Evo... launch-ion?

by Chinchilla - Jam Entry

Bah... ran out of time on this one . I kinda like the way it looks... but thats about all :)

I wanted to add multiple evolutionary stages (I even have them modelled) and a few different abilities gained along the way, but I have a habit of putting off the important stuff (like gameplay features and working physics) in favour of playing around with visual effects.

Next time I'll hopefully have a bit more time and energy to devote to LD!

Controls
=========
Smash the left and right cursor keys until they break, then hit space to (evo)launch your fish out of the water.

-Volcanos (evo)launch you up in the air, try to dive into them with the down arrow key!

-Collect the blue scraps of DNA for no discernible reward!

If your fish should fail hit Enter and you'll get a new one to (evo)launch.

too bad there was not an easy way to restart it- (that I knew of) you had to refresh the player to try again. Fun little game non-the-less

haha, that was unexpected.I had fun playing this. Although I like the way it looks, less time on graphics and more on the game might have made it even moren enjoyable, with more varied gameplay.
