Lead the Meerkats
You are a young meerkat who has been separated from your pack and the time has come for you to form your own meerkat pack. Dig burrow networks to enlarge your territory and forage for food to grow in size. Don't let your guard down - run to the safety of the burrows or fight your enemies when you have to. Lead your pack to victory and rule the savanna!
Art Style: PENTA TENTACLES
A microscopic masterpiece from the genre-redefining Art Style series! As a tiny tentacled organism, you have one simple purpose: to grow. Swim through the primordial ooze, using your tentacles to absorb other organisms whose colour matches that of each tentacle. Match the colours correctly and the tentacle grows; mismatch and you lose a life – and some of your tentacles.
