Harvest fish daily to keep the baby penguins fed. Be careful, the fish won't go without a fight!

Move toward a fish while adjacent to it to attack it. Mola Molas (the large fish) take two hits to capture, while everything else only needs one. Carefully plan your route in this turn-based dungeon crawler to out-maneuver the fish- how many fish can you harvest?

No background music because of the deadline and also because I still don't know how to make background music. 😔

The art and movement of the penguins and seafood was so cute, so good!

The fact that new enemies were added as you progressed and the number of enemies increased as you progressed was very similar to the thrill of going down a hierarchy in a roguelike and facing an unknown enemy and trying to win a game that you don't know if you can win or not.

I thought it was amazing that you could express this so well without the concept of level-up elements, equipment, etc.!

Thanks for a fun piece!
