Awesome! Well polished game. The visuals are really nice. Needs some tweaking for the bubble spawning. Sometimes there would be a cluster of bubbles at the only opening.

Haha, it's hard to give less than 4 stars. I really like how a *simple* idea can grow into something really awesome when nicely implemented : the story, graphics, music & mechanics really blend well. <3

Very nice! Fun and entertaining and pretty funny. I actually kept replaying it until I beat it because I wanted to see what happened. Great job!

Omagawd ! Thanks a lot.

We don't imagine that our game will made such reactions.

We are more motivated than ever to make a enhanced release.
We have a lots of cool additions/enhancements in our brains, and because of your reactions now we can't resist to share them.

We will work on a new release in the next days !

Meanwhile, a Postmortem will be published shortly (we are on rereading, self censorship etc...)

Again : thank you very much ! T_T

NIce game. The bubble doesn't look bad so I had to took one to realize that I shouldn't... Good job though :)

Really good fun. I own fish so can relate to the food -> hyperactivity -> poo cycle :)

Wow, amazing graphics for the time given. I would have made the game a lot more fun with some score, so that you could compare with previous attempts.
Overall good entry. Give yourself a pat on the back.

Very fun and well polished. At first I didn't read this page and went straight to the game and was a little confused what to do except running away, until I decided to press space and I understood; you might want to add the instructions in-game.

Fun game. Seemed to be lacking a goal though, something like a high score or a target, could be I just never got that far though.

Very polished entry with good humour and sound. Some of the columns seemed a little unforgiving - you've really got to stay in the middle - but it was fun and I played until I beat it. ;)
