The Rogue Boat

I just finished my first two tries at Das Schurke Boot. That means the Rogue Boat. It is written in Java. The author is a 7DRL first timer. The game looks good for a first attempt.

Initially I saw a character and headed to it to fight. Turns out it must have been a depth charge or something. I got bumped off quickly. From then on, I avoided the falling depth charges.

I did have some problems figuring out my goal. I was able to travel to the edge of the ocean. Nothing special happened. Rising up or going down in depth seems to have no change. What is a rogue boater to do?

The controls were good and responsive in this game. I wish I could take a peek at the source code. I bet I could learn a thing or two about Java development.
