i seem to be too stupid to catch a single fish, and the poor eskimo will have to stay in the desert forever... :~( are there some cheats? :D
in related news, this prod is really übercute!

Slightly OT comment:

Nowadays the term 'Eskimo' is considered to be a racial slur. Maybe not quite as volatile as Chink or Nigger, but a tad more harsh than Limey or Frog.

The word 'Eskimo' is a distortion of an Ojibwa term meaning 'raw flesh eaters' and is considered insulting.

'Inuit' is now the accepted term, which is what they've been calling themselves for hundreds, if not thousands, of years.
Very cool. Also very almost impossible. =)

What has this to do with scene?

Mac: It was done by Memon. You might remember him from such demos as Gerbera and FFWD.

Pretty cool indeed. A sweet small game. Nice graphics.

But damnit, it's way too hard =]

Moppi does it again.
Maybe its should be a bit easier?

Lovely, but so increadibly HARD!!! anyone know of any cheats :P
rulez added on the 2001-12-23 01:25:05 by Nezbie Nezbie
I made it to stage 2-2 with 3675 points, then I gave up... =)

Oh well, maybe sometime when I have less to do I'll get farther.

Must get the little guy home!
cute but boring

this is nice. and it really isn't THAT hard.

macaw: we have eskimo ice cream in finland too.
rulez added on the 2001-12-23 09:53:53 by raymon raymon
IMHO badly balanced gameplay, boring background sounds, much too big and slow for what it actually does/shows.

More or less a trial of patience...
rulez added on the 2001-12-23 10:30:23 by tomaes tomaes
Shit, it should be a thumbs down. Dammit. =)
added on the 2001-12-23 10:31:32 by tomaes tomaes
What the fuck is your problem, Tomaes? It was just released AS A CHRISTMAS GIFT. Damn, I'm tired of this.
added on the 2001-12-23 13:13:22 by sagacity sagacity
Everything what a scener produces is a 'gift' to the rest of the scene.
So, I'm not allowed to criticize because it's christmas time? Oh c'mon...
And it was not a flame at all, because I explained WHY it's not good in my eyes.
added on the 2001-12-23 14:14:40 by tomaes tomaes
Lovely game. And it really isn't too hard. It just takes some time to master like any other good game. It only needs better sounds to be a classic among other *free* games. Thanks.

Strangely addictive game. I love it!
rulez added on the 2001-12-30 00:24:25 by brutal brutal
very cool idea ;)

gave up after 18 minutes and about 1000 points

tomaes, it's no sugarcubehunter, that's for sure!
ile, don't compare rotten apples (sgh) with big melones (eft) please. :)

NOo! I can't beat level 4-2 (the last one) !!! I guess there won't be any seafood pizza at the party then :P

I didnt imagine this would end up here :) Anyway there's way to cheat, by clicking the lower left corner in the Continue/quit screen (just press esc while playing).

About the gameplay balance. The whole game was done in four weeks (bascilly coded in weekends, rest of the time was spent modelling and finetuning) and I gave it as a present to most of my friends, so no beta testers. If I want I can complete any level in five minutes (usually I get pissed of after 20 fishes though).

And because of the time I could spend on it (school deadlines & cha-cha-chah) I didnt have time to make good plot increase the playability.

The sounds are just some random stuff I got from the web and the used soundforge to shift the pitch. I'm no musician :)

Final spoil: And unfortunately there's no final excitement (see previous paragraph for the reason :).

Maybe I'll release the source someday, if someone has too much spare time to spend making it better...

Ah... one more. The Eskimo term (and actually the initial indea for the face of the character) is picked from a finnish refrigerator-box (those transparent boxes you can put berries in and the nfreeze them) maker. Also someone mentioned the ice-cream. So at least here in finland it does not have the negative tone. I'm sorry if someone upset about the name.

Memon: excellent work. I found the game to be quite entertaining and visually beautiful.

In my humble opinion, it's not boring and it's not difficult (took me like 3 minutes to figure out how to fish).

So, a great game with cute graphics, ok sounds and addictive gameplay... definitely worth the download.

beautiful water and character design
but : unplayable
i never take a fish in 15 minutes, i don't understand how to capture one, it's too hard
i never get any fishes either :(
but since it's moppi quality, up goes the thumb.
rulez added on the 2003-11-27 00:39:39 by Gargaj Gargaj

i get 0 playing during 2 minutes... but i think 'one day' i will be able to catch one.

i like water's effect
rulez added on the 2003-12-01 16:51:03 by vagus vagus
This was a fairly crap game, because i suck at it :) Well, i caught some fish, but it was very rare. But presentation was great.
added on the 2003-12-01 17:13:46 by psonice psonice
Unerving. Unable to catch a fish in 3 mn. And often the "bouchon" will get caught in the "island" and you can't take it off and it's not logical at all. Sorry, but I wouln't have liked to receive such a present.

Looks lovely, but I only managed to catch 6 fish in 15 minutes and gave up. I'd have loved to have some music in the background :)
