Really enjoyed it — the controls reminded me of Mega Man, in the sense that they were very precise, and felt like something I had to master if I wanted to make it very far. The game is gorgeous and I enjoyed exploring a lot. The only thing that really stood out were the "stars" i was collecting. They just felt out of place in the oceanic world. If they were my little baby octopi, I would get some story out of it. Or even if they were just starfish, they would suit the world more. Regardless, congrats!

@procrastinator Thank you, I had to try many combinations of colors to create this palette, and I'm still trying :)

@brushfe Thanks for the honorable comparison, on the story I had in mind, the stars have a vital role to justify this octopus have ability to leave the aquatic environment, the little octopus is before many challenges and only the player can decide their fate :S

@gillenew Yep a nice harmonious colour palette is hard to achieve and you did well!

I didn't even realise you had a playable version! I must've got mixed up with some other game that only showed screens.. plus the lack of sleep probably affected my eyesight ;p Nice little game! Love the anims on the octopus.. nice and smooth!

BTW I found this the other day... Colour Palette Creator which looks very cool. Yet to try it myself.

Nice work! I managed to beat all 5 levels. I assume that's all the levels since it wouldn't let me continue past that point. I enjoyed the music, and the graphics were nicely done.

Just played the Kongregate version, the game is challenging.

Also, the player octo were cute! Hoping that you made a PC or Android version of this game.

If you made the PC version, I'll add it to my PC game list.
