You are a shark.
You heard about the fine selection of fresh humans at Shark Beach. Wishing to sate your vast appetite, you head to the location to try out their dinner selections for a few days. Supposedly they have a world renowned shark defense system, but reports say security hasn't been paying attention. Hopefully this will be an easy meal!
- Hold Left Click on a point in the water to swim towards that location.

Pretty fun game with a unique style! Love how levels progress by adding new obstacles+content rather than artificial difficulty increases like lower health. Also, you definitely made an effort to create everything yourself and it really adds to the charm.
P.S. The coveted Whirlwind Technique™ always works except for most of the time when it doesn't
It was a dream of mine to make a game's content all by myself. Thank you for your feedback!
The technique requires precise strikes across the waters, done right you are unstoppable!
