Nice little simulation! Fascinating to watch.
With the current map it did seem to be quite unlikely for a population to survive for a longer amount of time. I figured if they reach one of the smaller side pools the may reach some sort of balance, but it was very unlikely with the current settings that enough blobs jumped into a small pool at once.
Would have been cool to have some settings to play around with or maps to choose from and see how it affects the population. Also the generated color palettes were pretty nice imo :)
