Monster Evolution is a Flash Game in which the player must evolve their monster to conquer the world.


Monster Evolution is based around choosing a monster to play as, eating people in a small city to earn points, and using those points to gain access to more powerful monsters. Before beginning the game, players choose one of three difficulty settings: Easy, Normal, or Difficult. Players start at the Evolution tree, where they can pick one of a few monsters. Each monster has different attributes and abilities, and monsters from further up the tree are generally more powerful. Once a monster has been selected, the player can go about eating humans until they are ready to evolve again. Depending on the evolutions the player takes, different monsters will become available. Meanwhile, more powerful enemies will appear as the game continues, forcing the player to evolve quickly to keep up. Once the player has finished evolving by consuming enough enemies, their total score is displayed.


Monster Evolution is controlled using the Arrow Keys and Spacebar. The right and left arrow keys are used to walk and the spacebar is usually used to attack, although there are some monsters where the spacebar is used to change modes. Depending on which monster is being used, the player can use the Up and Down keys to jump, climb up poles, or fly. The menu is accessed with the P key, and players use the mouse when in a menu.


Chasing a victim towards the start of the game.

Monster Evolution uses only a few basic colors. Civilians are black and white, dangerous enemies are purple, the monsters are mostly black with the occasional yellow, red, and white features, the city's platforms and poles are all in black, and the background is mostly yellow and orange. This clear-cut color scheme makes it easy to distinguish threats and navigate around the city.


Monster Evolution was one of the first hits of 2009, and was featured on the front page a day after release.[1] As of December 2010, the game has over half a million views and an average review of 8.6/10. It is also featured in the Action Games collection.
