You are the worst diver known to mankind; you forgot your scuba diving kit and your harpoon but at least people love to randomly throw coins in the middle of the ocean.

Mini Diver is a fun, minimalistic, arcade game. Avoid incoming enemies while catching oxygen and coins to last longer and to buy more upgrades.

I wouldn't call it fun, but I would call it simple. It took a bit to understand what you meant by lose money for the one medal. I assume that it meant to let it fail off the screen, which I was right.

It needed more. After you make all the upgrades and get the medals in 2-3 minutes all interest in this game goes away. Its extremely easy and presents little to no challenge.

Perhaps for a young child this would be fun.

Fun and simple. :)

Thanks :D

I like this game. It's relaxing in a way because it is easy. The art is supposed to be the way it is so I won't complain about that. Although like other games like this it got boring and repitive after a while. I did enjoy it though

Koverted responds:

Thanks for the review. I plan on making a sequel since I've gotten a lot better at making games.

I agree with others when they say it is a little too simple. I probably could have made this type of game with Stencyl within less than a week and I've yet to actually make one of my own. This game could have been improved with character art rather than just boxes of color. Still, this is one of your first submitted games so I'll let you slide.

Also, to other players wondering how to get the Aspiring Banker medal, let the yellow blocks fall off the screen. (Also, if the last medal is suppose to be worth 50 points and it's worth zero, I would suggest contacting Tom yourself since the players will most likely direct their disappoint towards you and your game, which will make for a lower overall rating).

Koverted responds:

This game, however, wasn't made with Stencyl it was coded from scratch but it was made in around 2 days. Why is art so important for a quick arcade games like this? If simplicity is a problem just because of the art then I don't really think that's fair criticism but if it was because of the gameplay then fair enough. "Mini Diver is a fun, minimalistic, arcade game."

Very simple game. Maybe too simple.
