Review by Wolfzen:
This is one of the most randomest games I’ve ever played. You begin as some type of animal I’m guessing, and you have to keep eating the other animals that won’t kill you, and eventually go to different levels.
I’ve never gotten too far, so I’m not 100% sure about how well I understood the game.
The more edible creatures you eat, the more you grow.
It’s a bit confusing in the beginning, so let me explain a bit of the controls for your ease. You use the analog stick only, basically, and eat these weird organisms. These organisms come in two main types; aggressive or submissive. Usually most of them are submissive, meaning that they run when you try to eat them, and generally easy to consume. The other aggressive type is the one that you can eat, but you have to find it’s weak spot so it doesn’t eat YOU first. When it eats you, it can take your ‘segments’ that you gathered from eating other organisms. If they completely consume you….
I’ll leave that an innocent secret for you to find out.
There are two specially colored organisms that move the player up or down, on all except the first and last area, which only have one.
Once you complete one creature and make it to the last floor, you can continue to another creature.
If you like repetitive games, such as Flappy Birds, you may enjoy playing this. I give it a 6/10 for being unique and also pretty interesting. If it was more story based however, I would rate it higher, so it’s heavily biased on my opinion.
Try it now and see how much weird animals you can eat before you get eaten in a battle featuring predator and prey!
