Stupid Cheatin Whale

I beat it on my second try, but the game has some serious issues. The way the captain jumps is messes up, way too much hang time, you cant throw spears while you are jumping and when the whale spits water it seems to last forever. Plus when he's trying to eat you and there is water falling and there are spike logs its almost impossible not to get hurt.

Well

My big problem was that the Whale hardly ever telegraphs it's attacks. The only thing that is made clear is when he's sucking in the water. But I died the second time, because the whale was off the screen, and he rammed me. How would I know to dodge something I couldn't see? It might have just been better if it had been a single framed shot with the planks changing. However I will give points for the style/presentation. The game looks amazing, and the voice acting and music really add to it.

ehhh...

Ok. The game's really hard and the AI is unfair that it's nearly impossible to beat it. Also, the Captain's movement is slow making the whale's attack difficult to dodge. Better luck next time. Overall, I give you 2 stars for the effort.

Hm..

it's okay I guess. The only thing that bothered me is that the jumping controls were very slippery if you know what I mean. I could hardly land on the ramp, always fell into the water.
