Game description

Note!: This is Umihara Kawase Shun: Steam Edition, one game in the Umihara Kawase Trilogy. It is based on the DS and PSP versions of the game. Below is a description of the entire trilogy.

Easy to play, difficult to master, the Umihara Kawase Trilogy is a collection of three physics-based puzzle/platformer games with over 20 years of gaming history. Developed by the creators of the original game (Kiyoshi Sakai and Toshinobu Kondo), this cult classic was a Japanese indie smash hit!

Umihara Kawase is the name of our backpacking, Japanese, sushi chef heroine armed with a fishing rod, elastic fishing line, and a fishing hook. Face fish-like enemies, conveyor belts, spikes, watery pits, time travel and more. Collect items, and find your way to the end of each level. The deeper into this dream-like world that you venture, the more challenging the solutions and the greater the time pressure becomes. Along the way, look out for shortcuts and secret exits, and unlock bonus levels.

The elasticity of Umihara's fishing line sets the Umihara Kawase Trilogy apart from other games, giving unprecedented levels of mobility and discovery. Tightening the line or giving lots of slack can be the difference between success or failure. The elastic nature of the fishing line allows the player to stretch down to otherwise unreachable areas or be catapulted upwards.

Trilogy Features

  • Physics-based puzzle/platforming that challenges your reflexes and brainpower

  • Extreme elastic fishing-line physics give you advanced control

  • Many stages with branching paths across three complete games

  • Steam Workshop support in all three games for sharing replays

  • Four playable characters (in Sayonara Umihara Kawase)

  • Face giant, aquatic bosses like a tadpole, a seahorse, and more

  • Steam Achievements, Trading Cards, Leaderboards, and Cloud Saving

  • Full Steam controller support for all three games (optional)

Great platformer from the 90s

Originally released in 1997 for the PS1 in Japan, Umihara Kawase Shun is the sequel to the phenominal 1994 Super Famicom game Umihara Kawase where you play as Umihara Kawase, a 20 something Japanese sushi chef who uses her reliable fishing rod to get aross levels by flinging, propelling and grappling around, over and under plenty of platforms and walking fish enemies with the occasional boss fight or two depending on the path you take. The presentation has more to offer than in the original game. This time, 3D was incorporated into the graphics so the fields themselves are more lively and the layouts more complex. All the sprites appear to be hand drawn too. This time around, the fishing line is a bit shorter, but more elastic and springy so it might be easier for someone to traverse levels.Music is still nice like the rest of the games in the series. Not much else I can think of now so here comes the closing statement. Whether you're a veteran gamer or just getting into it, this game is challenging regardless. Anyone can pick up and play this game, but it takes skill to get far and master it. It's Umihara Kawase Shun.
