I can show it to my friends at university and tell You what do they think
About the eyes... At the beginig I tought that they are going nuts, but they weren't. The lights in my room were. My mind was blown when I noticed what's happening.
When I launched your app lights in my room started to flicker (a little bit). When I minimised the game, they stopped, when I maximized they started doing it again O_O

It looks a lot like Spore in black and white. The first part, where you're a single cell and have to eat to get bigger and bigger.
I would say, the water effect is too much. Just like when developers want to use a new effect and overdo it. Bloom, HDR, god rays, lens flare and in your case refraction (which is often overused for water or heat effects).
Sometimes less is more and if an effect is starting to have a negative impact on gameplay or usability just toning it down a little can help a lot.
Anyway, I still belive it's a pretty cool project and could be fun to play. For kids and adults, you just have to find a way to keep it interesting for some more time. Slowly introduce new gameplay elements and other stuff.
