Oatboy vs. Slime Mold is an attempt at making a fast-paced action game with a unique concept and original game play that would fit in with late-70's/Early-80's Arcade games.
I created the game back in 2013, but a few glaring issues had prevented me from releasing it to itch.io and Game Jolt. This new 2016 version is much better (and a little faster).
From the in-game text...
In this game you take the place of a sentient, mobile, Oat; and you have to keep away from a Slime Mold that, due to some sort of scientific experiment, is really really fast.
You are the "O"; an Oat that has come to life
You are trapped in a room with the "X"; a hungry Slime Mold
The "X" secretes a trail of X's while it moves
Avoid the "X" the wall of X's and secretions
Use the Cursor Keys to do this
If trapped, use your Shield to blast through the secretions
Use the Z Key to do this
Your Shield quickly depletes & becomes useless with use
Your Shield will slowly recharge & become useable again
More Slime Molds will join in the longer you run
