Here's my entry for Ludum Dare 24! The theme this time was Evolution.

Set on a evolutionary adventure where you must devour the weak and survive against
the strong so you may evolve and reach the top of the food chain!

In this game, you must travel the stages and eat creatures that are smaller than you. After you have eaten
enough, you are ready to evolve and you need to find the stage exit to proceed to the next level.

Use arrow keys to move and jump/swim
Use Space to bite.
Use P to pause
- and + to adjust volume
0 to mute/unmute
Esc to return to main menu

As always, the graphics are great! Maybe it was just me, but I found the game to be pretty hard. Getting a bite to land was challenging at times, as well, since you couldn't be too close to the creature you're trying to eat. Overall, pretty cool! Reminds me of EVO.

I've played and finished EVO long time ago and it was the inspiration behind this game. Agreed that the game is a bit tough, I didn't have time to properly test it, should have increased the biting collision box size.

just played a few minutes so I haven't beat the first level yet but the game seems wonderful :)
however the controls are not comfortable to me (seem ok for left-handed), may I suggest adding the controls wad+space ?

Nice!!

maybe is just me; but the gravity is a little too strong;
when "falling", it's like the fish is not inside water

Great!!

The fact you can make all that in 24h (all the gfx etc!), very impressive indeed :)

The game got into front page of Newgrounds!

Also I've updated the Newgrounds and Kongregate versions with slightly improved controls and bigger biting area, so the game should be less hassle to play now.

3rd of the month? Where does that show? :D Also the game has been on the front page for over a week now, weird! Someone in the staff must really like it or something, I don't think any of my previous games was features more than couple of days.
