    Fun short game exactly what I expect from a jam.

    I liked the idea that the game was reflecting what I was actually doing. I sometimes got the same letter as a hold and as a press which made it impossible to do both which bothered me.

    I failed to save the squid like 5 times then got it on the 6th with a score of 34 so Idk why it was easy the final time. I don't have anything really negative to say about the game great job.

    A nice game! I wish it lasted about twice as long with difficulty ramping up a little slower, but it's still fun! My high score was 34.

    Max I got was 28. The key ghosting issue is annoying tbh, so i'd recommend accomodating the gameplay to adapt to it

    y so hard? too hard game. Honestly, the only problem I had is that sometimes the letters looked as if they were different letters (like "M" and "N"). Loved it!

    This game was fun and made me smile. Thank you for turning me into a spider on my keyboard. You are damn right I saved Luna!

    I had to check out another fishy themed game! This is a neat game mechanic and reminds me a little bit of playing typer shark back in the day. When it first started, I was like this is so nice and easy and then it just got crazy! Definitely makes you want to go back and try again. I'm not sure if it was just my computer, but I couldn't make the play screen very large, even when hitting ctrl for fullscreen. Thanks for the unique game!

    It's a really good little game you got there. I make 28 at my first try and I keep improving myself to 31 for now. The gameplay is simple but effective But we have to make a constructive review. So maybe add a music to the main screen to make it alive.

    I thought this is the perfect kind of game you want out of a game jam! It's kind of loose on the theme, but that doesn't really matter to me. I love the physicality of it, how the controls pretty literally mirror what you're trying to do in game. Very clever.

    Aw this is such cute little game! Really felt like I was plugging holes as I was holding and double tapping the keys. Very nice art too. I could only get to 32 :) I'm bad at typing.
