Game of Life^2
A downloadable game for Windows
In Game of Life2, you must choose between making different types of cells, each with their own job, to score as many points as possible. Harvesters will give you points to make more cells, Farmers will occasionally make food which causes cells to live longer and have a temporary increase in efficiency, and Defenders protect your cells from being eaten by enemies.
This game was made for the LowRezJam. The challenge was to make a game with the size of 64 pixels by 64 pixels, but I took it a step further and went with only 32 pixels by 32 pixels. At times, it was a struggle - no actually, most of the time it was a struggle. The hardest part, in my opinion, was getting text to fit and still be readable, although I think in the end it came out alright!
