Dingo Games has released the sequel to their downloadable platformer Tasty Planet called Tasty Planet 2 for the Mac and Windows. Here’s some more information from Dingo Games:
As with any sequel, Back for Seconds has quite a few improvements over the original. Levels can now span vastly different object sizes; players can grow from the size of an amoeba to the size a galaxy within a single level. The game also adds a two player cooperative campaign mode in which each player controls their own goo. This mode is local only, so you’ll have to huddle around the keyboard to take advantage of it.
The game’s story begins with the goo eating a time machine, causing him to be sent back in time. Players will eat their way through six different time periods: modern, Late Cretaceous (i.e. dinosaurs), Ancient Egypt, Ancient Rome, Feudal Japan, and the distant future. Each time period features a unique set of objects for players to eat. Mice, cats, Tyrannosaurus Rex, mummies, gladiators, and flying saucers are just a few of the hundreds of objects available for consumption.
