Under rating threshold (show) What kind of dietary needs does this guy have to require 25 coconuts just to survive for one day?

Developer response from Moshdef

He's supposed to be fighting starvation, but really he's fighting obesity.

Under rating threshold (show) I see all these questions about why he couldn't just let the coconuts fall to the ground and pick them up or why he needs 25 a day to stave off starvation... but I think the biggest question is how he manages to balance a bowl on his head while shaking a tree despite having no arms AND managing to move about 3 or 4 meters away from the tree to catch said coconuts (not to mention the fall, despite catching them in the bowl, would probably knock him out since it's on his head)... so the biggest question is most definitely, "Am I reading into this way too much?"

If people would actually like it, I'd be happy to upload a much more advanced version of Coconut Catch, with different levels, power-ups, etc.

Under rating threshold (show) ok so he got a stomachache from 25 coconuts, makes sense... next logical thought, I better eat less than 25 so i don't get a stomach ache. (The next day) I think i'm gonna eat 30 coconuts today.---> =) ---> wait what

Under rating threshold (show) this game needs badges

+ - !

Developer response from Moshdef

Hopefully someday! Week Two received a badge when it had a 4.10 after about 8,000 ratings, and badges are mostly awarded based on rating and amount of ratings. It's possible that this game could one day receive badges as well, but I think it will need a higher rating! Either way, thanks for the great compliment!

Under rating threshold (show) The story is interesting, I'd like to see how it will continue... but before making "week two" or what it will be, you should check something about the game. Playing a game with a quite good story, but no music or sounds (except at the start and in the end) is a little annying, it reminds me of the old '90 games lol. Also, you should ask someone to help you improve the graphics, don't take it bad but it's childish. Can't give more than 3/5 atm, hope you'll make somethings better (and longer) for the next parts that I'll sure be playing.

Thanks! I'll definitely try to improve on Week Two wherever I can.
