really cute and fun game :) No windows build ?

Since I was in a rush for the jam, I didn't really want to spend time on native exports. But now that it ended, I can provide a Windows build ofc.

If you can I'm glad because I love to play on the go without internet neither browser....

Simple but very addictive. Congratulations!
I'm currently blocked on screen 14.

Thanks for share!

Thanks for playing!

Level 14 introduces a new logic for breakable ice blocks.
If break the bottom one in a stacked group, it will make fall all others.

I did a screenshot, and hosted it on my website (in case you don't want to be spoiled) : Level 14 Solution

any chance you could release the cp3 file? I want to know how you did some of the mechanics!

Yeah, the whole game is based on the jump mechanic. That was tricky to develop but I'm very pleased to see it works, and that people enjoy it.

I asked the team and they agree to share our source code, so I'll share source files after the jam voting period ends via a devlog post.

Thank you for playing, btw! <3

Got stuck in a pit on level 6 with seemingly no way to get out. Cute game, though.

If you got stuck, simply press the R key to restart a level. It's all about the puzzle concept to get enough fishes and not get stuck, or die. Note that if you die, current level will restart automatically.

Good luck, and thank you very much for playing! It means a lot (-:

once you figure out how to eat the fish just perfect this becomes an adorable cute adventure

Haha yeah it's all about catching enough fishes, and sometimes at the right place or the right moment :-D

Thank you for playing, btw!
