Cool little game. The music reminded me of the water levels in mario 64. Was there a better weapon than the pistol? I found the bosses lair and saw another caged fix I didn't find.

I like the excel map as well.

Hey, thanks for the great comments Cybs!

Yeah there are 4 friends to rescue overall, there's a machine gun and a bazooka that you can pick up by rescuing them.

Awww - that was cute :) Also liked the dialogs, even though it would have been even funnier if the friends had different texts. Thanks for brightening my evening :)

Thanks for the comments Fenmar! Different dialogues was definitely something I had planned, feel bad that I didn't manage it now.

Thanks for the positive comments, they're much appreciated :)

Very good game :)
The music is very fitting. It's a shame the last little polish is missing (dying, etc.)

Endurion, I couldn't agree more! The music was done in the last hour I had available to work and, again, I really regret not having the time for putting in the dying events (not only for the main character but also a more interesting way for the bad guys to die.)

Thanks for having a go! :)

It's time I took you to "school" :)

Fun game. I liked it.

Kylerhoades, I'm so glad someone mentioned that, it was one of the original puns I came up with before starting on the game so I'm really pleased it's not been wasted :D

Thanks for your kind comments!

I was indestructible fish with a giant sword! What's not to love?

The music was excellent, I'm guessing that's your main gig?

Nice work.

Thanks for the comments about the music Jack, I've certainly been writing music longer than writing games! (Available for music work if anyone needs it! *hint hint*)

Great music! It's a pity the game feels unfinished. I eventually got stuck inside a wall - after losing all of my health and blowing sea mines with my machine gun of course!

hexygen, the collision detection issues were unfortunate. At least I know I should learn a better technique for this now!
Glad you liked the music! :)

Lovely music - very fitting.

The graphics are also very nice, although they could do with a bit more texture.

I'm not really a fan of these sort of exploration games, but I'm sure it's a fine example of the genre.

Awesome game!
It was a little slow I think, maybe if there were like a dash/swim really fast thing?
Music was really cool too. Definitely kept me entertained for a while :)
