I opted to use the speaker input for my Android keyboard entry. Duo doesn't know or care that I'm speaking written answers. It also helps with spelling (I'm not aiming to be an author, i just want to speak the language reasonably well, so this "cheat" doesn't impact my goals negatively).
A whole sentence cannot "be in" Accusative. Only a part of the sentence can take Accusative.
"Złe zwierzę" is in Nominative, because it's the subject of the sentence. Then you have the verb "je", and like most transitive verbs (verbs that take grammatical objects), it takes a direct object in Accusative: "mięso".
- "zwierzę" is neuter, so "złe" matches it. The neuter form of "dobry" is "dobre".
- when negating an adjective in it's basic form, "nie" is glued to the adjective: "niedobre".
- putting "nie" before the adjective doesn't exactly have to create it's antonym. "niedobre" is a weaker word than "złe". And for example it's often used as "not tasty".
