Relaxing, laid back take on competitive gaming

All in all it’s an enjoyable game. I’ve been playing it for roughly half a week and I really appreciate how zen the traveling
is, with just a bit of problem solving mixed it. It makes for a very nice balance. The developers should be proud of what
they’ve made here. I’d also like to say I have no id

Amazing but one thing

I LOVE this game I could play it for hours but theres one thing that bothers me... I hate it when the screen flashes really
bright. When I'm playing I guess I'm trying to relax and the bright flash just completely ruins the vibe of the game I'm a bit
sensitive to flashing so this is something that i

Game is great but..

I am having a lot of fun with this game it is very relaxing and calming. I would recommend it to anyone!

I only have 2 problems:

1. Sometimes people win the game multiple times a day very fast so they are obviously hacking or something.

2. It is sad you have to pay for co op, I wanted to play wi

Lovable art style

The art style for this game is iconic. Also, the game itself is a great way to detach and decompress a little bit.

Would love to see boat races between players, fishing contests, and maybe even some more obstacle course stuff.

Great game overall, awesome work devs!!

Great but needs a upgrade

This game is fun and calming but I wish you could race with friends for free or you watch a ad to race with your friend also I
think it would be nice to have a trading system and new items. Then with the items you could sell them at your shop or collect to
upgrade your boat give information buffs. B

Great game, here’s a suggestion

This game is very fun and relaxing. Here is one thing I think could add a lot to the game:

I think there should be something like “voyages” or something like that in which you complete longer quests. An example could
be finding one island and picking up “cargo” and then bringing it to an island fro

'Movement is difficult to control'

'The joystick is terribly small and unresponsive, and the option that isn’t the joystick is even worse. In a game that relies so
heavily on precise movement, it’s necessary that it’s easy to control. Please improve this'

Great Additions!

I like the new ships on Season 2! If you continue to add new content the way you did this season I’ll have this on my phone and
play it. Sounds like you listened to me and others suggestions on the game. Good job! I still don’t know how the number one
sailers get there so quick. On the bulls eye min

'This is a great game, slow paced and super fun while being relaxing. I’m having a hard time understanding how the new season
worked - when the changeover came, I kept the oysters and flares I’d collected. But none of the upgrades I made on my boat were
carried over! I got them because it said i

'Please Add a Sound Option'

'I have been playing this game for a couple days and I enjoy doing so. However, I do not like listening to the same song over and
over. I do enjoy the sound effects though. I would just like to suggest adding the ability to turn on and off music and and/or
sound effects.'

'Definitely casual'

'But you have to pay attention. I wish you could get rid of the little man at the bottom giving you suggestions. But I’m pumped
to finally get an island. You need to really use the flares to find them. Pizza slices 3 distance 1.'

'Great Concept'

'I got this game recently and I love the fact that you can play competitively by finding the island or you can just relax and do
some fishing. That said, there are a few thing that would be great if they were added.\n\n- More boats\n- More missions\n- An
easier way to get oysters\n- Varying rewards

'Love the Game but Confused about Flares'

(sort of like a pizza slice) works /how to use it properly because the direction of the island keeps changing. Thanks for making
this game :)))'

The start of a great game, very pretty and I enjoy just puting around in my boat.

I really wish the side missions and activities where more fleshed out and enjoyable!

A peaceful game that’s just a little too dull.

The concept of the game is great, but when the main gameplay of the game (that being races to find the island) only last 2-4
minutes AND don’t happen on frequent intervals, such as every 15-30 minutes, it makes for a game that’s easily forgettable.
The secondary gameplay of fishing and driving to in

Nice concept

It’s a cool idea, but it seems like progression isn’t really worth it. The odd flashes of color as I sail are really
distracting and unpleasant, and the tutorial felt like it was consistently getting in the way of just wandering around and chasing
birds with my boat. Maybe I didn’t play long enough

I’ll admit. This game is very fun. I got it the other day and I’ve tried hard and the best I’ve gotten is only 60th. I sort
of get the feel that it’s a pay to win game. It is impossible to earn oysters. You get a lot of flares from finding the island,

Good luck finding the island. Every time there is a new island it only takes 2 min for someone to find it when you spawn 15 miles
away. So far never been the first to find. Seems quite impossible.
