A Testament to Great Mobile Games

Ink or Swim is one of the relatively few well-made games on the mobile market. The game is oozing with charm and character which shows how passionate the developers were about this game. An example being the environments. Every time you unlock a new character, not only do you unlock a new skin, but also a new background. These backgrounds are unique, and a few even have some skins for enemies and hazards. Another example of passion is the title and the style. Unlike most mobile games, this doesn't have some 'Flappy Bird-Crossy Road' clone title, it has a pun, which is great. Also unlike most mobile games on the market right now, the protagonist of the game isn't some ball and other geometric shapes that have no substance whatsoever. It's a bunch of squids and a variety of other marine creatures. I really hope this fantastic game gets more attention. It's clear that the devs put their heart and souls into this, and I really wish they would add a donation feature.

I was very surprised by this game. I heard about it by word of mouth and I expected it to be just another dull app-game. But, it’s got excellent pixel graphics, and simple but very addictive gameplay. But perhaps best of all are the controls. They are super responsive and feel very good.

Overall I think if you enjoy the infinite runner genre of games where you see how far you can go at once without messing up, this is a unique take on that type of game.
Either way, I think it’s worth checking out.

I really love it but it needs just one fix!!

So, I really like the whole arcade genre on this game but one thing I do think you should fix is when you get clams (the money) to get a new water world, it sometimes gives you a duplicate!! I wasn’t happy about this because you spend your 250 clams on nothing !!you should take out the water worlds you already have so that doesn’t happen. It would be the best game that I’ve ever owned if you just fixed this one thing! Thank you guys for making such an excellent game!
