Got it, like it. Will post more tomorrow.

Gameplay: hmmm, endless runner type game with small mini games and treasure unlocks.

Graphics: quality animations, nice art style.

Controls: responsive

Humor: it's here (that's what she said...haha)

Concerns: once I make it way far, slight reluctance to start over at Day1.
But i guess that applies to almost every endless runner.

This is definately a quality app and not one of those "Game Salad" happy meal games.

Yeah alot. So far i got a cheeseburger, fries, and a orange.

Being castaway and lost at sea, those are better than shiny gold trinkets hehe.

There are still slot of items locked for future play.

Be sure to read through the instruction tips. Alot of good tricks in there.

Very cool game and it works well on the iPad. Art style, especially the character is well done and the gameplay is very fluid. The waves look and feel very real and the controls are simple.

I made it to day 10 my first try, so I will get a better idea of what this is like the more I play. Looks like high scores are through facebook? I have facebook but don't usually use it for scores.

Game Impressions

Ambitious game with mixed degrees of success. Concept is interesting but the gameplay feels unfocused with too many aspects jammed in without sufficient refinement allotted to any particular one.

Frame rate is less than ideal.

Sound effects cut out for no apparent reason within my first 10 min game session suggesting bugginess.

The on-screen controls should be user-re-definable, as the default position definitely won't suit everyone.

Overall, interesting but rough around the edges. Strikes me as a game that definitely could have benefitted from more development/testing, and appears to have been pushed out the door prematurely. Biggest concern is general lack of focus to the gameplay.
