Student Video Game Looking for Feedback

I am a part of a two man team in my high school game design class. This is one of our first ever games we created and would appreciate any feedback you might have for us. The game took us around a semester to make, with one person focusing mainly on artwork while one focusing on coding and mechanics. The part you will most likely be playing is the first and second level. I say this because of how I was testing in GameSalad and how I uploaded it (the scenes are not in order), although you might be able to access the rest of the game as well. Please share your thoughts with us if you have any.

    Really nice work. For a first game it's pretty impressive. I got through killing all the fish and to a boss level I think. I wasn't able to kill the boss, barely even able to hurt it it seemed.

    the game seems fun, but the controls are difficult to use. I didn't understand at first that you couldn't jump once you ran out of stanimia, and you could use all your staminia before you even get in the water. Using the harpoon was a neat effect, but felt strange that when you reeled it in the player moved instead of the fish.

    Some changes I would make (but these are just my opinion)

    1. Make a graphical menu, it's pretty basic
    2. Allow the player to swim around constantly, just move slower when they run out of staminia.
    3. When they reel in the harpoon, have the fish go to the player instead of the other way around
    4. Have spacebar (or something else) reel in the harpoon
    5. When I got to the angler, the instructions were cut off, so I didn't know what to do

    great start though, just needs some polish!

    As others have said, its a good start... just needs tweaking and polishing.

    I agree with Jonmulcahy that the fish should come to you when you reel in the harpoon.

    I like that you started off with the short intro sequence that led into the gameplay.
