Attack of the killer cute things!

by Waynetron - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Fight your way through waves of cute little monsters, each with randomly mutated traits.

The most successful monster in each wave has its traits passed down to the next generation.

My best score so far is 275 creatures killed (A lucky combination of weak monsters and good powerups mostly). Would love to know if anyone beats it though.

I think I'll do a post-compo version with more monster stats and traits. There currently isn't enough variety to where the how the monsters can evolve. Any suggestions for new traits to add would also be great!

Pretty character graphics, but didn't feel hooked to the game. Might just copy that art style though!

I like how his eyes light up whenever you fire.

Great graphics and a lot of variety in the gameplay. I got fast tiny things that did 50 damage per hit. :/

cute graphics, good difficulty curve. Some animations on the monsters would be good.

Extremely awesome graphics and gameplay but the noises were a bit irratating but everything else was well made.

Nice graphics and style, but the game play was a bit repetive - perhaps have powerups and more enemy types to vary it a bit.

Nice graphics and sound. Not sure where the evolution is, but pretty fun to play :)

I murdered 45 adorable creatures, hooray! This was a fun little game, nice graphics. Creature behaviour did seem to change over time

Good graphics but a bit repetitive as said in comments. The aspect of the game is very neat.

OH NO THE ENDING SCREEN IS RIGHT.

It mightn't been nice if the enemies had an animated reaction to being pelted.

Good little game.
It could have been nice to graphically differentiate enemy's projectiles from ours, sometimes it's easy to get confused.

Enjoyed the game.. the step up in difficulty at level 3 was slightly abrupt, but a fun game.. Not sure where the evolution theme came into this. Overall enjoyable.. and I loved the end comment ;)
