Pretty interesting game, you kind of get the feeling though at some point there's just going to be too many jellyfish and not enough fish to eat and there's no way around that happening whereever the levels were programmed to be set too high. Maybe add some more different kinds of creatures to interact with and a victory condition.

Simple and clean concept, very nice there. Graphics are also great. The background doesn't get in the way of identifying the fish, good use of color.

Not sure what the benefit of NOT pressing space after the midway point is, so to me it seems like that could be an automatic thing once you get enough points to evolve. It also felt odd to collect a super small fish for 400 points and a giant one for 100. Seems scale of the fish and points they give could have been linked more.

Good game, but too simple. Maybe adding some more tipes of fish or something else to do.

Yet a very good game.

Cool game! Very interesting what you did with two types of fish (evo / time) and enemies (-evo / -time). Kinda remembers arcade race games like Cruis'n World, running against the clock and fighting for each second earned!

I think it looks nice, good colour palette and clean sprites. It started to get interesting later on, when your time was running out.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.

MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
