I liked the art style and I thought the idea was pretty fun. I think a few obstacles would really improve the game, it seems like the best way to win is just to try and fire a shot before your opponent shoots you. Maybe a time delay between shots to discourage shooting over moving? Maybe limited ammo? Anyway, it's a cool idea and very minimalist. 


Thanks for playing and for your feedback! In future I would love to experiment with obstacles and stage hazards (perhaps whirlpools?) and intend to tweak the gameplay in an effort to make the start of the duel more interesting.


Two regular gamepads here (digital).

I press (1) button, and...the game closes.

Really a Xbox gamepad is required? 

I assume the boat movement is kind of analog precission, right?


Indeed, the boats require analog control to operate! Unfortunately additional controller support wasn't attainable in the remaining time for the jam. Ignoring the buttons stated in the tutorial and experimenting with other buttons on your gamepad may bring you some success in playing, but alas only Xbox gamepads are officially supported.
