I feel so sorry for those dolphins in the aquarium, they belong to the ocean, nowhere else

I agree. Tell that to Sea World! Should close it down!
But seriously, I doubt if any animals were harmed or mistreated in the making of this game!

I'm gonna be liking this! However, no whale would eat another fish or animal tail first like in the video. Just sayin'. No biggie I guess. Most people won't notice.
Wish I could play this now!!

I Am Dolphin Game Icon

This will be the game icon for

I Am
Dolphin







Screenshot from Bandit (bottlenose dolphin) vs. Mako Shark. The Mako is about to dart forward and bite - you have a split second here to either turn inwards and bite first, dart away, or carefully move so the Mako does not have enough hydrodynamic drag to turn into you.

Battle Gameplay

Short battle, Bandit (Bottlenose Dolphin) VS Rainbow Runner. The Rainbow runner here has a very low intelligence so its a fairly easy kill for a practiced finger-swipe - but still evades skillfully. Most fish-battles have multiple fish, are far more intelligent (coordinate strategically), and bite back. This is a good video of physics/dynamics of the dolphin. All motion and animation is generated from physics. Zero canned animations. It has virtual muscles, bones, and we even modeled the hydrodynamics of the water. In short, its visceral. You "feel" the physics intensely. Boosting is controlled by tapping on the left of the screen. Movement is swipe.
