Windows
Platform/System: 
Mac OS X+
Platform/System:

Brief Play Description: 

Play as "Hydraman" (or "The Hydramen"), an extremely vulnerable species with only one great advantage: it is extremely resilient, reproducing rapidly and hibernating for millions of years at a time.

Tour Earth from the Pre-Cambrian past into an apocalyptic future, finding safe hibernation spots until you are jarred awake by major catastrophes (extinction events). Remember that any one given Hydraman is entirely expendable- as long as the species goes on.

Wow, what a great mechanic!

I really enjoyed this game a lot. I really like multiplication mechanic, and the way the point of view of the game tracks the biggest cluster of hydramen.

At first I thought this was going to make it too easy, but the meteors in the volcano level wiped me out a few times.
