Gene Binder

by xhunterko - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Can you figure out how to evolve correctly? Find out in this short game!

How to play:

The bottom 4 genes can combine with the genes in the pattern. Click on a gene on the bottom, then click on a gene in the pattern to see if they can combine. If it can, it'll switch to another gene. There is only one solution per puzzle.

Level Goal:

The goal of each level is to first find out which gene is wrong, then swap it out with other genes until you get the gene that is supposed to go there.

Once I figured out how to actually play (which took me a minute despite you tutorial) I was actually sad that there weren't more levels. I smell day one DLC here ;)
An extra layer of gameplay would have been nice.

Yeah. I definitely had more in mind, and was gonna make one more, but ran out of time. Heh. I'm putting in more content sometime this week. Thanks for playing/rating!

Kind of confusing but I think i got it a little by the end...A restart button would definantly help out...

I wasn't 100 percent sure what to do, despite your tutorial, looks interesting though.

@Rabbits: Do you mean for a level? Or the entire game? Cause at the win screen if you click you go back to the menu. I thought about an undo button, but, again, ran out of time. Thanks for playing!

@kevincorrigan I can't seem to do tutorials right for some reason. Any suggestions? Thanks for playing!

I really wasn't sure what the goal of each level was.... but I still managed to beat it somehow.

I still don't get it. A better tutorial would be nice. Nice try though :)

Thank you! I'll work on that tutorial for the next build.

It's a shame it's so short...

More than a bit confusing. The concept seems interesting, and I was able to figure out how to change genes with a little trial and error, but it's not quite clear what the goal is. Reminds me of that time I tried to learn to play Foldit... could be cool with some more levels and more explanation.

Hey there! Glad you liked it! Can't do much for the graphics, but I'll definitely try and get some music in there. Thanks for playing!
