Pretty fun - I think it has a lot of potential. I'd love to have a day system where more and more stuff is added to make things more chaotic. Not much wrong - it just works :)


I still have pH down, and algaecide queued up to use, that I didn't have time to implement. It should add more difficulty when I go back and add them in. I also wanted to add rain, as that effects pH as well. 

I thought about adding night mode, but currently, I have no lighting in the scene. And all my shaders are unlit.

Thanks for the feedback!


Everything is so smooth! I managed to get a great rhythm going and became pool cleaning employee of the year haha. The balance was a great touch with the ph levels and everything was so fluid, no pun intended, between the animations and swimming choreography. Awesome


Thanks for the high praise! I'm already looking forward to making it more difficult as game progresses. Right now, once you figure out  the job, there is no losing!


I liked the visuals, the colors are nicely chosen ! The gameplay is cool but it took me some time to understand how the gameover was triggered with the score. Well done, it's a great submission :)

Did you make the visuals ? If not, where are they from ?


I did not make the visuals. Everything except the characters are assets by Synty Studios. The characters are default characters from the "Everyday Motion Pack" on the Unity Asset Store.


I know I'm supposed to be keeping the pool clean, but there's also a certain joy to be had in bonking the chaps on the head with the net. Alas, as in real life, I think I'm to liberal with the PH-Down,
