CASUAL PHYSICS BASED MICROORGANISM GAME – IOS
Music by Kane Hazzard
Bitcrobes is part game, part simulation.
Players take on the role of a scientist studying a group of super microorganisms. You can control the microbe and outrun (or eat!) enemies, defeat viruses, and more importantly unlock upgrades to make your microbe even more powerful. Its like pacman, but with more enemies, physics, and upgrades.
As the microbe eats food, and deadbeats enemies the player earns funding. Funding can be spent on bigger levels with more challenges, as well as unlocking a “creative mode” allowing for free form microorganism play. Players can also earn science points which are rare. Science points can be used to alter your microbe with new adaptions such as movement, size, mouth, or utility components.
Controls for the game are fairly simple. Tap to direct your microbe around the screen, and around obstacles. Mini games include defeating viral infections (think space invaders) as well as a gene splicing match 3 game to gain extra points.

It will be released for free on the apple App Store. I’m hoping to finish it in the next month! Bitcrobes is my first game and I hope people will enjoy it.
