Add some more obstacles and powerups and this could be a fun jumper mobile game. :)

However flicking doesn't work well with a mouse. :(

Developer

Thanks, that's what I thought, I wanted to have things like shrinking bubbles and birds and other stuff but ran out of time sadly. Yea I meant for it to be mobile but made it work on PC so more people would be able to play it.

Very fun game! I love how simple, yet fun it is! Very nicely done!

The gameplay works really well! perfect game for mobile devices.

Developer

Thanks for the support! I mainly targeted it at mobile but wanted to make it as easy to play as possible so made web and PC versions too.

Having the fish swim to the center of the bubbles when he hits them was a cool touch. Very smooth jumps and always swimming to the center of the bubbles made it easy to line up the jumps (you weren't stuck on the bottom of the bubble or the wrong side). 

Nice explosion animation. A slight bit of variation in the bubble art and a slight texture to the background would have been great. I felt like I was trying to go fast so it might have been cool if there was also a time element to it - like you were being chased and had to make the jumps quickly and then got a time highscore as well. 

Developer

Thanks for the suggestions! I would like to add some more variations to the bubbles in future as well as having some subtle animations to give them a bit more life. The timing element is a good idea too since it gives more of a sense of urgency to the game, might have a go at adding it some time next week.

visual feedback of dragging would improve the game feel. Pretty nice entry :)

Developer

Yea I thought about that at one point, just ran out of time and wanted to get all the basics in really.

I really like this game.  My entry has a similar base concept.

Plays great on Mobile! I can see this as an awesome time killer app. With some more polish this could definitely be one of those sleeper hits.

Developer

Thanks dude, there was definitely stuff I wanted to add but didn't have time! Would quite like to try and polish it for a full release though.

Nice classic gameplay. I can totally see this becoming the next big app given a little more polish and some extra art. Great job!

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! Art isn't really a strong point for me since I'm mainly a programmer, might try and improve it a bit in future though.
