This game is loosely based on a very old arcade game called Shark Jaws. Released by Atari under the name of Horror Games, originally released in 1975. I added stuff to it, thus the +
You are a diver that is trying to catch fish and avoid everything else.
There is one life. If you die, you start over.
After you catch 10 fish, a new level appears.
Avoid the shark.
Avoid the walls, they tear up your wet suit.
Keep an eye on your oxygen, if it runs out, you die.
To replenish your oxygen, go to the top, but avoid all walls.
There will be a warning when you get low on oxygen.
Avoid the Coral tree.
Avoid the mad puffer fish.
At a later stage a killer sub will show up, avoid it.
If you find bugs, please post here. I did this pretty quick so there should be some.
I realize the shark is not pixel perfect on collisions. Your advantage
If you die, the fish will be easier to catch (for a while), it's random.
Happy New Year!!!
