Mytosys - NexusSteve - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Control the spore by using "A" and "D".

Use the float ability; when the large ring shrinks to the size of the small ring and turns green, press "SPACE". Correct timing will make you float upwards.

Collect green spores to evolve.

Avoid red spores - cause damage.

*Did not have much time to optimize, when you collide with an object, it takes a second to delete.*

*Float action is sort of incomplete and not refined.*

I liked the setting and music a lot. The gameplay had me very confused. It seemed impossible to reach or avoid the different things at times. I'm still not sure what "floating" is or how it works. I tried to activate floating by timing presses of the space key but it went much too fast after a few successful hits.

Thanks for your play through and reply. The floating was a bit last minute, I updated the notes to explain it a bit more.

really confusing on how to play. Floating is still a mystery

I agree with aschearer, the background and the audio add to a nice atmosphere. Floating seemed repeatedly not to work in early stages of the game. Later it worked without problem. Maybe it was only my bad timing :)

Floating is confusing/doesn't work.

I really liked the idea of a cell dividing, but I couldn't quite muster the floating/moving part. Was I moving left and right the background wasn't? Would love to see this idea worked on a bit more outside LD ;)

Haha, I won! Oh, that was over fast. It was fun while it lasted.

Even at the end screen, I can still get turned briefly by a red virus.

I cannot run it. The application stops working as soon as I press Space :(

Unable to run on Windows 7 64bit, seems this was set up as 32 bit only.

Like aschearer, I liked the setting and music, but the gameplay was really hard to control.

I don't think I ever successfully floated and it wasn't clear how to collect the green things (but that might have just been the "it takes a few seconds to delete objects" thing you warned about). It was fun to watch though, and I love the name.

Really good feel to it with the music, and the sort of floating rhythm of the pieces in the game :)

Very short, but well done!
I think more feedback is needed when you press space in time or collect a green spore. Graphics and sound are outstanding.

Nice and simple idea for gamplay. Enjoyed playing it. What i would add is some more visible response to acquiring green cells.
