but requires some thinking toward the end, nice progression.

    I applaud your genius, it takes a special sort of mind that can put evolution in a grid based puzzle game. You stayed true to the theme while taking your game in a completely different direction than most participants. Entries like this is why I love Ludum Dare.

    Very very nice. I didn't want to give up until I'd completed it & I actually laughed out loud when I finally did & saw the ending screen. Well done!

    Really cool! I love the gameboy colors and the music and sound effects were really good.

    Wow, very well polished game, with a great graphical style! I felt I was back at the Gameboy era! The gameplay itself was pretty neat too, although a bit on the easy side.

    On a side note, I would double the FPS on your timelapse. I find that 3-5 minutes is an optimal time for those.

    Thanks for the game!
