There's in-game help. I revised this game because I was 13 when I made it and the title and text were hopelessly naïve and insensitive, but trying to strike it out of history didn't seem right. I'm sorry.

Tried to play two times, first time it crashed when I died, second time it crashed few seconds after I ate fruit. I liked the sounds and idea, will try to play again if you fix the crashes.

It crashed a lot on one of the people who beta tested the game, too. It has never crashed on me (well, at least not this version). I don't know why it's crashing, he sent me the terminal output and he was getting normal FPS and no stack trace. So it's not a performance issue and it's not an exception. I do have a few more ideas, so I'll try to fix the crashes as soon as I can. It would be helpful to know your OS and JVM version, too.

I enjoyed this a lot. The platforming elements need some refinement, but I like the idea and I like your implementation of 'evolution.'

No crashes for me. But this game was hard. Could not kill more than one enemy, and I died myself 10 times. Maybe I did something wrong.
Other then that I think your idea was very interesting.

Maacus: Yes, it is rather hard. I usually upgrade agility and avoid battle at first and then start upgrading health like crazy when those guys that can kill you in one hit start showing up. Then I go in and try to kill them. I usually fail, too.
Gidaio: Thanks, I'm glad you liked it! About the platforming element needing refinement, you're talking about jumping, right? Ha, yeah, this way of jumping does seem a bit crude, but I think that in the long run it's better.

Could use some more instructions ingame. overall though it was fun.

Liked the idea. And the link to evolution is string. Although There is very little food to pick up and there's quite a few major bugs (i can clone for free and my clones can hurt me) Audio is ok, and i like the visual style. Just needed more play testing i recon and you'd be on to something really nice.

Neat! For some reason I just really liked the splash screen. =)

Great idea and start. You really have something here. Definitely something to build on. Some move etc instructions would have been fab!! Good job though
