  1. Plays well but the game is still too tall to fit in my browser window without scrolling down to see the bottom of the track. The download version displays perfectly though.

  2. I gotta say, this has come a long way from the first test, and I like it. One thing I noticed was the sprite change when Maiko bumped into the side. I know that seems minor, but it’s little things like that that make games like these really enjoyable for me. I can’t wait to see what’s in the next update for this.

    1. Many thanks. I had it set to go back to a position where her body is vertical, since you are usually more vertical when moving slow or idle to make it seem more realistic but I can change it. maybe only do vertical if she is completely still.

  3. Turning feels a bit too responsive. Make it drag a little, especially since there isn’t a way to turn with precision when it comes to keys.
    I was able to beat the opponent fine with standard settings.
    The opponent goes from 0-100 immediately though. Perhaps the same principle for the turning could be used, make it so there’s an ‘acceleration’ feeling to starting to move.
    Maybe letting her block you would be fine, if the AI was programmed to make a mistake or two, but your idea of making it look like you’re swimming under them is great too.

    1. Thanks for the feedback. I reduced the turn speed a a bit and went with the character being fully submerged instead of blocking. It’s a bit easier for me than making a the opponent make random mistakes because it is not really Ai it just a animation.

  4. Can’t wait for the completion of this game. Played most of the other games but this one is the best in my opinion. Will there be an exclusive extras for patreons or we can also experience everything?

    1. What do you like about this one compared to the others? Thanks this game will have a convenient gallery for patreons. But everything can be seen while playing the game also.

  5. Much better then your first test of this game. The controls are tight, not to hard to turn but you can still mess up if your not careful. I was able to beat the opponent with high and low settings/water effects. And with splash turned on/off. I did notice that if your holding the UP key, you start a half second before the opponent. Is the intentional or just a bug? Curious, will there be a time attack kinda mode to unlock a gallery mode or some special images/animations? Keep up the great work and can’t wait till its ready.

    1. Thanks, yeah it is intentional you can start a little before the opponent due to the acceleration. There are some images not used that I can have for bonus unlock stuff.

  6. One complaint here:
    If I choose Maiko, Ari has advantage ’cause she is taller.
    If I choose Ari, Maiko is positioned a little forward.
