You are an Axolotl! Your eggs have been whisked away by a freak storm and are now raining from the sky!

Catch, kick, pickup, and throw them to group them by color and help them to hatch before time runs out!

Don't let them stack too high or they will be stolen by birds!

Inspired by the NES classic game Wario's Woods, but with a few differences.

  • Line up 3 or more of the same color/symbol egg to hatch them
  • Matches count horizontally, vertically, and diagonally - and YES carried eggs can match!
  • Birds will take eggs from the highest row!

Controls

  • Movement: WASD / Arrow Keys
  • Pickup / Toss: L / X
  • Kick: K / C
  • Pause: Escape / P

Or, try a gamepad!

3 Different Game Modes!

Normal Mode

  • There is a blue bar on the left that fills up with hatched eggs - fill it up to complete the level!
  • The red bar on the right is Time - if it runs out, you lose!
  • Stolen eggs will reduce remaining time!
  • There are 10 levels that increase in difficulty.

Survival Mode

  • No time limit - survive as long as you can!
  • Number of Egg Colors and Drop Rate increases over time!
  • Stolen eggs will cost you a Heart - lose the game when all hearts are lost

Endless Mode

  • No time-limit, goals, or lose-conditions! Play as long as you want!
  • Number of Egg Colors and Drop Rate increases over time!
  • Stolen eggs will only cost score.

Was this by any chance inspired by Ted's playthrough of Warios Woods on SBB?

I can neither confirm nor deny... ;)

Although I had watched those videos  some time before we started talking about the mechanics of this game for the Game Jam......

Hii, I've made a video about the game and wanted to share some feedback about it, hopefully it is useful to you ^^

-The concept of the game is awesome, I really like it ^^

-The gameplay mechanics are really interesting and original for a "match 3" game, but I'll say that having a first time tutorial on your first game/round would benefit the game or moving more close to the top the "how to play" button.

-The visual style of the game is really amazing, it totally fits the game and is really cute and enjoyable.

Hopefully this is useful to you :D, also if you could subscribe that would help me a lot :)

Regards
