Game Information

Short Introduction: 
In a semi-collaborative race, players strive to finish together, but also become number one - before the resources run out! Its for 1 to 4 players and the controls are on the keyboard: WASD, FCVB, UHJK and the arrows. The theme was "extinction" and we decided to make game, where the game mechanics would become extinct if you use them to much :] Hope you enjoy as much as we enjoyed making it! :D

Brief Play Description: 

You each control a sperm-atozoa on their great journey to reach The
Egg. To get to The Egg you have to move, but there is only a limited
number of left and right movements, therefore you have to co-operate
and economize in order for all of you to reach the egg before the
population of moves are extinct. If this happens your spermatozoa will
be severely handicapped and your chances of reaching the goal will
decline rapidly.

Game controls
You each control a spermatozoa that can go left, right, up and down.
You have to navigate through the environment, while avoiding dangers
and managing your shared limited resources to reach the final goal;
The Egg.

Primary movement
Each movement made by you or one of your friends, will spend some of
the common move-resources. This is symbolized by a stream of move
particles to the player using it. The amount spent is depending on how
long time you move in a specific direction.

Ex. a left move will spend some of the move-left resources and a right
move will spend some of the move-right resources. Forward, and
backwards is free. So, the Move-left and Move-right resources will
slowly replenish, until the number drops to 0 where it will be
extinct.

Remember; the Move resources are shared by all of you, so if ANY of
you uses the last resource you ALL loose that ability, thus making the
game really difficult to complete.

Secondary movement
It is also possible to help each other, to save moves. The players can
push each other in the “right” direction to share (and thereby) save
moves.

Colliding with obstacles will stop you. Colliding with a macrophage
(red monsters) will drain resources and in the end kill you, costing
even more resources.
