Description

In an unlikely partnership, a friendly whale swims beneath an exploration boat attempting to recover crates of flotsam and jetsam in iceberg-crowded waters, which float on sea currents from the left side of the screen irrevocably to the right, threatening to splinter our small craft.

Fortunately, this whale has fond memories of Super Mario Bros 2, and is fully aware of the power of his waterspout -- which he employs, courtesy of the player's frantic mouse-clicking, to propel the boat up above the tops of the menacing icebergs. (Curiously, the whale is able to swim beneath the bergs without interference. Guess these really are the tips of the icebergs!)

Careful calculation is required to both get the boat over the icy peaks and to avoid having it surprisingly crash into a series of oncoming seaplanes up in the sky. One further reason to squirt is to intercept crates parachuting down into the briny deep, if those already floating in the arctic blue aren't enough for your limitless greed.
