Looked great but...

game was sub par. Spear does fuck all and it can"t even be thrown while in the air. Controls were slow and didn't stick. No momentary invulnerability after being hit. And there was no option to skip the opening sequence.

Alas, I would have put up with all of it if there were more Ahab quotes, everything that guy says is drenched in fucking epic sauce then deep fried in unicorn blood. I fucking love that novel.

In conclusion,
I award 5 points for being about Moby Dick.

I'm sorry, this is pathetic.

A long prologue, Ahab's spear to absolutely nothing, and he can get infinite-juggle-killed by Moby Dick. It even feels like I'm moving on ice. This isn't your best game man, try again.

Try to make it just a little more seamless in terms of taking damage and the feeling of control on Ahab. Then maybe this thing could have lived up to what it could have been.

Would maybe be funny, if...

... it wans't Z & X. Not all keyboards are English - so i have Y & X. Unplayable.
And: You can't skip the long prologue. Sorry friend, next time maybe.


this game is great but it needs an option to skip the first thing, for the rest of it it was prety straight forward.

ARzat critizism

I know your quite new to making games tyler but thr interface needed a bit more work :P Like something to even identify more with the health bars would of been good.
