  1. That’s great, i was looking everywhere and was very sorry that windows port didn’t exist untill now…
    So please, can you send it via mail or give link to download?

  2. Not as good as the linux one… Anyway is cool!!!

  3. Link is dead … do you have one that works?

    • That’s a bummer! I’ll try to contact the developer and see if he moved it. I don’t have a copy myself (which seems foolish, in retrospect).

    • His site is back now, huzzah! Sounds like he had some kind of issue with his hosting provider.

  4. please post a mirror, the link is dead.

    • Unfortunately, I don’t have a copy to post. Hopefully the site will return, it has disappeared in the past.

      • I was fortunate enough to contact the author several years ago and get the source. I made a couple of modifications (like shark collision detection to show the original fish splat animation), and added some new objects. I’m hosting the binary here for anyone interested:

        • Hi Russell

          I’d be interested in getting in contact with you concerning your 1.3 version for Windows. I tried installing/using it on Windows 10 but it seems like there is a problem because it won’t start. Also I’d be interested in those source files, if you want to or are allowed to share them, because I’m learning to use C/C++ myself right now and this looks like a project I’d enjoy understanding and modifying for my studies. Feel free to shoot me an email at contact.simonnageleisen (at) gmail (dot) com if you want.
