Nice storyline, but doesn't seem to have an end? Not sure how the theme fits in as well. 

Maybe it's just because I'm not a huge fan of survival game mechanics, but I feel like this needs something more in the core loop than just fulfilling two ever-draining life bars. Perhaps there was more later, but I just couldn't bring myself to go back and try again after I died. The art is nice and the music is nice, and there could be something there with the wacky mutator concept. But there really just needs to be something more to the core loop to hook the player.

Interesting idea, but suffer from a bit odd controls. Overall a good game :)

Really cool! Interesting idea and seeing all the effects was pretty fun. Perhaps a bit slower than it needed to be but not necessarily, it fit with the aesthetics and the rest of the game.
