Your not supposed to win.....aw who gives a F@^$ hahahaha priceless!
Seriously this was pretty fun. I don't have a clue how to beat this with more than half your health left. Well I mean I could do it now but my computers slow so it took ten minutes to kill this thing.

Very Cool

I'm a fan of short and sweet single boss fight games like this. There could have been more variety in the whale's attacks, especially making them tougher to avoid as the fight progresses. Also, needs more Queequeg.
Moby Dick himself could have had a death animation too, instead of just fading to the victory screen. But the screen itself was well worth the couple minutes effort to complete the game, it made me chuckle a bit out loud.
Overall a stellar show for a 72 hour game.

i think most people realize this was made in 72 hours :p

A Craptastic game!

Well, NOT So bad, aww man, no really it's bad down there are a lot of suggestions that maybe you have been read at this point, The Art is good, but the gameplay is horrible, and when I say horrible, I say Craptastic.

For instance, you don't know never what the damn whale is going to do, and launching spears lags a lot, the speed of moby is nice, howrever, the good ol' captians REALLY needs another leg, if you wanted do do a hard game, I suggest other ways, but NO THE CONTROLS, Well, I could continue, but I only will repeat everything what was said, Please try to work in this, I also want to change the "Cr" of craptastic for a "F".

A good beginning

I liked it, but I have some suggestions that I feel could make it much more enjoyable.

-Being able to throw spears while jumping
-Moby should not be invulnerable while attacking
-Spiked platforms maybe a bit too common, as they often make taking damage unavoidable when combined with another attack

That said, I don't think it is too tough. The battle is supposed to be the ultimate moment of Ahab's life, I think you are correct to err on the side of difficulty!
