What's wrong with WASD :-)
Game looks very good.

Very cool game. Nicely done. Can't pass 2000, but it is great fun - very addictive and simple.
You have almost same idea as mine :D

P.S. Shiva3D have very powerful HTML5 exporter, you can use it for embedded game too.

Same. Why not WASD? The W/Q thing is so frustrating :S

Nice visual style

Nice game, a bit confusing as there's just food hurtling to you at breakneck speeds and you're just trying to figure out which control does what.

The gameplay wasn't really my style, I found it a little too confusing, but that might be me. Maybe if you balance it a bit, so it starts a bit easier and you can get into the rhythm, it would've been better.

It could be much enjoyable if restarting was easier, because it is very easy to die.

Control mapping isn't very fun, to be honest.

I love the visual part of the game, and the sound is well suited for the game. alright the way I have to control the game is a bit strange, but I did not find it too difficult to lean. So overall well done.

Good game with very cool graphics. After a while playing I started to relax a bit with the chill music the suddenly it gets too fast way too soon and I was like WHAAAT??? ... then I started to play a bit more seriously and the game got challenging. Still ... I feel like there is too much of everything so I always end up dying after 1 or 2 minutes. i also noticed I was always playing on the bottom side of the pipe cause the funky tunnel gravity was a bit weird for me :). Awesome game overall and a very nice job indeed. +1

Some pretty looking visuals and catchy sound. It is like Candy Crush and Super Hexagon had a baby :D

Nice overall! I'd have preferred if it was a little faster, but maybe I'm just too addicted to Super Hexagon ;)

I love the bonus mechanic which forces you to switch forms. Did you do the 2D art of the guy on the game over and victory screens as well?

Fun game! :) I liked the gameplay, and as I like eating, I was in my universe :) Great work!

Thanks for the comments and the ideas to improve it !
@Ryusui, yes i did everything (3D and 2D art included ^^) except the music.

Fun game! Too hard when you try to get them all! Maybe if you started with less shapes to transform to and unlock them as you advance, it would be easier to memorize the transformations' keys.
Good Job!

I felt like the shapeshifting didn't really contribute much because it was too fast to be able to switch between them in time. I found that I was mostly just sticking to one shape and treating everything else as an obstacle.

Hi, nice game ! We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #35.
Can you add your game on indiexpo.net ? (it's free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)
p.s. write #LDJAM in the game's description

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
