Another impressive creation from Jakub, and made available through Oystergames, is Big Fish Hunting, a stunning game of deep sea harpoon fishing.
Generally speaking, aim and shoot the harpoon at the menacing appearing fish, while avoiding the cute ones. You have limited air with which to breath, but it can be partially replenished by sticking a puffer fish when inflated. Score the most points to get your name on the high score list.
Pretty standard stuff, but this game shines in most every other detail.
As mentioned before, Jakub has put together a Flash game of amazing quality with exceptional attention to detail. From the initial preloading screen straight through to the high score list, everything about this game radiates rays of brilliant commercial quality and professionalism. Even the performance of the game ran smoothly on my measly PowerPC Mac.
I especially like the subtle details in the swimming behavior of the fish. The animation not only looks natural, but when you miss, the other fish in the area take off as if they've just been spooked. And though I am not a fan of blood in games, the smallish liquid cloud effect when a fish is impaled looks very realistic. Even the presentation of the high score list on the rock under water deserves a mention for it reinforcing the design and theme of the game perfectly.
There is beautiful work being done by Jakub Dec, of Poland.
