Darwin In Space - Misericorde - 48 Hour Compo Entry

I wasn't really inspired by the theme but I thought the idea of Darwin-Ape fighting against an army of angry Priests in Space with bananas for the sake of the earth was pretty fun.
So I tried, but I couldn't do everything I wanted to.
It's my second game ever and it's pretty empty but I'm kinda proud of it, don't know why.

And I wanted to thanks the creator(s) of sfxr and Autotracker.

Should be called "Starwin"

That's actually a great idea.

I would add a "dont hit me" enemy and another level of difficulty

Fun little minigame. It's a bit like the game I made.

Why is Darwin floating in space, shooting bananas at alien-priests? I don't care, but it's fun! Well done. Would add more animations/different enemies.

It's a bit on the easy side, shot down all priest on my first try :). While the sprite graphics are pretty nice I would've liked to se a more detailed background!

For your second game ever, it's really good.

It's silly, congratulations on finishing!

Well put together little game. I thought you did a great job on execution as everything looked good and did what I expected without any bugs or glitches. The game itself was very straightforward and after destroying a few priests I felt things got a little boring. It would be nice to see different styles of enemies and perhaps some gimmick with the banana bullets so that the player has to think a bit more.

Well that was random, and to think I thought my game's link to evolution was tenuous!

A nice fun little reactions game. Nicely done.

As others have said, a bit more variation would have been good.

No windows here! Are you still porting your game?

Haha. This is... quite something. I have to ask, why do the priests have flashy blue cyber-eyes?

Misericorde says ...
Aug 27, 2012 @ 3:34pm

Because they are Alien-priests of course.

Sorry, my graphics card is to old apparently:(

Not bad!

Haha, this deserves a 5 star rating for humour for sure. Gameplay was a bit too repetitive, though. Same enemy over and over, just faster. I was able to beat the game without even getting hit. I would've preferred if the game doesn't have an ending, and the goal was to rack up a highscore instead. (Enemies killed / Time survived)

Yay, I killed all alien priests without losing any citisens!

Yay. Science won. I would have made this but I'm not that brave. I went with a more subtle approach.

Would have liked to see a giant Pope mother-ship boss battle.

I'm so glad someone made an amusing Darwin game, nice and simple

It's okay everyone. Science won.

Quite simple, but well made.

Very nice art.. too bad there is only one kind of enemy.

Yay! Science won!
Good job on the humorous symbolism.
