Eat, move, divide life is simple when you’re an amoeba. Approximately 1 billion years ago, the Primordial Soup was home to a new life form – amoebas. These amoebas led boring lives of drifting, eating, and occasionally dividing. But now you control a tribe of these organisms and by acquiring Genes, you can influence the development of your amoebas. Do you develop sophisticated movement to swim against the current? Maybe faster cell division or economical cell division? or how about aggression, to allow the eating of other amoebas? 20 different Genes allow for numerous combinations. The player with the most successful species reigns in the Soup.
You control a tribe of amoebas living in Earths past trying to survive in the Primordial Soup. At first, your amoebas just drift along, eating the nutrients that are available. However, soon you will have to figure out how to get to the rapidly depleting supply of nutrients before your opponents amoebas beat you to it. You will purchase rule-breaking Gene cards to give your amoeba capabilities to be the top dog in the Soup. Some of these capabilities include more coordinated movement, longevity, aggression, etc. The player who keeps his amoebas alive and balances the use of his or her Gene cards will reign in the Soup.
