Wyrmling: First Hunt is a  reaction- and strategy-based infinite sidescroller created in two days for #LOWREZJAM.  Aim for a high score while savagely devouring anything that moves, and the occasional robin egg. Don't forget to sneak away from enemies, and sneak up on prey!

What you can eat:

  • Birds: difficult to approach without startling, but worth the most points when pounced upon.
  • Bird eggs: they won't even see you coming.
  • Stray campers: will run away unless you're very quiet, but they're pretty out of shape.

What you can't eat:

  • Spear traps: must be carefully jumped over. Watch out for prickly bits.
  • Wolves: fast and dangerous, but can't see anything below their own noses. Sneak until they're out of sight.

At a score of 200, you level up! With increased speed and jumping ability, you can snap birds out of the air, and soar backwards over charging wolves.
