    Very interesting mechanic! I wish it was more clear though because if you don't do as expected, it is confusing to get that the rubber duckies actually make you heavy. (those collectibles seemed to be light for me since they are rubber duckies so it took me a while to figure out the game had a specific physic and that rubber duckies were actually heavy)

      Thanks for the feedback! I got a lot of people saying the rubber duckies didn't make sense and I completely agree.

      I really couldn't think of anything that would make you heavier when holding it, but would float to the surface after being released :(

    Very nice game, BUT WHY do the rubber ducks make you sink ???? :D

    I loved the game! Very fun! Could use some music. And although I like the sprites, the animations and water tiles could be improved. But the fun surpasses the issues! Good job!

    The core mechanic was great! And the tutorial at the beginning of the game explains really well how it works, since it's pretty confusing.

    Level design was pretty good even though you could've made a lot of cooler stuf with a mechanic like this.

    Art and sounds were ok, but you could've definitely done better.

    And the game itself was a ton of fun, too bad it was really unpolished, but I see a lot of potential in it.

    I wish this was getting a little bit more attention. The graphics aren't great and sound is a bit repetitive BUT... the gameplay is super super fun! It made good use of the theme and the mechanics are very fun to control. Good job!

    If I were this diver in real life, I could have chosen to die in the first level. The daredevil plunges are way too scary, at least for me.

    The diving and rising mechanic is very interesting. Not much is contained in the game, but this mechanic makes it stand out. Good job!

    The visuals and audio aren't amazing, but the central mechanic is pretty interesting and it's really fun launching out of the water at high speeds. I like how there's a tutorial to give you a good understanding before the more complex levels.

    Interesting mechanic with the weight and diving thing. It looks promising.

    The level design and art was kinda weak, but it's to be expected in such a short time frame.

    This is one of the more unique mechanics that I've seen in this jam. Well done.

    Some dodgy physics and collisions, but the main mechanic is interesting.

      Thanks for the feedback! Were the any particular aspects that you remember having dodgier physics/collisions? I would like to go back and fix/tweak things eventually

    I really enjoyed this game! It's simple but game mechanics are intriguing. I had a good time just figuring out how things work. I like the art style too. Good job!
