That is so amazingly cute, it's so smooth it's easy to overlook the amount of things that are happening in there.

Also, I'm running it on an iMac dual booted to WinXP and it ran without any hitches.

Damn, Padman ... you did it again !!!

This is absolutely great, because:

- true oldschool feeling
- cute animations
- great scroller (thanks for the greet)
- whole production has a fantastic color-scheme
- great summer chippy music
- interactions (F-keys)

I really love the beach-mode! Great work, mate!

Classic totally retro ... Loved it.

Especially the simulated lighting/water overlay.That's very cool.

Is it sine plasma? cos i tried that and couldn't get it to look realistic.

Thanks yet again! :)

I was tempted to answer yes just to show off, but the honest person I am I have to admit that it's only some trickery involving moving textures and transparency. ;)

This is brilliant beyond words, from the art design to the animated effects. The music is more than icing on the cake - it's a highly important retro ingredient.

Hippos, dolphins, tortoises, and beach music what else you'd want? It strikes me with a ton of positive wibes!
