Puzzle Of Life is a mind-bending logical game about evolution where you help primordial organisms to emerge.

Developed during the Castle Game Jam 2018.


About the Game

The game starts with a single RNA based organism/bacteria similar to Cyanobacteria already present in the environment. By applying green or blue chemical effects you start building two different DNA strands (animals: blue, plats: green). During the following two levels you can create a more complex animal or plant specimens by applying a mixture of blue and green DNA enhancing effects (! Only one effect application per level is allowed).

Game Rules:

Goal

The goal of the game is to advance as many animal or plant organisms to earn the highest score.

Evolution:

  • Animals

You can advance a blue animal organism by applying blue DNA effect to keep its genetic material pure.

You can advance blue animal organism by applying green DNA effect to make it a “new” blue-green and more complex organism.

But you kill “new“ blue-green animal organism by applying old blue DNA effect, therefore, stunting its development process.

  • Plants

You can advance a green plant organism by applying green DNA effect to keep its genetic material pure.

You can advance green plant organism by applying blue DNA effect to make it a “new” green-blue and more complex organism.

But you kill “new“ green-blue plant organism by applying old green DNA effect, therefore, stunting its development process.

DNA effects

  • Red square always kills.
  • Blue square either advances or kills depending on the rules mentioned above.
  • Green square either advances or kills depending on the rules mentioned above. In addition, its special ability is spawning original Cyanobacteria (on an empty square) which give you a possibility of creating and advancing animal or plant life.
