I won! Little easy. The fish sprites are nicely maniacal looking with their chattering jaws.

I was confused at first until I found the submarine. Really funny and great transitions with the water filling up and then draining. Good use of the theme too. Those fish are scary! Good job!

Nice little melody in the background :). I'm just gonna let that keep playing for a bit, I think. Amusing end, too!

I won! Game was a bit small though, but better small and good than big and bad. A well spent minute!

I like the music and is a new touch of storyline to the classic shooter arcade game. Cheers for the game! Good luck!

Kinda fun game, though the music gets a bit repetitive after a while. I like how the fish get bigger over time, but it took me a while to figure out how to attack the fish with space, being the stupid game player that I am (meaning you should always assume your players to be idiots with the controls). Fun idea with the sub though.

Nice water transition SFX.

Unexpected yet fun.

Would have loved some more SFX in game and greater fish variety :)

The art is cute and the fish sprites are adorably menacing. Was confused until I found the submarine, but after that the game became very easy.

5 stars for fun :D

Nice! I had a hard time figuring out how to play at the beginning. It was pretty fun (and funny!) once I figured it out. I think that there should be a way to restart the game, because currently it's more difficult than it should be to play again after dying.

Any game that tracks the amount of angered fish is okay in my book.

Charming graphics and a funny (also clever) premise. Took me a second to find the submarine but then it was go time. Only quibble I have is that you have to reload the page to try again, but other than that the game is great fun!

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
