Nice and simple. Really good controls. Some obstacles/hazards would have been nice addition.

That was a lot of fun to play! Definitely some sound would go a long way, but the gameplay was really good. Great job!

Developer

Thanks :-)

I now appreciate how important sound/music is in games. Lesson learned.

Totally shredding the DNA gnar gnar, brah.

HA! Nothing goes hand in hand like Surfing and science. Fun game. Was it missing music and sound or was that a bug?

Developer

Lack of time, and not appreciating how important it would have been to make time for it!

Totally radical dude.

Cool Idea~ it was challenging but still fun.  You can add more levels of surfing on various designs!  Keep it up~ Please play Puma Cat if you have time.

Developer

Thanks :-) 

No windows PC to play puma cat on :-( but it looks fun!

Loved the difficulty and concept a lot. I kept going backwards! (My fault) The only thing it really needs is some sound. Awesome job!

Fun concept! I wish the surfboard were a bit easier to control, but I guess that's part of the challenge/fun. It'd be nice to have a global leaderboard for scores!

Thanks! Yeah we struggled with the surfing difficulty for a while, and we wish we'd done global leader boards. 

btkal implemented slowly decreasing magnetism to the course and i think it really makes the game work, but if we had more time we would love to tightened up the controls more.

The concept is so funny, haha, good job.

Pretty fun, some sounds would've been great. I tried to go on the red line while playing solo, but that's not possible XD

thanks retrobanana! We really appreciate you taking the time to play our game!

Developer

Thanks for playing & your comments!

We added rubber banding to the center of the track to make it easier, which gets weaker on each level. You can probably make it onto the other track later on, if only we had time to reward that somehow :-)

I made it almost to 1200 :)
