Enjoyable little game, design, music and sounds are really nice, it's a pity that the gameplay get's boring quickly because there are no real decisions to be made.


Great little game! Fits the theme well, simple but cute graphics. It manages to tell a story in only a few minutes.


Great game!


Fun, cute, clever, and interesting! Can't say enough good about this game.


I can't vote this one as my fav because i didn't make a game, but it was. full of humour and the grapling was very satisfying! I bet the explosive apples are a reference to a game we know well haha.  Overall my favorite so far, seeing the duck run further everytime sort of reminded me of a self learning AI


Thank you for comment. In fact, the bombs are copied over and recolored, as the rules allowed that :D Really glad you liked it


Very unique idea, love the concept and the humor! One of my favourites from all I  have played yet

PS: I noticed a problem on the web version. On the part of the apple trees, the game get freeze and starts to flicker, I wasnt able to continue after that. But executable version (windows) works perfect!


I had this problem too


Sorry to hear you guys had problems. Thank you for sticking to the downloads! I am very glad you guys enjoyed it


You should consider removing the web version, I almost gave up before I saw these comments. I downloaded the Mac version and it worked fine.


You are probably right, it caused more trouble than good. Thanks for your feedback!


A wonderful concept executed to near damn perfection. Really impressed with this one, the humor, art, sound, gameplay... everything comes together in a whole, cohesive piece. All I want is more!

The web-version does not seem to be working properly though!

5/5 would play again, already recommended it to my friends.


Thank you so much for the kind words Golden! Enjoyed your ( a bit bizarro) entry as well :)


adore the concept, and the musings of Dr. Chirple are laugh-out-loud funny. It's let down slightly when you realise that there is no decision-making to be done in which combination of genes you should use, but what it does, it does very well. Short, but very memorable.


You put your finger on the point that I had to cut out - it simply was out of scope this time. I'm very glad you enjoyed it, thank you for playing!
