ALLEL

by rodrigomotta - Jam Entry

So, this is the result of our first participation in the Ludum Dare game jam. The game is a shooter with microscopic evolution of single-celled creatures, called allels, or something. We liked the final result because the gameplay was very fun and frenetic, and the theme "evolution" was very present: evolve to survive. The survival of their species depends on how much you evolve. It was a fun work made by just two guys, that's it.

To play Allel, use WASD to control the character and shoot everything that moves using the mouse button.

* Cool graphics and animations;
* Frenetic gameplay;
* Balancing to play forever and ever;
* Original soundtrack;

Coming soon:

* Autofire;
* Leaderboard;

Bugs:

- Enemies "recede" and AI;
- Character shoot after 5 evolutions;

Cool game, I always love robotron/geometry war type games - in fact my entry is the same. The only thing that needs fixing is you really need autofire, which is ironically is the same thing I should have added to my own game:)

Good game. And good playing around theme. But so fast gameplay for me... but very addictive. Good job, man!

Great game, very well balanced and very good looking. I liked the fact that the enemies can also absorb power-ups, it adds a lot of depth to an otherwise simple game.

The only criticism I have is that pressing the mouse button repeatedly is very unconfortable (not to mention it's bad for our health, and for the mouse >_>), if you could fire continuously by keeping the mouse button pressed, this would be a 10/10 game (I'd definitely play it again if you change that!)

very very fun! I especially like the point where you shoot huge bullets :)

Impressive twin-stick-shooter! Love the presentation, from the graphics to the sound.

One minor quibble is the pick-ups looking very similar to the enemies. You aren't naturally inclined to pick them up. I also believe enemy-ai could've gotten more self-growing itself, that would be a lot of fun :)

@amidos2006: Thank you man! =)

@chambers: Thanks. Yes, the prototype some problems. We already include the autofire. We will update this weekend. Thanks for "10/10" =)

@Christina: hhahah thanks! I think this game is very fun too.

@matthias: Thanks dude. Yes, the enemies AI need be fixed. The enemies behavior must be exactly equal to the "character". =)

Very cool game. As others have said, autofire would make it much better.

rodrigomotta says ...
Sep 1, 2012 @ 4:58am

Yes @zatyka, we will upgrade this weekend with autofire. =)

The background looks very cool :D
I wish I could keep shooting with a sustained click.

Muito bom, mais um grupo brasileiro participando, isso é bem legal para o mercado brasileiro de games, o jogo ficou bem legal, a arte ficou show, eu achei a ideia tambem muito boa.Depois da uma olhada no meu, sou estudante de programação no colegio NAVE no rio de janeiro

Cool game, i enjoyed playing it even if the difficulty is a bit frustrating (especially the annoying sound when you lose an evolution :p)

Nice game. I like the mechanic, but I don't know why it runs so slow... It was barely playable for me :/

When you are 4cells and fire 4 balls I guess that their powerattack is less than when you are bigger and only throw one ball, isnt it?
so much clicking , lol

Level 80, 10min10s, 29120 when I finally decided to call it quits ;D Nice game :)

@Oye Beto: Thanks. I lost time in the background because it is the only visual element of the game, besides the characters. Its very important. Autofire is coming. =)

@sev_inf: Thanks, i like addictive games. ;D

@90sml: hahahah thanks! Really, the game must be balance. I will fix this soon.

@bobiniki: slow? oh, god. I dont understand. Sorry.

@juaxix: hshuahua no no, its a bug. Sorry. =)

@zkenshin: Oh my god, level 80? You must play this game when we upgrade with leaderboard.

Fast paced and fun!!! OMG my hands are sore with playing (but in a good way). Simple concept (sometimes those are the best) executed well. Your proposed autofire addition would be awesome! Well done!

the framerate seemed a bit jerky to me for an arcade game. i thought the sound was pretty good, and the swirly background added a nice bit of atmosphere.

@thewiseguy99: hasshuauh thanks man. I think made a fun game, really. And I will develop this game, for real.

@tomhunt: I love the background too. ;D
