I really enjoyed this game. I thought the steady unlock of the map was very good and the game-play felt nice and controlled pretty well. Once again, very good game - I thought the natural progression of the game was nice. Really the only thing this game might have benefited from is a little joke or something of what you got from the chest was, but that's really up to you, and I thought it was fine without that. I really enjoyed becoming king of the sea, and nobody can take ruling the sea away from me, except for maybe Aquaman.
This is one of my older games, a fun and carefree platformer made for Ludum Dare 29. Also one of my first 'complete' game projects. The game kind of shows it's age but I thought I'd upload it for completeness sake. :)

Hi, I last played this game when it was featured on Nitrome.com, and I still find it enjoyable to play, despite the lack of a map :)
I really enjoyed playing your game! I uploaded my experience with it to Youtube and thought it would be appropriate to share it here. Thanks for making such a short, but sweet game, I definitely look forward to playing other games you make!
Hey I just noticed I somehow missed this! Thanks for playing and making a video! :D Really kind words btw, warms my heart. :)
That's the kind of game I love!
Solid platformer, nice metroidvania.
You search and find items, use them to explore new areas, etc.
Also it sounds so easy to make such a game, so few people actually made it :-/
But this one is definitely great here!
said to my self - "i will try it another time.. another.." - but cant resist and after some time
"And so, he become King of the Sea" - \wide smile on my face\
Oh Gods! how you guys can be so Amazing?! .. this is insane..
i love your works guys - i truly love it
it so solid.. many cool mechanic.. dynamic music.. meta\context ui..
i feel like this game keep all i love from S\NES era
(and game like "Duck tales" or "Little Mermaid" - even "Zen Intergalactic ninja" ha ha)
ps. only small thing i miss is - some little funny Idle-animation from my character
like some joke move or emote to screen
(what you guys do - keep me thinking about my own game-dev experience)
Love your work, looking forward to seeing more :D
I freaking loved it back in the day! I'm still find myself humming this music ever since. Haha
Cool, il like this kind of game, beautiful colors, nice music.
But I have few problems with controls.
In fullscreen, when the map appear, you must press "esc" for quit the map, but this quit too fullscreen.
The Xbox One pad is recognized , but the "D" and "F" is "UP" and "LEFT" directional cross.
Good job !
