Really lovely! I included it in a compilation video series of all of the Fishing Jam 2 games, if you'd like to take a look! :)

I love the concept, descending in a deep alien ocean? Thrilling! What will hide at the bottom? I really like the game, it's simple yet funny to play, keep going!

thank you for playing! i realized my instructions were transposed and it is correct that Z is for shooting bubbles 😅 so sorry, thanks for figuring it out!

I had a lot of difficulties at first with the controls ( seem like my keyboard is not the same language as yours cause z was for bubbles and x was for the flares) But once I overcame this, the game was pretty enjoyable, pretty impressive for a pico 8 game. Really loved it, hope you can continue developing it :)

oh I see how what i said could be confusing, sorry. I meant all the collision detection is highly inaccurate and unreliable. it is technically "on" though. anyway thank you for giving it a play!

Ever since I heard that Europa had an ocean under the ice I've thought about a game like this, and you have made it! It's really cool and feels authentically retro. I couldn't figure out how to get the bubbles to hit the enemies? In your comment you said the collisions are turned off, do you mean for the bubbles?

@studiotectorum

Thank you! I appreciate it.

All the collision is off :/ for now. The bubbles work best if you shoot a little low and hold left/right. They need to work better.

Did you hear the Pico-8 startup noise when the game loaded up? I just checked and audio was fine for me \_(ツ)_/¯
