There might be some problem with the web version of the game so I recommend downloading the game instead.

The main objective of the game is to keep an ecosystem in equilibrium using guns, lightning and meteor

So basically there is 3 species in the game which is the Slimes, Rabbits and the Rhinos. If one of the three species became extinct then it's game over.


Controls:

WASD - Move around the planet

Mouse - Aim

Left Mouse Button - Use Gun: Can be used every 0.15 seconds

Right Mouse Button - Use Lightning: Can be used every 2.0 seconds

SpaceBar - Drop an explosive Meteor: Can be used every 4.0 seconds

Left Shift Button: Faster movement around the planet.

Mouse Scroll Wheel : Zoom In and Out of the planet.


Behaviour:

Slimes:

- Moves very slowly

- Multiplies itself by two every 10 seconds

- There can only be a maximum of 150 slimes in the game

- If the population of the slime is between 50 - 100, then they will reproduce every 20 seconds.

- If the population of the slime is between 100 - 150, then they will reproduce every 30 seconds.

- Once the population of the slimes reached 150, then the slimes will stop reproducing for a while.

- They only have a life time of 80 seconds or 1.333 minute

Once the population of the slimes reached 150, the slimes can no longer reproduce themselves.

Rabbits:

- Moves twice as fast as Slimes

- If there is a nearby slime, a rabbit will eat it and a new rabbit will spawn.

- They only have a life time of 140 seconds or 2.333 minutes

Rhinos:

- Moves thrice as fast as Slimes

- If there is a nearby rabbit, a rhino will eat it and a new rhino will spawn.

- Doesn't eat slimes

- They only have a life time of 200 seconds or 3.333 minutes

If you are rating my game for the Ludum Dare please don't rate it from the post-jam build. Instead rate the version I created in 3 days for the ludum dare.


BUG FIXES:

  • Some Rhinos move away from the planet forever making them impossible to go extinct (which is a large problem).
  • Higher damage from guns and lightning to prevent the animals not dying which slows the game and makes it unplayable.
  • Removed the fastest mode from quality settings because it prevents the slimes from moving and makes the game unplayable
  • UI Scaling problem for people with a monitor aspect ratio different from 16:9 because the button can be outside the game boundaries and makes the game unplayable (makes people stuck on the menu screen)
