Made in one week for Weekly Game Jam 203 with theme "Eat the Enemy".

It has since received numerous improvements.

Hey, addressing the "movement reversing" bug, I'm pretty sure this happens because you're subtracting 1 from his speed every time you eat a person. To fix this, you could subtract half (or a quarter, or a third, etc.) of his current speed each time you eat.

Thanks and yeah I think that'll do it.  I'm doing a lazily written division on the movement speed after every eat, but eventually that number becomes close to zero then negative.

I haven't looked at the source since releasing, but will do in the off time after "downhill" has wrapped.

Edit: Fixed!


It is good but when you you get too big you stop moving otherwise the best game I have ever played


nice one
