*UPDATE* We added NG medals!

Swim through the seas and perform top-notch acrobatics in this action-skill game vaguely inspired by the classic Circus Charlie.

In "Star Splash" you must do all sorts of well timed, precise moves to collect stars. As the levels become harder you must combine many moves and anticipate what's coming next.

- 21 levels
- 3 zones (easy, medium, advanced) each taking place in a different scenery
- 8 different moves (some of them are combinations)

- Use the ARROW KEYS to swim around in the water. When you go up to the surface you will automatically jump.
- Once in the air, you can do many moves like the: double-jump (press "UP"), dash (press "RIGHT"), dive (press "DOWN") and others that you will learn on the way.
- Use your sonar wave by pressing "SPACE BAR" to catch the special stars.
- Press the "Q" key to toggle quality

Nice game. Medals seem to be not working anymore. Using ng player.
Also game doesnt save so better beat it in one sitting. I also had a bug where I had to click the screen at the start of the level to be able to move.

Very fun moves. It would be cool to have an endless mode. The medals worked on chrome but not on firefox.

Love the game, simple concept but tough to master. I completed the game but did not get the final medal - any ideas?

The game is pretty good but it has some tedious flaws. First the controls. For the most part they work just fine, but some of them could have been given a different key command. The dash move for example: could have been given a letter key command instead of the right arrow key while in the air. The reason why I say this because often times I have tried to control my momentum while in the air, especially if it would have helped to move forward just a little, only to make the dolphin dash forward making me miss stars. This probably wouldn't be as big of an issue if the autoscrolling wasn't so fast. That's the next problem. The autoscrolling actually moves faster than the dolphin does, which results in me wanting to just move forward while in the air without dashing since that often leads you to missing stars if there isn't a straight line of them for the dash move. The sonar move is also a problem. Not so much for the fact of it not working, but some of the areas where you must use it are very inconvenient. Especially after taking a dive to quickly get stars from below you, only to miss sonar stars if you don't have split reaction timing. I feel like the only way you can beat this game is to remember the star patterns through constant trial and error. I did manage to beat it, but after many attempts, especially around level 17 and up. The dolphin animations are smooth, the backgrounds have some pleasant artwork and the music is decent. Overall the game is good, but it had a lot of potential to be a lot better.

My only complaint is with the dead leaf move. I have never once got it to work.
