MD5: a208a61fe44869217d907ede3bc77113
For System 7.0 - 7.6 - Mac OS 9
This game works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II,

You are a fish locked in the desperate game of survival in the Australian coral reef. As you struggle to live you'll learn about prey and predators in a reef.

Controls are simple, you use the mouse to guide your fish and click on fish to try and eat them. You can also move your fish behind coral and into caves to avoid predators.

There are several modes which mostly involve you gaining points by eating fish then exchanging those points to become a larger fish or one with other abilities. You can also use your points to make your own fish: the more points you have, the more useful bits you can buy to add to your fish.

The management password is "neptune".

I brought the "odell config" file over into Windows and opened it with Notepad++. It was mostly just encrypted nonsense with the only words I could read saying something about checking the Odell Down Under User's Guide. I then realized that was what the dialog box said when I tried to enable Management Mode and since the only other word in the entire file I could read was "neptune" I gave it a shot and it worked! Enjoy all!

And don't forget about its prequel, Odell Lake, for the Apple II.

Ahhhh! It's SCARY how you can completely forget a game you played for 10 years or so....scroll past the screenshot here and just get blown away by the recollection. Very fun game for what it was, if I remember right. Thank you, man! Wow, memories...
