WHOA. I dig the art style.

But my fave is the music. Really good tune!

AClockWorkLemon says ...

Not bad at all. if anything, i think the addition of sharks was unnecessary. Overall, relatively fun!

NiallM says ...

The music and art are fantastic, and go together really well. I drowned quite a lot though - I clearly wouldn't survive long if I was ever abandoned on a desert island...

excellent palette!

Jonathan Whiting says ...

Incredible atmosphere, both graphics (animation aside) and sound worked incredibly together. The difficulty felt all-wrong to me though. First play, dived, caught a few shells, surfaced, tried to move forwards, found the locked door, backtracked, found shark lurking in shallows died, died, died, died, died, quit. Second play, hunted for key first, found it, drowned before surfacing. I persisted for a while longer, but the (often unfair) brutality just stripped the fun out of it I'm afraid.

A pleasant game that reminds me of the original metroid in some ways. Pleasant music, though a bit repetitive.

Endurion says ...

Lovely game. For some reason it's ridiculously slow on my old desktop, but works fine on my laptop.
I didn't find the second key for the two part door on the third hop :(

Tozy says ...

Very funny. I missed some more monkeys =(

Tenoch says ...

This one got me hooked. The colors and music made the game very poetic and charming. Animation and big pixels too.

The movement is very well balanced, but those darn homing sharks are quite a pain.

That old-school CGA color scheme is the hotness. Great game!

ChainedLupine says ...

Slightly desaturated CGA color scheme? I'm all for that!
