Description

TANKMATES

Keep your dumb fellow fish alive by intercepting drones

wasd or arrow keys to move, space to tail spin

Build up speed and launch yourself out of the tank to take out drones

Hit the buttons on the wall to call in drones or new fish

Fish sparkle when they have a coin, hit them to release it

If you don't feed them for too long they turn green and will soon die

Too many dead fish clog up your tank so hit them out to keep it clean

    Cute game! I included it in my GM48: One Tool, Many Uses compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :) https://youtu.be/VY1l7qmII10

    Ahhh... so that's what gets on in fish tanks in this new age of drones!

    Once I started to get the hang of it I really enjoyed the idea. The hitbox on the drones was questionable and I didn't like that the camera lost focus on my fish at the bottom of the tank. I wish there was an end game goal like 10 healthy fish. I especially enjoyed the stupidity of the other fish who always liked pushing buttons for me. Good work, that was very unique.

    The hitboxes are small or something, it was very difficult to hit the drones sometimes, not registering your hits. Also I didn't get at first what the buttons were exactly, as stated by Joseph, the create button needed something more descriptive and a coin icon would be enough to understand it's what you have to pay to have them! Like Joseph, I'm fond of the way the coins stack! Not a bad idea, but lacks polish

    This could have been a lot better if the hitboxes were more forgiving. Even when I thought I hit the crates it often didn't knock them down. You could also put a little coin icon next to the one and the ten on the buttons, and make the picture of the drone look more like the drones with boxes (or something along those lines, at least), to make the mechanics of those buttons more intuitive.

    I like how the coins stack up as you hit the fish that sparkle. That is what ended up helping me realize that they were a currency.

    Fun concept, took me a while to understand how the two buttons worked.
    I wish there was a little more to do and a few sounds though

    I'm a little confused at the use of the theme, is it because your fish has many uses?

    The graphics are really cute, and the tailspin is well put together, you get a real feel of motion with it. But by gum am I rubbish at spinning a fish out of the water to hit a moving drone!
