Pretty good! Challenging. I got stepped on?

This is fun!

I especially like the evolution to spider. It's so spider-like how it flies its string, measures its distance, and fights cunningly with its poisonous fangs!

If there were more and more evolutions, I would have kept playing.

Nice idea, but it's a bit hard to tell when I'm moving since the floor looks all the same

Great visuals and sounds, I'm getting a definite Binding of Isaac vibe!

The controls are snappy and satisfying and the progression makes me want to play more. My only criticism would be the low amount of visual reference points which often makes it hard to see where you're moving.

Overall one of the best games I've played in this jam :)

Engaging and fun to play, the different upgrades change your options quite considerably which is awesome. Same goes for the noteworthy variety of enemies. Played multiple rounds just to see what kind of bugs there are :D

Some environment/barriers would have been nice. My main problem with this one is how the "You are the bad guy" limitation feels like an afterthought.

Bug: After the first upgrade there are no texts for the upgrade choices.

i feel like with one or two more evolutions it would be a interesting experience :)

I had some troubles with the limitations, first i wanted to make you grow so strong that you are able to leave the basement and conquer the world but i guess that was just me thinking to big for a 3 days jam :D

i will try to improve the game, well i would prefer to have a developer helping me out since i prefer working on art and gamedesign

Thanks for the review im happy you enjoyed it!

The game has great potential. I like the visual, as well as the idea in terms of gameplay. The only thing that catches your eye is that in the beginning it is quite easy to get lost and the game does not immediately give you a chance to play, you need to spend a little time searching for what you need to interact with. I think if you give the player a faster immersion in the mechanics, it will be super cool!

yes thanks! might be a good idea. Well i had enough trouble finishing it in a playable state for the jam but i keep it in mind if i continue working on it.
