The One That Got Away

We've just released our new Flash game The One That Got Away.

Play it at

All your fishy friends have been captured by Big Red and his evil Octos. It's up to you to rescue them from the sea chests in this fast paced, quick thinking arcade game.

Scores Done!

The problem with the High Scores is now sorted out and I've even managed to get some music into the game.

The music is soft and "not game like" at all but it then ramps up a lot during the bonus rounds. I like the difference between the two.

Just some little finishing touches to sort out. I can then build it and upload for all to play. Should be ready for this weekend :)

Online High Scores

Just doing the finishing touches on the online high scores for The One That Got Away.

A few minor bugs to iron out like it sending the scores to the server ok but not displaying them!
Should be something simple to fix though as it uses the same online score code as Donuts in Danger, which works fine.

20 Levels - Done!

All 20 levels are now in - hurray!

I've just had a few plays and I've failed to complete my own game! Keep getting stuck at Level 19.

All that's left to do now is to throw in a nice bit of music, do the How to Play and Game Over screens and then sort out the online High Scores - simple!
Should have it ready to upload at some point next week.

I'm pleased with my productivity on this small project. Although the game is nothing special, if I release it next week then it will have taken just less than a month to complete :)

Getting There

Well I've now completed 13 levels and I've changed how the game works ever so slightly.

Now when you collect all the Bonus Bubbles (to spell BONUS) aswell as massive points you now get an extra life. This seems to work out well for letting the player get further into the game.

The later levels are now becoming quite difficult so the extra lives are a nice addition :)

Finally! Screenshots!

The One That Got Away
A couple of screenies to show you the new game "The One That Got Away".

I've completed 9 levels so far. I'm not sure how many the final game will have yet, but I'm trying to do at least one every night.

The One That Got Away
In the screenshot you're the yellow fish.
You have to free your fishy friends from the chests to get to the next level. The 2 pink Octopus patrolling the top and bottom of the play area will shoot when they are lined up with you.
The red Octopus is Big Red. He appears if you take too long on a level and chases you all over the screen.

The game starts easy enough with just one Octopus. As it progresses though there will be up to 4 Octopus trying to take you out, plus the threat of Big Red!

Anyway, it's nothing mind blowing or new or radical but hopefully a small fun, free web game that you'll enjoy.
