Hints of something good, but only hints.

It looks nice enough for the time given. But I can't give this a high rating. The actual gameplay is very simplistic and repetitive--reducing the whale's hit points to some fraction of what they are now might be a good idea.

Then again, this is my impression after only a little playthrough. I may change my mind.

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.

Could have been better.

The whole jumping scheme isn't good because you can't jump from plank to plank easy enough to dodge attacks and throwing spears seems useless it doesn't do that much at all i wish there was like a power up you could get to help out to make it some what easier to deal damage.

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.
