by Azumiar - Compo Entry

Eat other shapes that have less edges than you and be aware to be eaten too.Shapes with more edges can eat you too.When the line gets full white you will get plus one edge until you get to a circle and then you go from a circle to a bigger dot and everything happens again and again until you die.You can get really big

Liked the concept and gameplay a lot! Definitely seemed based off of Agar.io, but hey, it's still fun!

Nice thats definitly agar.io 2.0. Multiplayer mode would be super fun!!

A nice agar.io clone, with sound and smoother graphics it can be a great game.

Nice interpretation of the theme! I liked that the other AI compete with you for dots, felt a lot like playing other players in agar.io! I got pretty big!

Good Game :D

I got to 11,000 - it's a bit slow, but as soon as I figured the eat-shapes-with-less-sides-than-you thing it wasn't bad - with a bit of work it could be fun :)

Nice entry. Well done

While the concept was directly based off of another popular game, this was very well executed, great interpretation of it. Good fun to play.

Fun idea. I like the progression mechanic.

Just getting an error on kongregate. Says I need to enable javascript (I have enabled javascript, of course)

Pretty fun! I especially like seeing the black shapes competing with you to eat stuff and how ominous the giant black shapes can be when they come in from off-screen :D
Overall I gotta copy ito123456789; smoother graphics and some sounds would make it very replayable!

Bit weird that people are saying you're copying Agar.io even though Agar.io was just based on a very common video game trope. Nevertheless, you've managed to put you're own original twist in it and done well with the theme you're given.

Nice job! It's similar with Agar.io, but i liked the shapeshift thing!

Neat idea, but this seemed a bit too easy and slow paced to be much fun - manically dodging fast moving shapes might be more exciting

It was quite a nice idea. I liked the number of sides of your shape determining how strong you were. Very Agario-esque. It was a bit easy. Not bad!

The world needs more single-player games like this, especially as everyone on agar.io now does that ridiculous teaming up cheaty thing on the free for all servers... Ok, where was I? Oh yes, your game. Really solid delivery of this kind of gameplay. I would definitely think about some different AI behaviors to liven it up and increase the challenge.

I like the idea of the game. It's pretty much agar.io, so it's nothing innovative, and the game clearly still needs quite a bit of polish but it's quite good for a 48 hour job!

Apr 18, 2016 @ 6:47pm

Its quiet simple but catchy.I like the overall gameplay.Its fun. Keep going !!

nice simple concept for the theme

Apr 18, 2016 @ 9:00pm

I can't seem to play the game on kongregate, so I won't rate it.

Agar.io, lol. XD
I noticed that you left the physics on too...
The quality of the shapes was also very low.

Pretty neat game!

The game stuck at 978 - zoomed out and I couldn't eat anything :(

Pretty interesting twist on the eat smaller things and grow concept that agar.io is famous for (Especially loved the use of the edges in additions to your size). My only gripe is that for some reason the enemy spawning seems to be very slow (Also I ran into a weird bug where after reaching the line stage twice I was no longer colliding with anything).

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.
