    Here's another one of these upgrading games.

    While watching over the sea, you spot a large red X on a distant island. Treasure! Arrh!!

    But watch out, the waters are infested with sharks, bombs, and other obstacles. You'll have to launch your dingy from a cannon to try to make it across the water to the island in one run!

    A silly distance game, where you skid out across the water, collecting gold, upgrading your ship, and trying to reach that treasure. Yaarh!
    Controls

    Mouse aims cannon.
    Click and hold to charge it's power, then release to shoot your pirate.
    Use A and D or the arrow keys to keep your balance, don't hit the water at an angle.

    Do flips in the air for points. Collect coins, avoid sharks and islands.

    Enjoy

    Btw.. it took me 28 days to reach it. Pretty bad but whatever

    Awesome, a launch game that's actually challenging.

    I guess I'm really terrible at these games. I'm on day 60 and I haven't reached 1/10th of the way there.



    Oh. I just read I can use A and D to keep my balance.

    21 days man, even with full upgrades getting there is a challenge.

    Edited:

    The ending pissed me off though.

    45 degrees is the perfect angle, and always will be for gaining the most distance, in games with even the most basic physics btw. I could prove it if needed

    It's pretty obvious. It's the perfect balance between height and distance.

    Pigs can fly? You shitting me?

    On a serious note, I just tried it again and got day 10, pretty much where I realised A&D were useful on my first game.
