# Forever Hungry

Made in 554 chars of Pico-8 for TweetTweetJam 6.

Cute little guy must keep eating to grow or it'll just shrink back to a young larvae. Luckily those delicious redish things can help you grow up to impressive length. Since the game starts slowing down at 700, let's consider this score a winning condition!
