Carnivore for Android is a timekiller game, but time isn't the only thing you'll be killing. In fact, there are plenty of bugs and insects that you'll be able to feed to your very own venus fly trap as you watch it grow and transform.
Venus fly traps in the real world are pretty cool - it's fascinating seeing a plant eat another living thing, but in this game, the developers have taken that cool concept and put it to the extreme. With this game, you'll be able to feed your venus fly trap, and over time it will start to evolve and morph into various different shapes.
Unfortunately this game is a little confusing for newcomers. The English translation isn't 100% complete, and you'll sometimes be wondering what you're actually supposed to be doing. To give you a little rundown - the objective of this game is to make your venus fly trap as crazily dangerous as possible. To do this, you can water the plant, which will make it grow over time, or feed it. When you feed your plant, a variety of bugs will be thrown onto the screen, and you can eat the bugs by tapping on them. The watering function can be turned on and off, and it can help your plant to grow slowly when you're not actively playing.
Each bug you eat adds one point to your currency balance, and you can spend your currency in the in-game market for new bug species, better equipment and cool customization options for your venus fly trap. This game really is all about having a bit of fun and trying to make the biggest piranha plant possible.
Carnivore is free, but it takes a lot of patience to morph your venus fly trap if you decide not to spend money on the in-app purchases in the game.
