Arrow Keys: Move
Space: Change colour of the characters

You control multiple players in the game. Your aim is to merge all your players into one. Merging happens when two players stand in the exact same position, and causes a splodey effect, so you should be able to see it. When you've merged all the players, the background changes colour.

Most of the people jumping around are AIs, which you don't control. They're just distractions - they cannot merge with you or each other. They look exactly like you though, so it makes it hard to figure out who you're controlling.

The edges loop, so if a character falls off the screen they'll appear at the top.

Inspired by my random level generator (click image below to see it). I wanted to make something where you could jump around and play on those types of levels. So I programmed this! When doing that I thought it might be interesting to have the ground change as time passes, which is something that's fairly easy to do with perlin noise and flash. So I did that. I also added the little merging thing as a fun little game.

I used a lot of the code from Generic Adventure Game. Click the image below if you want to play it!

It's fun to just watch the AIs jump around as the ground changes...

This would be pretty fun in a multiplayer game, if the ground was constantly changing beneath your feet

Using cellular automata to generate a tilemap for a platformer? 
That's... oddly enough something I haven't seen before :O

Really interesting concept, hope to see more of this stuff :D

This isn't really a cellular automata, it uses Perlin noise at a really low resolution. But yeah, I think it could be interesting!

tip: find the guy who is NOT moving. :D

Yep! Another idea is to jump without moving. As all the computer players always move, your characters will be the only ones jumping vertically
