They Need To Be Fed, by Jesse Venbrux, and published by YoYo Games, is a 2D 360 degree platform game. It is like Super Mario Galaxy but 2D. The newest version can be bought on the iTunes App Store for $0.99. It is also available for $1.10 on Android.
In the game, players need to feed their character to a starving monster at the end of the level. There are 8 levels in each world and 7 worlds in the game. There are also diamonds to collect, but players don't need to get them all to finish a level, yet must collect some to unlock more worlds. If they get 99 diamonds they unlock the X (8th) level in each world.
One of the reasons the newest version is one of the first published by YoYo Games on the YoYo Games Store is because it won 1st place in the 5th YoYo Games competition. The theme for the competition was to design a handheld game. Jesse Venbrux also won 1st place in the 1st YoYo Games competition with Frozzd, which uses a different game engine, also based on the 360° gravity system.
The original game is similar to the new one, but it is shorter and has a different scoring system. The new version has 7 worlds instead of 5, but omits the tutorial world of the original. Also, the original was free and only designed for PC.
Lots of material here are facts from the game itself, whether the newer or original.
