Alpaca Evolution is a mobile game developed and published by Cocosola Inc. It's very difficult to try and put this game into a recognisable category, since it is one of the weirdest videogames you will ever see. Alpaca Evolution consists of creating the most powerful alpaca of the fields by absorbing other poor alpacas.
The game for itself isn't much of a marvel, graphically speaking. It has just three colors with some little variations, only a few different textures and its seems to have been drawn by a kid with watercolors. The music is not even outstanding - it seems like it has been borrowed from Heidi's TV cartoons, though thinking about it, it fits perfectly with Alpaca Evolution (at least until your alpaca becomes a weird mutant animal). Nevertheless, Alpaca Evolution has been very successful. It has achieved more than 4 million downloads in its first four months and more the following weeks, reaching the 5 million downloads up to day .
What is the reason for its incredible success? Maybe, its simplicity since the only thing you have to do is to tap again and again. However, I think that it is mere curiosity. You will keep on playing, even though you think the game is a total waste of your time, just for the curiosity of how your alpaca can evolve and which weird creature it will turn into.
As mentioned, Alpaca Evolution consists of knocking out your alpaca friends and absorbing them to become a mutant alpaca. Personally, I feel very bad for the rest of the poker-faced alpacas on the screen. They look so innocent, getting closer to their mutant alpaca mate without caring about why it looks so creepy, and then they are hit and absorbed. Nevertheless, my curiosity about how the mutant alpaca zero is going to evolve makes me keep hitting innocent alpacas.

Doing it is quite simple; you just have to tap on an alpaca to hit it and knock it unconscious. In order to absorb your alpaca pal, you have to tap on it again, and that is all. Now you are a remorseless mutant alpaca able to absorb your friends. Take into account that alpacas can recover after being hit, they are not dead. Therefore, it is better if you absorb the alpacas quickly and you avoid them the pain.
The more evolved you are, the more alpacas you are going to need to evolve again. This can be a drawback since the screen takes a few minutes to be filled with alpacas again. This way, you can do your daily activities, and when you remember you have Alpaca Evolution on your phone, get a glimpse and hit more alpacas to complete new stages.
