Strange but very well put together. Awesome job!

Everything looks like it fits together! However, I found that it was impossible to maintain my hunger, and died after only a few screens. It might be intentional, but it made the game quite short!

@lectvs, it's very difficult, but I is possible to beat.

Very well put together, dig the pixel art and chiptune. Great work!

All 200 pixels are well polished :)

Strange, but great graphics. Fits together well, great art, great sound. I died after the third screen I believe, wasn't able to kill the enemies fast enough to get to the shrooms.

Mmmm Mushrooms,

Instructions could have been clearer. there was no mention of what to do with chickens.

I loved the graphics though :)

What am I playing as? :p

Fun game, very polished. A little short and easy, but this is great work.

I too couldn't figure out how to replenish hunger. Also, the first time I played I levelled up much faster than the others, so that was confusing.

Very complete, like the art style and the fact I get to beat up beasties without being hurt myself. All I need is my shrooms... SHRROOOOMS. Would be cool to see an expanded game with powerups (speed boost, increased damage, shrooms?) and more levels. Felt a bit short, died only once, but still enjoyable.

It was nice to look at and run around in, the damage indicator s on the spiders were a bit confusing though.

Evolve by eating shrooms. Sounds like Terence McKenna :)
It's a fun game. Very difficult though.

I love the art style, and the music :) There's a huge disparity between the nice tune and the sound effects, lol. Fun overall.

Looks like a solid almost complete game, which is pretty cool for a compo entry (have only played that) :-)

Excellent art! But a little short :P

I like visuals and audio... but game is so hard for me. I die very fast.
Also can't figure out where evolution. Good job anyway!

Like the art and the general feel of the controls. However, better attack animations would have been great (especially for vertical attacks)
Good job!

Nice, cute graphics but I don't like the time limit :)
