if you wait in front of a block and a beetle charges at you, it will smash the block!
but i hear you, & i'm making it easier to get into the 2nd biome for the next release

no worries ;)

haha 😂

i like the idea! at the moment i'm thinking its the only one that can fit into tiny gaps, burrowing could be cool though

To get to the new biome in the current demo, get a beetle to smash a block, or get to the top & drop down.
As I add more to the game, i will also unlock more in the demo version!
Hope i can earn your $1 !

I have watched a play through of E.V.O. recently but didn't know of it before starting on Eatvolve
my main inspiration has been Spelunky ! 
so while there will be a main line through the level & a boss,
there will also be freedom to try different approaches, what creatures you eat etc

Posted in phone version?

I'm working on the iphone version at the same time as this windows one,
once they are complete i'll have a look at android!

hehe i appreciate the sentiment ;)

here is my base set of animations;
48x48  sprite
4 frame idle
8 frame movement, first frame is also used as 'land'
2 frame jump
2 frame glide straight
2 frame glide down
2 frame fall
1 frame dead
there is also 3 frames after this for stunned creatures, and the crab and beetle have different anims for shooting & charging
i'm going to have shuffle the frames around once i get the lizards wall climbing working 

Posted in 1$

No worries, hope that i can entice you to buy the new version!

Hey sorry i might have broken the birds ! i'll make sure they are working again for the next version

Hey thanks for playing :D

Hey Lion, thanks!
i'm not sure how the phone app will be priced as yet.
Please think of this version as Early access!

i think Avast is just overzealous! as its just an exe downloaded from the internet!
i can make an installer if you'd prefer?

I'll make a new demo once the game is further along

Posted in BUG FIXED

Yeah! something new to eat !
still working on the ability tho

very few people have paid for the game with pay what you like!

i'm making a demo version now, so there will still be a free one to download shortly

Fair points!
Thanks for taking the time to comment
i'll update the page

Posted in Virus???

thanks for the heads up!
i haven't been putting my build number in the correct place inside Game maker Studio, will make sure to do so in the future
I'll have a look into the unknown developer ! not sure

thanks for the detailed report!
the outline around the character is to indicate evolution, as you change to your new form,
so not intended as a shield! ( though you are invulnerable while evolving )
the wings should also be blinking between the two different types, i'll sort this out in the next version!

I'm still working on how the abilities remain / unlock as you change form,
at the moment you have a 5 creature ability history, even though visually its only 3
but i'm planning a different in-game method of locking an ability as currently its not obvious enough!

It's probably windows UAC that nags you with each new version?
as i am not an official windows developer with a digital certificate
i don't recommend turning UAC off though, if you can live with the pop up?

here are some other options on how to deal with it?

no i like it heaps !
naming your favorite creature is cool idea 😄

aw, i don't think i'm well known enough for a patreon 😥
maybe once eatvolve is finished!?

Posted in bug

yeah! still a lot of work to get the lizard finished, but i thought it would be nice to have something new to eat
I'm not sure why your pc is giving you that warning sorry.. overzealous antivirus?

thank you! :D

I work on Eatvolve in my spare time, my day job is freelance 3d modelling & animation
would love to make it my fulltime thing tho!

Hey thanks for playing :D

Bat wings, spiked shells, and pincers i'd like to do all of these,
and carrying your young is an interesting idea, i'll have a think on it!
i'm planning for an in game reason to lead them somewhere :)
