thank you for your thoughts, in the post jam version i'll definitely fix up some of the major problems, like the lazy graphics, tiny text and weird controls, and also thank you for playing and rating the game


ok so, i lost the game files like a scrub when trying to reinstall windows so i'll go kill myself brb


I played this yesterday, but forgot to leave a comment! So here's your comment! Fun gameplay, but challenging. I like the weird controls, it makes it unique, and really gives a lot of flavor to the game. Congrats on this, it's a lot of fun :)


thank you so much for your review, your entry was also interesting and unique, and over all one of the best games submitted to the jam in my opinion


Interesting concept but why up button to move?? ^^'


cause the way i imagine the game is that the fish doesn't know how to use his legs, and as such the controls are all weird, adding an extra layer of challenge


Nice concept, I think a few more levels with more variations would have made it really worth while. And also was moving forward with the up arrow a curse in itself? xD


how i imagined it is that the fish doesn't know how to use his legs, so you need to press the up arrow to move, but thank you for the feedback


+ Interesting controls makes for a different mechanic!
+ Sounds and music

- While I liked the use of assets, some more variation would have been nice


thank you for the criticism, in the post-jam version (if i ever make one) i'll try adding more diversity to the tileset


Good job JekPasanBurner I enjoyed it!

Very cool idea, and a good amount of challenge. Took me a while to get the hang of it, and it was really fun doing so. Nice job!


thank you so much! your game was also a fun and interesting experience
