I just played it and I think it's your best game and it's much more fun. The game works much better in 2D. I did run into several bugs and graphical glitches. My biggest complaint is that I have to constantly tap boost to move which makes my thumb tired. It would be nice if by holding down right side it would make you move but not as fast as a tap which would be a boost. Nice work!!!👍

Thank you -- curious, what are you playing on ? Did you get past Typhoon ?

Listing the bugs would be very very helpful for us.

the controls are spot on. currency system extends replayability. all my cetacean favourites are intact from the first title. no iap. clean and original UI.

check, check, and check.

WOW! A sequel to Shark Eaters! Nice! Both codes taken. You can remove them from the first post. EDIT: tried to buy and it's iOS8+ only, pity Anyway, it looks great. I hope you have better success with this one than with Shark Eaters.

Is this related to that other game I saw that has a 3D dolphin that fights stuff?
If so its nice to see a sequel of a good idea, although I haven't played either.

Today is the first day of the rest of my life...but so is tomorrow...

I'm at grizzly point. One of the bugs, made it so I couldn't control my character. It was just floating along ragdoll physics style. If I run into more I will try to notate it better so we can pinpoint the problem.
