Krakens is a short casual arcade game.

You play as a swimmer who has to clear blocks by swimming all around them while avoiding to collide with krakens.

There are three types of blocks:

  • Diamonds. These count toward the total score
  • Key. Opens a portal to access the next level
  • Algae. Will slow you down
  • Heart. Will add one life

There are 16 levels overall. Good luck!


When using the keyboard, press I, J, K and L to move the swimmer around. 


Krakens is an opensource project and the code is located at https://bitbucket.org/lordblackthorn/kraken/src/master/

Indeed, a good game in the Amidar style.  :hatsoff:Hope you will release more games for the C64 in the future.

Thanks! We have actually two other games in WIP, but it's probably going to take years before they are ready

canny fun Amidar style game. Thanks.

Good game!

Thanks! This is our first game on c64, so we tried to keep it simple.

Small suggestions to make it simpler yet!
- Loader screen: skip by fire button
- Menu: JOY selected by default
