When I click the link it gets blocked (I assume by my antivirus). Is there an alternative download site?

Weird, does it block the direct link to the Itch page too?

Shoaly You Can't be serious!
by CaptainD....
Spoiler: ShowHide

A simple, but effective game that I thought had a 90's feel...

Well executed.... The end result displays were a good thought...

It wore my keyboard arrows out and I had to be on the ball the whole time..

I found the font too small and the splash text flashing too fast.

Not exactly your usual adventure game but fell within the boundaries of the topic.

Overall a good game from the Captain....

Great application of the theme of the month! I played it a few times to get the hang of it. There's a lot going on there, with obstacles to avoid and trying to snag those fish.


In Search of Marina
Spoiler: ShowHide
To be blunt: this is everything a MAGS entry should be. Checks all the boxes that make a good adventure game: pleasing artwork, well-designed puzzles good story/objective/resolution to problem. I have to admit to feeling that emotion of despair when I NEEDED to get my friend back. The music score was actually just right to help create that mood. An impressive number of rooms for a short game. This entry easily got my vote.

Nice little game for a younger audience, my kids quite enjoyed playing it with me. Given the target audience I would have liked clearer hotspot detection and one of the word choices was a little off (the lesser f word) but overall an enjoyable little romp. I didn't play it with the help so not sure if that made a difference to the hotspot detection. The graphics made it looks like an interactive story book to me which was nice, and the simple language used was good for the target audience.

I felt rather sorry for the crabs though!

Nice and kid-friendly. I like the mechanics Slasher have used before with shortcuts to each location, and a message when there is no more to do there. The help system is nice, even though I doubt there is that much use for it. The game is pleasingly easy. But maybe my youngest will use the help. Beautiful graphics and cool characters. At first I thought the hero fish would have to ask the friends in the first location for help at the right spots, but then the items began to rain down.

Great pun & fun, especially in two-player mode. The game reminds me of those games where you start as a small fish, then grow everytime you eat a smaller one, but is sufficiently different to keep the interest.


I voted for

In search of Marina. It's an adventure game, and while I liked the other entry a lot, I'm an adventurer at heart.

Congrats to the winners. I just came in here to vote, but I missed the deadline. Oh well. I got to add another unfinished MAGS projects, so that gave me a warm feeling of nostalgia.  :=
