Submarine v1.0 as of October 29, 2011
I woke up one day with a simple game idea: Reach the bottom.
That day at 10:00 am my time, I contacted Spooner in request with some graphics (I make him music, he makes me sprites. It's a fair world.)
About a half an hour later, he sends me the sprites.
A little under 7 hours later I finish making the game.

Download Windows Version
* Note the Windows version includes a batch file. Just ignore that. Really. Please. :)

Download Mac Version
* Note the only problem with the Mac version is an error in the text at the menu. It should read along the lines of "Last Run" and not "Best".

Left/Right -  Drift left and right respectively
Down       - Accelerate downward

Reach the bottom of the Ocean before the music ends

Your own speed - It only increases until halted
Starfish               - They will bounce you back up. The faster you are, the harder you bounce
Jellyfish              - They halt your speed immediately, slowing your progress down. Swim in packs


Plans to Extend:
I've already been given numerous amounts of feedback on the game. More than I expected.

1 - Increase Level Size immensely
2 - Change feature of the game from music-based to time-based
---- Players generally didn't understand the music went WITH the game
3 - Add power ups (momentary invincibility, more time)
4 - Navigation bar
---- To see how many fathoms you have traveled and are left
5 - New enemy
---- Already in progress.
6 - Another goal
---- Collect the sunken treasure at the very bottom if you can
7 - Water shader
---- Hack up a water warp effect on-screen

Uses the Gosu Game Logic Framework, Jiwon. (Still not public yet)

Glad to see that you managed to make the game as fast as I managed to make the sprites :)

I assume the version here is the same as the one I have already played, so I'll leave off trying it again until the next release. I'll look forward too it; a neat game that is very good considering the amount of time sunk (pun intended) into it!

Yes it's the same version. #2 will be out whenever I have more extra time to sit and think.

Huh, where's the mac version? Or at least the source code? Running one of those is much easier than using CrossOver :P

Mac version is available, but the text in the menu is wrong. I can upload it for you anyway. :)

Source code won't be available until I release Jiwon. It's pretty much of no use without it. :(

Ah, okay. Thanks!

What Jiwon?
Parent - - By Maverick Date 2011-10-30 06:01
I plan on releasing Jiwon when it is "usable" for C++ Gosu users. Basically, it's a Game Logic framework on top of Gosu designed to be used to make games efficiently and quicker. Handles level management, collisions, camera systems, etc.

Huh, interesting... Sounds good!

Finally got around to trying it; that was really fun! Just one very minor complaint: the icon is very small; I couldn't even see what is was until I looked at the image file... Awesome game, though! :D

Glad you liked it!

Nice game, I liked the music and sprites.
