Smacking those fish is so incredibly satisfying!!! LOL
Great job on this one, the graphics are superb and the sound effects really give it that realistic smacking feel! Lots of fun to be had with this one. Excellent submission! (Also, I love your game's tagline: "KILL FISH WITH YOUR STICK!" never have truer words been written *SMOOCH* Magnifico!)

Wow, great art and movement - reminds me of pluderland (Johnny Two Shoes). Great job!

Very fun experience, music is perfect!

Very polished and the art style is highly professional! Love the simple mechanics and this could totally be a pick up and play mobile game!

Great artstyle, which gives the a game a very polished feel!

Thank you @Eltea. We have been updated this game since the jam, haven't updated it on itch though. Will do tomorrow. :) The issues with death and the green fish eating the boat have been balanced.

Made it to 6500! For those wondering, you can press down and left click (or hit space I read on their page) to knock off the green fish.

I like this. The art is cool and the boater looks perfectly concerned about what is going on. I wish the green fish had a delay period before they started eating - even if you play very well, you are limited by the rate at which they appear. I also wish I had either died, or been able to swim, when falling off the boat, instead of disappearing and waiting for the boat to collapse.

Sounds were perfect for the environment. Great jam!

Really pretty art style. Having a game over state when you fall of the boat would greatly increase the polish level. To quit the game, which started in full-screen by default, I had to alt-f4. Having the escape key exit would be more user-friendly. I noticed two bugs while playing: you can't close the help menu and there's seams visible in the scrolling sea.

How do you kill the green fish?

This is great! I like the piranhas chomping on the bottom of your boat.

Great art style here!
