It's time to eat or be eaten. Or at least, that's the simulation we need you to run in this cute and clever logic puzzle. Ensure that only one critter remains at the end of each level by mastering their unique movement patterns.

Kinda weird, kinda fun. Only passed the first 5 experiments so far, but my real life experiments are no calling me. I like the music and the background and the diversity. I can see this one getting pretty hard towards the end. It might be nice to see the whole field to plan your experiment, but maybe that's just part of the challenge

You know the colored trails the creatures leave behind as they move? When you finish a puzzle and zoom out, the trails can make some very eye-appealing designs.

I like it! The animals are kinda cute and the concept is sound, the puzzles usually aren't extremely challenging but it's a nice lunch break. The sounds can get a tad obnoxious, but I think I can put that behind me. For SCIENCE!

"Specie" is not the singular of "species"...

Other than that, perhaps not a fresh mechanic, but still an interesting game. Nerdy pickup lines in the background were pretty amusing.

The ability to zoom out and see the whole board (shift) was useful, and so is the grid (g). It was interesting to see the patterns left behind by your movement.

Pretty fun. I think I prefer the random puzzles, because the standard 15 are sort of set up so that you solve them more by following the level's hint rather than by logic. I could do without the background, though.

It doesn't seem to recognize my spacebar in Google Chrome. It runs okay in Mozilla.

What do I do about falling off the edge of the world? In a puzzle I can hit escape, but it looks like if I fall off the menu I have to refresh.

@PlasmaSheep What? I could have zoomed out the whole time? That sure would have made it easier XD

Can't believe you didn't mention the awful, awful pickup lines that display in the background (no those are just random lines of code).

The game itself isn't anything new (both in concept and the fact that its been around for a while), but its a fun and simple distraction. Most of the levels can be done just by trying the "don't leave anything behind before moving on" route, sort of splitting each level into several mini levels. Although some will still require you to zoom out and think a while.

The random 2-by-2 levels wouldn't challenge a 5-year old, but the 20-by-20s are impossible to plan ahead in. So I recommend you choose one in between.

For the snake, just press 2 arrows at the same time. For example, if you want to move to the upper right, press both the up and right arrows.

I refuse to play any game which doesn't include a mute option. Especially if the game insist on constantly playing horrible, horrible music.

I tried lowering the volume from that amusing options menu, but the damn fish jumps down and the volume stays the same. What's worse, once I started doing the "experiments" I couldn't even return to the main menu. And when level 6 decided to suddenly up the nausea level of the music tenfold, I quickly quit before my ears decided to self-destruct.

I was initally annoyed with the obtuse way in but now I think I'm happily in love with this game.

Oh and baba44713 - 'mute' is 'm'

This game didn't do anything for me at all, and I normally love puzzle games.

It was just too easy, and not even in that "Yay! I finally beat a game!" kind of way... more like a "I just randomly solved FIVE LEVELS without trying" kind of way.
