Johnny Fetus

Your rating: None Average: 2.9 (71 votes)

Two Alien Fetuses in a womb.  

Food slowly descends down the oesophagus /feeding pipe.  Each fetus is fed by a tube from the oesophagus .  Music plays and each tube alternately glows in time withthe music.  
The player must move the control mechanism left and right, keeping in time with the music/glowing.  The time spent between the left and right tubes defines the proportion of the food that is fed to each fetus.
As time progresses the music slowly increases tempo and the rate of glowing increases. If one fetus gets more food than the other then it will slowly mutate into a monster and suck down even more food.  The other fetus will slowly shrivel and lose sucking power.  This will cause the player to over compensate in order to restore feeding balance
Eventually one of the fetuses will overpower the other and cause the smaller fetus to wither and die.  Game over.
