Fun wears off quickly...

I'd say give clearer instructions took me a couple of goes to work it out.
Yeah the game was ok. The fun wears off quickly and gets a bit boring. Graphics were ok though.

Little more than average.

Graphics: Decently smooth and appealing to look at. Not much in the way of variety though.

Style: Kinda simple, with a lack of complications. This is both a blessing and a curse. The simplicity makes it far too easy.

Sound: Good music, especially for the tiny filesize, but it gets repetitive. The other sounds were okay as well.

Violence: Cute and quirky crashes to get your attention, including a giant explosion. Limited variety, but still funny.

Interactivity: The controls were responsive, but the help guide was a little obtuse. It took me two tries before I realized you needed to click the whale to move the ship up.

Humor: I was smiling, that counts as humor, right?

Final thoughts: This is an impressively coded, extremely simple game that might be fun for a little while, but the challenge quickly wears off and leaves you with a lukewarm experience. Good, but only just.


It was ok, But theres no point if you know what i mean :P
Ps the highscores are broken.

It could be better...

First it was good, but then it became boring. Just same thing over and over again. Maybe add more objects to collect/dodge?

Good game, too repetitive.

Nice idea and graphics and all, but way too repetitive. It was just the same thing: wait till the aeroplane isn't overhead, then quickly click the whale untill you're over the iceburg, then repeat. Try making the game get gradually faster, or add new obstacles. 2.5/5
