Balanced Diet was created as a tech demo to show off everything in the smgbalib library. The developer came up with the game idea while feeling sluggish after eating binges. The game is extremely simple, you pick a random selection of 4 foods that push your diet either towards being to unhealthy or being bland. You have to quickly do this all while your hunger rapidly increases.
Its a simple but slightly addictive game, and is a good first game from developer Sebastian Mihai.
Depending on what you eat, the following happen:
- four of a kind – eating four unhealthy or bland foods will greatly shift the balance toward the respective extreme (8x score bonus)
- three of a kind – eating three unhealthy or bland foods will shift the balance toward the respective extreme (4x score bonus)
- balanced (two unhealthy, two bland) – eating two unhealthy and two bland foods will shift the balance either way, randomly determined (no score bonus)
