    A Underwater Escape - Dmurph - 48 Hour Competition Entry

    This is my second game for Ludum Dare and it was so fun! I based my game off of my first game I've ever made :) heres my programs I used:

    -Adobe Photoshop

    Just use your arrow keys to move and escape from the creatures of the deep. Pick up a coin for extra points. Submit your score and get achievements!

    Totally fun and easy to play. Nice music. wish I could have done more than just move around - but, it's a neat package overall. Nicely done.

    Nice little avoider. Music is good and there are achievements :D
    The issue I noticed is that the collision boxes are not easy to guess.

    Seems a bit... 'static', but you made a 'complete package' game here, which is very admirable. Good job!

    Nice - I fully expected disco lights to kick in after the music started. Love the shark graphics!

    Solid and simple. A little rough on collision detection and feedback (I would add a timer after death to show the actual result with lots of blood effects, but maybe that's just me :p ) but with the music, the achievements and all, it's a complete experience. Good job.

    Dude needs to be more focused on where his body went than he does worrying about sharks and arrows. And yet there he is, the severed head smiling at me, taunting me, telling me to burn things.

    Escape... or avoid?

    Nice work with the scoreboard, provided additional motivation on top of the achievements and score-get.

    I felt some collisions with the harpoon were a little dodgy, but hey at least you get an achievement for getting gutted.

    It would be nice if the game (including the player) moved a little faster. This would help keep it from getting boring after awhile.
    Nice job on the achievements!
