Hero in the Ocean is one of the calmest, sweetest salt water puzzlers out there. It's just you and your submarine, floating around, collecting stars and picking up divers. Sure, occasionally you'll also come across some lasers, boulders, hidden rooms and a bomb or two, but Hero in the Ocean is still a thoroughly serene casual experience.

Liked it! As starchild said, it's not especially difficult, but plenty of thought clearly went into keeping it interesting. While the "physics" tag can be a turnoff for me with puzzle games, there's something just plain pleasant about the way the keyboard controls and inertia interact to put your sub right where you want it to be. (The guided missile mechanics were pretty cool, too.)

It's lovely and fun, but it needs a couple checkpoints on some of the later levels. One level has about 90% easy stuff once you figure out the puzzle, then a hard frustrating 5% section. Quite boring trying to get through.

This would be great for the first few levels of something bigger but right now it just introduces some concepts, which it doesn't re-use. I don't expect levels in the hundreds but it can be expanded quite some.

Last but not least: I found all the secrets and got all the stars but that's it. No bonus level, no wallpaper to download, not even a watery handshake. Quite anticlimatic.

Cute and fun, except for the "TA-DA" sound at the end of every level that totally doesn't fit in with the rest of the feeling.
