Awesome, but a few things may need fixing

S. Gavin Sears

Every once in while I will go to a dead end-which is fine. However, when I try to go back to find a new tunnel, but it will also become a dead end. I may just be unlucky, but this tends to always happen eventually in long games (100+). This usually happens with a certain section where it looks like a rock falling area but you cannot enter it. As well as this, when a way the jellyfish has gone turns into a dead end, the crack at the end can be entered with a small jellyfish. This causes the player to enter a glitchy black void. Furthermore, sea anemones sometimes clip into each other and the deep sea dragon does an unnatural tail flip when it does a 180 degree turn. I don't know if these are things that can be fixed, but I hope they are (by the way, this is intended to be constructive criticism, and I mean no offense). Also, what if there is a fish that can't be seen that swims around slower than a shark. This thing would light up right before it's about to get the jellyfish. What if a tunnel leading away from the abyss-that was so desperately found-turned out to be the mouth of a giant stonefish? Spooky

Creative, Authentic, Fun!


I have been playing Seashine for over a year, and it is still one of the best apps IOS has to offer.
I love how the creatures are based on real deep-sea organisms. Bobbit worms do exist, and they’re just as terrifying in reality as they are in-game. And I’ve just discovered the ghost shark (wow!), which made me want to write this review.
Even after all this time, I still enjoy the journey. Graphics are smooth— it never slows down to populate the next area. Just an excellent game with fun, creative updates that I always enjoy. I especially like the option for multiple jellies.

I have a few recommendations:
• The collectible stars should look like sea stars. It would make more sense, since they’re always hanging around on the walls
• More rooms?
• the hammerhead is wearing striped purple pajamas, and it takes away from the realism of the game for me
• one element I loved about the game in its earlier days was how there was no language involved in the exploration. It was just nature and survival. But now there are talking Easter island heads. They don’t say anything important, and it’s distracting from the overall tone that Seashine has to offer
• keep the parasites! They’re annoying, but avoiding them keeps me on my toes
• maybe fewer stars— they’re everywhere

I hope the app continues to update.
Thank you!

Great and Mostly Relaxing Game and Suggestion

Who and Whom

I really love this game and I'm glad you're still working on this! It's an amazing idea that I can't wait to be built upon and improved. I can see this game going places. One of my favorite things to do is just sit in a anemone and watch the fish swim by. This is where I have a suggestion though. It would be really nice to sorta have a "free-play" mode, where you're either invisible to other creatures and invincible, but you don't earn points, can't collect stars or secrets, and can't eat fish. And just to prevent any easy discoveries, you could make it so only creatures that the player has discovered can spawn in this gamemode.

Thanks for your review!

Hiding inside a sea anemone is also one of my favorite things. :) I will add more ways to hide and contemplate in an upcoming update.

You are right, a free-play mode would be great. It has been on my to-do list for a long time and a lot of players are asking for it.
I'm still trying to figure out what would be the best way to implement it. Maybe a secret jellyfish ? Or a simple mode that you enable in the options menu?
In any case, no point and no stars would count in this game mode.
Showing only things you have already discovered is a great idea! ;)
