You evolve. Lower score is better. 0 is for gave up :-(

That was…interesting. I like the idea behind the game. I like that you do let people give up. I’m not sure I understand the scoring system, though. The intro says that a lower score is better and 0 is for giving up. That, to start, doesn’t make sense because 0 is lower than 1, so does that mean giving up is best? But as I evolve and learn new things, my score keeps going up, so I don’t know what that means. It felt like a higher score was better.

The story itself was okay. Again, I liked the idea, I liked discovering things, but it was odd that I died and then evolved. Wouldn’t death kind of be the opposite of evolving? Ah well. It was fun, and I liked that there at least appeared to be options. Of course, with the increases in score, I guess there was primarily the one ending, but it was still entertaining to get to that ending.

It would have been nice if the items had something other than the default pictures, and those items really could have some neat looking things on them. Also, each bit potentially could have had a lot more description on the page about what was going on. A couple pages had some rich descriptions, but most had just a quick statement of facts and then on to the next page. Thank you for sharing the story with the site!

A good idea for a game and it I did find it pretty fun. If expanded it would be fun perhaps to see different sides of evolution, e.g. sacrificing traits to gain others. Also, because of the evolution focus, I thought I was playing as the next generation rather than respawning the same animal, but later events suggested otherwise. Overall, however, not a bad effort :)

I like the idea of evolving your own animal, maybe even watching what happens while generations pass by and a whole species evolves and evolves further, but in this case you did not use this possibility (That is a pity).
You stayed just on one single level with some fighting, climbing and...ehm...flying. The idea is good though.

Interesting idea. Like others I would like to see this expanded, or at least, something like this. Although some might find it annoying, I appreciate that the game recognizes the trial and error nature of itself.

I'm sorry, but this was WAY too short. Maybe you could make it longer?

There's a great idea here with lots of potential but I feel it was published a little too early. Could have made it longer.
