I agree that the game looks great. Like the other guy, I hope a future update will include some endless play action!

I am totally on board with the idea of adding an endless mode. Hopefully, the devs are listening.

Edit: I just noticed that chapter 7, stated as coming soon, is titled "Endless Runner". This becomes as easy recommendation! The Captains have been really good lately - both Captain Antarctica and Captain Cat!

Basically you swim downward, chasing the boss. You need to gain momentum to deal damage to the boss at the end of the level. To gain momentum, you gather fish.

As you move down, there will be obstacles that slow you down, and some that can both slow you down and damage you (life in hearts). The levels are randomized each run.

Missions are Tiny-Wings-like and have certain uniqueness and their own quirkiness that you'd still want to complete them all. Once you reach the level, some bosses dont die right away, but they get damaged, depending on how much speed you have when you reach the end of the level. That means if you didnt do too great but completed a level, you need to redo the mission to deal more damage and defeat the boss.

There are pickups along the way that affect the game, and some are passive upgrades. Oh and pickups can be upgraded too.

IAP is only for the impatient, but the final level of an upgrade will need a lot of grinding to acquire. On the bright side, it isnt necessary to max the upgrades to be good at the game!

This game is very enjoyable for me. Game is awesome with both tilt and touch controls, but I just increased the tilt sensitivity a little bit and i think it works much easier for me with Tilt (i know it's rare for me to prefer tilt over touch).

If you like fun pick-up-and-play games with cute graphics and great replayability, this is an easy choice to pickup.

Even though games similar to this are around (Yello and Off the Leash) for me, it's still an easy recommendation.

Looking forward to it! I actually enjoyed the concept of "picking up speed tohit the boss at the end as hard as you can" which is so much better than get to the finish line objectives.
