Oh wow, this is just amazing!!

I suggest making the islands smaller and making the controls not WASD for up, right, down, left, but forward, backward, and then turn clock and counterclock wise.

Islands have never felt more like crabs before! Laughed a lot. Sound-effects are great.
recursor says ...
Dude this is great! Very innovative and hilarious! Best I've looked at so far.
Hempuli says ...
Great fun! I doubt many would've thought of the theme this way. x)

The scores I'm giving you are way too high. This game was just silly! To be more serious though, I wish I had more control over my island's orientation and my stick, but I suppose the complete lack of control is really the charm of it. Can't wait to see this as an actual sport.
shockedfrog says ...
I'm thinking along the same lines, the scores I'm giving this are crazy but giving it less would seem crazy too. Shame about the audio issue but everything else is still brilliant. :)
Endurion says ...
So completely stupid it's hilarious! And it even works flawlessly.
I have no real control besides a basic direction and yet it's still fun!
A winner is you!
NiallM says ...
Fantastic! I love how the player's lack of control is what makes it so much fun - it's the complete opposite to the way most games would be designed.

Man you must really hate Newfoundland. (P.S. Nice trail effect)

So this is what would happen if we increased tectonic plate movement speed a little? Very realistic.
One of the few entries that made me guffaw unabashed out loud. Can't wait to play it with someone else.

Awesome premise, and, glad to see Molokini on there. Controls are a bit hard to get used to, and after a few plays I stopped getting a puck at the beginning of the game, but oh well. Very funny nonetheless.
demonpants says ...
Wow. I didn't know what I was expecting. And it was hilarious. I couldn't score any goals whatsoever but I still had a wonderful time. What a brilliant use of the theme.
SonnyBone says ...
OH MY! Yet again you deliver with the greatness. This is technically SOUND. It works, and it works well. The fact that it's FUN and super UNIQUE is just icing on the cake.
Australia is so friggin' fat, he just keeps batting the puck back into his own ... er ... continental ass crack?
ondrew says ...
Great idea. I had a lot of fun playing this one.
