Fish In the Mud

by ameliayn - Jam Entry

I couldn't get the replay to work, but I'm pretty proud since this is the first time we've written in ActionScript

The graphics are amazing. There is an obvious lag problem. You may want to remove the bubbles and sludge just so it is a playable demo.

I think the lag problem is fixed now!

Nice flip on the evolution idea. I wish the player moved faster when floating, it would speed up the pace of the game.

I feel as though I could last forever standing on the first block that is just right from the start (you can fall onto it after spawning). It may be better if you spawned on the ground so the attack fish could get you if you do not run away. Could have used a bit more challenge in my opinion, more toxic waste would have done it. Good work though.

Gamblore, how long did you play? The amount of toxic waste increases over time.

The fish didn't really match the rest of the style (which looked pretty good!) I don't see why a fish, even one that doesn't want to evolve, needs to jump to move in the water.

Very good take on the theme.

I... don't think I quite get this game.

Is it possible to jump?

Press space to jump, left and right arrows to move. Avoid the toxic sludge that falls down, avoid the fish with spears, and collect the bubbles to keep your evolution meter down.

You want to keep your evolution bar down for as long as possible.

No lag but once you evolve browser refresh is required to play again. Good looking and quite fun game.

Just a few minutes but I didn't need to move so I ran into an attack fish to end it.

What a stubborn fish. I had to smile when seeing the evolving animation. I expected to evolve into a walking fish. Lasted for 1:29. The main thing I didn't like was that there is a very sudden change in difficulty to the point it was pretty much impossible to avoid evolving. Otherwise, this is a nice entry.

I really like the art. I would have actually preferred everything in the style of the fish which I though had tons of character.

No lag for me, so I guess your fix did the trick!

LOOOL it starts raining toxic waste, survived 1:34. It's kind of not polished enough bit still nice job!
