Take photos of hidden animals in a tiny park!
Beware of the wandering mushroom!

Update 1: the first level shows the location of the hiding animal as well as the enemy mushroom.

How to play:
There are animals hiding in the forest, and you have to take photos of them. Every forest has one animal, and once you take a photo you can move to the next forest. There are 30 levels in the game, and your can check your progress in the bottom left corner. If you find all 30 animals you win the game. You have 3 lives (bottom right corner). You lose a life if you let the red mushroom catch you, or if you go too close to the animal. You cannot see too far ahead so walk carefully!

There are cheat codes if you find the game too hard:

UUUULDDDDR to locate the animal, UUULLDDDRR to stop the mushroom!

Up/Down: move
Left/Right: rotate (controls can be flipped in the pause menu).
X: take a photo
Progress is saved automatically, the save can be erased in the pause menu.

Sprites and music is by me, as well as the code except the polyfill function by scgrn

I got to level5, that was a tiny bit confusing at first but once I understood what was happening it was a lot of fun!

this is very cute and well done but absolutely no clue how to play the game.
what is supposed to happen when taking a photo?
what is that 1/30 counter?

Hi, thanks for the feedback! I edited the post and added a 'how to play' section!

thanks - but how does the game decide if that’s a good photo?
should the camera icon be right on a bird?
what does the cone mean?
sorry for being thick !

No problem! The birds in the sky are just visual effects. The animals to look for are on the ground, somewhere among the trees, or at the edge of the world. If you press x but no animal is visible in front of you, there is a shutter effect but nothing else.

Once you happen to see an animal, turn towards it. The camera icon is basically your 'line of sight', it signals the direction where your avatar is actually looking at. If you press x, and there is a visible animal in front of you, the photo appears immediately and you can advance to the next level. The blue cone at the beginning of the first level is a hint: where and what distance your avatar 'sees'.

Hope it helps! Thanks for playing:)

pfeww! got it - the animals are extremely small, the first animal is brown on brown :/
maybe a bit of cueing would help, like sounds or leaves… that would hint a direction.
