bought this for my little girlie... graphics/animations are really adorable!

casual one-touch gameplay, comparable with whale trail, etc.

very well worth a buck... and yeah, it's a swimmer!

EDIT: 74.6mb, no IAPs

Thank you Janni!
Glad to hear you and your kid enjoy the game.
The feedback we received has been very positive so far, but unfortunately it didn't get a lot of press coverage yet. Especially in the US our visibility seems to be close to zero.

Gameplay wise, our goal was to give the player a happy feeling and make him smile but also challenge him more and more while he progresses through the objectives. So the game should offer an easy entrance difficulty for casual players, but while you are progressing you get a better understanding for the the game mechanics and you will will hopefully learn to play with skill in order to beat the later objectives. If players can feel that, we reached our set goal

Also, I would just like to comment on something... we started the game while working for Crytek, but left the company months ago to go indie and work on the game fulltime and complete it.
