Great game!  Incredibly tight and polished, feels like a game you could buy on the app store right now.  The visuals are awesome - great color palette, the river effect is really cool, and I LOVE the font, especially that pixelated gradient!  Great job!

Nice game, very fun to play. It lacked some 80's music!

When my boat crashed and then a moment later my toober "POPPED"...i genuinely lol'd.  Great aesthetic, controls well, indicators at the top for hazards were perfect.   Fantastic.   This could also have been called "Florida Simulator".  XD     Also took me back to paying TOOOBIN' at the arcades (im old).

Wow love the visuals and style of the game! It feels very polished but the sounds could be improved a bit in my opinion. Maybe some cool retro music could fit perfectly :)

Really fun game! Love the controls, the fonts and the sound effects. Great idea and creative use of the art pack. Had a lot of fun trying to knock the gators out of the way

Cool game^^ i'm bad at it but it's cause i'm using a mousepad ahah.

You should make a mobile version 100%.

Very cool to play! Also it's pretty polished for a gamejam game.
You could like add jumps and attach a cool sound effect to it^^

Good stuff :)

Surprisingly, the web version works pretty well on Android. Sliding your finger across the screen or tapping where you want the boat to go just works. I've heard it doesn't load on iPhones unfortunately :( I'm not sure what the error is since I don't have an iPhone to test it. After switching to GLES2, it appears to work on iPhones too.

Really fun game! Simple and straightforward, and well-polished. I could see myself playing that game for hours on my phone with tilt controls, haha!
I enjoyed it a lot. Great work!

Nice work! The game was fun but a little bit basic.

really nice design with a lovely aesthetic and lots of polish. I like the idea of the mechanic a lot but feel like Timmy's physics could be tightened up somewhat to make it more predictable, as the game revolves around the playing being able to predict and control how he will move, even indirectly.
I like to be absolutely certain it was my own fault when i die in a game :) 

Nice arcady feel overall

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! I agree, that would make the game more enjoyable.

Nice esthetic, consistent throughout menus, fonts and color scheme. Good use of the art assets. The movement felt great, adds a layer of complexity when you need to take into account the momentum of the floater behind the boat.

Nice overall polish although a bit of music would have been nice.

Now I'm really wishing I added music :)

hahaha I think this quote sums a lot of people's game jam experiences

This was super polished! I loved all the little details, like how Timmy gets knocked off, and when the gators get hit by the boat. I like the effect on the river, too! Overall a pretty satisfying arcade-style game. Easily addictive. 

The indicators at the top are a nice touch, and show that you were thinking of the difficulty curve. 

Developer

Thank you! I was trying to get a wave-like effect with shaders but I thought this effect fit the game's theme pretty well.

One of those happy little discoveries! Yes, it felt very retro.

Pretty fun, but kinda hard at times. Some music would indeed by a great addition.

Very fun. Reminds me of the tubing game from Club Penguin haha

Developer

Yeah! I was definitely looking at it for ideas. Thanks for playing!

Great visuals and fun gameplay, could have done with some music or more sound SFX though. It cracked me up every time little Timmy got his world rocked and sent flying off screen, great job overall!

Developer(+1)

Yeah, I definitely should've added some music. I'm glad you enjoyed the game and got a kick out of the death "animation" as well. Thanks for the feedback!

Nice polished game.
