Appetite for Extinction

Game Information
screenshot
Short Introduction: 
Gods get bored so they challenge each others on a regular basis. Today, Ray the Evil challenges all the gods to be as evil as he is. The rules are simple, multiply a living species and extinct it, the whole thing in a minute! Competitors have 30 seconds to create as many creatures as possible and then have to be able to kill them all as quickly!
Platform/System: 
Windows
Platform/System: 
Web standard (Html5, Java, JavaScript, Flash)
Brief Play Description: 

For the first step you have 13 priests that can generate Eden gardens for you worshippers to breed! Bigger gardens will produce a lot more humans, but beware, gardens stop growing when humans touch them.
After this comes the good part, at least for you...
You can kill your creations with lightnings (simple click) or use your priests to invoke meteors (hold click for 1 second).
Try to keep you priests alive as long as possible, the power of your meteors rely on them.

This game is wonderful, in a terrible, mass-murdering sort of way. The gameplay forces the player to walk a fine line between having creating a lot of followers while still being able to exterminate them all in the end. Inspired gameplay combined with a fantastic art style just begs for this game to be ported to a smartphone platform (android/ios).
