I like this cute game. A map would be good.

Me! said...

Second! I was first before

Cute game, but the controls don't seem to work very well for me - keep getting stuck in corners.

I really like this game...but now I'm stuck! I think I should have first passed this one treasure chest and then opened it after that....but I didn't, and now it's blocking my way! I don't seem to be able to find another way out...only 6 empty slots in my inventory left..
boohoo!
but yay! for the game...like it a lot!

You need to find something first before you can go down in the water ...

Best truly "casual" LD game in a while! I hope they develop this further :D

Finished this in no time! Great game though.

This was a lot of fun! I really enjoyed this :)

Glitched, doesn't work. The bear fades in and out of view and there's no visual difference between the air and water. Totally unplayable for me. (Tried in Chrome and Firefox.)

Nice game but it ends a bit suddenly when you find the last object, doesn't it? lol Enjoyed playing it (worked just fine in Chrome). Thanks for sharing Bart. :)

I'm having trouble finding whatever upgrade comes after the trident. I assume it's something to help you swim against the strong current. Any advice? Thanks!

NVM got it. Didn't know the trident also gave you light (I guess).

Great game!

Kati said...

Cool game! I also got stuck after the beard-chest, but I turned back and realized the strong current is where I need to go, and yes, I dont even know what the last object is, the game ends so quickly, but otherwise, cool game!

I had to reload when he would not sink. Wandered the whole map before I found the left side switch. Good mini Banjo kazoo type game.

i think it wasn't the trident (the trident is a weapon for fighting crabs) but i collected this light orb thing (it was blue) that was able to give me light.
